Cool! But I don''t think you should call it "Octo" spess. Anything Octo has bad connotations these days. How about boring ole "8 sided spess?" Hm.


"Stop sign spess?"

Thanks Linda and TL!

TL-I had to chuckle with the idea it needs a name change!

I was hoping to use this setting with it, but it is too deep to fit!

Linda-I am kinda bummed about it too! Maybe the setting can be opened up a little bit?

It is also kind of an expensive setting for this stone!

What percentage do you ladies like to spend on the setting vs. the stone?

Thanks LD! The setting is awesome IRL!!! I had inquired about having one custom made and it was going to be at least 11K to start off and then they said they didn't want to make it for me because of all the labor involved. So when I saw this setting at an high end estate jewelers(made by an in house jeweler) I jumped on it. But for the life of me I can't remember the jewelers name and can't find the receipt!

ha ha ha, here goes T-Gal with another question thread.


SC. With my pads, I purchased expensive settings for them. For cheaper stones, I wouldn''t pay for a really expensive setting. That is just me though.

I hope your setting can be opened up. I am in love with that setting and stone.

Linda-no doubt I to spend much more on setting expensive stones, but when it comes to less expensive ones-I have a tough finding less expensive setting ideas I like. It is so tough!

Oh no SCN - I was really hoping you were going to say that you''d got the setting and it was available at X! Oh well!

You asked about setting cost -v- stone cost? If I love the stone (irrespective of how much it''s cost) I will put it in an expensive setting. If I''m so-so about the stone, then a cheap Ebay setting will do! I would hesitate to put a stone I wasn''t really in love with in an expensive setting. So for me, it''s about love and not cost!

SCN, I''m soooo glad you got that! I''d been on the fence about it because I was over my gemstone budget ay the time (during the BE pad incident), but now I see I should have jumped on it! It''s gorgeous, and I really hope some rework can be done to that setting! It really looks perfect for it!

Very pretty stone. It looks perfect with that setting. Like LTP said, I hope it can be re-worked.

It looks gorgeous! I was wondering about the potential darkness factor, too. But it looks to be not much of an issue. So pretty!

Such a pretty spess!


I really hope you can fit it in that ring, because they are perfect for each other.
