I wish I could cue you in on who I really am but.. I can't for now.. but.. I've been here for, oh, forever. <3

So.. I have this 3.42ct yellow sapphire. I need ideas for this oval stone. Measurements are 9.40 x 7.30 x 5.90.

How would you set it? :naughty: Thanks in advance!!

I know who you are, my dear lady. ;)) Umm, given that it is a good sized stone, are you thinking solitaire, halo, or 3 stone?

Hi :wavey:

This will be a "I'm single" ring.. I'm not looking for a 3 stone because that would remind me of my engagement ring. I'll wear it as a rhr. And, I'm open to maybe white & yellow gold, to show off the stone. This is a liberator kind of ring.. :wink2:

I think yellow sapphires look best in white gold.

Maybe set it East/West?

Maybe? I'm torn between something David Klass and a piece I saw on Leon's page quite a while back that was E/W.

No, I don't see it on his site now :( It was e/w, bezel set and pave curved band.. I wish I could find that photo. It didn't look like an engagement ring.

Hello :wavey:
I'm new here so you have not lost me :)

That stone is oh-so-pretty! I simply LOVE that colour! So I think I would set it in something like this to show of the colour as most as possible.. :love:

I did kind of look at the Sholdt.. I don't really care for the pave.. did I just really say that?! :confused:

This is turning out to be more difficult than I thought!

Oh, ok. So we want very much the opposite of engagement.

What if it has pave or side stones that where not diamond? Like a colored stone of some sort

I do love these two settings however.. of course the one would have to be modified...but I don't want to put out TOO much of an arm & a leg.. ::) With the second one, I'd change it a little and not have the top and bottom diamond sections & bezel yellow with the rest white..

Beverley k makes this one. But again. It's a bezel.

Though I've seen then put prongs where they had bezels before, so maybe they could do it again

No, I believe that picture itself is on Beverley Ks Instagram. But should be in their website as well. I would hope they could adjust the baguettes proportionately

I'm going to keep searching.. I know I don't have a huge budget up to 2k, but this is such a big deal for me.

Super similar to this, but the stone is completely surrounded by yellow gold bezel and the shoulders are pave. (I would probably do burnish set, I just like the look better).

It's actually almost exactly the yellow stone ring.

I really love that second setting.

Also, I think a lot of the settings posted won't look so engagement ringy with a coloured stone centre. Or as Niel suggested, with coloured pave. Just food for thoght!

I looove this one. I'd definitely go platinum. I've never had a plat. ring sooo... this could be a great time to do it. Maybe not an heirloom piece but definitely nice.

Ask DK to quote it - it might just be close enough to your budget, if not DiamondZone, but you'll have to scrutinize the CADs to get it right.
