Right after Christmas, I dreamed up a setting for my new diamond I purchased preloved.

The diamond is possibly transitional or European (not OEC) cut, with a highish crown but shallow pavilion. Diameter is 7.12 mm. I couldn't measure the depth while set, so asked if they'd weigh it when they had it unset. Because of how shallow it was, I guessed it would weigh 1.18 ct. Loose, it actually weighed 1.27 ct. It faces more like a 1.35 ct.

The setting I bought it in was super temporary as it appeared it was made for an oval stone. And set way too high. So I figured since I didn't love the setting, I'd make a new one.

My original post about my thoughts was in rocky talky.

I did end up having them turn the basket 90 degrees, and it looks super!!

Here are too many photos.

Really nice! Sometimes it's hard to picture how things will turn out but you must have a good eye!

Thanks you guys. My DH is telling everyone that I "designed" my ring. I kinda laugh cuz I just picked a shank that I liked and a crown that I liked from Stuller's online catalog and had my jeweler put it together. The only thing I "designed" was ordering the shank in Rose gold and asking them to turn the crown. But DH thinks it is amazing. And it is. I love it.

Sadly, I now feel the need to get another really tiny half-eternity diamond band to wear with it.
