Beautiful Edwardian 18K Filigree Setting w/ Hideous Diamond

This setting I got from the antique mall I own/work at, and I adore the setting. It was cheap, under $100, because it's missing a side sapphire, and the diamond is 100% frozen monkey spit. I've never seen an uglier stone! It is like one big inclusion, black carbon spots for accent, and the faceting... well, clearly they cut it with a hatchet, that's all I can guess. I am not even sure what to call the "cut" (and I use the term loosely here). Rose? Probably. In the photo, those are not facets you see. Those are inclusions. Oh well, the setting is so darn cool I really don't care. I kinda wish it was not bezel set though, because replacing the stone will be really tough. It once had a really amazing hand engraved design all over the shank but the original owner wore it for so many years its totally worn off the bottom, except for faint, faint traces.
