blushingbee2019 : Thanks so much! I love all the little details on the setting. It’s funny because when I first got engaged (which was a long time ago — ha,ha!) I wanted a plain band solitaire. And, if I had had any stone choice, I would have picked a heart shape. It seems like it’s not a super popular shape on the Bee, but I’ve always had a deep love for heart stones.
My hubby (then fiance-to-be) wanted a round stone. And he wanted a setting with side stones, because he said he didn’t think a solitaire was “me”. So that is what we got, although we picked out our stone and setting together. Fast forward many years, and it turns out that, for my own wearing preferences, I really am a person who loves a detailed setting with a lot of metal on it. So I guess my hubby was on to something, even way back then. Too funny!
Thank you, also, for the anniversary wishes. I can’t believe we hit our 20th. It doesn’t seem like that long at all, which I guess is a good sign that we are happy. ^.~

DrAtkins : aquamarine15 : lulubelle2017 : Thanks so much!! I am amazed at all the little details. Even parts of the ring that will never show when I wear it (because they are against my finger) are fully detailed. It feels like such a work of art. I never get tired of staring at it — LOL
mrssam : Thanks! I love the color combination, too. I was a little worried that I wouldn’t love it in rose gold. I have a couple of pieces in rose, but nothing this “heavy” or large. (hopefully that makes sense) So I was a little nervous about it. But I love it. I’m so glad I went with the rose gold for this stone. I thought about doing the enameling in a lighter purple to mimic the stone more, but I liked the contrast with the soft and dusty blue. Plus, I thought it would give me more options if I ever have to change the stone. Thanks for the anniversary wishes, too. =)
theambereyed1 : Thanks!! I am enjoying the heck out of these little dragon babies so far! I feel like DK went above and beyond on this piece. I am floored by how detailed and pretty it is. Many of the details are super delicate, too. I love the packaging. It made the whole thing feel even more special — ha, ha! Thanks for the anniversary wishes! =)
20sparklingyears : Thanks so much for the kind words and the anniversary wishes! Like my other dragon ring, this one definitely wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love it to bits. =)
Aaaand, I wanted to share an couple of pictures of the stone showing a bit more color. These are more recent shots. Sadly, we have had fairly cloudy weather ever since my ring arrived. Sunshine … where you at?? LOL I am pretty sure my “photo shoots” with this ring are not done! *cue evil laughter*
