Thanks Brit...yeah, I love him to death.

Well, after much thought, I think I'm going to shoot for the shared prong look like what Kleinkath has (I'm ripping right off of her beautiful green diamond ring basically) I may ask to add a small pink sapphire on each shoulder to spruce things up, but not sure. I think that design is so classic and yet interesting since it isn't the standard halo that I see a lot of.

I'm so dorky I did the calculations to estimate the needed diamond mm for a 16 stone surround and a 12 stone surround:





I even used highschool geometry to bisect my diagram with a compass. I'm so happy I rememberd all that:


I decided on a 12 stone surround. Hopefully with a shared prong...now off the the jeweler!

Awesome! SO you're little Baby Brownie will have a home soon!! When do you think you'll get this project in motion? I do like Kleinkath's ring, so now your ring will have a distant relative And you're not dorky for doing that!

First your pendant for your mom, now this design? Perhaps you could design things on the side!

wow..Briolette... I am impressed....I don't think I remember anything since high school. (I won't say how long ago that was). Although my kids are at an age where I am teaching them and they are teaching me. I do love that design. It will be neat to see how it turns out!~Ronda

I'd love to design jewelry as a job--that would be a dream come true, but my current job (I'm a programmer for the university=state job=stable but very little pay) feels more safe to me. I dunno, maybe after my husband's humongous school loans and car are paid off, it would be safe for a career change. I do make a lot of wire/bead jewelry that I sell at a store in Austin and I also cut gemstones, but nothing serious at all. It would would be a dream job for me to work in the jewelry industry.

I'm thinking this'll be a Christmas project, but I sure am itching to get this done! I have nice idea how expensive getting something made like this would be. I'm guess the ring will have to be cast since I don't see any ready made mountings floating around the web that look like this. Here's my final sketch with the side stones:



Distant cousin to kleinkath's ring...that's so cute, SNooper! I love it!

Ronda, I think it's fantastic that you and your kids are doing mutual learning. I remember that with my own mom when I'd help her with English (She's from Taiwan) and she'd help me with my math. It's a sweet thing.

Hopefully sooner than Christmas if it turns out to be relatively affordable! Okay, combined with the sketches & measurements, pictures that Kleinkath has been kind enough to provide and the image below, I think I've got enough for the jeweler to work off of:



so, just imagine the ring above with a brown center stone and tiny pink sides....hopefully with more of a shared prong look than a halo. I'm getting excited!

Briolette,

Your drawing is great! I am sure that it will turn out awesome. I especially like the idea of using the pink sapphires. I also love brown diamonds set in rose gold. The combination of the pink and brown really gets your attention. You really do have a great eye for designing jewelry!

And, thanks for the compliments on my ring. (blushing) I get many compliments on it, so I am sure that you will get even more since yours is will be so unique.

WOW! I'm so impressed with your drawing skills!

I think the finished ring will be awesome! I happen to love, love, love, pink and brown with white together!! I can't wait to see it finished!
