Hi everyone! (POLL IS FOUR POSTS DOWN!!)
If any of you have been following my random posts, then youīll be happy for me when I tell you that I found a designer for my ring! Iīm so excited I couldnīt sleep last night!
Iīm buying a 6.5mm OEC Moissanite. I havenīt decided unenhanced or Amora. I kept going back and forth between bezel setting, antique replicas, simple solitaires, halos... I was going crazy. The only thing I knew was that it had to be yellow gold.
Rewind to about 4 or 5 years ago, I found some pictures online of some gorgeous granulation rings that were made in the style of the Byzantine era. I fell head over heel in love with the designs and spent the better part of the year trying to find someone that did that kind of work in 22k gold. alas back then I didnīt know about this forum so I gave up when I didnīt find anything.
(these are the old pics that I STILL have on my computer)
Fastforward to yesterday when I was looking for someone to reproduce a Victorian mount for me, and I almost fell out of my chair when I found a designer on Etsy that makes granulation rings!!
Iīm style a little on the fence about the exact design I want, but THIS IS MY DESIGNER!!
Janish Jewelry from Etsyhttp://www.etsy.com/shop/JanishJewels
Iīm looking at three differnt custom designs...
22k bezel with 3 little granules on each side, accent diamonds on the granules, 18k shank (kind of like the citrine ring in the second picture)
18k high polish bezel with 3 little granules on each side, 14k shank (kind of like the last picture of the green stone ring, but with no silver)
22k bezel, mini granulated "halo" and one granule on each side with accent diamonds, 18k shank (sort of like the one on the top right hand corner)
Ultimately, when I save up again, Í want to pair this ring with a beaded band like the ones in the original pictures. I would wear it as a wedding set. when i got married almost 8 years ago, I opted for my Cartier love ring so I donīt really have an Engagment ring with band set. This would be IT!
If any of you have worked with Jill or have any comments on any of the designs, Iīd love to know!
So far sheīs been great answering emails.
Iīm so super duper excited, please help!! POLL IS FOUR POSTS DOWN!!
