Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 01/30/12 03:38 PM

So stats:

7.5mm ACC Wink stone
setting is yellow gold head, unplated WG shank
light Tiffany setting

Comments: the prong work is immaculate. I don't think I knew what nice jewelry was until I saw this ring. It is perfect at all angles. Melissa suggested the YG to make the color pop, great idea!

The color is a warm buttery yellow, very delicate and faint. I love the color because I am pretty pale and it looks nice against my skin color. In some settings it almost looks near color less (like in bars where the lights are dim and our stones sparkle like crazy).

Hubby thinks it's gigantic, I agree a little bit. I love the time before shrinkage sets in smile I am so glad I went with the 7.5mm it had pop but is still reasonable for my finger.

This is kind of like my weekend ring. I like that it is a little bit similar to my e-ring. It looks like my e-ring but if it put on some high heels, fake eye lashes, and is ready to hit the town.

Ok picture time! I'm sorry for iphone pics, but I was so excited to post I couldn't wait!!!

I'm a 3.5. This is my first YG experience and it looks so rich and lovely .... I was always a white metal girl, but now I GET IT!

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 01/30/12 05:40 PM

Yay, thank you guys!

I love it. The high crown is so fun. What do we think of the band with it?

I feel like I have millions of different color metals going on: WG, YG, unplated WG.

What kind of band would you wear with the ring?

the more unplated white gold I see the more I love it

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 01/30/12 11:12 PM

I love the buttery glow on its own, and then the white stones of your band next to it really makes it pop. It makes for two very different looks, one soft and one bold. You kind of got a double-dip-deal there, didn't ya?

I was thinking that no way could that be a 7.5 mm stone, it had to be a 9 mm. Then I saw that your ring size is a tiny 3.5 and it made more sense. 3.5?!?! My man hands admit that they are envious. smile

Man hands?!?! Your fingers look tiny in your avatar! Thank you for the very sweet compliment, I do think 7.5 is my max size for cushions. The cushion shape has nice coverage.

Oh "Honey" you are delightful! She's a beauty, and looks fantastic on your itty bitty finger! I'd say it's the perfect size for you smile

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 01/31/12 02:16 PM

Thanks Mama!

I was thinking I might need a different band to go with this ring. Poll time!

I'm really digging the yellow gold and the unplated WG. Here are my top 3 candidates. If you ladies know of a place where I can get the swirly YG band (or similar one) in unplated WG please let me know smile smile smile

Option 1: Twig



Option 2: Bling-a-rama (I may would have to get the CZ version of this, this set is 2k)





Option 3: Swirly



Posted by: kangaroocrazy

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 01/31/12 02:19 PM

Ahhhhhhhhh, I want to vote for two!
I love Bling and Swirly!

This is what I think of Twig!! sick

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 01/31/12 02:21 PM

Kanga,

Was there a lovely lady on the thread that bough a really pretty CZ band maybe it was pink and sparkly? I think her center stone was pink?

Ahahahahahaha! Take that twig cool


Posted by: flashfrenzy

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 01/31/12 02:34 PM

For your ring I'm digging swirly in gold! I do love twig bands and have considered them many times for myself. But your ring needs feminine and pretty...

Posted by: NewSparkle

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 01/31/12 02:42 PM

Swirly in the lead!

I like twig bands in close up pictures, sometimes I think from far away it can look like an uneven band if it's not done "quite right."

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 01/31/12 09:04 PM

It makes my heart happy to see someone love their new ring so much!

The sparkly sister had a new ring with a pink center stone (maybe morganite, maybe moissy). I think her ring had a halo. With it she wore two bands. One band was rose gold with diamonds (I think blush ) the other band was a CZ. Both were very thin pave style bands, maybe 1.5mm?

Thanks Kanga, you're awesome!

Posted by: MamaCass

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 02/01/12 05:46 AM

I like all 3 options, but I'm torn between bling a rama, and swirly! I actually wear a swirly and a thin cz eternity band stacked with my solitaire when I'm not wearing my uber wide band. Maybe you can get both! Wear swirly for everyday, and then bling a Rama for those days you wanna be extra sparklie:) or mix em up together for a super fab look! Obviously I'm not really helping you decide am I lol!!

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 02/01/12 10:17 AM

IT's STUNNING!!!!!! Isn't Winks antique cut stone just phenomenal!!!!!! laugh

...... and of course I LOVE LOVE LOVE unplated white gold ( my Darling Dreamy ) and the mix with the yellow.... GORGEOUS!!!!! I think the swirl band would be killer with it...

.... Congrats.... it looks amazing on you.... wink

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 02/01/12 11:45 AM

You are thinking of GingerKaBluey's bands with her morganite ring. smile

I just saw this thread and am late, but your ring looks stunning in you smile

Posted by: NewSparkle

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 02/01/12 04:04 PM

Mama: I would get a second and third job to buy both and mix them. Oh what fun that would be!

Roo: I am very honest that Dreamy was a huge inspiration for me. I love, love your ring and Wink's antique cuts. Your ring kind of sealed the deal for me, I was like : WANT!

Jcent: Yes, yes, yes! That's the thread and thank you for the very sweet compliments smile

And MissKK,...I almost peed my pants the dog carrier was so funny!!


And that ring!! OMG,..can you possibly love a Wink CZ more than moissy????

Posted by: NewSparkle

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 02/03/12 04:31 PM

Kanga,

It's so hard.... I love both so much. I love the Moissy for durability (poor little guy has been through a lot), I love the Wink stone toooooooo, but I'm so worried about it. When I wear it I basically try not to use my left hand at all. crazy That's probably just because the ring is new though. crazy crazy

One thing I can say is that I am digging the finger coverage of this baby, when I put on my e-ring, I thought: did this little guy shrink?

I went with the canary, Ginger got the light yellow. I love both colors. The canary is very pale yellow and looks diamond-like in some lighting and yellow sapphire-color in others.

I got a pretty simple setting and it was quite affordable. What kind of ring are you thinking of getting? I love hearing about new rings coming to fruition! smile smile

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 02/09/12 05:59 AM

I might have missed it but what is the colour of your stone? Light Yellow or something darker? Winks ACC's are my all time favourite stone, I have something like 7 or 8 of them waiting to be set.

I feel faint looking at that delicious stone...you have great taste! OOPs nevermind, I just saw you mentioned yours is Canary...gorgeous!

Posted by: NewSparkle

Re: Honey, oooh sugar sugar........ you are my lovely ring! - 02/09/12 06:45 PM

Deb, thank you I love it! Melissa mentioned that it is very light yellow before I bought it. She advised Medium yellow for the "Fancy Yellow Diamond" look.

Tell all about your stones and the plans for them!!!! smile
