Thanks for the compliments. I will try to make the long story short. The CURRENT pear I have is 2 carats, GIA/H/VS1/Ex/VG. I exchanged the previous microsetting for this one. I think I have a post with a pic of that setting on this forum. All of my pears and jewelry comes from my local B&M store. To be honest MA, I didn't even ask who the manufacturer of the setting is. When I saw it, I just knew I had to have it. It is 18k which at first was an issue, but I like to change settings so much,I quickly got over it. Its definitely a trendy piece. It's a very daring ring and has quite a large presence, and I think it would really enhance a smaller pear. Cheers everyone!
