Beautiful New Swarovski Chunky Rings

Hey everyone!
Hope you all have been enjoying the new season.
I've been busy with some new pieces for Bridesmaids gifts.
(As I was looking at these this morning I thought what fabulous Xmas gifts these will make too)
I have always been a huge fan of chunky rings! ...I think I'll be making a few of these to keep for myself!
So far I have two sizes available. The large emerald cut rings are fun because they are so BIG at 72 x 18.5mm in size. I currently have them in both antique silver and antique gold. Both of these finishes are nickel free. I believe I can order the bases also in silver and shiny gold plated as well but they are not nickel free.

I found a few vintage (discontinued) large Swarovski Bermuda Blue emerald cut stones for this ring. I don't know how many I'll be able to make in the future since they are very tricky to find now. At least I have a few pieces currently in stock. If you are LOVING this ring I highly recommend to swing over to my shop and pick one up while you can.
I also have these great matching earrings:
Earrings Style #E152-BB

Here is the same style using a Swarovski Emerald crystal in antique gold.
Another beautiful matching set:
These smaller rings are made from a new style Swarovski crystal which is filled with stunning facets that REALLY make them SPARKLE! This crystal focal is a 18 x 13mm size.
At first I wasn't sure if I liked the way the crystal sit in the base since the stones are slightly deeper in cut. You can see in the images that the stone does not sit deep in the base like the emerald cut style does. However, the more I looked at them I think it still looks fine. The stone sits tight and firm and I personally don't think it looks weird. I don't think anyone would really notice unless you really stare at the ring from the side view.
What do you think? Feedback always appreciated.
Loving this Swarovski Fern Green color set in gold plate.

I wanted to share these on a real hand...after looking at this image using mine I realize why there are "hand models" to do this! lol
I'm totally open to making these in custom colors! If Swaorvski makes the color you want, I'll make you a custom ring!
I really think these will make totally CUTE Bridesmaid gifts.
