Hi All--

I was just wondering if there is a specific name for this. Can anyone help? I have heard "twisted" but that seems to pertain to the ring and not particularly the setting itself. I don''t think that it''s that common, but I have come across it on the web, but can''t remember where it was. Thanks!

NIck

The thing to keep in mind with setting a P/C like this is the stone must be perfectly square and the setter must do a perfect job positioning and finishing prongs or it will look crooked.

This is very very true...I had a princess soliaire pendant that was a little off square in the l to w ratio and not realizing this, I had it set "on point" the way you''re describing. It looked AWFUL and crooked. I hated it and had it immediately reset the regular way.

This point cannot be overstated!!!!!

Diagonally set like this one.

In Europe diagonally set is common.

Also, Down the finger - East/West is common too. In fact I have set as many across the finger as North/South - down the finger.

Why not?
