My mother passed away 4 years ago and I inherited her Oval 1.51 carat vs-2, color H engagement ring. It is set in 14 kt gold. It measures 9.43 x 6.14 x 3.84. The band is getting thin and is a bit tight on my finger. I have been thinking about having it remounted but I can't decide on a setting. I wear this ring with my wedding band and anniversary bands but I also wear it solo on my right hand. I am interested in any ideas you may have. I am also interested in seeing some east west setting ideas.

You don’t mention your ring size, but an East-West style would give great finger coverage while allowing you to stack the ring with other bands.
I don’t have any suggestions otherwise, but it is a beautiful ring and the sentiment is priceless.

Thank you, yes the sentiment is priceless. I think my size is 6.5 -7. I like the idea of good finger coverage with the East-West style. I think I want to keep the setting simple. I don't want it to look too much like an engagement ring and I want something that will make the diamond the main attraction.

I second East-West setting, a thick bezel and a chunky plain shank, to be worn as a RHR on its own.

To throw another idea into the pot, how about setting it East-West in an open bangle, like this one that belongs to another PSer?

I am leaning towards this bangle idea for my mum's MRB myself, with flat ends so that they do not interfere too much when I am working with the laptop and no millgrain.

I went east/west and very please with the results. Half-bezel so very simple and easy to wear :)

I am so glad I found Pricescope! That looks stunning! So much better seeing the ring up close and on a finger! when I started looking 2 years ago there was nothing in stock where I live for me to see in person. I did go to a local jeweler that does in house CAD and he did a half bezel and a prong design for me. I definitely prefer the half bezel after seeing yours. I think I will contact him and request a chunkier band update to the half bezel CAD. Do you have any more pictures from different angles? I would love to see more.

That is a good idea and I love the style of that bracelet. However, I very rarely wear bracelets since I retired. I have several very nice ones and half the time I forget to put one on even when the DH and I are going out somewhere special. I wear my rings every day and want something easy and comfortable especially since this was my mother's diamond.

MRB - Modern Round Brilliant.

Gorgeous diamond by the way, and I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I love the idea of an east-west set half bezel. It will look very stand alone & be comfortable to wear.

I love that
I really love wide bands !!
Thank you @Daisys and Diamonds :)

@LissaB - I posted quite a few pics over at my post sharing the ring making process here -> https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/completed-my-2ct-semi-bezel-ring-❤️.253472/#post-4654055

I opted for a half-bezel to let more light through and I didn't want anything too ostentatious given the size of the stone. I'm very happy with it and like that it's low profile for comfortable wear.
