Hi friends! I just got this beautiful garnet from Finewater Gems! It is 7.5 mm round rubelite garnet, hearts and arrows cut. It sparkles beautifully in the sun! It's a little dark in the shade. 20201020_125132.jpg 20201020_125119.jpg 20201020_162239.jpg

My husband said it looks like Dorothy's slippers the first time he saw the garnet!
So do you think it will perform better in a halo setting or a 6 prong solitaire. I have both currently, bought both preloved.
The halo is a stunning DK ring that holds a light pink tourmaline. The tourmaline is beautiful but a bit light for my liking. I actually bought the garnet to go into this setting. 20200729_142634.jpg 20200729_142705.jpg
Or put the garnet into this BG classic 6 prong setting, which is empty currently. 20201023_153613.jpg 20201023_153618.jpg 20201023_160104.jpg
The 6 prong might need a new head to accommodate the larger gem and it has to be sized up for my finger.
Which setting do you think is best for this garnet? And do you think this garnet is a winner? Thanks everyone!

Halo looks better than solitaire imo. I haven't worn my solitaire stones often.
