Yellow gold raw ruby right hand ring. It’s my birthstone and got it for my birthday last year, I still adore it
hypersaurusrex : Beutiful set!! And wow you did a lot of research and ‘work’ to get the perfect ring you had in mind. 🙂 Glad you’ve found the one. ❤️
I did quite a bit of research too, but at the end, I’ve found my perfect ring (diamond and setting) at my favorite place, Vrai & Oro. It did make the process simpler, especially since they offer sample rings, but still took some time to get the right stone and setting. Lol. Never easy. Too many beautiful rings (and diamonds) to choose from. 🙂
ivvy : hey! Did I read that you ended up picking an already created setting for your diamond or are you still waiting for a custom setting? I just got to see my wax model today and approved it, it looked beautiful and while I didn’t think I’d like the cathedral style, I loved it! Just another 2 weeks… ☺️
newbeegirl : Hey good to hear from you! So exciting!! It looks perfect. ❤️ 2 more weeks…
I’m still waiting too. Mine is made-to-order, and I did ask them to make it with 14k yg instead of 18k but it’s not a custom setting like yours, I don’t have to approve a wax model (I tried on a sample ring). It does take 2-3 weeks to make it though.
1 week down, 2 more to go! 😉
1 ct, k color, vvs1 size 5.25 finger.
newbeegirl : thank you! I’m “older” (mid thirties) on my second marriage with 5 kids…so I wanted something clean, simple and timeless.
I had a 2 ct round brilliant in a cathedral setting for my first marriage and quite honestly I hardly ever wore it. I kept scratching my kids with it and it would get caught on things, snag, etc. I wanted something I could wear every day this time around!
I love yellow gold. Rose is far to pink on me and I like the classic look of yellow. I might get a white gold mixed wedding band because i do love the look of white and yellow together. But who knows. There are so many wedding band options with a solitaire!
