    I’m confused. Are you just making the ring because you have the stone and why not? Or is it intended for you? Or somebody specific? It just looks like you are wanting to make an e-ring for somebody else… Are you?

    @puppiekisses:  Why don’t you just keep the stone and have it set for her for later on? That way it doesn’t look like a big fancy engagement ring? Not that your choices aren’t gorgeous. Both of them really are! I know it meant the world to me when Mr. Hedgie took a stone from his great grandmothers e-ring and put it in my own setting. The setting is gorgeous and all about me but the stone has so much meaning on its own!

    If you really do want to make the ring, my vote is for the first one. The shape and setting makes it super elegant without being too in your face.

    I would just keep the stone and let your sister choose her own setting for it. It could still be your gift if you want, but at least she’ll get the thrill of picking it to her own tastes!

    ETA: why don’t you just ask her if it’s something she’d even want before moving forward anyway? Seems like you’re going off a lot of assumptions here!

    You could always set it into a pendant also?  Just a thought…

    When would you plan on giving it to her? For a 21st birthday or straight away or much later on down the line?

    thats so nice of you to do this  for your sister.

    but if i were getting engaged with a family stone, i’d prefer my fiance to put it in a new setting. obviously this is a new stone, and no one has worn it before, but i think that one day when she gets married it would be nice for her fiance to pick out a setting that he think she’ll love. he can pay for the gold… he’s getting the stone for free, so that is a huge help.

    p.s. i like round WAY better than princess!
