    Does anyone have or know of pics of the semi bezel with a colored stone? I've been fantasizing about a yellow gold with an 8mm cs. I'll never buy an RB that big but I think a CS with yellow gold would make an amazing RHR.

    Thanks poppins! Glad you found the pictures helpful!

    Thanks ericad! Yes, it is the small channel set band. I love your set! I've been eyeing a few other Sholdt bands of course. :naughty:

    Does anyone have an asscher in the the Fremont setting. I like the tapered band and claw setting but cannot find one anywhere.

    If not an Asscher perhaps a radiant or princess cut? I don't want the semit bezel so am keen to see this as I like the streamline look.

    Thank you!

    This is the closest I've found, from the Sholdt official website.

    Just realized I never added my ring to this thread. Also, I found another rectangular stone in a Fremont, this time a 1 carat radiant from Eric Trabert Goldsmith's website.

    Amazing Sholdt settings and stones everyone! When searching for diamonds, it was relatively easy to narrow down the suppliers. However, I was limited with the actual setting and did not do much research into various vendors, especially given my time constraint.

    While I'm extremely happy with the way the setting came out, how does Sholdt compare? Is this more of a boutique name that is not recognized?

    Also, not to go too far off topic, I've read that a 4 prong design is inherently weaker. Does this warrant real concern?

    Not to show off but to document the Sholdt Minnie, as I could not find many examples, hopefully this will help the next person in their search:

    Your Minnie is just beautiful and showcases the diamond fabulously! :love:

    To answer your question, I don’t think 4-prong settings are necessarily ‘weaker’; rather, I think they may just be viewed as less secure in holding the diamond because if one prong is bent or broken, you’re more likely to lose the diamond whereas if there are 6 or 8 prongs, it’d take damaging more prongs to lose the stone, if that makes sense. I think it just comes down to personal preference, good design, and insurance - either way. :wavey:

    Thanks for the kind words! The design looks inherently weaker/less secure...but questioning whether or not folks had real life examples of a bent prong and having lost a diamond or just speculation? :read:

    @elle_chris I've got a question about your Sholdt-- it's been 10 years, and is your diamond still in this setting? I'd love to hear your perspective on this setting after wearing it for years! After looking for my style, I'm really liking the semi-bezel and would love your thoughts! I've checked out your thread and it was very helpful! I'd love to see any other pictures of you wearing or stacking it- Thanks for the update in advance!!

    Thank you! Sholdt was so lovely to work with, and I think they knocked it out of the park! :kiss2:
