A co-worker decided that she wanted bling. Being the sweet guy that I am said, can do.
She picks out the gem and told me set it in silver and I want bling.

Heres the finished product.
6.01Ct. Flawless blue topaz emerald cut.  4- 3mm accents aquamarine's VG or better.

How did I do?






Poll to follow.

Somewhat bling, but not the Gold Tec-9 3 finger ring bling.

Bling, I guess.  It looks big enough to be in a ghetto video.

I wanted to go with gold, but she didn't want to pony up $100.00 more for it.

Hey there...

Ever work with carnilian (sp?) or garnets? Those are my favorites, even more than diamonds. Seriously.

I assume he just made it as a jeweler and she's paying for it.

Actually, I think you are wrong here.

Platinum is bling.

Though I think in this instance, silver will do.

Plenty bling.

Good work yo.

Have a dentist set the stones in her front teeth!  Then it will be bling!

The prong tops are flat and look like shit from the tool marks, you need to round those off.

Its not bling until you have platinum-plated diamond encrusted 24" rims on your Bentley.

I have to agree with glazer. No gold. No bling.

Blingage.
Yet somethow, it does not look too tacky. I suppose on some level that may preclude it from being bling.
But, the bling factor is rated on an inverse curve scale beset by how pimp the bearer of the bling looks without it.

Who cares what we think ......... the question is "Does she like it???"

But if you want my opinion I think I looks very nice and she should be very pleased with it.......... until she sees the bill..........

Bling is gold and ice.  Emeralds are not ice and there is no gold.  Not bling. Now these guys had bling:
