Hi guys! As some of you know, I like the idea of setting my RB with some step-cut sidestones, as inspired by Bebe''s gorgeous cushion with step-cut traps. I just thought it would be fun to post some pics of different looks on here - let me know what you think, and also post pics of your rings, or other rings you like with this look. Here are a couple that I like. This one is from the Natalie K website:

Here''s one from teh Gottlieb & Sons website - it has step-cut half moon sidestones (I think they are called Cadillac Cut)?

I will have to post more later - my son just woke up from his nap - I''m looking forward to seeing your pics!

I''m obsessed with the cadilac cut...yes that is what they are called. I love half moons and to me this is like the half moon alternative.

Could we somehow generate a picture of the first setting with Cadillac cuts? I prefer the cleaner settings, it shows off your gorgeous center stone more.

Okay, I think I was a little negative on your last thread on this topic. But seeing these has made me change my mind!

Had no idea step cut traps were called Cadillac Cuts ? Or is there a difference between the Caddy's and traps?
Why the name Cadillac - does it have something do to with the Cadillac emblem? Sorry for being so dumb here!!

Edit - never mind! I read EL's post wrong. step cut half moons - traps. (bangs head on wall)

I finally took a few pics of my ring, 2.17 RB with side traps, .88 tcw. I did the best I could for pics, but like most they didn''t turn out the best. Here goes....

Anyway, that gives you kind of an idea! VG, you definitely have to keep us in the loop on what you decide! :)

I haven''t done SMTR thread yet, I''ll start one here in a few minutes.

I am not the biggest fan of half moons, but I think the cadillac cuts are absolutley gorgeous!

No idea why they are called that. I like them though. I have a Tacori setting and they make a few with cadilac cut side stone so I got to look at the up close. Very Pretty!

for example I''ll post a tacori pic. This center stone has a very small halo though but I think you get the idea:

Emeraldlover, thanks for posting the pic of that Tacori setting - there is someone on PS who has that one who posted pics a while bank, and I LOVE it - that''s where I first saw those cadillac cuts.

Luthergirl, I love your pics too - your thread is awesome!

I''ve had a really busy couple of days, but I need to dig up some more pics & add them to the thread - maybe tomorrow ...

Lordy, that is gorgeous. I wish, wish, wish, I had looked at the step cut half moons when Leon and I were playing
with sidestones for my cushion. I was so against half moons, I guess he didn''t even dare bring up the Cadillac Cuts!
