That pear looks frickin huge next to that marquise - I would never have guessed the diff in weight.

Thanks!!!!

i''m thinking of keeping it in this setting instead of mounting it in a pendant... it is currently a size 4, so i wore it around with a band-aid wrapped around the bottom. I love how sci-fi it looks!

But do you see the color difference? the pear is quite shallow, so the yellow from the mount may be affecting the appearance? The marquise has strong fluorescence, so it actually faces up whiter than my D colored rb.

I don''t see any yellow! I love it at first glance, the pear looks bigger than the marquise

Wow, that pear is beautiful!
I think it would be more flattering to the gorgeous stone to set it in a pendant. The top of the ring setting kind of takes away from the stone, IMO, because there''s so much metal. Just my .02, though. Enjoy!

Wow, that is very pretty!
I think I would keep it as a ring, but it depends,..... do you think you would wear it more often as a pendant or ring?

i think i'd wear it more as a ring because i usually only wear my topaz & diamond pendant, but i am concerned that the setting is too bulky and takes away from the diamond.

the ring is 14kt white gold, but not rhodium plated. Maybe i should just plate it and see if it looks different?

FK, you do know how to shop. BTW, the pear (from what I can tell) does appear to be picking up a hint of yellow from that setting. I would put it in a pendant.
I do love it though.

I think it is a really cool setting and it really plays with the shape of a pear. If anything, I would make it white gold. I vote for keep it a ring, esp. if you have one you wear most often.. but then, I am more of a ring girl...

Question:

should i keep it in the ring, or mount it in a pendant?

Oh, I love it. I love the setting and I would not change a THING! It has so much presence and looks huge in that setting. It looks fabulous on your hand, too. I don''t think the diamond looks yellow in the pictures at all, and even if it does in real life I think that''s just what happens in yellow gold. Yellow gold is coming back and it''s a great style for yellow gold. I agree, I thought the pear was as big as the marquise, maybe even bigger. I love that marquise ring, too! You have a very nice collection.

OH FK!! I ADORE your pear...I know I''m biased, because I''m a pear-wearer, but your''s is beautiful! I agree with lumpkin - looks great in the setting and I don''t see any hint of yellow seeping through. Just gorgeous! Someday, please teach me how to find such great deals!

here is a close up w/ loupe. I don''t think i''ve ever seen a pear cut like this... it has an X in the center like a princess, but i couldn''t get it to show!

I vote for changing the setting b/c it would bother me that this was an engagement ring that someone else wore... but that''s just me.

Thanks guys! i love being able to share my jewelry with people... all my friends think i''m nuts.


So i''m leaning towards keeping it in the setting right now, and getting the white gold rhodium dipped. However, that may change if I find another setting i like. It doesn''t bother me that it belonged to someone. Most antique jewelry once belonged to someone, and I''m not superstitious when it comes to that.

My other option is to set it in a pendant, but the more i think about it, the less i want to do that because i can''t see it! This is the third time i''ve changed my mind away from a pendant. it probably isn''t meant to be...

Anyone have any suggestion as far as ring designs? I don''t want halos, and i don''t want a regular solitaire. That doesn''t leave me with very many options, huh?

I LOVE this diamond! I cannot believe there is no bow-tie, and the shape is just gorgeous. soooooo floating on cloud 9 right now. i want matching earrings now!!!

It is a badly kept secret that shallow fancies don''t show bow tie as often as the once of average depth.
Which doesn''t mean you weren''t lucky! This one looks so nice...I would have never guessed it is just 50% deep from those pictures. If this diamond were to be sold by the numbers - can you imagine how much worse than the reality the description would have sounded?
Yiks!

Congrats for the lucky diamond hunt!




Anyway, I like the setting allot. It ain''t e-ring-ish to me. And I wonder if one could carve at it a bit without compromising the integrity of the ring. If it is not a tension setting, maybe making the band lighter and bridging the gap between the two sides would help. At least this is what I would ask a jeweler first thing.

My 2c.
