New Ring

Here's a moissanite wedding ring I finished yesterday that I'm quite pleased with. It's similar to one I've made a few times before, but I increased the width of the band to 6mm and upgraded to a 6mm stone (comparable in size to a 0.8 carat diamond). It really looks a lot more blingy than the original, although they both have their own kind of appeal.

The stone is so much more sparkly in real life; I'm afraid I haven't figured out the secret to capturing that in my photos yet.

I'd like to learn more about you. Could you please do a post on 7 random facts about yourself. The instructions are on my blog here:

Hi Tamara, to answer your question about capturing the true sparkle of these stones, you need a specialty lightbulb called 'Diamond Dazzler'. You can see this here:

That should do it since these stones are so similar to diamonds... I hope this helps! Cheers, Nat :)
