Question  HOw much smaller
How much smaller will a loose stone look set after using the stone holder to judge size? I figure since the stone holder holds it higher then it appears bigger...

I think that really depends on the setting. There isn't really one answer, you know? Different prongs/bezels/heights etc. will do different things to the same stone.

I think if a stone is set in just a stone holder, all you basically see is the stone itself - so....depending on the setting - maybe it will look BIGGER? Like this much Bighug bigger!

I'm no help whatsoever - but it's still early Big Grin

RE: HOw much smaller
just assume that it will be somewhere in between the ring holder look and the look when it's loose in your hand? I dunno.

RE: HOw much smaller
That sounds pretty much spot on BMV. Smile I like low settings personally, and don't have a stone holder (yet), so my stones have looked bigger compared to just sitting on my hand once set. ^.^

I think it really depends on the setting.

This is a 6mm cushion in a halo, but because of the setting looks quite substantial:

and I think a 6mm cushion would look amazing in a LM cold fusion type setting. <<-- that's actually the first thing I was going to make when I first joined BTD over a year ago. I still have CADs from DK for it.
