A Step Up - Setting Help for an Anniversary Ring

First off, thank you so much for recommending Jerry from Gemart Services. I contacted him recently in the search for a perfectly pale pink emerald cut striking stone to start a 10 year anniversary ring project. I don't have anything in a step cut and seeing all the beautiful asschers and emeralds on here, I was definitely craving one. Long story short, we had many conversations about some tourmaline rough he had and what types of shades I was interested in. Meanwhile, on his gems for sale page, he had this striking topaz that I just couldn't stop thinking about. It was alot bigger than I wanted and not in a classic emerald cut, but I knew I had to have it.

So here are the details, as descibed by Jerry:

An uncommon light pink topaz from Pakistan especially clean with a unique "Mixed Rectangle" cut
7.42ct
12.5×9mm

So now my dilemma. I was originally planning for a 3 stone ring with double claw rose gold prongs and side traps. But now I am not sure if the stone is too big for a three ring, and am considering just a solitaire with double claw prongs.

Any and all setting advice and help if appreciated and thoughts on the stone. Thanks so much!

I like setting #1. Your stone is longer then the on in setting #2. Your stone actually reminds me of a yellow diamond posted on here. I'm gonna look for the thread to show you her setting.

Very pretty gemstone. I think a setting with some diamond accents would be pretty but both of your samples are pretty too.

I like both settings but like the one with the diamond accents a little more. How big are your fingers?

I'm between a 5.5 and 6. I usually go with a 6 just to accomodate for hotter summer months.

I'm adding another setting to the mix. I came across this while browsing the eye candy thread. I apologize, I can't remember who it belongs to. It's absolutely stunning, and I think my stone is very similar in size and measurement. Thoughts?

I think this is a very pretty ring... I also like the solitaire but with a bezel to add emphasis to the clipped-corner shape.
