Because of the size and visual impact of the center stone, I’d vote for a simpler setting that really showcases that stone without a lot of extra going on. I like the pic that the PP posted with the smaller stones in the side. I would also look at solitaire settings and the like…

 

 

I  like the idea of using the other stones to make a separate band but with such a beautiful (and large) center stone I’d want to avoid anything that looks excessive or gaudy. Its like the difference between Maruah Carey’s ring with Nick Cannon vs the one with James Packer. Both were large but one was way overdone (in all its iterations) and the other was elegant and striking.

What a gorgeous stone! I love the cutlet in it. Due to the size and amazing vintage stone, i would keep the setting simple to highlight the stone. Heres some inspiration from various people like jewelsbygrace and david klass. Thr first one is a video but i love the bullet sidestones with it!

I agree with others that with the size of the stone, KISS is the way to go. With the color, I’d stick with yellow gold around the stone. I think a split shank might really help balance the ring. A thin band will be pretty unbalanced and lead to spinning. But, you an make the basket pretty intricate or pretty simple. This ring below is about the same size/spread as yours and the split shank really looks elegant. 

You’ll have to go custom, so I’d check with David Klass for a price.

Basket from another, which is 9 carats. I prefer the split shank from LM above, but this is a pretty basket. https://www.langantiques.com/9-55-carat-marquise-oval-moval-edwardian-platinum-ring.html

If a split shank does not appeal, you can use a wider shoulder.

That stone needs no other diamonds in the shank to stand out.  What size is it?  It should stand on it’s own, its an amazing cut!

I love the simple baguettes on the side.Cannot go wrong with classic and elegant. The stone is GORGEOUS and quite substantial. Adding a halo would honestly detract from the beauty of the stone.

I am a big fan of either the trillion sidestone idea or simply a band with pave. A stone that size speaks for itself and really needs no enhancements. What a great project; I LOVE marquise stones!

I think that’s too much.. your stone is way too large and significant to have so much more bling. Normally more is more but, not in this case.  You don’t want anything in the set to take away from the center.
