This is a Christmas gift for my Mother-in-Law who loves jewelry, but doesn't really have much of her own.

The Details
  • Size 6.75
  • 18K Gold
  • 1.75 ct Chrome Green Tourmaline from Precision Gem (purchased in 2018)
  • Side stones are K OEC, 0.30 ct each (tcw 0.60)
  • Made by David Klass
I'll post some more pictures once I have in hand, but I got these teaser pictures tonight and couldn't help myself.

Anything I need to call out to David before it ships?

In CAD 4 - It seems like the right diamond has less of the upside down V. Or put another way - it isn’t as spread out as the left upside down v. So the right diamond looks more scrunched in. Does that make sense? The right side has more of an angle than the left I think.

I think I understand, there is more negative space/material taken away on the pink arrow area, and less on the blue arrow area.

Do you think someone got a little heave on the polishing on the pink arrow area? I'm guessing the right/blue arrow area could be matched, do you think? I didn't even see that when I posted.

Exactly! But I think in looking at it again that the right diamond is angled more than the left.
it may very well be the tilt of the ring in the photo too. Ask DK to confirm the diamond angles basically match.

I think it turned out beautifully and what tiny difference that may show in these blown up photos will probably not show on the actual ring. It might be that it could be polished a bit more, but I certainly wouldn't ask them to remake the ring over this. I don't see any difference in the angles though, that Caf mentioned. They look the same to me for what that's worth.

Are you looking at some other images? These are not CADs. These are pictures of the actual ring.

So agree with @Lookinagain . That is such a mirror detail blown up huge. It may just be the photo and tilt and
even if it isnt its such a tiny detail that wouldnt even "ping" in my book.

I think its a beautiful ring! Your MIL is one lucky lady!

That green with the buttery gold..... :lickout:

LOL, my MIL was an auburn/darker red head/ginger feature before she went gray. She has very specific tastes in clothing, greens, warmer purples, rust colors, etc. She always describes herself as an 'autumn' gal, so I think this will be right up her alley.

Your MIL is a very lucky lady, and I am certain she'll love the ring as well as the very nice gesture.

I talked to DK about it, he said the ring wasn't laying perfectly flush when stood up/ pictures being taken, and reminded me that the diamonds are actually 0.30ct and 0.31ct, so slightly different shape. Also, everyone in the family wears classes, so I don't think it would be noticed even if it was an issue.
I think it is great and just going to leave as is.

Good decision. Even if the family didn't need glasses, I doubt this minuscule detail, if it even exists in real life, would be noticed. It's a beautiful ring. Don't let this get into your head so that it makes you feel that it is less than that. Your MIL will love it and the thought behind it.
