I would wear it as an alternate ering.  I don’t like rhr’s to be be bigger than my ering.  For the setting, it depends on the stats o f the stone.  But I would set it different than my other rings or my ering…so maybe yellow gold or rose gold.

Ring. I rarely wear jewelry other than rings. I like my sparklies right where I can see them, so I can stop and admire.

@PinkMagnolia: wow! i’d probably get it set in a necklace. Darling Husband is proud of his stone pick so out of respect for him, i don’t think i’d wear it as an e-ring unless he suggested it.

I have seen a ton of ladies wear diamonds on their right hands.  I would have it reset as a right handed ring and would wear it all the time.

I would have it set in a solitaire and wear as my ering.  I would keep my current one too, probaby for my daughters.

I’d probably have it set as a solitaire necklace, too. I’m sure you could find a chain and clasp that were sturdy enough to make sure it didn’t break and get lost.

I would have it put in a necklace I think. That’s what I’ve thought about doing with the much smaller heirloom stones that I have.  Some places charge a mint for setting a loose stone, so that’s whats been keeping me from doing it!

How exciting! I would keep my ering setting, but have the new stone set in the original’s place. Maybe use my first ering stone as a right hand ring or set in a necklace. My fiance isnt sensitive to this though, if he had an issue with it, then I would probably have set in necklace so as to not upstage my ering.

depends on if i already had an ering or not – since i do i would most likely get it put in a necklace. My sister was given my grandmothers diamond when she passed. its a 1.5ct round diamond and beautiful! She had it in her engagment ring but when she divorced she had it enclosed in a casing for a necklace and it looks beautiful. I actually wore it for my wedding. you can kind of see it in this picture

If i didnt have an e-ring i would totally get it reset and use it for my ering.
