    This is a .51ct OEC; it's currently unset while I'm debating it's next home (sell? Reset?) but this was its previous incarnation.

    OP, yours is lovely and looks great on your hand. Congrats!

    Thanks everyone :love: and you all have such pretty rings! Maybe in the future I'd love a small marquise like in one of the first posts :love:

    Everyone's rings are so pretty!

    I wanted to add a picture of my .48 solitaire in a swirl gold setting. This was actually the center stone of my mom's engagement ring. I didn't want it to look like a traditional engagement setting since I wear it on my right hand sometimes; so I had it set in this unusual swirl setting.

    Excuse the wrinkly hand, it's cold out.

    Lovely idea, gadgetgirl, in transforming something beautiful and making it your own. I have my mom's erring and I don't what to do w/it yet. I'll wait until the time is right.

    BTD I love how your ring came out, it's a fabulous cut and looks wonderful! Congrats!!

    Oakleaf I adore your wedding set! Is that a semi-bezel? Do you know who the designer is? It's so elegant!

    We decided on the 0.37ct H VS2 AVC! I'm currently agonizing on how to have it set lol. Here's a cell-phone pic of it in the temporary holder with my vintage wedding band. Ring size 5.75

    I love the AVC! Please make a thread when you set it! And if you have any more pictures of it loose, I would love to see!

    Dainty thank you! I love it too. We ordered an AVR at the same time, a 0.43, to compare the two cuts. Even though the AVR has a bigger spread, it's the AVC I keep reaching for over and over. Can't even pinpoint exactly what it is about it that I like so much better, because they are both gorgeous. Just something about it I guess! :love:

    Here's the AVC's page with ASET etc. Its dimensions are 4.15 × 4.29 × 2.8 mm. I'll try to take some more photos before we send it back to be set :D http://www.goodoldgold.com/diamond/F46-0960/


    This is the AVR in case anyone is interested in the size:hand ratio, it's a 0.43ct G VS1:

    Thank you so much for this thread! I love my gems/diamonds in the 4.5-6.5mm range, so I always love seeing setting ideas for stones in the .5 carat range.

    Thank you! I bought it at a family jewelry store in a mall. It originally had a four prong setting, but I replaced it with a north/south half bezel. It is a also a cathedral setting. I only see metal when I look at the profile, but I use my hands a lot at my job and my ring gets banged on stuff pretty often. I like know my diamond is protected. The bezel is not as obvious as the picture makes it seem. I have it paired with a flat, 2mm platinum band.

    I have several .5 and lower rings. First is my original wedding set. The center is somewhere between a .20 and .25.

    005_1.jpg

    Next my three stone ring with a .48 center.

    009.jpg

    This next ring I picked up on ebay for $440 it has a .50 center

    Then my heart shaped diamond also a .50

    Here are a couple of my under .5 carat rings. 14K flower ring: .33 I VS2 with purplish red natural ruby halo. It's circa 1965 and the center stone has 8 prongs. The setting has white gold directly under the diamond, I think it gives the diamond a more silvery appearance than had it been open. The rubies are bright and lively, something the picture doesn't capture.

    Antique rose gold Belcher-style ring with old mine cut. I forgot the specs, but offhand I'd say the diamond is .30 or .35, H VS1

    Reviving the thread because I thought these little guys would be more at home here. ;))

    Pretty ring! Your center stone is showing a lot of great pastel colors.

    ^Beautiful! A nice thing also about small diamond rings is enjoyment of wearing several of them on adjacent fingers, giving a blingy look without overkill.

    Just FYI A rose cut can give you more bang for the buck because there's no pavillion it has more spread. This ring has found a new home with another PSer but I figured I'd show you on a photo for reference. It's .45 cts on a size 3.75 ring

    Thanks! My EC diamond was from ID Jewelry. My setting was from Lord of Gem Rings on ebay. I special ordered it so that the head was the correct size. I also requested that the melee diamond quality be upgraded. I appreciate your compliment. I love my ring, but it is probably too delicate. I don't plan to have it like that forever--I may upgrade or sell it some day. For now, I just enjoy it with lots of care! :wavey:
