This is such a fun thread! I love seeing the different styles, both in terms of stone type and setting. So much pretty, pretty bling! *.*
I have a few rings, as I’ve been married for a while. Rings are the main type of jewelry I wear. I like to switch things up now and again, and my husband is okay with it.
16th (15th? I don’t remember, but I think it was 16) anniversary ring:
Center stone is .90 ct, SI1 (eye clean), and E color (I think?). Setting is platinum, and has around 1.5cts on it. Size 7. It’s funny how I thought I would never forget all the specs on it, but I have over the years.
We paid around 5-6K for the stone and setting (purchased separately from the same jeweler). It was through a jeweler that was local to us at the time, in the DC Metro area.
20th Anniversary ring:
It is definitely not a setting that is for everyone, but I remain obsessed with it. If I had ever thought something like this could exist back when I got engaged, I would have had it for my engagement ring, from the beginning.
Stone: Purple-pink Spinel, about 2.31ct equivalent, eye clean. I purchased it on sale for $118
Setting: 14K rose gold. It has about 13 grams of gold in the setting (I think it’s 12.6 or something like that). It’s a custom design by David Klass, $1400.
Sunburst Ring, which was a birthday present from my husband.
Stone: Yellow sapphire, around 1.24ct equivalent. I purchased it on sale for $117.
Setting: 14K antique yellow gold, $800. It is by David Klass.
I have a couple of others I could share, mostly just to give an idea of what custom work might cost. If I’m able, I will come back and post them.
