    I have come into possession of a great pear diamond. Between 1.25-1.5 carat (by measurement), eye clean and H-I color. No bow tie. It's currently in a classic setting with baguettes on each side. Very engagement ring-ish!

    I have a special love for pears - my first engagement ring was a .25 pear solitaire with gold bands on each side!

    We will make this into a rhr - my engagement/wedding ring is a 2.09 round in a 3.75 ctw. setting - so no replacing it!

    Ready to consider all options!

    Ideas? Will post photos of diamond and current setting soon!

    Depending on your stone's dimensions, I love a good pear three-stone. That might be a little bridal for you, I don't know.

    I love halos on pears, and for rhrs.

    A double halo RHR would be nice.

    I'm thinking a halo - probably a double halo. I prefer higher-set stones, so will have to look at that factor!

    Have you considered a drop pendant? I know you're thinking rings, but a nice drop pendant with a sturdy chain could be lovely.

    Still thinking! Mrs. M C - maybe a pendant!

    For rings - I'm liking 2 tone, double halo with a twisty band.

    I had a ring just like that, that I bought back in the 1990s from QVC and it was BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!! Everytime I wore it, got gobs of compliments!!! Don't know what happened to it. It disappeared. I asked my oldest daughter if she "maybe" borrowed it, since she would borrow my good stuff without asking and she claims "NO". It was a beaut!! I always loved it. Hope I can find it sometime.

    [​IMG] Took it to my local jeweler yesterday to have the diamond set. The shank is a little thinner than I would like... his idea - I loved it - was to add a small yellow gold shank to each side of the white gold already there. I will pick it up on Wednesday. Can't wait to see it!

    Thank you for the ideas! I will post pics soon!

    For a right hand ring, I would totally do a two-tone white and rose gold halo! I'm loving the two-tone look these days.

    I think a double halo would be perfect.
