oOooO~! Fancy~ You did a great job, I bet she'd love it. If you don't mind me asking, are you keeping the original e-ring?

The new ring is amazing - wow - just so so lovely!! Please do put the original stone in an ultrasonic cleaner, however - you've definitely improved in quality, but the first stone is mighty dirty too.

Great idea, it's nice to keep sentimental stones. :))

Your upgrade is just perfect. The difference in appearance is so remarkable, a great example of how 'good' and 'excellent' compare in real life photos. Congratulations!
