    i love the peachy pink tourmaline so much but am stumped as to how to set it. i love anything art deco but can’t see it with this pink/peach stone. not sure if white gold or rose/yellow gold would be better.

    any suggestions would be very appreciated! :kiss2:

    Take a look at these. I would definitely prefer rose gold; I&R's rose gold isn't that pink. I think a green halo would be even lovelier than using white diamond.

    https://www.etsy.com/listing/253214...d-green-emerald?ref=shop_home_active_76&frs=1
    https://www.etsy.com/listing/294160...ond-double-halo?ref=shop_home_active_73&frs=1
    https://www.etsy.com/listing/253087...l-green-emerald?ref=shop_home_active_74&frs=1

    But this one, I might do in white gold. The diamonds are arranged geometrically and look like a picture frame for the main stone. https://www.etsy.com/listing/650703...unt-round-stone?ref=shop_home_active_24&frs=1

    Ok @fantapanda
    You ready for some spam? Ha!
    I don’t know your style - so maybe some of these will help you decide at least what you don’t want. Just as important, right?=)2

    @Rfisher dang, next time I need help I'm tagging you! Wonderful. I like #1 for being really bold & interesting, but that last one looks so good with that stone too.

    Really in awe of @Rfisher skills

    @fantapanda
    What size is the stone? Are you thinking ready made or custom setting? Would the stone fit in any of the ivy and rose settings?

    Here is a ring @2Neezers made with a setting from Aurosi Jewelers on Etsy. I thought of this one because this garnet is 8.6 mm and your beautiful tourmaline seems to be a similar size

    Thanks for sharing my ring @Sungura =)2. Here is the link to the setting from Aurosi Jewels:
    https://www.etsy.com/listing/551057115/14k-floral-engagement-ring-white-gold?ref=yr_purchases
    He adjusted it to fit my stone and I think the design works well for the stone size and it looks better in person than in their drawings.
    There are so many possibilities for settings for a stone in this size range @fantapanda , that it can be overwhelming. I usually first narrow it down by whether or not I want a halo, then figure out a budget and go from there. Your stone is beautiful and I can’t wait to see what you choose.

    @icy_jade - it’s about 8.9mm across. stock setting would be good but i’m not opposed to a custom one although if custom, it’ll likely be DK as i don’t have a local jeweler to set it for me.

    @Sungura - great eye and i do like the setting! and @2Neezers - your garnet is a gorgeous color! i do like aurosi jewels and you’re right about the choices. all of the stones i have seem to be round and i’m getting a little burnt out looking at settings for a round stone. definitely want to halo it. all the settings i’ve seen are less than $1k tbh but i’m not sure how much a custom setting would run.

    i’ve decided to set it just like this and now the side stone hunt begins. other than yvonne on etsy, does anyone have any suggestions on who would be a good source for side stones? preferably something less than $500 for a pair. the tourmaline i have is 8.9mm. thanks!

    Depends on what gemstone you want for the sidestones. I would suggest Dana of Mastercut Gems or rare gem lover, who used to be a PS'er before starting up in the trade. Can someone provide her IG handle? I've only been able to find her on YouTube.

    Cushion? Round? What gem? Kosnar on Etsy has a few pairs. Pairs can be tricky, might involve some time or maybe see if someone will cut them for you?

    I'm so partial to tourmaline (because its my birth stone). Yours is a bee-you-tee- full color.
    You could bezel in rose gold and remainder in white gold

    I like the setting you’ve picked out. Keep us updated on your sidestone search.
