Soooo....I bought a new AVC from GOG because it fit the specs I had been looking for which were approx .75-1ct, + fluoro, AVC, right price, good specs, doesn't have the same shape as my other one. But now I am having a tough time finding the right setting. I bought it for a RHR and after many (waaaayyyyy too many) hours of searching for the right setting, I've finally decided to do what I should have done in the first place - ask for help from PSers.

My only real sticking points are that I don't want it to look TOO engagement ring-ish and I would like it to have some component of rose gold. I did inquire about a setting from DBL because my husband was in love with it (this one: http://www.diamondsbylauren.com/index.php/jewelry/loose-colorless-diamond-62ct-j-si1-cushion-cut-gia-fantastic-sparkle-r4916) but they do not accept outside stones for their settings.

Here is the link from GOG for my stone: http://www.goodoldgold.com/diamond/11119/

I'm going to post pictures of the diamond on my right hand, next to my wedding set, my wedding set alone, and the diamond in some settings I tried on at the store. Here we go...

So,I guess my 2cent (or maybe a 1.05) with how to make a good RHR is:
-Choose a setting with a low profile
-Choose a setting that provides a lot of finger coverage--like a 3stone or a 5 stone ring
-Incorporate colored gemstones or a setting that has a lot of design components with the metal itself

camillerose has a gorgeous ring made by Maevona:

Why don't you show GOG the picture from DBL and ask them how much it would cost to do that halo, and while you are at it get a quote from ERD as well. I like the cushion shaped halo in either white or pink the best!!!!

@briolette - great find!! i love that setting - thanks so much for that link! (and if camillerose is reading - i love your setting :D ) i just briefly looked at the MaeVona website and their settings are fantastic. i will definitely be checking them out with DH when he gets home. also, i agree with everything you said. one setting i really liked for a 3 stone was this one by WF: http://www.whiteflash.com/engagement-rings/three-stone/3-stone-butterflies-diamond-engagement-ring-230.htm.... i like it because i think it would go well with my ering but i don't think i can do 6 prongs with this stone.

@pintobean - thanks! DH does have great taste - i feel so lucky to have found a man who is not only REALLY awesome but also REALLY loves diamonds like i do. :appl: :appl: :appl:

@arkieb1 - you are right, i definitely should do that. the only reason i didn't do that right away was because i was actually trying to avoid the cost of doing something custom. but i guess it doesn't hurt to at least ask!

All these would be cute modified to your cushion I thought think. And rose gold.(though maybe not the halos. Though if you changed it to green instead of rubies that would be very cool.

I like Simon G and Beverley K for vintage style settings for right hand rings. I think you have to have a halo for the ring to balance with your gorgeous e-ring (and I am biased in my love for your e-ring!), so something like this but made in cushion shape would be nice.

Plus, GOG carries BK, which is good. And you can choose whatever metal you want, too.

sorry i didn't respond to these posts earlier - had to work all weekend :(

@ Niel - thanks for those pics! great ideas!

@ bluu76 - so funny you mentioned simon G because i just got a catalog from a local jeweler and was eying up some of those settings. i do really like them and will be checking out their full website today now that i have a day off :)

@ diamondseeker2006 - you are so sweet! thank you! we must have very similar taste because i absolutely love that setting from beverly K! :appl: i can't even believe i totally forgot about beverly K in my search (doh!). i wonder if there is a way to get a side profile view...i'll have to email GOG.
