So, I'm really, really hoping my sister hasn't found this site, yet - because I need some help finding a .50 ct. EC that will look gorgeous set E/W. I have seen some with really heavily clipped corners that just don't look so great when viewed east-west, and this is extremely important to the setting.

Also, here is what I know of the setting.

1. Emerald cut set east - west, bewteen .45 and .65, anywhere from a D-H, VVS1-VS2.
2. She wants it bezel set, but I'm out of ideas other than a traditional half bezel - my creative juices have dried up! I know she wants platinum of white gold, but probably platinum. She has a size 4.5 finger, so diamond finger coverage isn't too bad with that size EC.
3. What do you guys think about a .15 ct. step cut traps bezel set along-side the EC?

If I could ask of some guidance of you fine people, I would be very, very, very appreciative!

I think that stone would look great set east-west. And I like the idea of traps, too. I''m no expert, though!

The stats sure looks nice as is the stone in the rotating picture!
I''m sure she''ll love it. What type of metal are you looking for? WG or PT? Need side stones? What is your budget for the setting? I''ll keep an eye out for a EW bezel.

Thank you!

OK, here''s the idea.

He wants 18k white gold for her, and we''re thinking of bezel setting the step cut trapezoids, maybe .25 each? I think his budget is $3k in diamonds, and up to $2k for the setting.

I just tried to call Whiteflash, but their phone lines are down. Have any idea why?

Irina did this picture for me: a bezel set EW center stone with two smaller side stones. No idea about who makes the setting though.

Yeah, they aren't diamonds, but when you mentioned bezel, this just popped into my head.
