Hi JDDN :)

That setting was made for me by D. Vatche and I bought it through GOG. I modified one of their 3 stone stock settings (www.dvatche.com - go to 3 Stone settings and look for setting 314) to remove the airlines under the band and to put a slight curve in the band where it met the side stones. I worked with Marie who seemed to perfectly understand what it was I wanted and conveyed it to D. Vatche for me.

I LOVED that setting and thought it was super elegant and I intend to replace it one day. In fact, I already have the side stones. :D

Let me know if you go this route; I've always thought it was one of the most beautiful 3 stone settings I've seen.

Here's another photo of it which shows the gorgeous taper at the side of the band and the tiny little prongs.

And just because I'm on a roll....

D. Vatche also set my small diamond. This ring has the tiniest prongs I've ever seen. Glorious workmanship.

Hi Gemgirl, thank you for reviving this old thread!! Because of you, I now have my answer ::) .

MrsBlop, thank you so much for explaining to me!! I couldn't find anything like it anywhere (weird I know) and it was baffling me. But now I know you modified it and that makes perfect sense when I go back and look at the Vatche 314 setting. It's the small details that got me. The soft shoulder with no airlines and the curve of the side stones are perfect. Also I love the tiny prongs!

I've been all over the map on how to set a 1.6 MRB I had recut by BGD. It was going to be a 3 stone for the longest time, but I had so much trouble finding a matching pair of 40 pointers....sigh. Now I'm considering other avenues but I keep changing my mind :(( . Anyway, if I go with your modified Vatche setting I will definitely update! Any btw, you have an amazing and stunning collection!!!!!

Thank you for the kind comment!

And your recut 1.6 must be amazing! My sides were 35% each of the center stone; they were each .72ct - so 1.44ctw - and the center was 2.05ct. I thought the proportions were just right.

Good luck with your project and I'll look forward to seeing it done! :wavey:

Hi hatha :)

The band was made by Leon. As I recall, they're 3.5pts each and the total is 1.02ctw. They're beautiful little stones and the workmanship, as one would expect from Leon, is fabulous.
