Hi everyone!

My bf and I have been looking into engagement rings, and I found this forum in my search for more information. I've been lurking for the past few weeks or so, but have found this site so incredibly helpful and addicting that I had to join and say thanks!

It'll be a while yet until I'll actually be getting engaged, but I've more or less made up my mind as to what I want, and it's just a matter now of finding the right setting! I have a 1.75 carat Asha oval that I'd like to have as my center stone, and I'd like a comfort-fit 3-stone band, in either 18k white gold or platinum, that has 2 pear-shaped sapphires, somewhere between .25 and .5 carats each.

I've seen the setting I want on Blue Nile, but they apparently don't sell their settings without a diamond purchase, so my bf and I are looking into getting it custom-made, since I can't seem to find quite the same setting anywhere else.

Anyway, thanks in advance for your help, and I am excited to be a part of this forum!

Hello Chiaroscuro,
Welcome to DT. Your future e-ring sounds beautiful. We've drooled over many 3 stone rings with sapphires around here. You're in good company. Hope you enjoy your stay.

Irish

Ooops forgot to say I'll look around for some pictures to see where you might find the mounting you described.

I found something!! It's on www.platinumMFG.com. They say they can adjust the head if your stone is larger than 1.5, so it will fit your Asha. And it's on sale!! You can see other views of this ring on their site.

I still sort of have my heart set on the Blue Nile setting, even though I know I can't get that exact one...

I thought I posted this last night Oh well here is the Leo Ingwer piece, that I think is your ring. Yes, I know it has diamonds. But Wait! See the inset picture? They make the ring as a blank. You can choose 3 different size pears measurements, and they will make it with the 6 prong head to fit your Asha. Ta! Da!

You can look on the site for a jeweler local to you or ask Micheal_E here-he may be able to help. I haven't looked at Stuller.com, but they may have something as well. Keep us posted on your search..
