Emerald has always been one of my fav cuts. Need a big one though (as you listed). With that said, surprisingly after seeing the pics, I voted pear!

GL and we insist on pics when you are done!! ;-)

Whew, for just a sec I thought you were suggesting trillion sides :shock: but then I realized it was the prongs you were referencing! :lol:


Laurenk, if you want a halo, by all means do a halo! I think a halo provides a pretty frame around any antique cut stone.

I had to hunt for a picture, but I adore this pear halo ring by Caysie van Bebber (Love Affair Diamonds) ...

Tough choice! Both are gorgeous. Have you tried on an emerald cut? I guess I'd choose based on which silhouette you prefer and which one makes your heart pitter patter. If it were me I'd choose the antique pear, but alas, this is not my ring, lol!

Not to add to the thread jack....but Cinnamonstick I am dying to see your new ring!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't hold out on us!! :bigsmile:

Pear. It is such a 'stand alone' stone it does not need a halo. Two baguettes would be stunning.

Laurenk,
Are you going with the pear? I agree a pear can be a stand alone with baguettes and look stunning!!

I must also say WOW to the last picture you just shared Laurenk! Love it! Subtle "underhalo"....gives a little visual interest to the pear, but doesn't overpower it. To me, halos absolutely emphasize a stone and can make it look so beautiful....but there's a part of me that worries about how popular they are right now. A subtle underhalo may be a great way to show off the diamond while staying a little unique.

:)

Would love more pear setting inspiration!! I'm still not 100% decided but I feel my heart pulling me to the pear - so I'm looking at VC emilya, three stone with side pears (with or without halo), emilya with plain shank, pear with side baguettes. Not sure why this is soooo hard! :)

Congratulations on deciding!!!!!

I still can't get over how insanely gorgeous that pear is....there's something very, very special about it.

I am so excited for you! Congrats on making the decision, too! Here is a pic of a ring that I just think is so pretty. Perhaps it can provide some help to you in deciding a setting design. It is a James Allen three stone modified with halo setting.

The pear is such a find, you can always find a decent emerald but NOT an antique pear!
