I am not usually indecisive when it comes to settings, however, I am torn about how to set my 9mm JW Rubellite. This is my first JW stone and the first to be set, and about time too as it was purchased years ago!

On one hand, I believe it deserves a grand setting, and have thought of a convertible ring-pendant design. However, it is so grand that I may only wear it as a ring or pendant occasionally. The ring will be worn on my left hand middle finger.

The other option is to set it in a simpler air gap halo ring setting with no millgrain, to be worn on my LH ring finger.

Which would you choose, or opt for something different?

Here are my setting inspirations.

Thanks for everyone's help in advance.

Not gonna lie, I really love that first flower ring setting. :kiss2:
So do I, and this stone is worthy of such a grand setting IMHO.

I originally planned for it to be part of an interchangeable pendant bail project, however, I have changed my mind.

The pendant is likely to be a slider rather than one with a bail.

I think they changed their name to be David Michael now, but their work continues to be mind blowing and amazing. Sadly they are $$$$, but yes they are #goals for all flower rings.

And I agree a flower design would be amazing with this stone!

Grand and glam is winning! :bigsmile:

I have asked my contact whether it would be possible to make a brooch setting that can take the flower head, just a simple one with leaves and branches with no stones, hopefully, it will not add too much to the overall cost of the project.

I decided against making a bangle setting to go with the flower head, as I am unlikely to wear CS on my wrist, and shall stick with white metal and diamonds/simulants etc...
