Firegoddess, if you notice, Diamondlil''s new beautiful ring also has 5 prongs (instead of 3).
Yes, Cfluist, I actually asked for it that way. Although Quest said it would not be any problem having only 3 prongs, I have a fear of looking down and the diamond being gone!
The prongs are so tiny (to the naked eye), that I don''t think the 5 prongs is distracting at all. I wasn''t sure I''d like the point not being covered with the traditional "V" tip (fear again), but they assured me that with the halo setting around it, the diamond and its tip is protected and I really did not need a "V".

Bagpuss, the pear shape is so perfect for a pendant. I love, love, love it!!!

They are pretty and I think the shape is very well suited to a dangle style.

I''ve just loved seeing everyone else''s pear shaped diamonds. Pleasure overload!

Bagpuss I LOVE your earrings, so beautiful! Is there a thread with more information and pictures you can direct me to? Did you build them with GOG''s assistance and already know what design you wanted or ?

Thanks for posting the link Belle.

I''ve been spring cleaning the house, digging the garden and planting out my bedding plants, so I haven''t had much time for the computer lately. I''m having a break tonight, so I thought I''d try and catch up on all the gossip!

Just putting the new setting in the pear thread...!

1.5 ct D VS2 pear diamond, platinum setting
I'll get back with the specs of the melee once I find out from the jeweler...
ETA: 2 point melee in halo and on rings, F/G color, SI1.

Oh, FireGodess - that's a beautiful setting not to mention a beautiful centre stone. The fine band really makes the pear look huge. Some halo pave can be so big that it overpowers the centre stone, but yours looks just right to my mind - big enough to look like 'proper' diamonds and not just chips, but small enough to be a perfect frame.
I also like the size and positioning of the prongs holding the pear. I also like the way it looks with the matching band - it doesn't overpwer the look of the original ring but rather enhances it.
Can you tell how much I like it???


Is there a thread about it somewhere? I'd love to see a side profile. Pretty please.

Bagpuss,

Thanks for your sweet post! I''m glad you like it and I definitely agree about the size of the melee...I tried to emphasize to the jeweler that I wanted the stones to enhance the pear, not overpower it...yet still look distinct.

The thread on it is here.

I just gave the e-ring back to get tweaked (the pear was set tilted) and when I get it back I want to try my hand at some different photos.

I finally got a hold of a camera (lost mine). The pictures arent so great and they dont really do the ring any justice.

Thanks for all the sweet compliments. I just have to say that all of the pears on this thread are just beautiful. Ok here are the specs

1.38
K or M (one AGS appraiser appraised it as an M and another AGS as a K)
I2
culet is small
girdle thick to slightly thick faceted
polish good
symmetry good
I forgot the measurements
the baguettes are .08 and of "quality2" based on the AGS grading

I was really dissapointed with the specs when I first got the appraisal back, but I love the ring and my fiance still feels he got a great deal on the ring

Now that I got my hands onn a camera, I''ve gone nuts. Here are some more pictures
