Bezel cads are in, feel free to chime in!
I hope it's okay to start a new thread. DK sent cads today. It does look exactly like inspiration pics but I'm not sure if I like the profile now.
Here's the original thread:

I'm wondering if a bezel solitaire can have a cathedral shank and still nestle with another bezel solitaire? Here is the jbeg Astin, I love the profile especially the detail under the middle stone. I'm may ask DK if he could modify shank to incorporate the same detail. Would that be too busy?

They are plain, but for what you want, i personally think they'd be too busy if you prettied up the profiles. I vote to leave them as-is.

I think a simpler floating bezel designed for flush fit would be better.

Ditto this! Or do you not want them to sit flush?

Alright the gallery probably can't be prettied up since I want the rings to sit flush, how about adding scattering of diamonds Michael B. Lace style? I dont think I'm a simple bezel kind of girl, I need some kind of detail. Thank you girls for your input, I truly value it!

You are going to milgrain the bezels, right?

I'm not a fan of the lace, but that is just me.
I was thinking, are you going to wear these alone? If you added one small band of bling inbetween that would allow you to keep these plain.
Just to give you an idea, obviously this wouldn't look quite the same:

Or if you are adding milgrain like you said, I saw this:

Last but not least:
Adding some bezel set stones into the bands. You could do different

RE: Bezel cads are in, feel free to chime in!
So.....

first, I'm not a fan of the lace design personally so that's out for me... but from what I hear the design is gorgeous irl and not so much in photos so I could be wrong about not liking it. BUT I feel like the lace design is very antique and feminine and it just doesn't gel with the modern stack look for me.

second, if you are going to add milgrain to the bezels...along with the stacking... I think you are pretty much set. I think too much detail on a stack set will get lost, feel busy, and/or look overwhelming.

I couldn't see the photos that Olive posted, but from the descriptions, I like the sound of adding one or several thin (1.5mm-1.8mm) pave stackers for the added bling, texture and interest.
