So, this would be used as a right hand ring perhaps? At first I thought it was for your engagement ring, but I see you already have one. I like the first picture you have for a potential setting. I don’t know that I would like the second one for a marquis. Although the more I think about it, the more I like it lol. It would definitely be unique!! I would take a look at how many of the smaller diamonds there are and the size (whether they are all the same approximate size or not). You could do the first setting you mentioned, and just have it on an eternity band. That would be pretty. If they are all different sizes, that wouldn’t really work for your wedding band anyway. If they are the same, I think it could make a lovely band for you. Search floating wedding bands. They are lovely and it looks like the diamonds you have would work nicely for it. I don’t think they would be too big. You could also have the extra diamonds made into a band for another finger as well.

Here’s my idea… I am definitely partial to bypass settings (my ering is a bypass semibezel), and I thinj you could incorporate the smaller diamonds in a channel or something sturdy for generations to come. I think a bypass setting would look awesome with an east-west marquise!

I also have an east-west pear RHR, it might give you some ideas, too (although there are no side diamonds on mine):


Good luck!

12_Elle :  I really like the bypass setting!  What if you put the marquise on a 45 degree angle between the bypass?  I had a sapphire ring like this (that I lost) and I always thought ti was a neat way to set it.

Does it have to be a ring? What about turning into a pendant,  or a pendant with earrings?

I would not want to recieve a passed down ring from a failed marriage,  personally. Even if the ring is reset. I’d be ok with using the stones for a different type of jewellery.

12_Elle :  I would do an east-west solitude and use the rounds for another project!

What are the sizes of the diamonds you would consider using for a potential wedding band? I used your solitaire as a starting point for the solitaire DK made for me, and I have it paired with a diamond band. My soli is 1.71ct, but measures approx 7.5mm across, and the diamonds in the band are 2mm each. They are bezel set and give the illusion of being 2.5mm diamonds. I think I could have used 3-3.5mm diamonds and still looked proportional, but anything over that would probably be overwhelming.

I found these settings in rose gold and think they are stunning!! 


This one you could incorporate the rounds you have instead of the small marquise side stones

and this one you could you use 4 of your rounds in the bezel. This would look amazing with or without the pave shank.

Something like above would look amazing in rose gold. The extra round diamonds could be used to make a bezel set multi diamond  band to wear with it.

Below could be another option.

Ooh fun! I’m partial to an east west setting too but DK could also do a nice rustic looking bezel which would look great as a RHR I think!
