Why I've been MIA...
Hi All,
I've been lurking here, but posting much less than before. Mostly because I've been on the "other" forum trying to get help planning a big sapphire ring project :Smile Now that it's all set, I wanted to share the results (and process) with all of you! 

I was inspired by these styles, but none of them were "perfect" to me. So I emailed a vendor with these totally unclear notes to explain what I wanted to change

Luckily for me the vendor understood my rambling and came back with this suggestion:

However, after some help from others who are more experienced "reading" CADS, he was able to make the wires into more of a "U" shape, and this was the final CAD:

After weeks of waiting, I finally got my ring! Here are tons of pics--I dont have a real camera, so my phone camera is the best I can do.

Anyway, sorry for the long post and thanks everyone for looking! Even though the pics are bad the ring is beautiful in real life, and the center stone is a deep blue but not black, and I like how it has flashes of blue/green depending on how I look at it. Overall I'm thrilled Smile

There is something special about seeing a vision come to life-well done!

I get distracted by shiny things

RE: Why I've been MIA...
How cool that you were able to custom make it!  Did the jeweler source the sapphires, or did you collect them yourself?

I really like the color of the sapphires! Glad to see you are back!

One day, I'll be a crazy old lady weighed down by all my baubles and it will be glorious.

RE: Why I've been MIA...
Thanks, everyone! @stardust the jeweler also sourced the sapphires--they are Aussie sapphires, as those are more price friendly than the lighter ones. He re-cut the center stone from a larger one which brought some light into it so it doesn't look "black" which I appreciate. I do sometimes wish it were a bit lighter (like the side stones), but that wasn't going to fit with my price range. But I do love how it's 'inky' in some lights, but then there are these fun flashes of blue/green.

Quite lovely, Yssie's 5 stone has always been a favorite of mine, love how it inspired your design, the sapphires are awesome!

Love it! It is a gorgeous ring. I'll have to keep Aussie sapphires in mind...
