Barry cut this beautiful garnet for me (after I whined to him that I NEED a garnet cushion - poor guy) and it fits in my LOGR, but I think it's too dark for the setting and the color gets much darker, probably not a stone meant for a bezel. Outside the setting it's much brighter. Do you think it's too dark? It probably is, but it's good to get other opinions. In the meantime, I will keep it and use it for something else. I really wanted a cushion garnet and I got one - yay, so I'm happy about that. It still sparkes in the setting and doesn't look black at all, but I don't know if the bezel is the best option for this stone. On the other hand, I could have them build something for this stone to bring it up higher so that I can prong set it in the mount.
