I'm looking to replace the center stone of a ring I own. I'm going back and forth between gems and diamonds, but the reality is if I *could* I'd really prefer a diamond. I just have no idea what I'm looking for in terms of quality. The dimensions have to be 8x6 or under. The ring currently houses an 8x5 pear stone. I found this one:

but I've been told that my budget needs to be about $2k for the stone. I can't do that. I have to stay under $1200 if at all possible to make this happen. It's going to be bezel set, and I don't really mind lower colors. The ring is 18k pink gold with a platinum bezel and white diamond pave.

I'm looking for any help I can get because I've never bought anything this expensive online before, but I have a feeling there are better deals to be had if I do so. I am hoping to pull from your collective wisdom if I may. Both on the quality of the stone and the reputation of the seller. Thanks so much!

It's frustrating that they don't HAVE photos of the actual stones up. I contacted them yesterday but haven't heard back. I just found them via the PS search function. If there's a better place to look please let me know!

You could try calling them or another of the PS vendors and discussing with them what you need and what they would recommend. Fancy shapes are hard to judge without pics.

Have you talked to the jeweler who is going to do the reset to see what dimensions the setting needs the stone to be?

Here are some options depending on what your jeweler stays...the cuts on these arent that great but these are an improvment
over those GOG stones (IMO)
