by the_mother_thing » Feb 10, 2019 Now that it appears I’ve finally found my unicorn asscher-ish diamond, the journey for setting ideas & planning can begin, so I figured I’d start a new thread for this phase of the project. Previous thread is here if someone cares to read the backstory, see videos, etc. Specs: WEIGHT: 1.77ct COLOR: F MEASUREMENTS: 7.12 x 6.87 x 4.23 mm TOTAL DEPTH: 61.6% TABLE SIZE: 79.0% GIRDLE: Ex Thin to Thick Ring size 7.25 The two settings that I have been eyeing for awhile for an asscher (before I even found this diamond) are below. I know I’m going to be torn on something slightly Art Deco/antique-y feeling and something more modern/clean. If I can strike a balance between the two without the central diamond getting overwhelmed/lost or the ring looking too busy, I would be thrilled! ETA: an open gallery is a must so I can enjoy the pavilion’s fire show in side viewing. CvB ‘Greta’ (I’d probably look to have tab prongs or a semi-bezel incorporated): Sholdt R445-1D: Some suggested in the previous thread that a tension setting would be a good option to consider, but most of the tension styles I’ve seen have been kind of bulky/masculine IMO, but I may not be looking at the right styles so please share examples. I’m not opposed, but don’t want it to feel/be bulky (even the Sholdt above almost feels a smidge over the line, but I know from experience their pieces are more ‘delicate’ in person than pics appear. Thoughts, suggestions, ideas? Please post pics, links, etc.
