You need to move this beauty to Show Me The Bling (click the link at the bottom of your post and ask the moderators to move it) and take a few more pics to show us the details. Your new setting looks great!

@Luvallgems, Wow. Stunning ring.:love:
I loved her in the art deco setting too but she is glorious and beautiful in your new elegant setting. A different stone completely. Wear her in healthy and blingy happiness.:appl:

And please share many more photos with us.:love:
Ask a mod to move this thread to SMTB.

Missy, Maybelle is a completely different girl. I could not be any happier
with the result ! For those who think settings don’t make a difference,
they are mistaken. The Erika Winter’s setting has “perfect proportions ”:kiss2:

Yes the setting can make or break a stone! I also think there is more than one right setting for a stone and that is where my struggle lays right now. But loving your new girl and she shines so brightly in her new home. Maybelle rocks it.:love::appl::bigsmile:

I see, now, what everyone was talking about! You released some inner essence from your beautiful stone when you removed the restrictive setting she was in. It reminds me of stories where a sculptor releases a person from a block of marble with his chisel. Your stone is gorgeous in her new setting! Good job, Luvallgems! She is running free now!

I am thinking your thread title is incorrect because I don't think that is an EW (Erika Winters) setting. It appears to be the Julia setting from Erica of Love Affair Diamonds. If the latter is correct, I'd honestly ask the moderator to delete this thread and start another one in the Show Me the Bling part of the forum with the correct credits!

Lovely diamond and setting, though! Hope you'll start the new thread so more people can see it!

You are right, Julia is from LAD, my mistake. Bought from preloved.
Both Erika and Erica have beautiful settings, I could not be happier
with mine!

Very beautiful before and after. I love the new setting due to how versatile the ring now is. Looks great stacked with your bands.

Oh it looks gorgeous, I adore the Julia, it is my all time favorite solitaire setting. You are so lucky! Your previous setting is very pretty too but this one really lets your beautiful diamond be the star of the show. Enjoy it!

[email protected] was looking for a delicate eight prong setting,
lucky to have found on Pre Loved. I was inspired by @ceg.
Big ole Rookie mistake getting the Big “E’s” confused!!!!

I knew I hadn't seen this setting in EW's current line but I knew she also had a lot of settings some time ago. No matter, the LAD setting is beautiful! You made a great choice!!!! When I first joined ps, I also confused the Ericas!

The stone is beautiful at home in its new setting!! But it was beautiful in its old setting too....what are you doing with the old setting, are you selling it? I find it lovely. I love those heavy deco pieces. :love:
