Round OEC in an Asscher setting?

Has anyone seen a round OEC in an asscher setting combo before? Is this possible?

I really love the asscher shape and its cropped corners, but also love the round simplicity and big facets of an OEC. I also really like the look of double claw prongs and thought that they could help fill out the space between the stone and the corners.

I put together a quick photoshop mockup made from three different rings, but if I gave this to a designer would this be physically possible for them to make? What do you guys think?

Try David Klass or CVB designs.
Yes - I love their styles! I was definitely planning on contacting them. The claw prongs are actually from Caysie's Chloe setting. :) Thank you!

I've not seen anything like that before. The double claw prongs are a little jarring for me because they say "modern" to me and the rest of the ring is "vintage" -- but if you like it that's all that matters. I don't see why construction would be a problem.

ETA I think maybe a double milgrain bezel inside would be more cohesive than the prongs IMO.

Yes, definitely. I like your mock-up. It reminds me of one of Singlestone's Colette settings. Please keep us updated on your setting journey; I'd love to see it!

I have pictures of antique rings with double claw prongs, so I think the double claws are perfect for that design! I am certain it can be made. I think both CVB and DK have done multiple bezel style settings.

The Single Stone setting was the first I thought of too! Probably because I have been obsessing over it since I had the chance to try it on a few weeks ago! It is beautiful and unique!

I've gawked over that one too.

And tried it on. Ari's in shape though. He could have totally tackled me if I'd run out with it. Dang it all.

Haha I can see how the combo would be jarring, but I really do like it. :) Thank you for the double milgrain bezel suggestion - I'll look into that.

Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. That setting is absolutely GORGEOUS. Second-guessing myself over here.
