Who made this one?
2 Armenian brothers in Bangkok. They just stopped dealing directly consumers as of last month however :wall:

After JTC in Las Vegas, they got a big order from a major jewelry house in NYC and are now gearing up for a more large-volume trade-focused business.:cry2:

Here are a few mockups. Thoughts?

I think I’m kind of liking the last one…at least for the moment :lol-2:

If it were me, I would go with option #3 or option #4. Given the almost neon glow, I'd go with white metal. I'm a sucker for bezels, but this stone needs those claw prongs!
I saw a nice trellis three stone on David Klass's instagram from a few years ago--the center had six claw prongs and the smaller side stones had three. Maybe something "swoopy"?

I’m unfortunately going to be stuck in the pondering stage for a bit.

Think of it this way.

While you're "stuck", the ruby is also "stuck" - conveniently in its gem box, available for you to take it out, hold it, spin it around, enjoy it, and overall be smug about how you have this amazing stone and all the rest of the world doesn't. :P2

The moment this stone ends up in a ring, it's also going to end up on the hand of your beloved, and I somehow doubt she'd be all too willing to share it after that. :mrgreen:

Point being, enjoy it while you still have it. :lol:

That’s nothing less than brilliant!!!

I’m also stuck waiting and saving for a setting. I have my gemmmies in a box on my desk resting under my monitor so I can look at them while I wait.
