Love all three. Just saw this on DK Instagram. Wonderful picture.

Thanks :) To answer your question, the Prince Cut is a variation on an emerald cut which features additional scissor facets on the pavillion steps. It has some similarities to the Ashoka and also the emerald crisscut. Here is the GIA plot diagram for a Prince Cut:

There's a thread on some of the similar styles of cut that I started a couple of years ago here:


That is the cut on my e ring stones! and boy, do they catch the light! Of course, we could not afford diamonds, mine is *cough*cz....that is a stunning ring!

I had my 1.4 ct EGL L Si1 transitional cut reset into an emerald target halo setting. So excited and wanted to share!

Wow! Beautiful! The colour of those emeralds is stunning, and with your transitional cut its a really eyecatching look. :kiss2:

Ive been thinking about a step cut with an emerald halo, its such a beautiful look. But one thing that has made me hesitate is how to keep the diamond clean enough for maximum performance whilst protecting the emeralds. I usually use an ultrasonic but they are not safe to use with emeralds. How are you planning to care for yours?

Thank you!

I know what you mean. I love my ultrasonic! I was planning to clean this one with mild dishsoap and an old toothbrush and just hope I can keep it clean enough. I'll definitely be taking it off more, especially if I'm doing anything messy, using lotion, etc.

The eightstar is actually set in a bead set band, not channel set.
What are your ring engagement shopping tips? I can see a ring online for a fantastic deal. A ring shopper for the first time and I saw if there was something I could know before I went to see it in person. Something will be useful! I am looking at crystals for engagement ring i have an urgent need for them.

I joined the 3 stone craze!
GIA 2.9 E si1 on size 4.75 finger. Sides are .31 each.
As much as I love my Emilya halo and will go back to it eventually—Old habits are hard to break and Reset-itis struck again. Lol.

As much as I love 3 stones (and I DO!!!) I miss Ms. Emilya... Please promise me you won't rehome her and she will be back. She was perfect for your E.

@nala - I feel as tho you're swinging between 2 perfect settings now! You cannot POSSIBLY go wrong with either of these! I love this three stone and its proportions - and I love the Emilya also! Two fabulous options!

Never! The Emilya is my holy grail! But she is very high maintenance meaning that now that I’m stuck at home, I couldn’t feel comfortable just wearing her around! It’s like she is sooo precious and beautiful that I didn’t like going out for jogs, sticking my hands in my pockets while on a winter walk—little things on the day-to-day that made me worry that could cause her damage! Since I didn’t go thru VC for the purchase, I didn’t want to damage her bc he wouldn’t repair her for me. So. I’m sacrificing until I go back to work bc at that point—if anything happens, it will be well worth it!

@nala, that is exactly what I thought as well. This 3-stone setting is blingtastic but a little more casual and easier to wear than your Emilya. That is why I'm resetting my 1.8 ct solitaire into a 3-stone for the more casual days. My larger pave solitaire would be better when I return to the work at the office and don't have to cook/clean etc.

Nice! Did you ever go to the Tustin jeweler? Are you working with him?

My next ring will be a 3 stone for sure! Do you already have a SMTB thread for this beauty? We need WAY more pictures. Where did you get this three stone setting? I'd love to see it from the side. Congrats! It's gorgeous!

Hi! No thread due to the fact that I have way too many resets! Ha! But thanks for asking. I’ll post more pics in the 3 stone thread!

I will watch for it there! ...but seriously. I'm pretty sure no one would be sad to see more pics of your gorgeous stone in its own thread!
