Today I upgraded my setting on my engagement ring. When dh bought my original engagement ring he bought the cheapest setting to get a better stone and now he decided he wanted to upgrade the setting as a birthday present. We purchased it in the store and the jeweler said it would be ready by tomorrow. I found the setting online and it says it can only be set with a princess or round cut from .95 . I am kind of concerned about this cause my stone is .60 emerald. I am worried there will be a big space where the stone is set. Here are some stock photo pics, they really do not do this ring justice. Im going to call in the morning and talk to the jeweler before they proceed with setting my stone. I hope it works out because I really do love this setting.

@ashley99: Well it’s a pretty ring. But if is says only princess or round of a certain weight I would assume they mean it. I hope it works out for you.

@ashley99: What is most likely to happen, is whatever length your emerald has in comparison to a round stone that would “fit” in it will just over hang from the ends of the prongs. It won’t look bad (btw-the ring is gorgeous!), it will just have to be treated a little bit more delicately than with something that “fits.” They should have no problem setting an emerald in there, though, and for what it’s worth, I really love the “over hang” look! Can’t wait to see pictures when it’s all complete!
