    I’ve been thinking about it and think I’m going to ask David to make me a baby bezel stacker ring for my right hand. I could enjoy it more and stack it with other bands!

    This is the pic I sent to him. I have some skinny diamond bands that would look great with it!

    I wish this diamond would get here...They couldn’t process payment through PayPal until after New Years Day and then it took them another day to process it. I haven’t received any updates and I’m dying to get it. I hope it’s not dark..and that it looks mostly white with a silvery undertone. I’m actually thinking of it like a fancy colored stone. If it’s pretty I’ll just bezel it and stack it..unless I truly love it and then will have to see what I can do with that size diamond..I was thinking maybe those vintage looking illusion settings..

    I love those illusion settings!! I'd like to see the settings you're considering as I'm debating the same thing right now. =)2 I can't wait for you to get your stone either!!

    Worrying is like paying interest on a debt that never comes due. Better to wait in anticipation, there'll be plenty of time to be disappointed if that ends up being the case, no need to start practicing now my dear.

    I saw this vintage setting in 14k white gold. This is the only photo of it. It would contrast with the M and also make the whole head a little bigger. I can still stack it I think..I also like that it’s square..I may at one point want to take it out and trade it in at James Allen towards another diamond and it wouldn’t kill the bezel setting if I do that. The other option is a four prong mock bezel so it can be popped out. This is in case I live with it and decide it’s a nope. I’m already doing two projects with David so he shouldn’t mind if I don’t do the bezel. I told him I was unsure anyway. I can have a local jeweler set this. The setting is $350! Honest opinion @mrs-b

    I love it, and I'd do it myself if I wanted to enlarge the look of a specific diamond. I actually love illusion settings; I think most of them are very successful, and I think the one you linked to is fabulous.

    Omg..I didn’t even get it and I’m back to the bezel. It’s a small stone so a baby bezel it is..:roll2:

    Yes..It’s taking so long! I had to call them yesterday..They said it was going to ship on the 9th but we’re going to Maryland on Friday..and I wouldn’t be home to sign for it. I had them send it to the local FedEx for pickup. I’m hoping to get it on Monday!

    Haha! I hope it’s not dark..I’m still trying to decide how to set it. I may do a bezel but I may want to pop it out if I live with it and not enjoy it so I can replace it..I may do a mock bezel with prongs but tiny ones because the stone is small. It will definitely be stacked..so that’s why I was thinking a bezel. Any suggestions are very welcome!
