Here is a link to the CS forum for the details on the pink sapphire ring: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/van-craeynest-and-the-pink-sapphire.160269/ The thread also has a discussion of how I chose Van Craeynest to make my rings.

And here's a photo of one of the details I didn't include in CS:

First, I needed a setting for this:

Stats:
1.75 ct
L
VS2
a hair over 7mm

Then, I decided that I would need a WB to go with it, which ended up with this:

Here's the thing I found really fascinating about the VC rings--you need enormous photos, good eyesight, or a loupe to really see the incredible, breathtaking detail in all of the VC jewelry. All of that gives a very, very false idea of how delicate and comfortable the rings actually are. The photos I and others have posted of the various VC styles makes them look heavy and about the size of the class ring worn by a very large, football-playing high school senior. Instead, they are comfortable to wear, and very feminine and flattering on the hand. I'm now trying to talk my DH into having a WB made by VC!

Mercy I've died and gone to heaven. Your sapphire is lovely but gracious, that AVC is true, true perfection---of all the rings I've fallen for on PS with an AVC, yours is hands down the best. I am swooning. The set is spectacular. :love: :love: :love: :love:

happybear Thank you for your comments!

rubyprincess and Farleysmom: Those are incredible compliments, thank you. I know I'm not the first PS'er to set an AVC in Van Craeynest, or even this setting, but they really do seem to go together, don't they?

D&T: Thank you! The details are amazing in all of the rings, but I think it's the milgrain on the edge of the leaves, and the minute piercing that really make my heart go pitter-pat.

diamondseeker2006: I know, I feel so lucky, and I hardly know which one to stroke and coo over first!

Amy's Bling: Thank you, that was exactly the way I felt when I opened up the signature VC envelope and saw it!

bright ice and mrssalvo: Thank you so much for your comments.

BHMom and Stargurl78: Van Craeynest and the AVC's really seem to go together, whatever style setting is chosen, I agree! Stargurl78, thanks for admiring the sapphire, too, it has got to be one of the most perfectly balanced rings I own, and I love looking at the details.
