How would you set a heart shaped colored stone?

I'm wondering how you would choose to set a heart shaped stone?

I don't need anymore rings, so I'd probably opt for a necklace. I'd especially consider a bezel set with a milgrain edge.

Explain, or add pictures, of what you'd consider for a heart stone for yourself.

What color is it? I want a heart shaped hot pink Spinel necklace personally.

Definitely a pendant - I prefer heart shaped stones in pendants (usually). The setting would depend on the size of the stone.

Do you suppose they'd let me wear that in prison? Because I'd have to rob a bank to set it like that beauty!! :love:

Uppy, I am a law-abiding citizen, but I have the same urges... Hope fellow PS-ers will visit us there! :bigsmile:

I have a small heart-shaped spinel ring, but it is so small, I am not posting it here.

That pendant is WOW! :love:

I would personally think of setting one in a double bezel pendant (dependent on if the stone is happy to take it, of course)

I can't get Photoshop to run but I wanted to make a mock up.

Wow, if the color is anything like that IRL... That's going to be one stunning pendant!

I'm really getting behind the idea of a tiny diamond halo with a slight airline; a modified version of the Leon design.

But I'm still attracted to the idea of a BGD Barbara type millegrained bezel. Hmmmm.....

I've only found two ideas out there. The bezeled stone would need a finer bezel, and the pink stone would be gorgeous with a tiny yellow diamond halo.
