Just ordered a loose cushion diamond, it’s slightly elongated at 5.8x4mm – so imagine more elonagted than square in these settings. Open to other ideas too!
1) thin halo with split shank
2) Soleste style double halo
3) vintage style bezel halo

anev : Me too! Just having trouble finding a inspiration picture with an elongated center to visualize vs the more roundish or square centers…

I voted vintage bezel setting. I’m personally not normally a massive fan of halos but that one is gorgeous! Love it!

I’m also not really a halo person… but that vintage bezel is absolutely stunning! I think with the elongated diamond it will still be beautiful.

Vintage wins every time with me. Because the diamond stands out IMO. Can we see pics of the stone?

I also love vinatge, and I LOVE a bezel! Just wish I could find a picture with a ratio (1.38) similar to mine to get an idea of how it will look. I’ve had several projects with a vintage design and they are always so pretty. I love that thin halo but I’m wondering if I will be underwhelmed since the center diamond is much more modest compared to all of the Pinterest rings haha
Here’s the diamond, E/SI1. Stock picture for now, don’t have it in yet.

I am a fan of the thin halo! But I like delicate, thin things anyway. It’s whatever appeals to YOU the most!

I love the split shank but its because it’s what I want, and i absolutely hate bezel set stones, so its a major personal preference thing. You’re the one wearing it! Can you find some cheapy CZ replicas and wear them around for a day each or even just go to a jeweler and just actually try similar designs on?
You may have better luck imagining them if you just search for emerald cut or oval as your cushion is very elongated.

That vintage setting is spectacular! An elongated stone will look beautiful, and as a pp mentioned, the bezel makes the stone stand out.
