Would an OEC look better in a bezel pendant?

Nothing to add re the OEC setting, but I just have to say - something pink in your 9 stone ring would be KILLER! Better than the diamond currently in it, I think.

Really looking forward to seeing these projects when completed! Enjoy!

Of course! I have a couple. One is Gabe Arik. He owns Happy jewelers in Fullerton. But. Since he hired influencers for his ig (you can find him on ig) his business is booming and I haven’t gone to his new location since I upgraded my stone. I don’t know if his bench followed him but it won’t hurt to try.
Now, my other one, is in the Ontario jewelry mart. He is the bench and you go directly To him—don’t talk to the jewelers or they will just play middle men and there is no need. His name is Hiep and he is sooo awesome! But. He is not a perfectionist and I don’t know how picky you are. He will go back and fix things til I am happy but bezels are not his forte and you have to be very specific with him. So... idk if you can deal with that uncertainty.
Finally—the third is located in Tustin jewelry mart. He is the bench there. And he is fabulous! I forgot his name but he is the only bench there. He does great work though he is pricier than Hiep. I think he would be a good fit for you.

Thank you so [email protected]! I think the Tustin jewelry mart person sounds like the best bet and closest to me.

@nala - I love your 9 stone with the pink center! Looks fabulous! Could you tell me the ct weight of each of the remaining 8 diamonds? I'd love to do a ring like this!

Re your bezel - I actually really like it, and I prefer it without the milgrain. I'm sorry you're not thrilled with it. Here's to you getting exactly what you want, asap!

Oh I like both! I like the bezel but personally would add milgrain. Something about OECs and milgrained bezels go together like peas in a pod. I like plain bezels too, but its a more modern look.

Thank you! The pink stone is a tourmaline and I chose it to complement the old cuts. The side stones total 1.8 carats and if I recall correctly, the two nearest the center stone are .40 each, but I forget the weight of the rest. My calipers are broken at the moment so I can’t caliper them for you. But I do know that they probably range in sizes and don’t perfectly mirror each but I repurposed the stones so I just went with it.

Thank you! I’m gonna just wait it out to see if it grows on me. Lol. No rush.

Thanks Nala - that's enough to go on. It's a beauty!
