Custom geometric solitaire carved for this fat 2+ carat cushion (7.5mm diameter roughly). Palladium 950.
Everything went really well when making this ring: I feel like my carving turned out very precisely, the casting went perfectly, finishing went very well (I finally found some new polishing stuff that works WAY better with palladium that the compounds I was using previously—more steps, but less tedium and burned fingers!), I was a little stressed about setting such a large non-round stone, but even that went extremely smoothly. My client was a total sweetheart too!
I’d say I was just damned happy with pretty much everything about this ring! Many more pics after the click:
