I need some honest feedback please. I'm posting this in the Customer Gallery because I know it is one of the most popular forums and this "may" be mine soon.
My collection of colored stone rings varies a lot, both in the type of stone and they type of setting, which is what I like - variety!
I recently acquired a gorgeous very bright vivid pink Mahenge oval. It is as vibrant as my red, but very pink, not red. It is 9.7 x 6.9 to give you an idea of size.
What I need from you ladies is an honest opinion of a setting I found. I was able to get some pictures with the stone set in the setting and I want to know what you think. (yes the tag is still on the setting).
It is waaaaay more blingy than any setting I own, and while I thinkit is very pretty visually, I'm not sure whether or not it is too over the top.... If I got it, I doubt that I would wear it very often, as it would be a most "noticeable" ring if you know what I mean, but I have several rings now that I feel like I can wear almost anywhere, so this would be one of those "just on special occasions".
On the one hand, I'm afraid it's too much and why would I get a ring I would seldom wear.... on the other hand, it would be a statement piece (I think) and the whole point is to have something that doesn't look like everything else I have. I'll post a couple of photos including some comparison pics to my Cuprian tourmaline ring and my red mahenge, which are my two other "blingy" rings.
Honest opinions please. I'm not posting this on PS because I'm not after opinions of the Mahenge, it's mine and I love it - lol, I'm after opinions of the stone in the setting and I think you guys are often a better judge of that.
Oh, and I need to decide soon
