I think it’s quite beautiful in an unusual sort of way and it looks great on your lovely hand. BUT, I know what you can do with stones and design so I can imagine what a fabulous piece/pieces you’d put together with the stones! Yummy! Can’t wait to see what you do!

It would be something like one of these. The one with the ns larger stones I’d use the pears 86C5D71E-8B48-4096-8713-9DB0A4EEB52C.jpeg D8A33D44-0E26-45F6-B7D3-30ADA9DA45DD.jpeg 3EBF11B5-4060-4C05-A0CA-28766E5DF891.jpeg

I’d prefer a pad, ruby, or pink spinel as I want it classic and my blue and yellow sapphires are already the perfect versions of what they are

Do you have a second contender you passed on? Lol.
I’m working on basically the same project you are (again, weird) and just purchased something not totally sold on.
But yeah- as said before it looks like really nice workmanship on a design that reminds me of either poker or those old trippy sun/moon faces.

I would be loath to destroy the panel with the pears.

Since the title mentioned 'alien', that's all I saw. It's gorgeous though. I like unique pieces.

I said exactly the same thing, the ring with the slightly creepy eyes and mouth.... but it's still beautiful in a weird kind of way.

I think it would make a nice pendant with the crescent at either the top or the bottom and the diamonds on the side used to bling up the bail... but as a ring... not my style. But what gorgeous diamonds!

Seriously, HOW do you find these things? Tell me your secrets.

Beautifully made.
But I cannot unsee the eyes. I would be tempted to use the stones as it might not get enough wear as is.

Yeah it looks like an alien but those diamonds and craftsmanship is amazing. I think you could rock it as is @Niel but only if you love it. If not then yeah take it apart and reuse those gorgeous stones but it does sort of make me sad to rip the ring apart. But whatever way it's going to bring you the most pleasure is what you should do. It's your ring now to do with as you please.

Not sure if I like it or not. But the moon bit looks like it may be a later addition anyway?

Redo.

Well made but bad design. It’s all wrong in so many ways. Take the great stones and use your obvious skills for a well - designed ring.

@Niel -

It's a slit-eyed alien who wears his brains on the outside of his cranium. Change immediately.

Lots of nice diamonds in it, tho, and the pieces in your inspiration photos are beautiful. I know your love of size, tho - so what size center are you after? Do you have a rough idea? Personally, I see you with something pink in the center - either way, this ring will be amazing and great fun to watch develop! :))

No, based on the design of the gallery I don’t believe it’s a late addition. I do believe it was manufactured in parts. But the actual ring was done all at once.
and yes. I can’t decide either

Yes my blue sapphire is perfect and so is my yellow. So if I change it I want pad or a ruby

I’m currently wearing it as is. It’s a beast. I can rock anything (haha) but which would I prefer long term

I would just never wear this as a pendant. (Besides a classic studs ) I only want rings idk why

A lot of people told me not to destroy my watch to get my movals out too - which was a difficult decision for me. It had similar if not a better craftsmanship than this. But in the end it was more than worth it.
plus I think the pears would benefit from not being in a bezel.

I had the exact same though as you and @yssie when I bought this (as I told you)
When it was coming I was telling everyone she was going to be the ugliest thing I ever bought - which might still be true - but still.

Your classic rings are very obvious choices over the pieces you are taking apart. This ring is hodge podge as it is...

I remain with an itch for a certain kind of ring with two pears (dis-)connected by something quite small; irrelevant.
