I need some setting inspiration. Im considering pulling the trigger on a 2 ct old mine cut and I'm lacking ideas on how I want to set it. I was originally planning on upgrading a current ring that I have and setting the new stone in a similar setting, but after weeks of constant flaky inquires; I'm thinking of just keeping it and upgrading anyways. So I obviously don't want 2 stones in similar settings. Now I'm going to have to dream up something entirely different if I want to purchase this other stone. I want something simple. I'm thinking maybe a platinum bezel but I'm not finding anything I'm loving on pinterest or by any designers. I'm not going to post the stone because I haven't purchased it yet. Please show off your old mine or antique solitaires.

I have an old mine cut solitaire.
Mine may be more ornate than what you have in mind.
It was made by Caleb Meyer Studio in Philadelphia with a stone I purchased from another jeweler that was going out of business.

CMS was gracious in setting an outside stone, which he does on a case by case basis.

The stone is a 1.26 ct. L, VS 2
The setting is hand forged 18 Ct. yellow gold scroll design with a platinum bezel.
I opted to pass on milgraining the bezel, though I can have him do it any time.
I love the design and overall balance of the ring. It never spins and I can wear any band with it bc of the platform design. It’s fun changing up bands with this ring.
His finishing and detail work are meticulous.
I hope this helps. Good luck finding inspiration for your ring. There are so many great options! I love OMC stones and yours looks beautiful!

a quick sneak peak of mine. Not allowed to wear it yet as it’s a birthday gift to myself and I don’t turn 40 til October. The setting is second hand from @Mayk and is Erika Winters Laurel
OH MY GOD we’re going to need details!!!!!!
