It has an eye-visible inclusion in the centre of it so I was thinking of bezelling it to better hide the inclusion. It is with Sally right now! I was thinking 18k YG and no halo due to the cost. A simple bezel with cutwork? Maybe a single diamond in the shank on either side? I am not good with design and appreciate your help!
Although this is a neat idea, I'd choose to just get the ring in black rhodium, especially if you're going to be on a budget. I think that black diamonds or black spinel won't be that expensive, but the workmanship from Sally will be more expensive than without a halo.I’d halo it with black diamonds or black spinel.
Do you already have an unset ruby? If not, obtaining a matching ruby is the most expensive option.Thank you for coming up with such amazing suggestions so quickly! Setting it with other coloured gems is tempting but I already have my YR spess and ruby ring which I love. Also, as you pointed out Voce, a halo of any sort of gems would add a lot to the cost. I love engraving, and rubies! I love the white gold pear spess pendant you posted Elle - I have drooled over that one a lot
A bypass ring could work too with a ruby!
That is so funny garnet girl! I don't think of football at all but can see why you would after seeing those photos! I really do think the emerald would look great with it too. Tough call, but I think I would wear the blue/orange combo more.I'm the oddball here and I love the look of it with your emerald, especially if it looks as glowy with some blue in it as the photos you posted show.
It would look like two glowy candies and the oval and the pear are both elongated but different enough to give a visual appeal.
When I see blue and orange
together I just think of football, but thats what I get by being raised by one sports enthused father lol
Btw, @ilovegemstones I just adore African violets and yours is just oh so happy!! Beautiful flowers (: she can be mines sista sista

Your african violet is gorgeous and I love it in that pot! Here is my mini violet which is blooming again after not blooming for a good year!
