Since October I''ve had some melee fall out of my yellow gold setting. I took it to the jeweler and asked about fixing the design problems with the dirt getting under the melee and replacing what fell out and decided it was more maintenance than I wanted to deal with. My jeweler suggested making earrings out of the setting (not this week, LOL!) so with that in mind, I decided to have my .80 rb re-set.
The new setting is a solitaire, but it is really heavy -- lots of gold. It''s in the style of the tension settings but with a peg head. It may not be very clear in these photos, but it is two tone, with the white gold on the shank of the ring. I''m wearing it with my 13 stone wedding band.
