Curious to see some pics of it if so. It looks really nice on the website. :naughty:


Ive been looking at some settings to go with a 1ct GOG avc stone. So far, these are the tops, below (I know she prefers a pave setting). I love the precision and clean design of the Vatche settings but they are also at the top end of the price scale. The Elena is listed for rounds so I'll have to see if it can fit a cushion. But its between the Vatche and the other WF offerings and has a little more detail than the cheaper WF settings...


WF Harmony setting in 18K 0.42ct aca 2.3mm width $1595

WF Elena in 18K 0.50ct aca 2mm $1795

Vatche Fifth Ave in 18K 0.27ct 2.6mm $2095 This one reminds me of the Tiffany Novo.

I haven't seen anyone with that setting but all those options are beautiful! Have you considered Van Craeynest settings? They are expensive but are works of art IMO. There are a few that are being resold and I bet VC could modify them to fit your AVC :naughty:

Doesn't hurt to ask! Here they are

Shamefully, I must admit I've never heard of Van Craeynest. That first ring is stunning :-o albeit, out of my price range. If I could afford a ring of that magnitude though, I'd probably be all over a Leon Mege Lotus ;-)
Thanks for posting the links, those are quite beautiful!

Sorry that I haven't been around in a while to see this post but stumbled across it so I thought I would just offer my two cents if you are still in the deciding process. I am the one that designed it, my wife wanted simple/elegant and that is what I came up with. It is a great setting and I have a ton of pics if you are interested, although that link posted has a good number of the original pics I posted. The only thing I would warn is it is a delicate setting, probably more so than I expected. About 3 months after my wife having it (only wearing about 30% of the time) a stone fell out. Things like that happen and no problems since but just wanted to remind bad that come with the good. Overall, we love the setting and get many compliments on it. The stone in the pictures online is my wife's stone and it is 1.3 ctw but I think it would be just as beautiful with as small as 1 and as big as 2+. Good luck with the decision process and let me know if I can offer any more help.

Hello DS and thank you very much! I don't want to thread rob but I definitely wanted to say hello. We were married August 7th at the Grand Hyatt in Tampa. Maybe one of these days I will post pictures in SMTB, the "bling" being my gorgeous wife of course!! :Up_to_something: hahahaha
