I pulled my 2.6 carat pear out of a yellow gold bezel and worked with David (who was great) to create this new home for her. It’s platinum, tri-wire with two French cut side stones.

These are stills from David’s video. I’ll post my own when the ring arrives!

His work is amazing. It rivals Singlestone without the super high prices. I love it. I can't wait to have David make some new pieces for me. I also look forward to seeing your IRL hand shots.

The stone is pretty narrow, with the ratio to show and she’s a bit on the shallow side. So she faces up like a 3 carat stone. Thinking she will arrive Monday.

Here is the setting she came out of. She’s been in it for about 8 years the stone is cut well for its ago and a VS clarity but has some real tint & color. Before this gold setting she was in a classic 5 platinum prong setting but the bezel on this stone is extremely whisper thin - so I put her in the gold bezel to better protect the girdle. That was my first custom project and I was happy with the work but I’ve learned a lot in the intervening years.

But I came to the conclusion that given her tint, she looks better in all platinum.

That's beautiful! Definitely befitting her grandeur!

Thanks for including pics of the old setting. I had a pear (1.08) in a 3 stone with baguettes and took it out too. I love its newer setting
much more!

The new bezel makes her nice a cubby! Such a great look - thanks for including the yellow gold setting it is fun to see the different lives a stone can have.

Your reset is amazbling! It is truly a beautiful design and really showcases your stone. I love the clean lines and the tri-wire shank, and the French cut accents, too! :love: Please come back and indulge us with many hand shots!!

I’m sorry but what tint? I genuinely can’t see any overt tint, maybe a small impression of warmth? in the new setting. In the old setting, it looks like a light yellow! How amazing.
Looking forward to handshots. It is stunning reset!
