    So .... my search for "the one" has finally ended. and it was with me all along. I just kept getting distracted.

    The original ring:

    [​IMG]

    and DK to the rescue -- he was able to remove the sapphire without harming the stone or the setting:
    [​IMG]

    I had planned on setting a 9mm Amora OEC... but more distractions (Bella) ... but finally with the help of Beth at Schubach's I found my dream stone -- 9mm FB OEC. and now that stone is finally home!

    Specs:
    JbEG Julia Bezel
    PD 950
    Size 5.625 (sized between 5.5 and 5.75)
    9mm 3ct FB OEC
    stone set by DK

    and it's just my luck that the day I get it, it's overcast and soon to be rainy. But here are photos and videos anywho:

    It really does look very white. It's super overcast today and I'm standing by an open window:

    The photos make it look a little whiter, but not by much.

    And videos!!

    I was worried the full bezel would darken the stone and make it less crisp, but nope! Still gorgeous:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the profile view of this ring. I was worried the moissy color wouldn't lend itself well to this design, but I actually really love it. and even on a day like today, it looks good! I'm impressed:

    Thanks, jcent.... I'm so happy and content it's a little weird. haha. I'm so used to getting something and immediately seeing all the flaws... but I can't find any with this ring.

    It's kinda nice.

    Now I can move on to my YG project! YAY!

    Wow... It looks amazing!!!!

    And I'm in awe of David Klass that he could switch out a stone in a bezel without harming the setting or the stone!

    I know, borismom! I was pretty shocked too because I gave him specific instructions to crack the sapphire and on top of that he did it on the cheap.... I'm talking super cheap... like less than $100.

    I'm a 5.5, but I had this sized between 5.5 and 5.75... so a 5.625?

    My fingers swell in the summer and if I'm doing a lot of activity so 5.5 can get snug and muffin toppy, but 5.75 is too big... so DK was able to size it inbetween for me.

    It's perfect.

    Absolute perfection! I came sooooo close to buying your sapphire ring and doing just this! And then it was removed from the "market." [​IMG]

    I know this is a total keeper, but just in case..... SHOTGUN!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
