My friends got married last fall, and said their budget got to where the didn’t have enough for the rings they wanted. So, they decided to get some inexpensive rings to be able to get married, and then get the “dream ring” when they could better afford it. The bride-now-wife recently asked the jewelry is they still had it for sale but most of their work is custom, and they did not, and said they didn’t plan on making it again. So I figured I’d take her pic and come on here and ask knowledgeable Bees if they’ve seen anything like this, and/or know of a jeweler who can take custom orders with a payment plan, possibly remotely via email and FedEx (we are all in Texas). I found a couple for her, but they were just different enough to not be “right”.
Any help finding this for her is appreciated. I didn’t get to make the wedding, and even though we sent a gift, would like to be able to help with this for her. 🙂

Joseph Schubach Jewelers does great work, and they do custom designs as well, if you send them a picture!

Isilme: David klass is awesome and has the best prices I’ve ever seen. You pay him nothing until the ring is finished, so im sure he wouldn’t mind her making payments.

I would do a search on Etsy for art deco sapphire ring. You’d be surprised how many rings look similar to this style. Other than that, I second the David Klass route. I’ve heard great things about him from multiple people here on the Bee. Goodluck!

Isilme: It’s a pretty ring. I think you may be able to find something like it on a site like Etsy. But if you want it specifically like this I would recommend getting it custom done. Definitely have a look into David Klass because he does a lot of work on gemstones and high detail like that. Might need to buy a loose sapphire and get him to do the setting.

My $0.02? If this is the exact ring that she’s been dreaming of all these years, I’d go the custom route.
Both mentioned here have great reputations.

gijanedoe: I looked on Etsy for her, but did not see anyhting quite right – I sent her pics but she said they weren’t close enough.
JessChern: I will forard her their name, Joseph Schubach Jewelers – thanks 🙂

Thanks! My e-ring, and the wedding band I want are easy to find – they are on Gemvara. And I figure we’ll just get FI’s wedding band from them too, next time they offer a 20% off sale and I can get him to give me input as to what he wants. But she seemed sad last night that they couldn’t get it from the people who first made it, and I figured Bees like ring shopping and would know more than either of us.

EDIT: Removing this since it lost everything after the first sentence. Thanks, weddingbee.

FWIW, that is called an illusion head [the basket]. I’ve just spent 45 minutes looking through thousands of “antique” vintage and art deco options to no avail.
Have it made 😉

Isilme: It’s a beautiful ring!
I second (or third?) David Klass. Like several other Bees, I worked with him to design and make a custom ring. I will say that I found his communication a bit “laggy” in the very beginning. But, once we started emailing back and forth, he always answered me right away. And my ring was ready exactly within the time frame he specified. And I love it. He did a fantastic job with it — plus, he had by far the best price.

I had mine done at Green Lake Jewelry Works in Seattle. They did awesome! You can make make a design page on their website and talk to the designers on there.
My ring, vintage style also though very different from hers!

Isilme: I agree with PPs that say if she wants that ting exactly her best bet is to go custom.
If she’s open to finding something similar, rubylane.com has some stunning options.
