I would go with spinels or sapphires. Both are tough stones and both offer extra sparkle! Knowing how deeply colored that zircon is I would do medium to hot pink, but that's just me.
This design reminds me of a similar DK ring (that @elle_71125 owns). If you wanted to get a feel for this design set north-south.

Ok I LOVE this one I think more than the east west! So its between the top right one in the collage, I'll call it a half bezel diamond and this one, I'll call a full diamond bezel north south. My heart leans towards this one! Thank you @CHRISTY-DANIELLE :kiss2::love::wavey::appl:

Of course you can manipulate the size of the diamonds in the halo and the size of the sides stones. And decide if you want milgrain or not. But this will make for an easy starting point for DK since they made the original. ;-)

Ok folks I'm back and working currently with DK on this beautiful zircon.
I am now leaning in the pendant direction. I am scared about chipping it somehow in a ring. And my husband is excited to see a colored stone pendant on me.

What do you all think of it?
I still want to do a mermaid ring or pendant someday.

Lovely proportions! Your zircon is going to really stand out!

Hi @bling_dream19 ! I'm so excited that you are setting this and with DK (my fave)! It's cool that you got married in December...zircon is a December birthstone! This would make a great 1 year anniversary ring. That stone is too pretty not to be able see it on yourself. Obviously, I'm voting ring :)

I love bezel settings anyway, but I definetly think it's the better choice for a zircon. Zircons can get chipped. A bezel would offer more protection. If you really want prongs consider a faux bezel so the girdle is still protected from blows.

I always pictured this stone set east/ west. But ovals give you lots of options. Even a scalloped halo!

Look forward to seeing what you choose!

Christy,

Could you tell me the source of the top left mount? That is beautiful.

Thank you.
