Zachscnider! your ring is beautiful! I love it.

Written by Zachschnider » March 8th, 2016, 1:57 pm:Im new to posting but wanted to try,

This is my ring- 2.02ct-Australian sapphire-14k Yellow gold-Half Bezel- No known treatments.
This ring I had custom made for me because its a memory of great things, times, and to keep going as nothing is impossible. 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?

Now that you have had the reset for a while, how did you find it? Still thinking of a reset?
Do you have any profile shots/ side shots so we can see it how high it is from teh finger/ band?


I am not sure that any stone will be able to sit flush with the band without the band being thick or elliptical shape.
I have always loved the tension setting that Kenny mentions. have you seen the settings on those?
Be bold and tell the truth.

Thank you Westjenn! Very glad you like it :wavey:

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!

@Sfadman

I know your feeling. I once had one very similar with the setting except no side kind of tension like yours has. When I wore it it was a treasure but as you mentioned that god awful day came when I knocked it clean out of its setting. This however is not the same way mine was set so you have almost a frame or wall protecting it. I think you should be good but maybe talk with the jeweler and ask him his opinion :)
Sincerely,

Zachariah Schneider

@Sfadman,

Nice geometry of the ring.
The setting seems secure.

with respect to tension settings, there are only a few ppl that do them well. I think kenny has mentioned it in another post...

off the top of my head:
boone rings does chrome cobalt (far cheaper than precious metals like gold and it keeps the white colour really well)
Gelin Abaci (sp???)
S Kretchmer ?????

there is possibly another vendor, but i forget.

however, if you do not like the tension setting per se, there are other options. My asscher is in a semi-tension and, it is elliptical in shape that you are most probably aware of. there is a bar that connects the 2 sides of the ring which eliminates the concern that you have with stone falling out in a true tension setting. there are vendors taht can help you with this kind of setting, as you probably already know.
Note, the thinnest of the bar is not to be trusted. see the second link with new pics.

hope that make sense.

In the mean time, enjoy your current ring.
Be bold and tell the truth.

Absolutely STUNNING ring. I love the East-West setting. I had this done with an emerald cut as well, looks a lot more masculine this way I think.

My sapphire before was stunning but I sadly broke it. To any bad situation is a positive that is so alluring and majestic. In my case this all to stunning color change Blue sapphire to Purple. This stone is so stunning and clean! It is 2.62 carats. So I pared it with my dads gift to me, A beautiful 950 platinum band with 7 diamonds. There is Vs2-Si1 Quality stones. They are very white not sure color. Around 1.70 carats total weight in it. I love these and they mean so much to me. Let me know your opinions on the new sapphire! :angel: :twirl: :)

While I think the ring is very pretty, I would say that for me personally, it might be more of a ladies style. But that shouldn't matter in the least if it makes you happy when you wear it.

I'm not sure a lady needs to have larger fingers to wear this. She could easily wear it on her middle or index finger. But it definitely would look better on a ladies hand.
