Hi all...newbie here. This site has been so helpful in general so now I am going to ask for personal help! I have a 2.17 oval, D, SI-1. measures approx. 12 x 9. I am thinking of re mounting, right now it is in a very "flashy" 90''s yellow gold with everything possble! 2.30 tw of baguettes, rounds, and squares. Whew...It makes my head spin
. Anyway, I do not wear a wedding band and don''t want to start, I think that is part of the reason I ended up with such a chunky ring. How can I simplify and still "look married"??

I love Kaleigh''s oval and half moons...would it work as well with a 2 ct? I also love Toni Braxton''s oval and hearts...no matter where it came from.....any other suggestions...also what to do with old mount...I am thinking citrine???

Will try to post pics tonite.

P.S. I also have a 1.5 pear in a halo with pave shank, so I think halois out for the oval. I will look forward to your ideas..I think this will be a fun place!

Welcome!

I think an oval with half moons is a classic, so that could definitely be an option, or an oval with side baguettes, lots of possible choices! How exciting!

Welcome to Pricescope.
I vote for a platinum setting like Kaleigh''s if you don''t want to have the stone set by itself in platinum.

I think an oval with pear sides would be yummy!

Thanks for the suggestions....The samples are beautiful! And yes, I think pears would be terrific as side stones! How big for side stones with my 2 ct.

I am going to try attaching pics now...hope I can.

You might consider an east west setting for finger coverage.

Or, I love this Maevona oval setting

Put that baby with half moons, such a great look... Pear sides would be great too.

I wear a setting that I don''t like with any band as my e-ring. Yeah, you will occasionally hear people ask "Oh, are you engaged?" but generally I think people assume that if you have a ring on that finger, you''re married. One way or the other, I prefer it alone so I just don''t care what other people assume, I guess.

So, I''d just go with whatever you want, and don''t worry about whether it says "married" or not. I love the pears or half moons idea. Classic but fun!

Oh- there is a gorgeous ring that pauly1 has by Greenlake Jewelers that is a cushion, but the cushion looks oval-y, and I think it''s one of the most gorgeous settings ever. There''s a pic most of the way down the page on this thread: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/show-me-3-5-4-5-size-finger-with-diamond-ring.108097/page-2 . Yummy! (And definitely a look I''ve coveted!)

Beautiful stone! I''d put that oval with...Two more ovals. I happen to love the Harry Winston three stone oval setting. The double prongs on the center stone and single prongs on the sides are perfect IMO. I''d have Leon make it.

I think your oval would look beautiful w/ half moons a la Kaleigh - I think her ring is just gorgeous, and a stunning way to set an oval. On the ering-only issue, mine has 3 sided pave and I wear no band with it - who cares?? If you and your DH are happy, wear what you like

I just posted Kellybell''s oval on your SMTR thread - I''m posting it here as well. I think this is a great setting for an oval - bullets:

Yes....you are right....It''s not like I am beating off men because I have no wedding band!! I am definately leaning toward the half moons!

I second the half-moon/pear/bullet side stone setting idea. I think it will look very classy but still be fabulous bling with major finger coverage.
