As I mentioned in my Rockytalky post here, I spent this Saturday morning in Los Angeles with Ari and Patty at Singlestone having the time of my life.

While I searched for my own setting, I got to see a vintage setting that Ari has been holding onto, waiting for the perfect stone. I have never seen something so delicate and lovely, and I didn''t want to leave it there!

I''m not sure what used to live there, but this beauty seems to be eternally waiting for a rose cut diamond somewhere in the 12.5mm x 9.5mm range. I would guess the right colored stone would be to die for, but can''t stop dreaming of the right enormous rose cut... I think it would be too shallow for any other cut diamond.

It''s one of the most delicate vintage settings I have ever seen. The platinum wire is fashioned into a lotus or water lily.... isn''t it gorgeous?

And the last pic of that incredible basket.

Does anyone have a large rose cut diamond I could borrow? Pretty please?

Isn''t it, Pixley? I was there for my own happy reasons, but couldn''t bear to watch that setting going back into the mounting box. I started to wildly dream up reasons it was a good idea to buy it and wait for a colored stone to come along....

Wow, I love that setting. It''s so delicate and dainty. You could also put a cabochon stone in it...

Lovely! If only it was a bit smaller and round; I just got a blue tourmaline that would look great in there.

Hi everyone!

I only wish that setting was mine. I was at Singlestone to get my OEC set, but as hard as I tried to stretch my OEC from 8mm long to 12.5mm long and oval, and shallow, it wouldn''t stretch and so this setting wouldn''t work for me.

I just wanted everyone to see it, and kind of like the puppy you see at the pound that you can''t have, I want to make sure that if someone has a long shallow colored stone or rose cut diamond that they get to chance to fall in love too.

I guess this is like how the first time I met my husband I thought, "Wow! He is great! I should introduce him to my friend." Which I did, and they did date, and it took awhile for me to realize DUH! I could date him too!

Nooo, you should get it
That setting has to be in the hands of a ps'er! You can figure out what to do with it later
Definitely a Rose Cut or OEC. It will look fabulous with a non white diamond too.

Wow. I''d get something custom cut for that baby!!!! (Likely something cheap until I could afford something pricier.)

i wonder if it''s possible to wear it as is, without a diamond ( i know that''s borderline blasphemy, please don''t ban me...
)
