    I think it is totally gorgeous!!!!! But yes, a tad $$$. Then again 2ctw, esp in plat, I consider a darn good deal. Find out how big the basket is... if you think the setting is expensive, I would worry about a heart attack when its time to purchase the stone!!!

    Thanks for your replies.

    After much back and forth my bf called me the other day and told me that I could have whatever kind of ering I wanted and I can pick it out. I was elated. I am not trying to put him in the poor house though. I loooove this setting so much! I originally loved some of the Tacori settings, but $6k for a setting is not in our budget unless I want a stoneless ring.

    I am thinking of a 1-2.25 or 1.5 if I am oh so lucky Asscher cut for the center.

    Feedback?

    Thanks!

    I abbbbbbsolutely love it! My bf can afford it, although if I could get the price down that would help with my being able to get a nicer center. I would be cool w/ white gold over plat.

    There might be a problem with that ring...

    Judging from the weight (between 1 and 1.5 Tcw), those trillions are about 7mm wide (on each side). That allot more than a 1-1.2 carat asscher (what I remember the proposed center is).
    Since the grades of the large sidestones are not mentioned, it is hard to tell how good the price is: most of the 3.5k is just the cost of the sidestones (probably around 2k). The rest of the setting looks like it has been assembled from pre-made parts - not the most expensive or precise option.

    There's nothing inherently wrong with the look, but this is rather unsual: just wanted to make sure the detail is clear.

    A very fine handmade setting might cost just as much even if the sidestones are set in proportion; since that would mean allot less "tcw" and allot more craftmanship. So... there is no "right choice" moneywise.

    It would be easier to decide details with a center stone at hand. [​IMG]

    I could see the price being justifiable if it were in platinum.. It is pretty though.[​IMG]

    yuck! i see what you mean :P thanks for posting that. The trills are .30 each. Does that help out any? Most likely with a 1.01 carat center.

    .3 cts sides sounds reasonable. But with them, the price of the setting should go down handsomly as well. In all honesty, I would not go for that model - even in a blurry picture it looks unfinished [​IMG]
