Photos of the ring? I love heart stones, they tend to be a love or hate cut.

I think bezel settings are the nicest for heart shaped diamonds, but that’s because I love the shape and that’s exactly what my ering is, lol. If you really don’t want to show off the heart shape, don’t get a bezel!

How large is the diamond? If it’s a smaller stone, just having it prong set will help hide the shape a bit…someone would have to look really closely to tell if it’s a heart if it’s like .40 or less – but again, I’m not sure on the size of your stone.

I know what you mean about trying to disguise the shape. Do you like pear shapes? Maybe you could get something custom pear shaped halo setting made, and have the jeweler “fill in” the shape with small diamonds above the curvy part of the heart shape? It’s kind of hard to describe what I’m imaginging…but if you did a cluster ring, with stones set all around the main diamond, you could hide the shape pretty well.

@brandi_uab:  I just saw your reply after hitting send! I think changing it to a “pear shape” with melee diamonds and a halo setting is your best bet and a good jeweler would definitely be able to do it!

I agree with the bezel idea.

I’m having issues with posting links, but if you google “moissanite heart bezette” that’s the setting I have in mind.
