Big Grin  Meet Alex!
The first thing I MUST say about this ring is a huge thank you to @poppyseed & Alb Bighug for executing my vision so beautifully, and creating a gorgeous ring I will love & cherish for many years! The overall size & proportions are perfect for my finger & the stone. It is super comfortable, and really lets the alexandrite stand out beautifully! And the milgrain is so lovely & delicate, I could gobble it up! Drool This ring showcases the rich green color so beautifully, it kinda looks like a lusciously dark emerald. At some point I will do my best to capture the incandescent color change when I am in that lighting. For now, I have crap lighting in my office, and Alexandrites are a nightmare to photograph, but without further ado ...

Heeeeeeeere's Alex! Banana

Can you add a handshot with the point turning downwards? I just want to see which I like better for when I get a pear!

Thx much ladies! Grouphug

@EarthDiva the Alex is 2.02 cts (and actually looks bigger to me now than before it was set). The diamonds I believe are around .40tcw but I need to confirm with @poppyseed. I didn't specify a requirement for their size; rather, I just wanted it to be proportionate and let the Alex be the star with some added "sparkle assistance". Smile

Thank you. My man-princess bought it for me a little over a year ago after I pined over it for a few months ogling the pictures on the dealer's site. It's his birthstone, and it was supposed to be a surprise, but his grandma spilled the beans. LOL
