Do you have a custom jewler near you? You can take the earring in and explain what she wants. They will take it and make an autocad that you can change until you are happy. My husband had an easy time with this when he designed my ring

How about making it a threestone? Or some kind of “snow man” pyramid, i dunno. 🙂 Is she into vintage jewellery? There are a lot of beautiful designs with stones in different sizes 🙂

Google “two stone diamond ring” and you will see lots of examples with two stones in one ring, if that’s what you are looking for! 🙂

jk1186:  What about a very delicate halo which would make the stone appear a bit larger, but not take away from it at the same time. you could do a setting something like this with the pave’ band you posted.

Hi– I think I can help with some insight. I asked the same of my Fiance before he proposed–to use an heirloom round diamond from my grandmother. He was stressed because I have similar taste to your gf and also wanted a larger stone in a more classic setting.

My Fiance ended up getting me a new diamond in secret, because he wanted to propose with a larger stone than my grandmother’s, and didn’t want to give me a 3-stone because he knew I preferred a classic style pave ring. We are now looking to reset my grandmother’s diamond into a different piece of jewelry instead. 

If your gf would like a surprise proposal, perhaps that would work well for you. My Fiance kept the proposal a complete surprise, by keeping that heirloom stone where I could find it and saying “oh I don’t know how I will go get it set without you knowing.” 

Perhaps you should ask your gf if her heart is set on you proposing with her grandmother’s diamond, or if she would like it incorporated with other stones, to get a better idea of what she wants. Good luck! I’m sure she will love whatever you propose with.

A 3 stone is pretty classic and very pretty.

Depending on the size, you could incorporate it somehow in the basket, or you could do something like this…

What about using the stone in the wedding band. I wanted to use stones from my mother’s ring but I wanted something a bit larger. So I am using my mother’s stones for my wedding bad, along with a few new stones. Just an idea!

You could have it set in a necklace to match the ring.

jk1186:  Make it a three stone. Get a center stone and another stone the size of the earring.

What about setting Grandmas’s stone as a “peekaboo” type stone with a contrasting metal to set it apart from the rest of the setting?
