So, SO mentioned that he would like specific details on what I want my ring to be, because he struggles picking out my birthday card, let alone my engagement ring. He matter if factly told me it would be this year (no surprise, but nice to hear officially anyway!), I figured I would give him some lead time.
I’ve wanted a Lucida ring since they were first introduced–before i’d ever had a boyfriend :). However, my FMIL has offered her mother’s ring, and was kind enough to give him her blessing to get it re-set any way we want . Since tiffany doesn’t sell settings for non- tiffany diamonds, we’ll have to design it ourselves.
there are two problems–
1. it’s a round diamond, and lucida is a special, square-ish cut. the shape complicates things a bit.
2. the lucida inspired custom rings I have seen from google are less than impressive–not great craftsmanship, or too much metal, or something. I reslly want a simple, elegant, well crafted setting, and am worried that I will struggle to find it.
Do any bees have pictures of their own Lucida style rings, and if so would you be willing to tell me how or where you got the setting and what you specified?
thanks! Looking forward to your lovelies!
