Hi everyone!

I'm looking for an inexpensive halo setting for an AVC. It can't be a custom piece, it has to be a stock setting. What do you think, would this look okay with an AVC in your opinion? Would it fit the 'feel' of an AVC (i.e. vintage and antique-y)? It's pictured here with a round, but I did confirm that it can take a cushion as well. Thanks for your thoughts! :wavey:

I think it would look gorgeous!, especially with the milgrain work to tie in the "antiqueness" of the avc

Are you sure you want another halo? I think it's an okay setting but... I guess I'd prefer something really different from your beautiful halo AV ring.

Thank you for weighing in, everyone!

Diamondseeker, I do like the Vatche Grace as well. It's sooo pretty!

Gypsy, yes, I definitely want another halo, haha. It won't be a huge AVC, so I think it'll need the size boost! :naughty:

Okay halo it is!

Have you looked at Dimend Scaasi? I can't get their site up to load right now, but it's worth a look for you!

Too similar to your current one but I adore this setting. http://www.pearlmansjewelers.com/jewelry-designers/beverley-k-jewelry/rings/102PP1/
Sigh...those are both just gorgeous!!! :love: Uppy has that second one for her e-ring if I'm not mistaken?

You're right.

Okay so... THIS is my favorite Vatche halo and if you are looking for a halo setting for an AVC, this would be my first choice. http://dvatche.com/photos/product/full/137_0.png

Very happy you like it susimoo... If I wanted another halo I would totally sick an OEC or a transitional in there. It's one of my favorites as well.

I am now doing the reset it or save the money for an upgrade dilemma in my head!
:lol:

However, given the recent price increase even adding the cost of this setting onto the purchase price of my RB, I still couldn't buy my RB in todays market!!! :-o

So serious thinking going on over here. Thank you, Gypsy. And sorry Laila for the threadjack. :saint:

MY fave is the vatche antique as well (excel tends to have the best price on that setting). I think an AVC would look amazing in that, give you the size boost you want, and be a little different from your ering!

I love the other Vatche setting as well, but I would have them add milgrain!!! I would also show GOG the price from Excel on the setting and see if they would match it. Much easier to deal with one jeweler when possible!
