Hey guys/gals

Firstly, thank you for the support in selecting a diamond! I've now got a 2.35 RB coming in a few days and I need to get looking for a setting :D She's size Q ring (8 1/4)

My lady friend likes solitaires that look elegant, but at the same time, she wants/loves side diamonds.. And not in a separate diamond design but pave or small diamonds running down the shank.

I've been looking around and found a few that I like, including a Coast one, and one I saw at a local jeweler.

I've attached pix below of the coast one and the one I liked at the jeweler.

The question I have is has anyone seen a dupe/clone of the one attached with a love heart (looks like an M) running in the middle with stones on the side pave-style?).. I like that one coz her name starts with M so it fits nicely. I just want to see what I can find similar to those styles..

Would be nice to stick to something with an M or a heart in the middle like the style below, but it's not a deal-breaker. I generally like ones that taper in (like my example from the jeweler below) and some cathedral's coz they have space usually a "v" under the diamond :)

The one i liked at the jeweler; quoted $2170 ($1575 USD) for white gold.

Coast one I like too:

I like both Coast settings. The first one better. The first setting looks too high.

i have to agree, that first one from the jeweler looks really high. I could just see it catching on everything! I like the coast ones and i like the simplicity of the second one. Have you considered a custom setting so you can incorporate the "M" specifically to your liking?

I like the first Coast setting. FWIW -- I have a Coast setting and I love it.

Tangent: My Coast setting is really high and the comments on this post about the Coast settings listed here being too high make me wonder if Coast makes a lot of high settings? They look so very pretty on the hand ... but ... to be honest ... they are a bit of a pain in the a$$ for everyday wear.
