FINALLY!!
I put my new Gemology Kit to good use, today!!

These images were taken using my ASET imaging scope, an iPhoneXR flashlight, an envelope & a napkin, and an iPhone5SE camera.
I used the tweezers to hold the diamonds in place, to get clear shots.
In some of the images you can observe obvious tilt, but, all in all, I’m rather impressed with my feeble skills...lol!!
I’m even more impressed with how beautiful these little Asschers look!!! :kiss2:
Yoram & GemConcepts are just FANTASTIC!!!
These photos are not in any discernible order. You can see there are multiple images of the same stone, several times, repeated!!!

Without further ado:

I can’t wait to set these little beauties in a band!!! :lol-2:

Your stones are beautiful and I can't wait to see the finished piece.

I ordered one of these kits a while back and love playing with it, enjoy! Mine came with a small back lit light box to place the stone on so that you could completely cover the stone. I think that may be why the colors are so light, I believe that the ASET scope needs to line up more with the girdle.

Thank you so much!! I had to be a little creative to capture these photos!! I think I’ll look into a backlit box, as suggested by @Octo2005!! The images should show more even dispersion!
I am enjoying this process....even the waiting. I think I’ll appreciate the process, and the ring, more.

Do you know how you’re going to set them? Prong? Channel? So excited!
U-Prong.
The sketches are on page 5 of my thread. :mrgreen2:

There will be additional, bead-set rounds on each profile side of the band, at the bottom of each “U”.
The scrollwork & milgrain detail from my wedding set will be added to this band. Each Asscher will be snuggled in place by double claw prongs. ;)2

Thank you so much!!
I did a lot of research, and have had many inspiration photos, over time.
This has been a dream of mine since DH & I started our relationship, together, 5 years ago. I knew I wanted a piece of jewelry that symbolized our story, as long as we were intending to build a future, together.
I have changed the design about 3 times. I finally decided on the one likeness that made my heart skip the most beats, adjusted it, and edited it to get to my own design. It will have a reinforcement bar, at the base, to make the ring more sturdy, and less fragile. This creates a “buttercup” design, but it will still be open to allow light to pass through, and give the Asschers light exposure they need for optimal performance. The double claw prongs should create an illusion that the diamonds are floating within the setting, and also emphasize the cut corners of the Asschers.
I intend to wear this ring, every single day. I’d actually love it, if DH used this band, when we renew our vows!
The bead-set rounds on both sides of the profile, and the scroll & milgrain detail on all 3 sides (top of the shank, along the buttercup, and along the bar), are intended to continue the design from my wedding set so I can wear the band with my set, or alone.
This piece will be strong, but petite & feminine, with a tapered band (it tapers from Top of the ring to the bottom), which will allow me to stack it, if I wish. It also makes it less chunky in appearance. This feature will make it more Top-heavy & it will likely spin, but I don’t have issues with that. My others spin, and it doesn’t bother me.
The diamonds are over 3mm sq. The widest portion of the band will be the top portion, which will be approx 4-4.5mm. It tapers down to 1.8mm from there.
It’s completely unique (I’ve never seen anything else close to it). I’d like to copyright the design & they will destroy the original mold. I still want to keep the sketches, CAD’s, etc for myself. This is a one of a kind creation of my making. It will be nice to have all of that to keep to remember my journey.
I can only hope it turns out to be as magnificent IRL, as it is in my head...lol!!! :lol-2:

Those images are spectacular! I'm so glad you're enjoying your kit and making good use of it already. :)) I am CERTAIN that your masterpiece will be more than magnificent, it will be superb!! I love u-prongs for the very reasons you stated, and I love buttercups as well. I wish I had your creativity. :doh:

I'm in the middle of it right now with the station necklace, and there is NO creativity bursting. Only anxiety and indecision. :eek2: I wish I could find the right inspiration.
