Bigger Diamond for existing Platinum ring
I hand carved this ring some five years ago. Having a 1.15CT Princes cut Diamond in it.

The princes cut was illusion set, giving it a bigger look than it was. The now set Cushion Cut fills in all available space, filling the center of the ring. Completing the original desired design.

I think you use too simple terms, this is not just “very good, very manly” this is “awesomely great & unbelievable”! When Dianne & I talked on how this would look I had no idea it would look like this!! If you have not already and can still do it please sign & date it. I look forward on thanking you in person. If you need a place to stay when on Island we have a guest bedroom.
Once I put it on I probably will not take it off.
Thank you so much.
Sometimes I have requests items made from sentimental pieces of jewelry. In this case it was a set of wedding bands and well-worn ring.
