My new three stone
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 10-14-05 , 09:52 PM


After almost eight years of marriage, a tour to Korea, and a 15 month tour to Iraq, my husband upgraded my ring. I am simply thrilled beyond belief.

Specs:

1.01 ct, H, SI1 with emerald side-stones. Jan and Brad at DBOF put it together for me.

These pictures are there's. Much better than mine.

What kind of wedding band do y'all suggest I put with it? A simple gold band, or diamonds? Decisions, decisions..

OMG, RR...as I mentioned before...it's just lovely! and it does indeed sound like you've earned that beautiful bauble!

I just can't get over how wonderful the emeralds look with the YG!!!!

Wedding band?? Heavens...the possibilities are endless! Plain gold, eternity with dias, or with dias and ems, or with just ems, two skinny "guard" bands....I could go on and on! Do Jan and Brad have any ideas??

Congratulations....it's gorgeous!

RR,

WOW! That's georgous!! Were you expecting this upgrade or was it a surprise after your LONG tour?? Glad you're safe and doing well. Tell your husband he did an AMAZING job at picking out this ring!

For a band? If I had this ring I'd pair it with a plain thin yellow band...

But the possibilities are endless! Wear it proud

A 18kt channel set eternity band on each side with diamonds would really set it off. About 3 mm in width with ideal cut diamonds would be amazing with that ring.

Gorgeous! Congrats, and wear it in the best of health. With white gold and platinum being ever more popular it's very nice to see a ring in yellow gold that still has a fresh look to it. Very nice...enjoy!

I'm bumping this post for those who were interested from the other thread.

I've also upgraded the center stone since we took these pictures. I now have a 1.16ct H/SI1 RB with flor. The first stone was technically "ideal" cut, but it just didn't have the sparkle I was looking for. My new stone isn't technically an ideal cut stone, but it's got more fire and brillance (and it faces up whiter, too) than my previous stone did.

I don't have any new pictures on hand. I will try to take some when the sun comes out.

Again, not a week goes by that someone doesn't grab my hand and ohhh and ahhh over my ring. I think they like the color/uniqueness of it more than anything.

Snooper~

I've just been wearing a simple, 2mm 18kt gold band with it. It doesn't match, but it says, "I'm married." I think it compliments the ring, and it doesn't take away from the stones.

I have tried on thin, channel set diamond bands (in gold) with it, and they look lovely, too. I'm happy with it as it is.

I wish the pictures looked better. It is beautiful in person; the emeralds sparkle like mad in the right lighting conditions (i.e. Wal-Mart and Lowes). hee. hee.

What a striking ring. I'm partial to emeralds. How about an eternity band of just emeralds or alternating diamond/emerald combo?

I decided to take updated photos of my ring. Sorry that I'm so late getting back to this thread. School's out, and I finally had time off work.

Now, this is not the original center stone. It was technically cut to "ideal" proportions; however, it never did sparkle like I wanted it to. So, I traded it in on this "traditional" cut stone, which sparkles like mad.

The new stone is 1.15ct, H/SI1 with faint flor.

These are not the best pictures, but as y'all know, taking pictures of diamonds is hard!

Also, that is my wedding band that I wear with it. It's just a simple 2 mm 18kt band.

It's funny. I'm always wanting an even bigger diamond -- diamond shrinkage sets in too soon!. However, when I see these pictures, I realize that my stone isn't that small afterall...
