Long overdue update on my B.G. re-cut and reset.

Here are the results of my recut. I was planning to have a three stone bezel setting made but then I came across this antique setting on ebay and I fell in love. I've very happy with the results! Stone stats are 1.60 ct. VS2, L (strong blue flourescence). My stone probably looks small on my short, fat fingers. There are so many tiny hands on Pricescope!

Photos were taken at an amusement park while I was waiting for my guys to get off a ride. ;-) Had to keep myself occupied somehow! I was sitting below a tree and sunlight was filtering thru the leaves beautifully. I couldn't resist! :) The last one is my wedding set. I didn't want it to feel left out. It's my original engagement center, reset into the baguette setting. I think the center is approx. .60 ct., VS2, G-H.. The three stone was my mother-in-law's. She passed away a few years ago and my father-in-law gave me her beautiful ring last Christmas. The spacer between the two rings is my original wedding ring. It's not the blingiest thing on Pricescope but I am very much enjoying my reset and the addition of the three stone that means so much to me.

Thanks all! I love how the re-cut turned out! That was money well spent. :)

Here are a couple of pics of the stone pre-recut and in it's old setting. Pics aren't great. Sorry.

Between the re-cut and the new setting, the improvement is amazing!

Pretty :appl: !! Your RB looks quite at home in that antique setting, how lucky to find a setting that fits the stone so perfectly! So tempted to have a loose stone re cut, was it an easy process on your end?

Rings too tight IMO. Just my 2 cents...
