Thank you, jcent and spaz for the assistance. Thank you, so much. I am sorry I went awol over the weekend. Time flew, and it's harder for me to get time on the computer with the kids having access all day. Even when I get the time, something else always gets in the way.
Looking as those big pics, I can see that a) my pictures are blurry! and b) my k colored ering really does look off-white next to that white cz. That doesn't bother me in person.
So, what do you think about the stones as I propped them up for viewing? In the pics, I think I like the white pear in my yellow solitaire. I wish it was a smidge bigger, but do think the pear appears bigger than the same weight round, do you?
I love the color of the blue, which matches perfectly with my sapphire band, too. I'm not sure about the shape/size/position of the stone, though.
Love the tanzi colored pear, but not with the sapphire band. Maybe that could one day be a pendant.
I'm loving the cushion in my mom's wg solitaire setting. Not sure about the position, though. I like the idea of setting it with the corners NSEW, but would it be safer the usual way? It is a cz, not a diamond, so it's not going to be costly to replace, if needed some day.
I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on these possibilities. I'm getting excited with the idea that these two settings may eventually be used again. Why have them sitting in the dark of my jewelry box, when they can be filled with a pretty stone and see the light of day?
