I recently upgraded my stone (see thread,"was this a good deal?" on rocky talky). My original bands were custom made to hold my 1ct stone. We tried using the same setting for my 1.79, and after two trials of manipulation by the jeweler, it still was not quite right. There were gaps between the bands, one side was more noticeable than the other. It was slight, but still enough to bug me and my OCD tendencies. After much deliberation, I met with another jeweler yesterday, and he designed the most amazing setting for me! I love that it still captures the overall look of my original setting, yet gives it a modern twist. I can't wait!!!! : )
Trial one. Noticed triangular gaps.

Trial two. Much better, but still off-asymmetric.

Sides will have two rectangular baguettes next to each other. Computer program would only show single large one.
