Hey Bees! PLEASE READ BEFORE VOTING! 🙂
I have a few other threads asking opinions about which type of setting I should get for my oval pink sapphire but I finally have drawings to show so you all! The gist is that my original setting was made to fit an incorrect stone and there were lots of ‘gaps’ and I am now deciding on a tight oval halo or a cushion halo. I am also considering switching my metal from White gold to Rose Gold.
I like the oval a lot but I always thought I’d want a cushion stone/setting. The jeweler we are using apparently thinks the best think to do is use larger stones on the ‘corners’ of the cushion to eliminate any gaps. (FI said he saw one and it looked great).
I am still considering switching from White gold to 14k Rose gold (which I do love) but I originally thought the WG made the center stone sparkle more…
I’d love to see any pictures you might have of your oval stone in a non-oval setting and of course any pink sapphires in rose gold. Thank you!! My ring size is 5.75.
Here is a picture of my ring as it is now. Love my cotton candy pink CS!
Here is the Cushion with the larger stones at the ‘corners’
Here is the matching oval shape halo setting

I agree that WG would help your sapphire to pop. I also like the idea of switching your corner stones to larger. What a great twist on the halo, you know?

I know this isn’t one of the options on your poll bur here’s what I would do. I would probably go with the oval halo, and have the halo itself made in rose gold and the shank in white gold, maybe even have the undergallery made in rose gold too. Then I’d pair it with a rose gold wedding band 🙂

MrsSparkleBee13: Yes!!! This would be my choice 😊 I have a mixed metal Oval Halo. It so unique and I can’t tell you how many people stop to ask about it. Sometimes I wonder if I should have also made the Halo rose gold as you suggest!
what a beautiful stone! Personally I would go with the oval halo, such a classic look IMO, but I may be biased 😜. BUT I never thought or have seen a cushion halo with an oval stone, such a unique idea. Can’t go wrong either way.

you know if you like the Rose gold but want the white to make the pink pop you could always make the ban rose gold and the halo white! just a thought 😊

I voted oval halo white gold. Even though that cad of the cushion with those larger stones made me faint, to avoid any possibility of this same problem happening again-go with the oval. Or you could go with a oval halo with larger stones!!! I love that look! So much extra sparkle!!!! It’s going to be killer either way!!

I voted for oval halo in rose gold. I think it would look so vintage and romantic.
If you decided to go for the cushion halo, then my vote would be white gold for that one.
Both of the CADs are gorgeous! You really and truly can’t go wrong either way. Sometimes, that makes the choice harder, though — ha, ha!

I’m torn between the cushion halo and the oval halo, so no help there lol. But I would stay with the white gold, because I think it makes your stone pop. And since your stone is a more cool shade of pink I think it might compete with the pinky warmth of rose gold.

I would pick oval halo, white gold from your choices. But mixed metal would be great. Rose gold band on a white gold halo would really make that stone pop.

Part of why I am having a difficult time deciding is that these 2 drawings have different size center stones!!! The cushion is 7×6 while the oval is 8×6…perfect example of how my ring got messed up in the first place. If the cushion measurement is correct–will they have to remove a stone from the oval setting…or if the oval size is correct add on to the cushion to make it fit…? Anyone know about this? I am trying to not let my frustration get the better of me- but isn’t this the whole point of having a CAD done in the first place?!?!!??!!!!!! Ahhhhh help me find my center please Bees.

I think the oval setting would look stunning, I voted WG, but the rose gold would look good too, so that was the hard part of the poll, I think either WG or RG would look good, but in my opinion definitely the oval setting.

Thank you for the sympathy. Honestly I am feeling like no one else thinks I should be frustrated.
