GL!!! YAY!!! It looks fabulous!! Oh yes, please remind us of the specs and story??? Especially for those who don't know it.

Get those props ready! I say since yours is a white diamond/halo, find an angle for a prop:)

I once had it appraised while it was in its old setting, and they said .80 cts G VS2.  Not sure if David concurs, but that is what I know of it.  

It was my MILs stone.  Actually, her original fell out at some point and this one replaced it.  I don't know what year that was, but probably in the 70s or 80s.  I had some bad karma issues with it, but EMJ helped me "resolve" them, and I am very excited to see it in its new "home"!!!  (lots of "quotations" for one post, I know. . .)

Ahhhhhh yes... Now I remember the karma attached to it.  This halo has the DBL karma attached to it now, so it's more than good!!!

It turned out beautifully and now that it is in a "HALO" setting...I am sure that the angels will be wiping the bad Karma away!    Just heavenly looking!  Congratulations!!...........................Yes...angel props...or maybe, (don't laugh).....COTTON BALLS.    ~Ronda

Thanks all!!  I am even more excited now because I spoke with David and they are going to add milgraining to the edges.  When I wear this one I am going to wear my wedding band on the other hand, so I want them to look kind of like they were meant to be together. . .

Ack!!!  Just looked at the pics and there is no milgrain on my Tiffany band!  Shows how long it has been since I've worn it.  Off to make David even more crazy and cancel the request!

So no milligrain now? I think CH's does... I love it.  I wasn't sure if one could add milligrain after the ring was done.. Shows how little I know about that stuff:)

Just gorgeous...I love it (of course, I am biased!).

Here is a picture of mine to see the different choices...mine is prong set. 

They are both fabbbbbulous!

Enjoy it!

Yours does make me love that milgrain, but I am going to keep it plain so it goes with my other band.  Now I don't have to be mad at myself for selling you my half-eternity band anymore!   :angry5:  :BangHead:   JK!!!!

It would be so fun to see ours next to each other, given that they are the exact same size and color!!!

GL and CH, those are beautiful rings and I love the subtle differences!  I'm curious - what does the gallery view look like?

They're beautiful GL & CH!!!!!! You can really be diamond sisters now!

GL, I love your wedding band too! Never seen anything like it!

Gosh, I'm a little jealous of you two! It's been such a sparkly month with all the new stuff you guys have going! Guess I'll just have to live vicariously thru you until my next purchase!

Here's a gallery view of mine...and a couple of before and after pictures...I think these are cool.  You can imagine that they are yours, GL!

Thanks CH!  It will have to keep me satisfied until I get my package full of sparklies sometime in the next week or two!!!! 

Working on something else that is keeping my busy in the meantime (watch for non-sparkly item thread in chit chat when ready!). . .
