Caren just emailed me Peachy's CADs last night. It took every bit of self-control not to E-stalk her on Etsy for updates. The setting has elements of Yssie's swoopy trellis ring (which I always adored, hope you don't mind Yssie!), a 14K rose gold basket and delicate claw prongs. I wasn't sure if it could be done. But Dan pulled it off to a tee.

You don't see the claw prongs in the CADs but Caren assured me that they will add that after casting. This is actually my first time working with CADs, so it's really cool and exciting to witness the birth of a setting.

It should be a few more weeks! :appl:

eeee! a trellis setting with pear side stones! I love the look of pear sides, but have never seen them in a trellis setting despite all my searching. It's nice to know it can be done!

I can't wait to see your finished ring! I think the rose gold will be divine :appl:

Thanks Kas! I was really nervous about how the design would work, but Dan did a really good job. I didn't think a pear trellis would be possible either until I saw the CADs.

I was also debating between RG or YG, but I really wanted to enhance Peachy's color.

I'm really hoping it look just as good in real life!

That looks brilliant! - enough innovation to make it striking, but classic enough to let Peachy speak clearly. It is gonna look SO cool! Dan is the master at the moment, I swear - he will make this ring be perfect for both Ms. Peachy and you :twirl: :twirl: :twirl:

Thank you so much for the kind words Natty!! :wavey: I'm so glad you like it, since my taste tends to be on the "unique" side. lol Your words of encouragement really helps, as does seeing your finished ring.

Have you thought about what type of band you're going to pair it with?

Awww shucks Zesty, thank you so much for the kind words and encouragement!! :D It really helps, and it makes me feel even more confident about the design. It was all a "gut" feeling. So I went with it. You know, I've been stalking your and Natsplat's threads, trying to absorb as much detail of your rings as possible. And they both came out stunning. I even told Caren and Dan in the convos.

Gah, that would be so awesome if it can be done in a little over a week! I was going crazy just waiting for the CADs.

Are you going to get a matching YG band for your ring?

ETA: Laila, thank you! I'm so glad you like it. :wavey:

You know, I thought about getting a yellow gold diamond band to match. I'm a non-matchy, mixing my golds kind of girl though. After taking tons of photos, I realize just how much I adore the contrast that my WG sparkly pave band provides ! They are both 18k, together they pack a powerful punch! I'm in love.

I know the feeling, waiting and waiting for your ring. I was chomping at the bits, stalking my convos daily hoping for a 'Caren response'. It will done before you know it. I believe it will be a spectacular piece! :love:

Thanks for posting the CADs! It's so fun to follow a project to the finish line. Your ring reminds me of a luscious fruit with beautiful green leaves on a vine of gold.

I agree, I think the WG makes a nice contrast with your new ring. It really makes it stand out without competing with it.

You can always switch it out with your YG band if you ever want variety.

I love how buttery yellow gold is, especially at high carats. :lickout:

So is this your e-ring or a RHR?

Thanks again for the kind words!

Oh wow, I love your description. I never thought of it like that, but you make it sound so dreamy, like an enchanted place! :love:

I love following other people's projects too, especially when they start out with CADs. It's like watching the pregnancy to birth. ::)

KT, thanks! Pauly D. is this guy from The Jersey Shore show. He always yells out, "The cabs ah heaahh!!"

I figured it was Jersey Shore (and I'm from Jersey! :lol: ) but I don't watch it enough to know that's what he says...too funny!! :lol:

Can't wait to see how the finished product progresses! It's really lovely. I'm waiting for some stones to finally get Daniel to do some rings for me and I can't wait!!!

Thanks Indy! I'm so relieved you recognize the title. I was starting to wonder if I was the only one that watches that show. Yes, I'm ashamed to admit it. :oops:

Amy, thank you so much!! I love how Ronnie says, "You changed bro!" in his raspy voice. lol

KT, thanks again!! I can't recommend Daniel and Caren enough. They are so nice, professional and they create really nice pieces. That's awesome that you're from Jersey! Is the beach really as nice as it looks on t.v.?

I can't wait to see your upcoming projects!

My tastes are "unique" too! :lol: but it's fun, isn't it?
My wedding band has been given to me by my mum: it's a 1920s 22k yg barrel band.

I shall get married with it, but mix it up with wearing the band on its own sometimes (as I know too much 22k next to 14k can be wearing...). Also I am pretty sure I shall buy a 14k rose gold twisted thin band to wear as an alternate wedding band (but am a little wary of the alloys clashing, so might go for yg instead).

Decisions...! :twirl:

Natty, the band is beautiful! I love high karat YG, especially 18K and higher. Is it heavy? I want to get a heavy gold band like yours too but will probably have to wait until gold prices go back down.

Isn't your e-ring 14k RG too? I think the twist band is a nice idea, but why do you worry about alloys clashing?

Centralsquare and Crasru, thank you!

Amy, the center stone is a 2.56 Peachy Gray diamond and the side pears are .62 tsavorites.

Is it done yet? The new tsavorites are a better choice than the previous ones.

It's fairly heavy, but in a gorgeously-heavy way: nothing that would be uncomfy. I meant clashing as in the colours: my ering is rather on the peachy side of 14k rose, and I'm concerned that it might clash slightly with a more normal pinky rose gold, but I'm probably overthinking it too much (as usual :wink2: )
