I just wrote this whole post, but WB somehow logged me out as I was trying to post it. Hopefully this doesn’t end up being a duplicate.
Bees!! My ring from David Klass arrived today! I was so silly and sat around waiting for the UPS man ALL DAY today, even though I knew he wasn’t going to come until the late afternoon or evening. He never comes earlier than that. But I kept thinking, “He might come early today. I can’t miss it!” So silly of me. LOL
Final details: 14K rose gold (12.7grams) … 2.31ct oval spinel … blue enameling.
I was chasing the light, since the ring arrived close to sunset. But I grabbed my camera and ran out of the house to try and get a few pictures.
One lone “glamor shot” — ha, ha! The spinel sparkles like crazy, but I couldn’t capture it in any of my photos tonight. Hopefully I can get it when I have better light in the coming days.
I also thought the packaging was so sweet and romantic. It has changed since the last time I did a project with DK.

missdior021 : Thanks so much! =) It has so many little details. I’m looking forward to getting to know every inch of the setting over the next several days. It’ll also be a good test to make sure the ring is comfortable. So far, so good! Hopefully no issues will emerge over time.
citizenerased14 : Thank you! I am so, so thrilled!! And even more excited that it arrived before the holiday. Even though it would only have been a 1 day delay, I think I would have made myself crazy waiting for it — ha, ha! I can’t believe that it is here!
Spiritway11 : Thanks so much! *cyberhugs* You were right that Wednesday was the day. Yay!! I’ve been wearing it ever since the UPS driver delivered it. (Well, mostly. I had to take it off to do dishes and wash some spinach for a salad tomorrow. LOL) Also, you were so right about the spinel! It sparkles like crazy. I was worried it would end up being too dark in the setting, but I feel like it is just right.

Spiritway11 : I do love it!! DK said to wear it for a little while and then let him know if any part of the setting sticks out too much or is too sharp. There are some sharp angles and pokey bits on here. So far, all is good! This is my first experience with spinel. I am loving this stone so far! I think it looks even more beautiful in the setting than it did when it was loose. I am interested to see how often I have to clean it. That might end up being the only drawback.
I definitely have to think of something for that orange tourmaline. It’s too pretty not to wear! Ha, ha!
mariastarlove : Teekay6718 : ppresto : Thanks so much, you guys! =)
KKJohnson : Thanks! I am completely smitten with these little dragons. I love the way they curve up the band.
MsBeer : Thanks so much! I can’t get over how much detail David and his team put into this setting. It is amazing, and almost too much to take in at one or two (or a hundred — ha, ha!) glances. I don’t think I will get tired of staring at it, that’s for sure. My dragon and phoenix ring also has a lot of detail on it, although I think this setting is even more. I still love staring at my dragon/phoenix ring.
TrueLove407 : Thank you, thank you!! I would not have stayed sane without your help through this whole process. Thank you so much for keeping me company and giving me advice while this process was happening. *cyberhugs*
