I had contemplated about not posting this because it’s so heavily inspired by a ring owned by @EC8. It seemed rude to post. Plus that CVB v DK thread left me with a new understanding of jewelry etiquette. Anyway, as promised,
I sent EC8 the photos via email a few days ago and mentioned I had no intention of posting them here. She told me not to worry about that so I decided to share. Mostly because I’m super jazzed about this ring but don’t have as many IRL jewelry loving friends. I never want to take any spotlight away from her ring. It’s fantastic, I love it, and I still pop into that thread to look at it from time to time.

But anyway when I saw EC8’s ring on DK’s IG, I fell in love. I reached out to her asking her to contact me and she did. I then asked her if it was ok to model my ring after hers. She very kindly agreed that was ok and I started hunting for diamonds.

Initially I wanted to find two individual diamonds in the wild and bring them together to make a toi et moi ring. That was difficult. So earlier this year I gave up on that idea and bought this super cool, ornate 3 stone ring with pretty OECs. I sent it to Sako to have it dismantled months ago and finally the finished product it back (my issues, not Sako’s).

Here she is:

I kind of wish I went with bigger diamonds but I have no desire to look for more pairs of diamonds. So it is what it is. Either way, I love it! I’m pumped about it. And I’m done doing jewelry things for the rest of the year.

I’ve recently fallen in love with toi et moi rings. And I came across a short thread a few years ago where you posted some beautiful toi et moi rings.
The one you created now is just as beautiful!

I love how oecs perform but I don’t love the round look on my finger. But a toi et moi ring solves this problem as it elongates the finger like any elongated fancy shape would.

Your ring looks perfect on you!

oh and do you know where I can find that David K. vs CVB thread? Or was it about cvb warning David K. not not be too inspired by her designs?

I’m so glad you got to share this ring! It’s true that we definitely don’t get the same ooh’s and ahh’s from our non jewelry friends so it’s always nice to come here and be able to show off our goods without judgment! Congrats on a beautiful ring and thank you to @EC8 for being the inspiration! It’s so beautiful and I’m hoping that once covid ends we can get together for a Seattle GTG and we can all ooh and ahh in person!

That is a gorgeous ring that looks great on you @winnietucker . Thanks for sharing. I totally understand the need to share. I don’t have any friends IRL who love gems and jewellery to the same degree that I do. May you get many years of enjoyment from her.

That’s the one! I didn’t realize how big of a no no it was until that thread.

Thank you! They’ve been an off and on obsession for me for a bit. I’m happy to finally have my own.

I only have one friend who is PS-levels of excited about jewelry and she loved it, called it perfect, and said she needs it when she gets engaged. My other friend who kind of likes jewelry was less enthused. None of my other friends care lol. I’d love to see everyone’s bling IRL.

@Polabowla @MissGotRocks @Daisys and Diamonds @Slick1 @stracci2000 @Luce @pearaffair Thank you all for the kind words!

@Begonia I fully support the PS version of rent the runway (if we could ever figure that out)!;)2

@Yelena Exactly. I’m sure some of my IRL friends think I’m wasting money lol. But it brings me lots of happiness and excitement so it’s worth it. Glad to have a supportive community to share my excitement with.

It looks amazing on you! I agree with @Lessics - it’s very flattering because of the way it draws the eyes along the length of your hand. I can see why you’re so enamoured!

This is eye-popping. I have some moi et toi rings on my eBay watch list, but they are so fuddy-duddy by comparison. Is part of the band in a brushed gold ? (I'm not aware of the inspiration ring but I'm sure it is just as beautiful.)
