Nothing to add that hasn't already been said - just really excited to see the final product! I love a bezel & I love engraving, so basically this is right up my alley!
Thank you for catching that, I am not at my best today. Spent the morning trying to catch a neighbor’s dog that got loose. Hours in the rain with the animal control officer and we still didn’t get him! So I’m a bit exhausted.
I appreciate though your perspective about an airline making the center stone look smaller. Do you have a pic of your ring with the airline? I’m just so worried about messing this up!
Thanks @CHRISTY-DANIELLE for the reassurance, it is very helpful. I think part of my problem with this project was not knowing what direction to go after realizing the dahlia wouldn’t work for me. That’s okay though because I figured it out and things are moving along. Just a blip on the radar is how I need to look at it.
@Spring Day, I always find your posts so relatable and entertaining
I am 99% sure I’m doing the airline, @Slick1 did a markup for me last night and I think it adds to the vintage feel. That was actually my main concern with a bezel is keeping it from looking too modern.
I just wanted to say to you and everyone else who has taken the time to comment that I really appreciate all the support, suggestions and reassurance. Means a lot to me.
@diamondseeker2006, I had no idea this was a PS’ers piece! I just want to make sure that you are okay with me using this design. Had I known, I would have asked first.
That said, thank you so much for the suggestions, they are very helpful especially about the diameter of the halo itself to accommodate the engraving. Also I wasn’t going to do a donut but I may have to in order to spare the undercarriage, so again I appreciate that suggestion,
Obviously I love this design, your daughter’s pendant is gorgeous but again, if you would rather it not be replicated then I completely understand.
Oh, it must have been someone else that mentioned the pendant! I now have no idea who it was!
It is 100% fine for you to use the design!!! DK has made other engraved halo rings before, anyway! I think your stone will be great in the reverse metals! Are you going to use 18k yellow gold? I think with the depth of color of your stone, that would be best.
Oh it looks nice but seeing it on you, I think the ring and your finger can definitely take a little bit of extra width on the bezel and as you say good for the engraving!
