Well since cushions gave rounded corners it should be fine. .you could also have the stone compass set so that way the corners would be in the prongs..beautiful ring btw!

I think your corners would be fine – I have a cushion with barely there prongs, and besides those tiny prongs, all sides of my stone are exposed – haven’t had any trouble with it.  The only thing I’m not sure about – I am not too familiar with Moissanite (besides knowing that it’s gorgeous!) – is it just as hard as a diamond, or close?  I have a diamond.  That setting is GORGEOUS, btw!

OMG!! This ring was the inspiration for the shank/shoulders of my e-ring!! Love the design, you have very good taste, OP 🙂

I have a cushion cut diamond too, but I am clumsy and extremely nervous about bashing corners so incorperated a different basket in the final design:

I love the original basket but it made me too nervous. I did like that along the edges the girdle was protected so the basket I ended up with has this (as well as prongs on each corner) plus it goes well with the Art Deco aesthetic of the shank.

i do think the original basket design would be lovely though and fine with a stone without sharp corners ie, radiant, asscher or cushion.

More ring pics to give you an idea of how your ring may look if you get it made in this type of design with or without the original basket. Also because I love my ring and I’m a shameless self promoter lol :p

Jeeze – I just dont know…  I have a cushion but the prongs are on the corners.  But, the prongs you want look very cool, I like it a lot!   A suggestion – If your getting a mossy can you call or contact the mossy company and ask what they think about the setting and if you should be worried about chipping?  I’m not posting my cushion because its just a solitaire.

Possible to chip? Yes. Likely? No. If you’re worried I’d ask the jeweler, but as others have mentioned, cushions by definition have rounded corners and aren’t prone to chipping like princess cuts.

Lissandra:  The color of your stone is just divine. I love the contrast with the white gold.

I actually really like the milgrain bezel that was added in on the latest round of pics. Personally I’m hard on my rings so I prefer more protection and that bezel really adds to the antique vibe. Yowza!

Jonesishere:  I have an heirloom ring and the jeweler estimated my ring to be between 80-70 years old i Think (?). Anyways. It has a small chip on the girdle and he told me not to reset it as I run the risk of cracking the diamond. I still wear my ring everyday and I have hit it on things and immediately looked as I was sure it must have chipped but it hasn’t yet. It has another very small chip close to one of the prongs as well and no problems there either so far.

Luckily for us they left the chip out of the apprasal so we were able to insure it so now if it chips it will have full coverage. I say get it, it is a beautiful ring. Just make sure you insure it.

I think it would be fine. I have a milgrain bezel and LOVE it. the milgrain is actually super teeny, you can see that it’s textured and there
