@larousse:  I’m a little offbeat and my ring came from http://www.krikawa.com. If they are open in budget this place has a lot of really wonderful designs. She may like the alien elegance or galaxy queen ring for instance. She also might like their halo designs done with the amora in the center surrounded by black diamonds or red diamonds. They also do mokume which is folded metal and can iodize it so some of the layers are black. If they dont have it they can make it and their customer service is phenomenal :). I live in VA they are in AZ and we had no problems with them.

@larousse:  When I think gothic e-ring, I think black diamonds.  How does she feel about them?  From google images.

@larousse:  Huh, how gothic are we talking? Because there is black gold out there….

Or maybe something with some sort of pointed elements, like this?

Have you google image searched gothic rings? There are tons!

 

As for the Amora gem, do you think she’d be comfortable with an 8mm (2 ct) stone? That is the smallest they make right now, and it might be too flashy for her tastes.

@larousse:  Etsy might be the place to go, especially for something custom if he goes with the Amora. We got my ring from ObsessoriesStudios (http://obsessoriesstudios.com/) – my ring’s pretty unique, but some of her stuff definitely strikes me as vintage/gothic. Her craftsmanship is excellent, too 🙂

When i think of Gothic style anything, i think about the Victorian era or Edwardian era. They made beautiful rings at that time. A quick google image search and you would find hundreds of gorgeous rings. 

  This is an Edwardian style ring for example.

@arabbel:  This ring is dramatically gorgeous.  Wish I knew more about the vintage/gothic combo.  I love gothic architecture yet cannot transfer that asthetic towards a ring setting.  Not that creative and wish I had gothic vision b/c, even without the ‘vision’, there is something dark, mysterious and sexy about gothic, really.

 

@dewingedpixie, have seen your ring for months and damnit it is so unique and Merlin-mysterious-like.  Actually, Morgan of the Faeries-like, holding within hidden power!  Love your ring design.

The Amora gem is currently only available in giant sizes, and only in round brilliants. I don’t think they’ll make radiants any time soon. The next shapes they’re going to cut are the H&A cushion, the OEC, the princess, the emerald, and luckily for you, the asscher.

However, who knows how long it will take for them to grow an asscher.

For “gothic” feels, search Edwardian rings. The Edwardian era is very gothic-y.
