Does anyone have a bezel set oval?

Hello! :bigsmile:
I pop on here from time to time when the overwhelming urge for jewellery overtakes me to indulge in a spot of obsessing before the purchase....and its time! My little oval (51pts I think from memory) needs a new home and I would really like to set it into some kind of bezel setting (maybe in the style of James Meyer or something a little simpler) but I never see ovals set this way. Is there a reason for this and does anyone have any examples I can see?

Thank you!

I actually have a James Meyer bezel set oval rose cut ring. I love it and his work.

Thank you thats really helpful, lovely rings ladies - Gothgrrl you are so lucky to have a James Meyer. I think I definately want it set E/W now so will keep looking. Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks Lottie. That would be great to set it E/W. That way you can wear a wedding band with it. I am having a band made to go with my ring. I know there's going to be a huge gap, but oh well. I'll just have to get used to it.

But I found the second ring at Diamond Source of Virginia :naughty:

Thank you for posting these it's been really helpful to look at everyones beautiful rings. I have also been trawling Pricescope for inspiration and I definately would like it to be set EW and either bezel or semi bezel.

Current favourites are Neatfreaks amazing cushion from 2008 (I hope its ok with you to put a link on here Neatfreak)

And the Sholdt Half Bezel Ring which I really like, this is the Sholdt ring but with a much bigger RB than my oval - I still think it could work though

And this is what I am working with, the thicker scatterset band and the solitaire will be remade so I will have some little diamonds of varying sizes - could they look nice scatter set around the setting? The wedding band in the photos is the ring I am keeping and I would ideally like it to sit alongside the finished ring

Any thoughts or ideas would be really gratefully received

Gothgrrl I would love to see the wedding band when its finished.

Alene that ring is divine - congratulations! I love how light blue the sapphire is, the milgraining looks great and the side profile of the ring is beautiful. I hope you don't mind but I am definately adding your ring to my montage of how I want my finished ring to look.

This was my original diamond. It was set in a regular solstice mount and I've since changed it into a bezel so that I can wear it on my right hand. It's a .55ct G SI1 mounted in 14k white gold tubular bezel.

Sparklee your ring is lovely, I particuarly like the tubular bezel - really elegant and minimal. Thanks :bigsmile:

Gothgrrl I spend far too much time thinking about it! Am pretty set now on the final decision, just need to wait until we have been on holiday to get the wheels rolling. To be honest I am grateful that this is a recycling project - I would'nt like to be starting from scratch with the current gold and diamond prices!
