Thank you. :D


That is stunning! I’m uncertain about using a blue halo for mine but I can’t deny how gorgeous it could be. :mrgreen:


Agreed! I wish I could see it in person because I’m really thinking about using it over the straight yellow gold. :love:



I love your M colored AVC! Have you set it yet?
Btw, I totally agree with you about the low colored diamonds. Not only are they a great bang for your buck but they are stunningly beautiful. That gorgeous antique looking warmth really gives me all the feels. :love:
Thank-You & yes I dropped it off at my Jewellers around 2 weeks ago I settled for this design except for a Platinum Head/Bezel it's being custom made to my surprise!

Hopefully in another week or two it should be done, I can't wait!

I am more excited to see your completed project though!

Ooh, I'm in the exact same boat as you, @elle_71125. I purchased mrs_b's 1.93ct R color AVC recently and have been obsessing over what setting to put it in for weeks. Definitely had the same ideas as you too (CvB Clara, Cora, any sort of interesting metal / carved halos really). I've even been sketching some of my own ideas, may want to go custom...

Today, I had some time and stopped by ID Jewelry and was toying with the idea of a halo-ed 3 Stone like these (setting on the left has half moon sides, the one on the right has haloed trapezoids):

These are definitely more on the modern side, moreso than I was imagining for an AVC. Going to bring my stone with me on Wednesday to see how they look together though!

You’re AVC is gorgeous! I absolutely love the warmth in it and I’m so happy you got it so we can all see its new home (I just love when things stay in the PS family).

Those are beautiful settings. :kiss2: I actually posted something similar as an option for my AVC. Guess we have similar tastes.:mrgreen: I’m leaning towards something with a gold(ish) faux bezel to bring out the O color in mine.

ETA: I played with the pics a bit to add in your diamond.

Nice mockups! I was doing that on Monday night too haha. I went back to the store today with my diamond and it didn't look as good as I would have hoped when sitting in those rings; all the white gold made the R color look a little washed out.

That being said, I found another halo setting in mixed WG/RG with bigger stones in the halo, almost like a small cluster style... and now it's currently waiting to be set. Pics to come later this week (hopefully)!

And to contribute.. I was also considering the CvB Susan style halo, but would replace the onyx with either french cut diamonds or maybe emeralds or sapphires?

I had a similar issue when looking at bands. My center is probably L M N and anything too bright made the poor thing look dingy. I love the emeralds (see below) BUT I will caution you, you can't steam or ultrasound them or expose them to heat. I have had the ring 5 years and am having to get them re oiled. Sapphire might be a better more durable option. If your heart is set on green go lab created.

Elle, Amy says they have only 18k yellow or 18k rose, but it's kind of peachy. Think I'm chickening out anyway...
Bummer. I think that damn peach gold was the one thing I had actually settled on. :lol: Oh well...off to see if there’s any developments on your ring.
