It will weaken the prongs to have that done, so I wouldn’t recommend it.  Plus, I don’t think it will work because – the square stone has 90 degree angles- cut into the prong to set it.  I don’t want to ruin your hopes and dreams though, so ask a local jeweler!

yep, I agree with cbee. ask a jeweler.

just curious: I thought OEC cuts were no longer done for structural reasons – because the girdle is too sharp and chips easily? I have an original OEC (from the early 20th century) and it has chips all around the edges. but I still love it anyway.
