I can't wait to see it, @Mamabean!! I am contemplating/shopping for a heart shaped diamond also, to set in a pendent. I spent over an hour at ID Jewelry the other day, looking at several stones and comparing, etc. It was so fun. I put a deposit on one of the hearts, but I asked to see several more because of pricing. :kiss2: [I wish we had more heart emojis!!!!!]
@Fabulous50 I would love to visit ID jewelry! What are you planning to do with your heart diamond?
I will relax when it’s actually shipped. I eventually told David what happened...that I purchased the same diamond. He said it actually happened to him! I think it wasn’t available because of a glitch in the system. After MY hold expired it became available again. That’s how I was able to purchase it. The fact that I looked through so many diamonds and picked the same one is proof it was meant to be! Please post pics of the heart diamond you eventually get!

I finally set the fantasy cut tourmaline and the spessartite garnet.

Here is also a plique a jour pendant/Pin. It’s set with topaz and “rubies.”

I will! Visiting ID Jewelry was a real treat, because they also seem to enjoy the process. At one point, Yekutiel brought out a 9+ carat heart shaped diamond pendent and let me try it on! It was so fabulous.
I am planning to set mine in a pendent as well when I find the right diamond and the timing is right. Please share yours as well!! It does sound meant to be!

Looks to be channel set as no metal “beads” prongs holding the stones?

1 day shipment from the U.K., customs/duties were a breeze thru DHL

The stones are very pretty, the setting seems secure.
It’s not really channel set, what’s this setting type called - anyone know?
It does look channel set to me..It’s very pretty!

@Rfisher that's so pretty! Looks like perfect single cuts. I'd call that chanel set, but I could be wrong. Maybe they are burnish set + channel?

Thank you!

I think the very visible metal inbetween the stones sitting just below the girdles isn’t what I’m used to seeing as a typical channel set.

I agree that this doesn't seem like a typical channel setting. My channel set band has empty space in between the diamonds instead of metal. Yours is so unique and gorgeous!

Thank you everyone..I even sent David a link to it..and he answered me. I was thinking of doing a baguette halo..until I got the estimate. At that price and the price of the heart diamond I could get a bigger diamond. I’m going to look again when I get to Maryland today..I’m going to stick with my original plan to do a stacking bezel ring. I have to have something in a baguette halo though..I just love them! I don’t know how that would look around an asscher diamond. I think I may just want that to be a soli..:think: My birthday is Monday...I have no idea what my mad money gift is. I’ll add that to the Christmas one and then see what I have to work with for the larger gift. The heart diamond is from another pot..haha. :appl:
I love baguette halos too! I am surprised that we don't see them more often here on PS.

When I went to IDJ to look at hearts, I saw one that I actually put a deposit on. Its bigger and more expensive than what I had in mind, but I loved the shape (kind of bigger lobes and very very heart shaped, if you know what I mean!). Anyway I have been dreaming about it, and I have to let it go or put more of a deposit on it to hold it now. I would really love opinions on this stone from those of you who know what you are doing, if you don't mind! I have a copy of the GIA certificate:

Email sent to start my convertible pendant/bangle project with my mum's near 2ct MRB, so that I could get as much out of it as possible.
And i just thought about having different styles of pendant settings to be made at the same time if budget allows.

That's really pretty! From the UK, you say? May I ask where from? We don't see a whole of lot UK vendors on here.
