  1. Heeeheeee, thinking I want something really simple, sleek, and no fuss. Plus it's a chance to design a new setting for the store (FYI, we stopped making settings for a few months while we reorganized, and will be re-opening our line in November!) since we always want to keep creating new pieces.

    I love the look of all of these different pieces - I'm feeling really inspired in this direction. I feel like the diamond needs something really organic and rustic. It's screaming for a bezel to enhance the beautiful shape, and the diamond is a real chunky ball of glitter and fire so I think satin/brushed finish metal would really emphasize and draw the eye to the cut of the stone.

  2. the first is my favorite!!

    the last link is my second favorite :smile: if you bezel it do the first! not too thick of a bezel to take away from the stone but just enough to enhance your chunky fireball!
     
  3. That's what I'm thinking too. Super delicate bezel, skinny shank, stacked with eternity bands in mixed metals :smile:

    Next question - platinum or rose gold? I LOVE rose gold, but not sure it will compliment the color of the diamond. I could do platinum and stack with rose and white gold bands...that gives me more flexibility to stack with gemstone bands, etc. But I LOVE rose gold!
     
  4. Love the basket on this ring:

  5. That diamond is gorgeous. I love it. Wear it in good health. I spent a good year looking for something like that and came up short so I ended up with a fancy yellow cushion cut instead for a RHR
     
  6. Gorgeous!!!! Love the cut!
     
  7. rose gold will look awesome next to this diamond! but I also love platinum and diamonds....decisions decisions :graucho:
     
  8. Omg that's gorgeous!!! I think a simple setting woken work best since it's already so beautiful.
     
  9. OMG!!! Seriously gorgeous!!! Congrats!
     
  10. These stones are far more stunning so called perfect colorless ones.

    I don't know a whole lot about diamonds -- I am the first to admit. Every now and then I'll see a ring in a store and it almost looks gray. I'm sure it's hard to say, but is this more likely a function of the lighting or the color of the stone? Just love them.
     
  11. For me, lower/warmer colored stones have an organic feeling to them. They're warm, cozy, earthy, glowing as if lit from within by candlelight. They suit my skin tone well and they please my eyes.

    Colorless diamonds are icy, steely, cool, and just evoke a different feeling that will appeal to others, but they're just not my cup of tea.

    And, where antique stones are concerned, the warmth adds that little extra something that suits the age and facet style of the diamonds. Like old parchment or lace, they just feel right with a little bit of color.

    I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with rose gold. SLURP!

  12. Eeek!!! Your new stone is amazing! But then ALL your stones are amazing!! I think it will look great in RG :smile:
     
  13. I love the first one, & think rose gold. Yum!
     
  14. I love this thread. All photos are simply breathtaking.
     
  15. I guess mine is a "higher low color" since it's a J, however it faces up very white in most lighting... :P

    I have developed a deeper appreciation for lower colors - I think it gives the diamond more depth and personality. :smile:

    You can see that it throws off really cool pastels in certain light (pics 1&2) and pic 3 is in the worst light ever a work (where it has a slight tint to it sometimes).
