New to me ring – using stones for other pieces?

It definitely would not be silly to reuse those diamonds in other pieces.

I have a 1 ct diamond pendant that was originally an earring that my stepmother gave me when she passed away.  It’s not the best quality, but my jeweler set it in a bezel and it looks beautiful and I wear it every day!

I also have another diamond earring that I put into a RHR.  Not ring quality, but you can’t tell.

As for studs, I think that’s a great use of those stones.  Do you have any idea what size they are?  I started with .25 ctw, then moved up to 1 ctw and about 1.5 years ago, I upgraded again to 1.65 ctw.  I think 1 ctw is a really perfect size to start.  I wore those for 8 years before I upgraded.

@bear123:  absolutely not silly! Your idea to use the stones for stud earrings and a pendant is excellent, you won’t regret it. Here is a picture of the pendant I had made from my original e-ring center pear stone. The ring had sat in my jewelry box for years after I got divorced. I absolutely love the pendant and wear it often!

@bear123:  not silly at all! My aunt had my grandmother’s diamond engagement ring reset into a bezel pendant and gave it to me as a wedding gift. I get lots of compliments on it! She kept the setting and put her birthstone in it to keep for herself.

I set my diamond from a previous engagement ring on a point in a necklace.  It’s lovely.

@ricli:  thanks! The pear is a .58 so pretty much the embryo of your honker.😉  I do love it and the diamond is very sparkly.
