That setting is just perfect… It looks like it cradles her! I don’t remember if you are going to wear her on your right hand….I always struggle with that myself. I wind up wearing the colored stone on my left hand with a band. Will she be a right hand ring?

I had her sized for my right but she fits comfortably on either ring finger. So I could see changing it up.

What do you think of the checkerboard cut on her? I looked through my loupe with strong backlighting and saw what looked like inclusions, but nothing drastic. I know she’s a dark stone so personally I’m not minding the checkerboard as I like how the light plays as she moves (second video especially). But I don’t know if I’ve seen anyone talking about like/dislike of the checkerboard look.

I really like the checkerboard look. I have a pair of stud earrings that has that cut. It’s known for its light play..

Good to know! It must be a CS thing and I’m such a noob regarding them. Haha!

I also don‘t know much about colored stones. I just recognize the cut from my earrings..:bigsmile:

I love garnets, my daughters birthstone. They have such a deep color compared to most rubies I see. Congratulations on Scarlett, May she never be gone with the wind.

It really does! I’m actually wearing them today as my “this girl is taken” set.

I've always liked that cut for colored stones. It strikes me as romantic, and reminds me of antique, leaded-glass window panes. (I have an amethyst cut that way.) Anyway, love your new ring, its striking, beautifully set and has great finger coverage! Enjoy!

Yes. I feel that too. She seems very romantic to me. I will one day take her in to get stats on her. But for now, I’m just enjoying the nice fall vibes from her. :kiss2:

First look! Walking out of the store with Scarlett on my hand.


Oh beautiful! I love the lacyness around the garnet! Don't know if you decided on a name but Lacy came to mind!!

It does seem lacy, doesn’t it? I was trying to figure out a good word to describe her and that would definitely be it!

And woah!!! #jotw!!! So incredibly honored!
