Hello,
I am considering a 2 carat oval center with side stones. I am leaning towards baguettes but am not 100%. Does anyone have any center ovals with side stones they could share pictures of?


If I do stick with baguettes what would be the best size to go with the center, it’s 9.5 x 7.2? What size would be the best aesthetically. I want them to be noticeable but complements to the center?

Thanks

Traps and half moons kinda look similar. Half moons are just more rounded. Since you are considering bagettes you may prefer traps since they are more angles il_794xN.2827803625_n9ja.jpg il_794xN.2780123966_c8zx.jpg

I will be watching!! I have an oval (original ering) that I’ve been thinking about resetting. Is it Harry Winston that has a classic oval five-stone? Half-moons and baguettes down the shoulder-shank?

I also love a reverse taper with French cuts!

Pear side stones with the right proportions also get a lot of love around here.

Here are two ideas, and I’ll grab a couple more!

Im not a fan of pears (I like symmetry!) myself but they do look nice with ovals. I think the epaulettes make the oval looks rounded or something.

Found specs on this on I found 1.30 ct oval w/ 1.00 sides s-l400.jpg

Wow that looks huge for 1.3. I have a 1.3 at the moment, and it looks nothing like this size, the model must have tiny hands! I have a bad case of DSS and my 1.3 is in a halo!

This is wow. Looking at the pics I think I prefer the look of a side that tapers off so the center still stands out rather than the sides that are more substantial.

Ikr. I had to look at the specs again to.make sure...that would n the hand looks waaaaay larger than a 1.3ct. but least you can see the half moons even if the specs are off. Haha
