My diamond (5.01ct GIA L/VS1 Early Round Brilliant) is in its third setting since I got it, and I TOTALLY LOVE this one!!!

Here's a link to my previous thread (in the second setting):

[URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/penelope-5ct-early-round-brilliant-diamond-in-a-new-ring.202967/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/penelope-5ct-early-round-brilliant-diamond-in-a-new-ring.202967/[/URL]

And here's a link to my thread about my band:

[URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/7-avc-band-vly-in-18k-rose-gold-by-be.217280/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/7-avc-band-vly-in-18k-rose-gold-by-be.217280/[/URL]

So, rose gold has my heart! I love how it celebrates the warmth rather than trying to hide it. I am thrilled with this new setting. All three of my solitaire settings were made by the same jeweler: jewelryhoo on eBay. They also have an Etsy shop called ChangxingJewelry. They are in China. The communication during the CAD process is slow and frustrating, but they don't give up, and their pricing and quality is phenomenal.

My ring size is currently a 7.5. I apologize for not waiting for the cut on my finger to heal before taking pictures. I'm just too excited to wait, haha!

Oooh! I have been waiting for this. It's absolutely gorgeous Tourmaline. Seems your beautiful stone has found it's forever home.
The setting is so gorgeously made; it radiates luxury and quality. I love the flowing lines and the warmth of the rose gold.
It looks amazing on its own as well as stacked. Great choice.

I love the combo of that setting with your stone! The prongs are gorgeous, and the rose gold makes your center stone stand out in the best way :appl: Congrats!

Stunning - I love it! And your eternity band is just delicious!

Great choices - and I absolutely agree with not fighting the color, the rose gold pumps it up and makes it look super lush!

So glad to hear its third time lucky and that you're really delighted with it.
They both look gorgeous and I love the rose gold settings, it's a great look.
Thank you for showing us, it's actually quite inspiring for a little 'warm' marquise I have!

Love the stone and the rose gold setting. Interesting you used Jewelryhoo on EBay in China. I assume you did NOT send your stone to them to custom make the ring and set the stone. Was wondering about the quality of their custom work...thanks for the testimony to their work. The prongs look really good.

How long did the whole process take?

No, I did not send my stone to them ever, haha. I have a local setter who is really good. He actually lets me stay and watch! Be warned, the communication with the maker of the ring was very frustrating. The first CAD was terrible! it took many, many adjustments. It took a few months. I was not paying for ease of communication, haha. It was inexpensive, so if it hadn't worked out, I would have survived. But I'm glad it did! If you want to work with them, you need time and tenacity, but the results can be really great. :)

I loved your last setting, but I have to admit this setting makes your stone look both larger and draws your eye visually more to focus upon the centre stone as well. Congrats, it looks great!!!!

I wish I could click "Like" on each of your posts to thank you! Thank you, everyone. I am smitten. Today I am wearing my band on my let hand and my solitaire on my right, but they still seem to be a set, which feels nice. :)
