I’ve had this CZ ring I ordered from Shantastic on Etsy forever. Today I remembered I also had this Berricle ring that I don’t really wear (actually thought I sold it) and thought “let’s make a thing”.

First the CZ ring in its original sterling setting, it is pale pink OEC cut, 8mm. You can order these loose online and they are super affordable.

Then a pic of the stone loose and the Berricle ring:

Now I am no expert, I literally used a pair of needle nose pliers and tried to get the stone as straight as possible. Here is the result:

Please ignore my swollen hands, summer is very unkind to those prone to swelling! I’m super happy with this though. Wish Berricle made rings with antique cut CZ’s, how awesome would that be?

Thanks @Sparkles88! I am enjoying the CZ sparkles but also this is 8mm and in the past I felt that was too big but now it’s looking like the perfect size :)

@Mreader are you setting the stones yourself? Did you get clear or a color? There are so many choices for color and cut it’s a bit overwhelming. Although I did notice the pale pink tint CZ in OEC cut is sold out. I was thinking of buying another to play with another time but will have to wait.

I got the warm color since a colorless OEC is pretty unheard of and I wanted them to look as natural as possible. I bought six prong earring settings off Etsy and no I am having a jeweler put them in because I don’t think I could do it correctly. In fact it didn’t look like they were going to fit. These will be my fun and travel earrings because my dream earrings are 4 ctw (or more lol) OECs. Probably not going to happen!!

They look great @Mreader! Best of all of you lose one it’s not like losing diamonds, you can just have another earring made!
