hi, I wanted to share my red zircon in its new home, since I had received much helpful advice here on what to do with it. After weighing everything and looking at various gold colors and setting, this is what I chose - I am really happy with how it came out, I feel like the zircon is protected and that the bezel didn't negatively impact its performance. The first photo in the box is how I rec'vd it from Jeff White, just as a point of comparison to the photos of the set stone. Thanks again for the earlier advice and for letting me share the final product.

ETA: oops, forgot to say that it is set in rose gold!

Thank you megeve, makingthegrade, rock your socks & mercoledi for the nice thoughts!
Mochi, if I could take great photos like you I would post more! I am living in Hong Kong this year, the jeweler here set it for me - I am lucky to have them since they are patient and will customize anything.

You''re right - trouble with a capital ''T''! But it costs so much less to do it here that I am trying to ''set'' what I can before we move home so I don''t kick myself later [that''s my rationalization at least!] You and all your gorgeous stones should go on holiday here!

Gorgeous ring, babysteps! I love sparkly red stones, and the setting is beautiful and classic. Well done!

More pictures in different lighting would be great!

And last one, a close up in regular afternoon light from window. This is an ''indoor'' baby - it duds out in direct sunlight. But, it was like that unset, too, and honestly most of the time I would wear it, I would be indoors.
Thanks again for taking a look!
