Yay! My reset arrived today. I had this diamond set in a pendant, which was very pretty, but.... I felt like it got lost in my clothes. I just was never quite happy with it.

Last month, dimend SCAASI had a special where they would reset your own diamond -- even if you didn''t purchase the stone from them. They did an excellent job with my wedding set, I decided to let them have a go at this one. They did not disappoint. I am ecstatic with my new RHR.

They also put together a wax band for me, so that I could see if I wanted to purchase a matching band. I''m still undecided on this one, as it is a RHR; however, I still think it looks good. The wax band is 4 mm wide, but I''m thinking it might be too wide. Maybe knock it down to 3 mm??? What do y''all think?

Anyway, the center stone is .92 ct/F/VS1 Emerald Cut. It''s not a perfectly cut stone, but I love it anyway. It does put off a fantabulous sparkle in the sun!

Enjoy the pictures!

Here''s the first picture in the box.

Another profile view. I love the "U" sweeping shape of the prongs.

first view with the wax band.

Do y''all think it''s too chunky? I''m really thinking a thinner band might work better.

last one for now.

I haven''t gotten to see it in the daylight, yet. These pictures were taken by lamplight. I''ll get some sunny ones in the next couple of days.

EXACTLY! That''s the main reason I wanted it set sideways. Now, I get to look down and enjoy the view. I LURV emerald cuts. I have two! Thanks for the compliment!

I love the ring its beautiful!! I think I agree with you, personally I think the matching band would look nice a little thinner. But not too much. 3mm might be just right

Goodluck and congrats!

Ooohh I ADORE this ring! I have an EC just sitting in a box, just a hair larger than yours, and yours looks amazing. If it isn''t too incredibly rude to ask - how much did it set you back?

Okay. I found a 3mm sterling silver band to put with it for size gauging. I think 3mm might be the way to go.

What a gorgeous, sleek, modern setting! Something about the cut and the set and the metal makes me think Art Deco - very elegant and 1940''s! And personally, I think the matching band looks stunning next to it width-wise ....

Hey MonkeyPie!

Thanks! It wasn''t too, too bad. It''s 14kt rose and white gold for $800. They made CADs and everything. It''s style 1A on their website. Not rude at all! I''d want to know how much it was, too!

Which matching band do you like better -- the wider (wax version) or the thinner 3mm version?

Monkey,

I forgot to add that -- to me -- the ring doesn''t look "all that" on the website. But... my husband and I were in Chicago this summer, so we visited them in person. I immediately fell for this setting! Clean lines. Sleek. I hadn''t even really noticed it until then. It just goes to show you how different things can look in person.

Whoops, sorry! We cross-posted, and I didn''t even see the silver band ... while it looks lovely, I actually like the broader width more, for some reason. It just has ... presence.
