Thanks so much! I love how it turned out. As soon as I saw the little model, I knew I was going to love the design. But I still wasn’t prepared for how much I would love it when I saw it actually finished. Which sounds cuckoo, I know. Ha, ha!
Thank you! I’m so excited about it. It took a little longer to complete than I expected. So I was getting antsy at the end because I was beyond ready to see it in real life. The setting is 14k rose gold. The ravens are black gold. I believe it is a black plating over the rose gold, although I might be wrong about this. The raven eyes are black diamond.
Thank you! I’m excited about how it turned out. And, now, I’m even more excited about finally getting to see it in person. The waiting nearly killed me on this project. LOL
Thanks so much! I can’t wait to see it in person. He told me it was ready to ship out, so I am hoping it will ship on Monday. If so, it might reach me by Wednesday or Thursday of the coming week. I’m so excited about it, I want to run around my house squealing — ha, ha!
Thanks!! It looks so much prettier in reality than I had imagined it. Even from looking at the model, it’s amazing to see it in real life, with the different colors and everything.

Thank you! I am super happy with how it turned out. I felt really emotional when I got the finished pictures. Something about seeing this one come to life grabbed me in a big way. Maybe it was because I had been plotting and planning this setting for a long time, even before I contacted him with the idea. As much as I had imagined it, the reality blows that away for me.
Thanks! I’m so, so happy with how it turned out. I’ve mentioned a few times already, but I wasn’t prepared for all the feels seeing this one completed would cause. I cried when I saw the finished pictures. I know it sounds so silly, but it felt so amazing to me that this crazy idea actually worked. (hopefully that makes sense. LOL)
Thank you! I originally wanted to do a halo that was a mix of the metal roses and black spinel or black diamond. But I didn’t like how it looked in the first CAD. I felt like the halo stones took away from the garnet. It makes me really happy for you to say the garnet is taking center stage, as that’s what I had hoped for. It is such a beautiful stone, and I loved it for a long time on the dealer’s site before I finally bought it.
Thanks so much! I can’t believe how well the design turned out. I am super happy over it, and excited to see it in person.

Yep! I will definitely be camped out on the tracking information — ha, ha!
I will probably spam so many pictures you guys will be sick of them. =P I can’t wait to do a fun macro photo shoot with it. Hopefully we will have sunny weather over the coming week.

Just saw a video of your beauty pop up on DK’s IG page. How lovely.

Um…this is the coolest!! Heading over to his IG page to see if there is a video right now! I bet you will be watching that tracking info!
ETA: Yep! Saw the video as I knew he would make one. So perfect!

Thanks for your kind words. =) I was excited to see the video on his IG. My rings don’t always make the Instagram cut, so I was surprised to see this one posted. I really like how they used the rock and mossy background for it.
Thanks! I was excited and happy that he posted the video. It’s a silly thing, but I always get a kick out of that. My rings don’t always make the Instagram cut, so maybe that’s why I feel like a little kid in a toy store when he posts them. I’m still a little sad he didn’t post the video of my dragon anniversary ring, although I get it. It’s definitely not a design that most people would like. But it was a good video. LOL
I am now anxiously checking my emails for tracking information and hoping it will ship out today sometime. And then I will be sitting on that tracking info for sure! Every gal needs a hobby, right? ^.~

The garnet goth ring turned out awesome! 😍 That rich red colour of the garnet is gorgeous!

Thanks so much! I love the tone of red in the garnet so much. I have a “history” with this stone, as I stalked it on the cutter’s site for quite a while before realizing it was perfect for this project.
Aaaaand … My ring arrived this afternoon. I am in love with it! I am getting ready to head out and grab some pictures of it with my camera. I hope I manage to catch a little sunlight, but here’s a quick phone pic I snapped out in the yard right after it arrived.
