+1!! Something about the split shank on a pear just makes me swoon!diamondseeker2006|1455211324|3989773 said:Halo with split shank!!!!! I love split shanks on both pears and ovals!
I agree with the brightcut suggestion. I think pears look amazing with bright cut pave with 1/2 pointers.Niel|1455220924|3989824 said:I think a split shank would be lovely. My only suggestion is doing it bright set,because I think the fluidity of the melee accentuates the shape of both the slip and the pear.
And you could millgrain it if you where so inclined.
Of the two gypsy posted I like this best. And I like it better than some.of the examples above too. I personally prefer the split to meet, as if actually splitting one shank into too, rather than two running next to each other before the split( as seen in a few examples here)Gypsy|1455232560|3989885 said:Something like this but with a single halo and bright cut pave with 1/2 pointers around the stone would be very nice.

I never thought of it that way. Is bright aet also sturdies bc of the metal? Or is that just a style thing? Laurenk whatever u do it will be a gorgeous ring with vc making it!
Can you go to a store and look at some. In person they really don't look like channel setlaurenk|1455282394|3990110 said:I've emailed Victor and had a discussion about bright cut vs u cut. I think my heart really leans toward the u cut as something about the bright but reminds me of channel set which I've never loved totally......
Victor is getting back to me re the Anne-marie split shank and then I also wondered r single vs full
Love all the help
