My new diamond is really clean and white. You don't often see large diamonds in the colorless range, so I'm pretty chuffed. And since you're in mourning, let me give you a progress-almost-finished shot to perhaps ease your pain, or at least distract you a tiny bit!

ETA It's an F VS2 3.05ct with 2 x .62.5. 4.3ct in total, all ACAs.

Thanks, @mrs-b! That does help my pain and suffering. ;-) I really love the setting and the way the side stones are tucked under. The proportions are perfection! When creating this, did you ever worry about the side stones only having a prong and a groove holding them... as in potential to lose one or even damage to the exposed girdle?? I absolutely love the look of it, but I'm rough on rings, so... ya know. ;-) It's soooo pretty!!

Oh!! I forgot to ask who did the setting?? DK again? @mrs-b
Yes, DKJ did the setting and I did the design. I don't really worry about the durability of my rings - I'm very light and easy on jewelry and have never broken or really bumped anything. Like - ever. Losing something is more my speed! :- /

And I *just* received a text from Amy as I've been talking to you, and she's coming over this evening to drop it off. :))

Awwww - I'm sorry, @msop04!

I haven't thrown out the setting, or anything heinous like that. I'm in the process of buying a truly stunning 5.3ct tourmaline to put in it.

As for the diamond - it was awesome. I suspect if I'd never put it in a halo, I would have kept it as a soli and not traded it in. But I *did* put it in a halo, I *did* see the tint, and then I *couldn't* unsee it.

Whoa, MrsB! I just happened to open this thread and saw your posts! Your new ring looks fabulous! F color is awesome! You might make me envious! I have been torn about whether to do a 3 stone or different style solitaire, so I can't wait to see your new ring! I really like the proportions of the center and sides!

A few months ago some very helpful contributors suggested that I visit The Diamond House as we were travelling to Antwerp to buy a diamond. Well here it is, set into my own design, lovingly created by Harveys the Jewellers in Manchester UK. A terrible photo, it must be said! D colour, VS1, 0.60 ct. Set into yellow and rose gold with diamond accents. I don't get to wear it until my wedding day, so it's back in the jeweller's safe. Altogether a remarkable experience, made a lot simpler with your guidance!

Hello it’s so beautiful. We’re you happy with Harvey’s? I’m in manchester and looking for someone to rest my ring? I love vintage designs and it’s so hard to find someone recommended in the uk!

I love them together, but would wear them switched with the diamond band on the outside. Your 5-stone is amazing!

Showing off a new-to-me 5 stone! (Don’t mind the baby in the background trying to learn to use a spoon :))). What do you think, too much stacked with the trinity? I’d wear on another finger, but lately I just detest rings on any fingers besides my ring fingers.

Love this ring so much but love the man who gave it to me even more. We celebrate three years on 11.15!

Bespoke 6.33 ct center, 9.53 tcw, H, VS2.

Every time I look at close up photos of my fingers I can't believe how ragged my nails look! Anybody feel me on this one? :oops2:

I just got this today. It is made from three of my Mom's diamonds and a kite diamond I found.

How wonderfully sentimental. This is so lovely and thoughtful. I hope my daughter will one day lovingly wear all my jewelry and think of me.

And this is the whole set; I'm calling it Valhalla, because to me, in the world of rings, this is paradise. This is my new anni band to go with my 3 stone, and a new wedding ring to line up with the other two.

These rings could not be more perfect for me - so I'm officially signing off on this project. This is it for me. I'm out. Wedding set complete.
