Hello everyone, I am knew here.
TLDR I missed out on a ring twice so now I'm looking for one just like it.

A couple years ago I missed out on an old cut pear set in a CvB ring, I think the setting is called Norah? The listing was on ebay. I'm pretty active on instagram in the jewelry community and recently one of my jewelry friends posted her new (to her) old cut pear ring and it looked identical to the one I missed out on. She and I were chatting last night and it hadn't even crossed my mind that it might be the same ring I had missed out on. She said the person she bought it from had bought it on ebay. I found the old photos of the one I missed out on and remembered some details about it. Turns out it is the exact same ring! Such a small world.
Anyway, I am still lusting after the ring. While I do have first dibs *if* she ever decides to sell it, I want to keep looking for an identical one.
Please let me know if anyone finds a CvB pear setting. I'm also looking for an old cut pear. I like chubbier ones.
Thank you so much!
P.S. I will add photos later. I don't have them on my new laptop yet.

Just bumping this up because I can't get this ring out of my mind. Thinking about it 24/7. I'd like to try to find one like it or find an antique cut pear.

I think your best bet is to find a stone and have Caysie replicate the setting she did before. The outline of pears varies hugely even for the same weight range, it’s not like fitting a new MRB into a preloved setting that held one where the size/outline is likely to be very close. Or you could approach Caysie about finding the stone for you too to make life easy?

Plus one. Don't get a setting first. That makes no sense really.

Also, look at the dimensions of the stones you are looking at. Each one is going to be quite different. I wouldn't write certain stones off just because of the stated carat weight.

Excellent point. I'm hesitant on even having one made. I think I'm just having a hard time because this was the ring that got me interested in antique jewelry and old cut diamonds to begin with. It is literally on my mind every day. I worry that I won't like it as much as "the one". I hope that makes sense.
