received myCAD drawing today. its pretty good-- but something’s not quite right and I cant really put my finger on it. one thing i know is I am so terrible at describing what i like-- its not the CAD designer''s fault.
first thing I noticed is that from the top view at an angle—the shared prongs on the band appear too bulky. I usually haven’t even noticed the prongs an a shared prong band—I just see the diamonds.
in describing what i wanted- i did refer them to a prior pricescope post. I like the band a lot in this design. Maybe the person whose ring this is could contact me and tell me more about their design. here is what the pricescope member wrote (and the link):
Mine is a .82 G SI1 from in a custom setting, with 14 2-pointers in the melee. I absolutely LOVE this ring, it is literally my dream ring. I loved the shared-prong top view, but didn''t love the "scalloped" sides of the stock shared-prong settings, so I had this custom made to get what I really wanted! Mine is half-eternity and is so comfortable.
obviously she went with 14.02 pointers-- i am going with 12 .025 pointers. but I like her ring. everything except for the head...where i would just simply take out the horizontal piece of metal in the legato head.
from the top view- my band almost looks like channel set because its a little wide. the ring referenced above looks narrower from the top view, the shared prongs are harder to see. and from the side view- its not as scalopped looking. and maybe thats the wrong word—but look at her side view (pricescope link above) a lot less indents for the diamonds on the band. I think mine are a little too scalloped.
as far as the head- i think its perefct-- integrated into the shank- as opposed to sitting on top.
but as for the prongs---do they look a little bulky-- kinda like 4 straight rectangular pieces of metal sticking straight up. i think i might want thinner prongs.
