I absolutely love the way these stones look- and there's so many....but there's so many!!
We need to find a way to use them all....hate to have them go stale if we put them up int eh secret vault....

hmmm...maybe cluster rings?
Or bezel set stackers.....maybe combine bezel set stones, in different shapes and colors.
Kind of like R7745- excpet less symetrical

I like that idea! Three to 5 stones, depending on size and shape, put together in bezel settings.

3-3.5mm rounds for mismatched earrings. We were talking about that the other day, David. This must be the parcel that you mentioned.

Hi OMC! What I was trying to describe to David was not anything I've ever seen before so I could not show him a picture. My vision is 2 diamonds, matching in shape and size but mismatched in color. The earring would be about the same size and silhouette as a Cheerio, about 9-10mm in diameter, and the stone would be set in the "hole". Simple shepherd's hook drop, but instead of no closure, I was seeing (in my head) an omega closure running east/west. I could live with a leverback style if that wasn't possible. Everything in white gold to make the color of the stones really pop.

I know that David likes quirky, he embraces the quirk, but I'm not sure that this is an idea that would easily translate to a finished product.

I like the idea! I may be completely wrong, but I don't see any problems whatsoever in making them. The only thing that would concern me a little is the potential weight of a cheerio-sized piece of gold...

This reminds me, I have to get a few pictures of something that never made it on the DBL site, and that curiously enough shares a concept with your idea... and has had probably the longest gestation of any DBL piece (well over 3 years)

I was wondering about the weight as well. Probably the piece would be hollow to keep the weight and cost down.

I would love to see the project that was 3 years in the making! So much fun and you always have the greatest ideas.
