I've finally chosen a jeweler to make a custom setting for a stone that I picked out a while back. Here's the little beauty I bought off Ebay - 1.05ct I/SI2 transitional cut



The custom setting I went with is a half eternity prong set pave. I requested an integrated head (vs. a peg head) reminiscent of the WF Legato. I was inspired by LynnB's beautiful ring.

I finally received the first wax photos.
I personally feel that the prongs could be a little thinner to better match the delicate look of the scallop. However, the jeweler assures me that the final product will be thinner than in the pictures.
In no way am I an expert on this, so I would appreciate any comments, critique, advice at this point before the ring is cast.
Thanks!

I would keep the wax the way it is, it look fantastic!! The jeweler is right that the prongs will look much thinner when it is finished. In addition, prongs can always be thinned out later on, so it doesn't hurt to keep them the way they are now.

ETA: that stone is gorgeous by the way!!

Just received one with a diamond in it for size reference. Doesn''t seem to be the transitional.

Thanks for the reassurance.
I am probably just experiencing separation anxiety.

We have been emailing back and forth, and the jeweler seems very confident that the final product will have a more refined and elegant look.

I''ve read only excellent reviews about this jeweler, so I''m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best at this point!
I''m sure the ring will look very different once the sidestones are mounted.
Can''t wait for my bling to be ready!
