What would (did) you do with a previous stone?

I know there are lots of things you CAN do, but I would love to hear (or see!) what you've done with prior stones.

I have a GIA graded mrb that is 1.02,I, VS2 (previous lifetime, prior marriage; divorced) that I had put into a bezel pendant and I wear it on a thin Tiffany chain.

This place has me wondering if I should pop it into a ring. Maybe a vintage setting. Or a cluster. Something Art Deco, maybe?

I am currently consumed with designing the setting of my e-ring, so I don't have energy to spend on it right now. (Plus, after that I need to decide on a wedding band - which shouldn't be so hard.)

I am not sentimental about the stone at all. I would've sold it but you take such a loss on diamonds, it seems.

I almost wish I could trade it for two .50 carat studs or something. I do think it would make a nice right hand ring. I like it as a pendant but I don't wear it much. And apparently this place makes you itchy to make other jewelry happen. Lol.

Hi I want sparkle,
After a jeweler cracked my original EC (yes diamonds do crack), I ended up with a replacement stone to which I am not sentimentally attached. I'm working with GOG on a new "engagement ring", even though I've been married for 13 years. Ha!

Anyway, I debated selling the replacement, but like you I felt Id just lose money. I thought about a pendant too, but because I'm a ring kinda girl, I decided on a RHR for my middle finger. I didn't have a nice ring for that finger. I love it. You can see it here:

Hope this helps!

Gorgeous RHR! I poked around and didn't see your new leftie ring yet - so maybe it is still in the works? :)
Can't wait to see what you did with that one, too.

I can't believe they cracked your ring! I guess it is bound to happen to someone. Geez!

Yep, lefty is still in the works. A few more weeks for the setting and it will be done. Woo hoo!

Wellllll...I haven't done it YET, but DH and I are planning to get a stone to match my original e-ring (a 1.08ct early modern brilliant) and have the 2 stones set into diamond studs with custom halo jackets. This will probably be done around the time of our anniversary next year! These will be my end all, be all studs. Currently, I have 0.80tcw studs, so this will be a BIG upgrade!
