    It is a nice ring and neat that it is hand made.

    It looks more like a topaz than aquamarine, most aquamarines I have seend are a lighter blue.

    I don’t wear yellow gold–only white gold so that would be the deal breaker for me.

    Maybe use the yellow gold for something else and get the stone reset in a white gold setting.

    Or if she got a card or something from the person at the craft fair see if you can make contact and ask them to do a similar ring in white gold as an exchange or something?

    FutureDrAtkins:  I like yellow gold and I think it is pretty.  I would wear it occasionally, as I do like to change things up.  I think it looks like a blue topaz.

    I like it personally, but it’s not something I would wear all the time, I think it’s thoughtful that she had it made for you, and I would feel bad resetting it just because of that, but like PP suggested if it is something you’d want to wear, I’d get it reset.

    FutureDrAtkins:  Looks like a London Blue Topaz. I like the stone and would have it reset into a more elegant setting, because the setting is too clunky and rustic for me. My mother tends to not be offended by my honesty, so I would have personally been honest with my mom. She would probably know immediately based on my behavior anyway. I might suggest waiting a while if it would offend your mother to tell her the ring isn’t your style and you would like to have it reset.

    FutureDrAtkins:  I only like yellow gold, so I think it is pretty. For you, you should get it reset in white gold. I like PPs suggestion of contacting the crafter and seeing if he can do some kind of metal exchange.

    FutureDrAtkins:  I think aquamarine is a lot lighter. Personally I’m the same, I don’t wear yellow gold and the prongs are kinda big. BUT I think it’s a cool ring if you like yellow gold. I’d feel bad, though, if my mom gave it to me and I changed it up. I’d also feel badly if I never wore it though. Gah!

    I’m not a fan of that setting at all, so I would either not wear it, or reset it. Do you think your mom would be offended if you reset? It definitely looks like a London Blue Topaz by the way.

    I have a couple pieces of jewelry that I wear when I’m around the gift-giver, to show my appreciation that they thought of me. If you have even the slightest inkling that your mom would be hurt you changed her gift to you, just wear it when you see her. Who knows, maybe you’ll grow to like it for its uniqueness!

    Great stone, I don’t like the setting at all and would reset it.

    You could get  it rhodium dipped?  And maybe have the prongs shaved down. It looks like London blue topaz to me. I don’t think I would have it reset because it now holds sentimental value being a gift from your mother. I would just do minor changes.

    I say reset! My london blue looks 100X better in a white gold setting than it did in the yellow gold ring it came set in.

    Yeah…this is why I buy most of my jewellery myself, hehe 😉 I know exactly what I like and I get it. Otherwise it’s difficult to get me something I love. 

    I would reset that ring in a white metal. Olgarie: ‘s ring is stunning in a white setting!

    Sweet of your mom though 🙂

    I’d wear it. But I’m also building a hoard of right hand rings in a variety of styles and colors, so there’s not much I’d actually turn down.
