I did not know that my mom set out to have her classic 3 stone reset........... I sure wish I would have known. She kept it secret from me in case I would talk her out of it. I personally am not boiled over with the reset...(but I didn''t let her know that). I get the feeling she is not in love with it either. I think it is too "chunky". If only I had known she wanted this to be done, I would have had her send it to Leon or have kept it in the classic 3 stone which I love!

Profile... personally, I think she had it set too high. I would have had it more flush set to protect the stone more...

It is beautiful though. I''m sure she''s happy to have more bling and finger coverage.

Well, I''m a fan of simple, classic styles, and while the new ring is definitely blingy, it doesn''t stop my heart like the before does!

Like you, I prefer the original and think the new one is a bit chunky...I think a more delicate halo would have been fabulous! oh well. It is definitely blingy and has tons of finger coverage!!

With some tweeking of the prongs and some shaving down of the gallery of the second setting it could really be gorgeous... but I, myself a solitaire classic type of girl. the first setting was so fab! And you are so right.... her pear would have looked knockout in a Leon claw prong setting, with maybe a very VERY delicate halo.....

I agree I think it definately needs some tweeking. In this case Less is more. I invision a gorgeous setting from Leon with halos around the Pear sidestones ONLY!
BTW... her pear is 1.50 cts and the sidestones are approx. .4Octs each I am guessing.

I can''t decide which version I prefer, honestly. I like the simplicity of the original, but I love the extra bling of the new setting. Gee, what a dilemma.

I prefer the first one also but hopefully she loves it. It definitely has the bling factor

Wow - that turned into some ring! I too prefer the simplicity of the first ring but if she''s happy with it, that''s all that matters!

Personally I like the first setting better. Personally her center stone looks smaller to me in the new setting than it did in the first one.

Then again I am not an ultra blingy person so...

all of those stones the side ones included are so stunning, the new setting takes away from it. I mean if she wants show stopping BLINNG then sweet. I do love that classic setting tho. i hope she gets what she wants!
