Omg I literally have a folder of these on my phone somewhere hahaha. I love this thread. Let me see what I can find on my computer in the meantime.

Okay it seems that I like halos/clusters hahahaha.

Oh I love these all! Especially the last 3 as I am a sucker for bezels! Nothing wrong with knowing what you like :)

Feel free to share as many as you want!

Oh goodness. So that would be most of the rings saved on my phone :lol-2:
But ok settings. I’m not into very ornate settings but these ones I loooooove

A few select details can make all of the difference and really elevate a simple design. I am increasingly appreciative of subtle gallery details - and boy I love the ruby cuff!

Cool thread I will look through and post some of mine later. However setting number 3 is one of my favourites too hence why I got a replica made for my blue sapphire! I think it originally had an aquamarine in it!
More pics in this thread
In the end I think the outcome was great just a shame my sapphire wasn’t twice the size! B6B84673-80DB-426A-86C6-95F9F28E035B.jpeg

I think your ring turned out just gorgeous!

I *love* this setting. Has anyone seen it with a colored stone? I wonder how it would look with a blue sapphire...

Right?!

I was contemplating it for my own blue sapphire, but mine is an oval and I think this would best compliment at round or cushion.

I think it would be spectacular with a colored stone - many varieties! I could even see a red / pink stone with a YG milgrained bezel, the rest platinum...

I know many PSers are research hounds and have provided beautiful inspiration images to other PSers who are stuck on designing a setting.

So - I want to see - what are your dream settings? I am narrowing this to true antiques/vintage settings, antique/vintage styled or full on reproductions. Any era. Show me what you have coveted! Ranging from the wildly impractical but absolutely gorgeous to I need this for my next project.

I will share a few of my loves to get started....I hope to use all of these one day for projects!


This stunner from Sin City which I hope to reproduce for a ruby or red spinel:

This Edwardian style ring sold by Victor Barbone which I might use for my milky pink sapphire:

This Art Nouveau butterfly ring sold by Pebble & Polish:

You have picked my favorite rings too, so many settings and so few fingers.

Here’s another that I think looks beautiful with a sapphire:

@Cerulean - I am very seriously considering getting this ring made. First, I’ll need to find the perfect sapphire. I will post for help in the Colored Stones forum when I’m ready!
