This is what I came up with after deciding a larger cluster with airlines was going to be too large at 19mm. I mean, is there such a thing? Not sure, but I would hate to get a ring and not wear it.
Decided to look at David’s IG and immediately was drawn to this pendant. The bezel would be yellow with a platinum halo. Also there would be flowers at the north, south, east and west points just like the one you see at the top.
I’m not super fussy about the bottom half but I thought this would work:
Basically everything except the halo will be yellow gold. I figure this way the diamond has yellow right next to it to enhance the color but has contrast with a white halo. Also the engraving and flowers give it a bit more of a vintage feel. This will be my first bezel set piece, I’m looking forward to having something that I don’t have to worry about a whole bunch of diamonds with....or prongs!
Just waiting on the Cad from David, bless him he has the patience of a saint!
Wow! It's spectacular!
I think that "space" is a reflection from the black pebble.
I'm very happy for you!! You won't want to wear any other ring.........
I asked DH what he thought:
“Is the diamond yellow? It’s supposed to be that color? Oh okay, it’s different”
@stracci2000, Gotta send him to bling boot camp apparently
He doesn’t faze me at all, he is a toy guy and I think most of his stuff is ugly so it all evens out.
Part of what really appealed to me about the engraved halo was not having to worry about small diamonds. This is really going to be a tank piece, not that it will get abused but I can comfortably worry less about it.
We need a breakfast date so we can catch up on all the bling. I’ll drive you around in my new wheels
I just casually checked my email this morning and was so surprised! He did an amazing job. Now I will say this diamond is rather hard to photograph, it looks peachy but it really is yellow, or at least it did before. It was also in a much lower karat yellow gold though.
I am going to ask him about what looks to be a space in the last picture on the right hand side where the halo attaches.
