I like the whit gold, but I am a white gold kinda person. I think your sapphires will look awesome in that setting. I can''t wait to see pictures of the finished product.

That is going to be a really lovely ring! I really like the white gold, seems to make the sapphires ''pop''!

Despite the overwhelming vote for white gold, I ended up going with yellow gold. I really liked the look of yellow gold, plus if I decided I didn''t like it after seeing it in person it would be easier to rhodium plate it than change white gold to yellow gold.

WOW lovely CADs. I prefer the white gold BUT I already have a bezel set ring in yellow so that probably swayed me some.

Brandy: heh, I already picked yellow gold as shown in the pictures. :)

icekid: Doesn''t it just though? It looks more like 24k than 18k gold.

Yay! The ring is done. I think it came out really well. What do you think?

Wow and it''s already at the fedex station. I wasn''t expecting it to arrive there until later for some reason.

Awesome ring! So neat to know that you have Yugos. Looking forward to pictures/comments about how the different gradations in color were handled.

Well I zipped over to FedEx at lunch to get my ring. It's absolutely gorgeous! I'm so glad I went with the yellow gold; it brings out a bit of violet in the sapphires.

Under fluorescent lights I can find the stone that shifted to violet but other that than I can't really see a huge variance in color. Under sunlight I couldn't really see a difference between them at all. I'm afraid you're going to have to wait for pictures because, though my cell phone has a camera, I have no clue how to get pictures off the phone and onto the computer.

ETA: They certainly packed the ring well too. It was in a ring box, in a cardboard box wrapped in tissue paper, in a padded envelope, in a small fedex box, in a medium fedex box.

OMG It''s just stunning! Are you going to post pics in SMRT??? With handshots as well? The bezel work is impeccible!

I wanted those sapphires Kismet, and was going to do the exact same thing with them!

I''m now pondering something similar with some Spessarites. I LOVE your band. Hope you don''t mind if I copy it!

I will definitely take pics once I get home! And of course I don''t mind if you do a similar (or the same) ring, Gypsy.
