GIA said she is an N, Very Light Brown color. I am actually considering setting her in an alloy that is more peach colored(a mix of YG and RG). Any color metal other than green gold, look good with my skin tone, so thought this might be an interesting way to go-she is somewhat color shifty as well it seems.

I think that would look beautiful!

@Morenita21 Now to try and decide how to set her :) I would love to set her E-W, but am worried I may not love it as much set that way. I have an emerald cut with step cut shields set E-W and do love it, but think that my N-S rings may look better on my hand. Time will tell I guess, I have pondered just doing a temp setting so I can get used to her color.

What size is the finger you will wear her on? I never thought e-w would look good on me but it does! It gives me maximum finger coverage and I’ve had so many compliments. Keep in mind I have short chubby fingers too. Size US7 is my ring finger size. If you’re not 100% sure, do a simple setting for now. Mine was very intricate and Alex Park of Parks Fine Group made it for me. He’s the best!

I particularly like Jessica McCormack’s style of paying homage to vintage styles. I could definitely see your stone in this type of setting set e-w with black rhodium around the stone and rich rose or yellow gold on the shank.

@Morenita21 it will be sized at a 5.75-6.

Alex did a wonderful job on your ring-it is gorgeous and I am sure you get lots of compliments!

Jessica McCormack has some lovely jewelry-love the EC!!!

This Hex ring(please ignore the terrible photo and winter hands)is 18x12ish on the halo, so I could probably do a little something extra around the moval. 1821E4C7-F687-494E-AE95-FDE2379F8F9A.jpeg
