Here she is. H SI1 circular brilliant. Totally eye clean. Thanks to all who helped especially @Dee*Jay who looked at it in person for me :). So kind.

So crisp and white! Looks much sharper and whiter in person. So hard to take pics of diamonds. She’s small but mighty at .60. Thinking of doing a 3 stone with bezel setting. Need to find 2 matching smaller stones and where and how to start. Would love a DK setting.

Very very pretty! I'd check in with Ivy & Rose, Old World Diamonds, Jewels by Grace for side stones

On instagram...

Thanks, @Cerulean. Guess I should have asked Ilya at Ivy and Rose for 2 other stones to match this. What size do you think would be ideal?

Hmm - size is tricky. Do you like it when there is a larger or smaller size difference in the center / vs side stones?

For example, I like smaller side stones on me. I wear a 7.5, and have a 1.3 carat center, and ~0.25 (each) sides. If you like this ratio, you'd probably like 0.12-0.15 sides. DK could probably easily source OECs this size! Just make sure you get a similar, high color (H/I)...which can be a little rarer.

My center is an E and the sides are slightly warmer (I'd guess one is an F, the other a G), but because they are smaller it doesn't really matter much to me. I am also crazy color sensitive, but the small difference here doesn't bug me and I find it charming.

Here are some 3-stone ring threads - I would look and figure out your ratio preferences...a lot of people like 1:2:1 (which is that classic size ratio for Tiffany's 3 stones)

Thanks, @Cerulean. Will check them out and see what would work best ;-).

I looked at your links, @Cerulean. Thanks for sharing. I think I don’t want the sides too big or too small. I tried to put my filigree ring with a 0.25 ct OEC (my very first taste of OEC) and I think I like that size for side stones.

My avatar ring is .25/.5/.25. I mocked up some PowerPoint slides using circles to get a sense of proportion when deciding - very simple but helpful!

Love that proportion and your setting. Did you purchase all three stones together? Where did you get your setting, if I may ask? I am torn between a milgrain bezel or open setting. Thank you.
