The sapphire was a gift from some amazing friends well there more like family. Being a guy its not a typical to want a ring but it turned out perfect and is just stunning! What do you all think?

Written by Sfadman » October 11th, 2016, 2:28 pm:Thank you Westjenn! Very glad you like it gregchang35: hello there! After several months with it, it still is very enjoyable to look at and I really like the spread of the stone. I do think that it is a bit raised and am afraid of knocking it loose when I wear it. Originally I was thinking of a bezel setting, but the jeweler indicated that it would not let as much light pass through which makes sense. When I got this stone from Derco (worked with John) here in SF, I saw a 1.5ct G vs2 Asscher and preferred the spread of this EC more (1.4 H vs1). That said, all I can think about is that Asscher and I have been trying to sit on this one and enjoy it before running back to upgrade. I have also been toying with a cushion cut just for the fun of it but in the end I jut might move to an Asscher cut with the next upgrade and just deal with the spread adjustment. I have indeed been obsessed with Kenny's Asscher(s) setting and of course his FCD collection, but I am afraid of knocking the stone loose with my clumsyness. I also am aware that with a larger stone there will have to be elliptical, so I likely will get a bezel (signet style?) next. Knowing I'll have a stepcut with the reduced light performance of a bezel makes me consider other cuts like cushion or something, totally open to setting suggestions if you have anything in mind. Oh and here are some other pics I took on a red notebook as well for you to check out. Thanks for letting me ramble!

Its 10 1/2 i don't know please help me decide lol! I personally have the vote to a woman ring but a lot of people have said mens idk why, but let me know what you guys think:, Center stone vs1, g color, .25 and a round brilliant. Its all art deco and set with smaller singe cut diamonds.
