I've got the layout and gems. Haven't started thinking about the basket or gallery, which is where I tend to be the most picky about my custom rings.

I've thought about a fleur de lys pattern, but also thought it doesn't stick to the clean art deco aesthetic. So please help me find a basket/gallery design that is simple and clean, but interesting?

I really love your stones and how you placed them. Love colors, shapes and majestic glow! It is going to be a super beautiful and well balanced ring! My daughter's dream is to collect all the beryls and create something very special too. She is very creative and has an artistic talent. I have zero talents and a very little knowledge needed for creating pieces of jewelry, I can't help you. But after seeing your latest creation (big and beautiful ring with blue sapphire) I believe you will make something outstanding. Good luck!

What are these yellowish stones on the sides? They may be colorless and what I see is a reflection of heliodore.

I am obsessed with this designer:


He has some incredible engravings that I think could be really cool for a ring like this.

Thank you, Musia! They are colorless and probably just reflections. Besides the three colors of beryl, there are four pieces of F VS diamond: two baguettes, and two princess cuts. What a coincidence that you're commenting here, on the very same morning I received the CAD I approved. See post below.

If you’ll let us see the end result! :lol-2:

I like the examples of these two rings that mix swirls /curlicues with very straight lines /Greek key
Thanks! Those are very cool inspirations, but coming a tad too late, as I just received the second round of CAD and approved it for casting. See post below.

Wow, that designer definitely does have fabulous engravings that would be awesome to have in this ring! I'm already committed to working with Inken, though, and would feel bad for taking inspiration too closely from a design/jewelry professional I'm not paying. That said, my plan is to get some sort of engraving, so the gallery view (shown in post below) isn't too "empty" and plain.

CAD Green beryl & multi-gem ring  V2.jpg
Ta-da! This is based on my rough sketch, and the idea is to keep the stones flat so that we don't get tilt window from the low RI beryls. The CAD designer did make a silly mistake of rendering the outermost stones green, but that will be the diamonds baguettes.

I think this is amazing and will be one of your most stunning rings to date! Can’t wait to see the finished project!

Wow! Just wow amazing. Seriously one of my favorite pieces on here. And who did this for you?! because that was FAST!

I worked with Inken of Enhoerning Jewelry. She's great all around, knowledgeable and is able to easily understand what I want. The whole process was 1 week for CAD draft 1, 1 week for CAD draft 2, 1 week for casting and cleaning, and 1 week for setting stones. I feel like I'm getting David Klass level quality at a more affordable price point and faster turnaround. Not that I've worked with David Klass before. I'm basing my opinions only based on what other projects here have been quoted, and I think Inken's prices are reasonably competitive.

Good to know! It’s a gorgeous ring and I can’t wait to see hand shots!

Going to receive this Saturday. IMG-20210722-WA0000.jpg IMG-20210722-WA0001.jpg IMG-20210722-WA0002.jpg
Will have more pics after I receive it :)

Talk about a long wait until Saturday! I love how it's architectural and so gorgeously Art Deco while the side view looks like a lotus flower. What an amazing juxtaposition of manmade design and natural design. Wow!!

Thank you! Hand shots are below.

Like it and well done. It’s prettier than other Deco inspired designs IMO.
Thank you, Neptune!

This ring is epic! Love it a lot! :kiss2:
Awww! Well, I love it, too...

Thank you, I like to have a sense of balance in my designs. Since the top view was all straight lines, I wanted to have some curves from the side.

The color combination is outstanding!
Thank you, I hope it's the best examples of heliodor, emerald, and aquamarine colors... At least in these sizes.

Is it here???!
Yup! :razz:

The ring at its best and worst. It looks sooo good in natural light! Less impressive in dim artificial indoor lighting, but still sets my heart a-flutter.

Stunning @voce !!! JOTW contender!!! I’m pretty miffed that colored stones don’t get enough JOTW IMHO :)

Actually, I thought it was more because I like to keep a low(er) profile and not post them in the Show Me the Bling! forum, as Niel and some others do.

But, this ring looks like a colossus next to my other rings, and I have trouble seeing myself pairing it with any others on my right hand (wider than any finger). On my left hand, I have to wear it on the index finger so it doesn't knock against the diamonds of my engagement ring.

Wow! When it catches the reflection (second and last pics in natural light) , the colours are so bright and so clean. It's magic!

Very cool design. So nice to hear about your experiences with Inken. Their bench seems fabulous! I also love that they seem to offer hand forged pieces too.

No, but thanks for bringing it to my attention! :lol-2:

I feel like this is the size and style a celebrity might wear, and now I'm super self conscious about wearing it out...:oops2:

I was checking whether you liked the post or not and the line of people is soooooooo long, I didn't have a patience to finish :lol-2:
