Hi everyone! Brand new member here!

I have a ring that was passed down to me that I want to reset before proposing to my girlfriend. It is a 3/4ct. 6 prong engagement ring, with 1/4ct accents in the band.

The problem: my girlfriend has always told her mother that the only style she likes are cushion cut rings or those with the cushion halo.

My question to you all: can I take these stones and craft them to fit the "cushion" styling? I have attached pictures of the ring! I understand that I would need to buy additional stones & a new setting. I just want to know if it is possible (and not over the top outrageous in price).

THANKS SO MUCH!

Do you have to use that ring?
If you were not to, would it hurt your families feelings?
If you reset it, what's your budget for the setting?

Thanks for your reply!! My family might be a little upset. I was hoping to use the stones to save a little money as well. I don't really have a budget in mind since I really don't know how much it would cost to do something like this. I would say a few thousand or so? Probably no more than 5k. Not sure what else to do with the ring if I don't salvage the stones :doh:

Here's another example of a cushion shaped halo with a round brilliant center stone. I like the rounded edges of this cushion halo better than the squared edges of gemvara setting.

Victor's is a beautiful example, but it will depend on your budget. If it's out of budget, we can help find one that is similar.

My, oh my!!! That is exactly what I would like to do with the stones! I would say I can throw in probably no more than 5k to the mix, would that be enough to create something like this? Or... am I way, way off?

Thanks for your help!! :)
