PatLeigh :  I think the Harry Winston you’re talking about actually has trapezoids for side stones, not emeralds. Trapezoids are a cheaper and better option because they compliment the center stone a lot better and don’t take away from it.

If it were me I would set it like this. I have a pink cushion also, it’s not set in anything but if I were going to set it this is how I would. I would also use rose gold for the pink diamond and ask the jeweller to make a rose gold cup as others have suggested. I really love the idea of a halo with the white diamonds contrasting the pink. Also a halo of yellow diamonds looks amazing too!!

So I have a color O/P diamond that I had David Klass reset and we added a color enhancement cup to it and the stone now looks like a fancy, I also did a two tone setting with the shank being platinum and the center being 18k yellow gold. The two tone blended very well and I don’t even see the prongs anymore. I think the same concept would apply to your lovely diamond if you did rose gold prongs, for added color contrast I would look into pairing it with colorless/near colorless side stones or melee to have your center stone pop. 

Sorry for the large photos but this is for color reference, see how light yellow tinted my diamond is before setting…nothing fancy going on 

 

Ok ok this photo is stupid large and I again apologize but I chose this one to not only show you the color difference the cup did but also if you choose not to do a cup, the reason to still do rose gold prongs…as you can see in the photo my prongs basically disappear into the stone, this is a zoomed pic so looking it in person the prongs are even less noticeable. 

 

 

Just my 2 cents from one girl to another about colored diamonds! You have a gorgeous stone and pinks are so very precious, it’s hard to just decide one setting to showcase it

KKJohnson :  omg I’m in love with your ring!!! It’s absolutely beautiful! I love a chunky marquis. And I agree I have a fancy yellow heart cut I don’t have a cup but I have yellow 18k gold prongs with white diamond halo and band in 18k white gold for contrast and it looks amazing! I’m getting my L colour pear cut set in a solitaire and my jeweller is making my setting again but this time I’m going all white because it only looks yellow in certain lighting lol. The things we do!! Again I love your ring!!

EmeleeRose :  Thank you! Yes my marquise is a very chunky lady, she use to be larger but my Mother-In-Law chipped one of the ends and they had it recut which gave it a great chunky look. I had (relative term) to get a cup on mine because of the keel line, it gave my ring a very distinct “eye of sauron” look that I wanted eliminated which worked out perfect. The only difference from most other rings with cups is DK added a small hole on each side of the backing instead of the very middle to allow for most color saturation down the middle and for cleaning purposes.

PatLeigh :  I would be little sceptical too! Have you seen this diamond in person? I’m only asking because a picture is not always accurate in terms of colour etc especially fancy coloured diamonds! Being a fancy light brownish pink I would be concerned that the colour has more of a brown tone as opposed to pink. For example I have a fancy GIA certified light pinkish brown cushion so pink is more prominent than the brown etc if that makes any sense? I have a photograph that was magnified versus in real life and to my trained eye it looks a little different in colour. It depends on lighting and where the pic was taken, with a pro camera etc. my best advice is to not buy a fancy coloured diamond or any diamond sight unseen, more so a fancy colour! If you already have seen it and are happy with the hue then I apologise and ignore what I have said lol 😂 I hope it works out and can’t wait to see you setting ideas!

WOWZA! So gorgeous! I would 100% put a rose gold cup underneath that (regardless of what setting you go with) to really draw the pink out.  I cannot wait to see what you choose, but I really don’t think you can go wrong! My vote is halo or haguette side stones!

I am drooling over your gorgeous diamond!!! I personally would do rose gold. Yes, it is trendy, but it would complement the color of your stone very nicely. I don’t think a white metal would do it justice. I would definitely do a pave band. I think a delicate halo would be lovely as well, but it’s definitely pretty enough to stand out on its own if you prefer a solitaire setting. Look on pinterest and etsy for morganite rings, as they have a similar color and will give you some ideas.
