    I’m with @MrsBuesleBee, get the solitaire and put the pink cushion sapphire in that ring as a RHR 🙂

    I can appreciate practically any style ring I see, but I’m so happy with my classic knife edge solitaire. I love that if I ever want to add color or switch it up I can do so with stacking bands. It looks like you have a beautiful center stone that would look great in a solitaire setting!

    What are the stats of the stone?

    I’m biased since I love a simple solitaire so I say absolutely go for it! That center stone is so pretty and should stand alone.  On the plus side, you will also get a great RHR out of it! I vote pink cushion.

    I also have really thought about having mine put into a solitaire setting too.

    I really love it as is and I hate dismantling a gorgeous piece. Any chance you could have both somehow? Lol, I know I’m no help and can be enabling.

    Instead of resetting my ring, I bought a solitaire with one of the new Amora Gems in it. It’s being made now. I wasn’t sure what I’d want and it was not that much more, dollars wise, to just get a new stone in a slightly different size. 

    So now I have a .88 solitare round (my original ring) with a pave setting, a 1.71 center in a three stone (my “real” ring, says my husband) and I just bought a 1.34 equivalent solitaire in yellow gold. I wear my smaller solitaire much, much more often than I wear my “real” ring, it’s just too big. I know it makes my husband proud so I do wear it to functions, etc but otherwise I wear a smaller ring or just my eternity band. I’m hoping the solitaire will kind of meet in the middle and since it’s a plain yellow gold ring, I won’t worry so much about damaging it.


    I guess my vote is “both?”

    To confuse matters: what about leaving it as is and getting a pink sapphire in a rose gold solitaire setting? I am think something like Schubach’s ballerine or scroll solitaire setting.

    rachie5478 :  I can understand wanting change! I am fortunate my fingers are close enough in size (and I also use speed bumps which are more forgiving) that I can wear some of rings on either hand. My antique halo is solely a left ring finger ring, but my two RHRs – my three stone H&A moissanite ring in yellow gold, and my art deco dinner ring – get switched to left sometimes. I too wanted a solitaire again for some purposes, so now am owner or Cinque Terre’s former 6.5mm moissanite OEC solitaire in rose gold.

    I’m usually team halo, however, I think a solitaire would be best! I love halos, but the double halo might overpower your center stone just a bit. Still gorgeous though!

    I vote solitaire all the way, but you can see my ring setting

    i think a nice diamond all alone, will speak for itself in an understated, beautiful, classy way.

    rachie5478 :  My vote totally goes to Solitaire!  As others have stated- it’s timeless, classic and is certainly understated gorgeousness. I think your center stone would look like perfection in a solitaire setting! Please update us if you do it.

    It looks like it’s a good quality stone so I would say Solitare. I love love LOVE halos but I have a high quality solitare as my ER. As much as I love the feminine sparkly (and big!) nature of the halos I can’t bear the thought of hiding my beautiful stone in a busy setting. It’s the best so I want to be able to see it! You are going to have the best of both worlds with a pink sapphire in the halo. That would be my dream RHR too!
