I have a diamond ring that I have had for a while and I wanted to set the diamond east west. My concern is the durability of an east west setting. Will a faceted girdle help at all? If I find a setting that has a lower profile, I'm guessing that's the term, would that be safer? The diamond ring is from the early 90s but it's very sentimental and I still wear it from time to time because it reminds me of a specific time in my life that I'm very thankful for but it looks like a ring from the 90s. So I would like to reset the diamonds in the ring, if I could do it safely. Thank you for any insight you may have.
