    I have a Q/R set in 18kt yellow gold.  I wanted to really play up the warmth; it usually looks vanilla to buttery but in some light it looks like a fancy light yellow.  

    Excuse the manicure, my nail tech got sick and had to reschedule so my nails are a bit overgrown.

    I say bezel it in yellow and do the remainder of the setting in white. They look especially lovely in a white gold halo with higher color diamonds. Really amps up the contrast. 

    It is my goal in life to do this with a brownish yellow antique OEC one of these days! 

    We need pics!

    mjay :  Yes! That first pic is exactly what I’m talking about! I prefer an airline in between the bezel and the halo, personally. 

    Where did you find the stone? There’s one a little over half a carat I’ve had my eye on but was afraid it would be too small. Following to see how it turns out!

    mjay :  Aaaaahhhhh!!!!!! I LOVE that color!!! It’s absolutely gorgeous! I think a halo will be perfect for her. I can’t wait to see what you come up with for the design. Where are you having the setting made? 

    Two questions: what are the dimensions, and what did you type in to search on eBay? I’ve been looking for a small brown OEC but wasn’t having much luck. Wondering if I’m searching wrong? The only one I’ve found that I was interested in was the small one from Ivy & Rose.

    Haha! That’s so funny! I keep looking at it wondering if the girdle chip would be covered by a bezel. I do love the color and the price is pretty crazy too! 

    If you don’t mind me asking, what eBay seller did you purchase it from? Might take a look at their inventory too. 

    I am beyond excited to follow your journey!
