Can I see some basic solitaires with a subtle flourish? Petal prongs, filigree?

My boyfriend hasn’t proposed yet, but he already bought my dream ring, which is a 6-prong solitaire with a platinum setting by Mark Morrell. In my opinion, Mark Morrell is the master of classic solitaire settings with a bit of flair. This is what my ring will look like:

I love the prong style too – look up lotus or tulip settings! You’ll find a ton!!

Yes, the sides coming up and meeting the top is called a cathedral, and you’ll find both with and without, your personal choice. 🙂

frogplus :  I probably looked through dozens of other settings before my fiance finally chose for me! I’m way too indecisive. Yes it’s a cathedral, but as tulipbee mentioned, there are tons of options that come with and without that so it’s just up to you!

luckyrabbit :  Thank you! Sure, here’s another:

frogplus :  I don’t know about the carat size in those pics, but the pictures on his website should tell you the carat size and the ring size for each one. That design is called the Slim Petite Torchiere (it’s the same as the Petite Torchiere, but with a thinner band). You can order it with small diamonds in the crown or without. I chose the one without diamonds in the crown because it just looks cleaner to me, but all of his settings are lovely! I found his prices to be very reasonable too (in some cases, less expensive than some mass-produced settings I’ve seen).

tulipbee :  This is my idea of Galadriel’s ring in Lord of the Ring…. 😉

Sorry for the crass finger. Here is my middle finger ring. It’s 0.25 carat only but it’s petal-prongs made by a local jeweller.
