- Wedding: September 2021 - Australia
I am just too excited not to share. I mentioned in a previous thread we went back to the same jeweller who did my e-ring for my wedding band, but they were really unhelpful. We originally contacted them at the end of July, and they took weeks to respond to our emails, even after following up on the phone and (we later learned) they didn’t even contact any loose gem vendors to ask about what we were looking for – they just told us what we wanted wouldn’t be available due to covid, which several jewellers (including the one we have now) told us was straight-up nonsense.
Our new jeweller has been lovely so far – on Tuesday we had the experience I’d been so hoping to have. We went into their showroom, they showed us a bunch of different coloured gems, we talked through my design ideas (which is so hard to do via emails back and forth!) and she measured everything so she can produce a CAD. She even promised she would make a 3D print or a silver version so I can try it on, which I am really happy to hear.
Anyway, I just wanted to share with you all what we decided on! We plan to modify Provence’s Rose Gold Lacie design – like this one that WB’s very own @Pinky58 suggested to me a while back:
The original CAD has the design with diamonds on both sides of the ring, but we’ll redesign so that they are only on the side closest to me, so that they won’t rub against the engagement ring and the two can sit flat together. We also plan on doing a half-eternity, not full eternity to make it easier to resize, and the central stone in each group of 3 will be a peach sapphire which is slightly larger than the diamonds, to mimic my engagement ring on a smaller scale.
I plan to update this thread with the CAD when it’s done, but in the meantime, here is a picture of two of the shades of stones she currently had – she is going to get us some bigger ones, and I am hoping they will sit between the two we looked at in terms of colour – these were slightly more orange-pink and more blue-pink than I wanted, but I feel like we are so close to what I want!
