    @MissGotRocks Thank you! I’m so relieved that I didn’t mess up again! Three strikes to get it right! :lol:

    Oh wow @Mamabean, it looks fabulous!!! :love::love::love: Your diamond always looked pretty but it has come alive in this setting; it looks bigger and more sparkly. It turned out beautifully! Good call on your part. :clap: Are you happy with the milgrain? It looks perfect in the pics. Too bad about the aquamarine, darn that pesky window.

    Thank you @Tekate! I just don’t know what to put in it...I’m debating about putting an unmentionable in it until I can find the perfect stone. David said he could then pop it out and he can set what I find. I’m thinking of maybe an OEC diamond...in a lower color...but not sure how it would look with the H color baguettes.

    Thank you @junebug! I’m really happy with the milgrain. It’s very fine in person. She sparkles more in this setting because more light gets to her...and she appears bigger now.
    I have no idea what to put in the previous setting now. I would love a gemstone but don’t know anything about how to avoid a window..and I also don’t want to spend too much...;-)

    There are a list of gemstone vendors in the Colored Stones forum @Mambean, you could browse around and see if you find anything. Most of the stones are pretty well cut. Finding a gemstone for an existing setting can be a bit tricky sometimes because a lot of gemstones are fairly deep and might not fit in the setting.

    Thank you @junebug17! I never thought about the depth...I also don’t want to spend too much either...I just would like a pretty stone without a window..but it doesn’t have to be perfect. I like lighter colored gemstones better..which I know is the least desirable...so that’s one thing in my favor!

    Thank you @marcy! She shrunk in that last setting...but this is how she looked in the setting before that because it also had six prongs. That setting was too high though...This height is perfect for me. It does look bigger..:appl:

    Thank you @missy! Now I’m looking at diamond OEC’s....Haha...but probably not for a while. I’m sticking an unmentionable in it until I find one. I will probably do a warmer one..:roll2:

    What's your favorite color mama bean? Maybe you could find a gem in your favorite color? I could see a pretty pink spinel in there...:geek2:
    I really love your new ring, the 6 prongs really make a difference. :love:

    Thank you @bling_dream19 My favorite colors are blue and pink. The setting is shallow so I have to be careful with the depth. I need an 8mm with a depth no deeper than 5.08mm. That will be hard...:confused2:

    Side by side shot shows more difference than I expected. Great choice to do so
    Setting is beautiful for your lovely stone. Looks fantastic on you!

    It looks AMAZING on the hand!
    Isn’t amazing how a setting can change the diamond? You made a great decision doing this.
    I think a colored gem is perfect for the old setting since color has a way to not be swallowed by the white metal and white diamonds.
    It’s going to be a while but this is making me excited to start on my setting that will be SO similar!

    Thank you @JrJ! I agree about setting it with a gemstone. It will take me a while to find a gemstone with a shallower depth...That setting is looooowww...;)2 I’m going to set it with a blue colored unmentionable to see what color to get...
    I can’t wait to see yours when you decide to do it!
