I bought a teeny .21 carat pink diamond (here's the thread https://www.pricescope.com/communit...hoosing-between-2-fancy-pink-diamonds.160744/ and it has pictures) and it's jaw-droppingly beautiful :appl: It's also jaw-droppingly teeny :tongue:




I don't want something super diminutive at this point so I am considering a double halo for it in rose gold, with white diamonds.

I am thinking of something like what Pricescope LovingDiamonds has (same head as her diamond is similar to mine dimensions wise) :

How much do you think I will end up spending on the setting? I have asked Sally from Heart of Water for a quote. (I would not be shipping my pink to her though).

Ideas to enhance finger coverage and boost pinkness please :love:

Oh, it's absolute pink happiness! :love: :love: :love:

Congratulations. I like LD's setting a lot. It would certainly give you the finger coverage you desire! What about alternating the colors of gold for the halo?

I am sure you'll get many phenomenal suggestions. Good luck and keep us posted, please.

It's lovely. Since it's a delicate shade of pink, I would probably use a basket in rose gold, and then surround it with a double halo of white diamonds in white gold. This will dramatically emphasize the pink color of the stone. I don't think it's super small for a pink diamond. Once you set it, it will look much bigger. They always look so tiny unset. Congrats on your FCD purchase!

I probably would not use a yellow diamond halo around it, as that may clash with the pink, and you want the pink to be the stand out here.

I'm glad you like my ring! I like your diamond!!!!

Just a suggestion - I wouldn't surround your pink with white diamonds in rose gold - that looks very strange. Either use rose gold and pink melee (as in the halo in my ring) or, as TL has suggested, white diamonds with white gold. Although I would set your pear in rose gold. Does all that make sense?

You can see from my setting above, the pink melee, merges with the pink pear. If that's the look you want then go for it. If not and you want to enhance the pink, use white diamonds/white gold. This particular ring is a good size on the finger and gives good coverage so don't be worried about it looking lost. Here's a hand shot to show you. So you can gauge it, the pink in this ring is very very similar to the one you've bought.

Ooh, LovingDiamonds, that is sooo super!!! Can you tell me where you bought the setting? Or did the person who sold the diamond to you make the ring for you?

Sorry it was bought as a finished ring and I believe they only made 3 (probably due to finding the pinks). I'm pretty sure this was handmade.

Sally at HeartofWater set another pink for me into a phenomenal pendant and I'm sure she could do something similar. I guess sourcing the melee may be a little troublesome if you're looking for pinks (assuming you want natural/untreated as mine are)?

Could you use light pink sapphire melee instead of pink diamond? That may make it easier to find a setting.

ETA: I would also use pink stones with rose gold and white stones with white gold, but I wouldn't mix the white stones with rose gold.
