I “had” a stone that was set in a ring from the late 1800’s. A jeweller felt he could make the ring larger, to fit my finger. In doing so, he destroyed the ring completely. It just fell to bits. He did apologize, but it was too late to salvage the ring itself. The center stone is an oval, 1.11 cts. and in surprisingly good shape. I did reset the stone into a beautiful halo. Even though the stone is probably a “J” and (obviously) doesn’t match the surrounding stones, the “look” has vetted me many compliments.
Even more interesting (to me lol) is it was my great grandmother’s ring and she was married to to my great grandfather, who was the Chief Medical officer of Toronto at the time. He made pasteurization of milk compulsory in Toronto. I have pictures of him, my g-grandmother and even her mother (my great-great grandmother) hanging on my walls.
The dresses were magnificent, but just imagine how long they had to sit and pose for pictures like that!
Try not to do the math, because I’ll admit to being a more “mature” bride. 😉 and sometimes that makes us ramble. lol
(If you made it this far, I give you credit!)

@Khalessi3: custom is pretty much the only option if you want something to sit flush with your ering. If you don’t care if you have a gap, get whatever you want 🙂
you can also move the ering to your right hand and get a fancier wedding ring to wear on your left ring finger.
I’m going the custom route. My wedding is in August, so I haven’t started the process yet but will in the next few months. Luckily, the independent jeweler where I got my ering also does custom work.

@Khalessi3: have you found anything yet? My ring is antique and while its a more traditional shape than yours, everything I try on just doesn’t compliment the style and details!

I love your ring! Gorgeous!
Mine is ina reproduction setting, modelled on a Victorian setting, but the stone is an old cut ca 1860 is that ok? Photos really don’t do it justice though…
