What a happy day this is!!! My emerald reset is finally concluded and the ring is on my finger!!!!
As some of you already know, DH bought me an emerald and diamond ring during our summer holiday. I loved the ring but I could tell that the quality of the side diamonds and the craftsmanship of the setting were not up to my standards!!
So the moment we came back home from the vacation I went to my jeweler, who has an amazing bench and we decided on a totally new setting in yellow gold. I have incorporated two pear cut side diamonds, which are .80 tcw, E color and VS1 clarity. The emerald's dimensions are 14×10.
Initially I was considering choosing a satin finish for my setting but at the last moment I went for shiny finish and I'm very happy with my choice!!!
I am delighted, to say the least! My 50th birthday is also coming up towards the end of the year and I really wanted a significant piece of jewelry to mark this milestone!!!!
I' m sharing some photos!

Absolutely gorgeous, I think Emeralds look equally good in y or w/g.

Thank you so much for the kind words @nala !!! It is my 50th birthday that's coming up too!!! By the way, I never owned an emerald before and i wasn't really aware of how amazing emeralds can be! My mother owned a whole collection of emerald pieces but I hadn't ever worn or carefully observed them. This one has totally mesmerized me and I have become a fan of emeralds for life !!!

Thank you @ItsMainelyYou ! Truly she has a great presence but I've come to realize that she's attracting more attention than I need. I've been wearing her every day to work and I noticed that people are being distracted by her while I'm talking!

But of course, look at her. You will break some hearts if you stop wearing her, but I understand.

@ItsMainelyYou, so far I've heard the most flattering comments but I've also heard:
1. Is this fake?
2. This emerald is way too big.
3. This is not something that should be worn casually, on a daily basis, but only on special occasions...

What can I say? I am excited about the ring and I like wearing her every day! What is the point of having pieces that are not worn and enjoyed enough? Additionally, I am a lawyer and in my professional environment it's not awkward and rare for ladies to wear beautiful jewelry. So I think that I might just continue wearing her proudly, no matter what people think!!!!
Besides, as @kenny would say: people vary!
