Hi Bees! I need some help. I currently have a cathedral set solitaire which is classic and beautiful, but I’ve been thinking heavily about changing it up. I’m sentimental though, so although I could also upgrade the diamond, I think I would prefer to reset the current diamond in a new setting. My diamond is pretty modest sized at .69 ct though, so it’s been tough to picture what the settings will look like with it because most stock photos are showcasing stones 1 ct+. So I’m asking for help on two things (I REALLY wish we had polls back right now!):
1. Please give feedback on which of the two settings above you prefer. (Pics 1 – 3 are Ring #1 and pics 4 – 6 are Ring #2)
2. Both of these settings are from BluNile. The second one is Monique Lhuillier, which is exclusive to BN. I want to keep my stone and therefore only need a setting, but they do not sell settings alone. So either way I would need it custom made. If you have had or are having your ring custom made, could you please tell me where it’s being done, what the process has been like, and any other info you feel I should know about the custom process?
Thanks so much!
