Love the inspiration heart ring and the bezel offers a great solution to getting a bigger look (you mentioned 1.5ct in an ideal world) plus it will emphasise the lovely shape. Admittedly I might have been inspired myself and having a sneaky look on JA after catching sight of this thread! Looking forward to seeing it!

I can't wait to see what you end up with. I have a .7 heart-shaped diamond in a pendant and I don't like it that way at all. I really want to get it put into a ring - definitely a bezel or halo.

Oooo I hadn't seen the pictures of the actual stone before wink's post- it is such a pretty shape!! I'm a fan of chubby hearts too!

Would you mind sharing the dimensions of the stone? I've been eyeing a few little hearts lately and I'm wondering at what point they become too small for the shape to be seen easily...

I love your inspiration pics! Reminds me of all the things that originally made me love jewelry! Absolutely delicious!

Sure, it is: 4.65 x 5.51 x 3.23

Thank you!!! The ones I'm looking at are a tiny bit (like 0.3mm) smaller so hopefully the shape will still show well like yours!

Exciting! I am also enjoying the idea of tiny stacking rings. I bought 2 hammered silver bands and also a turquoise band (petit point/snake eyes style) to stack. I would love to get a .50 carat CBI diamond either to wear as a solitaire, and then later set in 3, 5 stone ring. Someday! I was actually making some progress in saving my pennies, but found out last night might be later than sooner. My mother is finally moving out of her home, and needs cash to pay her transfer tax stamps as well as first month downpayment on an apartment, transition costs. She says that she will pay me back when she sells her house, but well let's just say in situations like this before she has not paid people back... I will find out more details later today.

Don't you hate when that happens? Same with my mother...

Yes. But at the same time I am relieved that she is moving to a more tenable financial situation. Once she transitions, even if all she does is spend her ssn and proceeds from house with no interest accrued, she should have enough to live on for another 7 years. No idea what will happen after that, but will deal with that when the time comes.

Believe me, I get it.

This little heart came last night and I couldn't be happier!!! I am thrilled with it and it makes my heart sing and will remind me to take care of me. IMG_2369.JPG IMG_2370.JPG IMG_2373.JPG

It is for my right hand, but I can't take pics with it there lol. (Please excuse my eczema-- been terrible this year, and I have clear band aid on it. It won't go away this year.)

It's so sweet and beautiful! I love both the width of the bezel and the sentiment of looking after yourself that it's to remind you of.

That heart is just so sweet. I've never been a huge fan of heart shaped diamonds but your little cutie has completely changed my mind! It really is lovely. :love: I think the bezel works beautifully to highlight the shape, awesome choice!
