Three Stone Setting Profiles
I have seen a lot of beautiful profiles for three stone rings where all the stones are round. However I am thinking about using half moons as my sidestones (with a cushion) and it seems like the few half moon settings I can find are very ... industrial? Is there a reason for this?

This is the best one I have found. I still think the basket is a bit clunky and awkward though, like how the half moon prongs just appear out of nowhere, and I would like the whole thing to look a little more pretty and soft nstead of harsh. Or somehow more special and decorated instead of so utilitarian.

Have you guys seen any amazing half moon settings? Or post your favorite three stone profile photo in general!

I haven't seen anything real different with that style either. The best I know of is by Leon Mege.

Yep that is the one I had in mind too @MrsK! I think if you wanted a swoopy or detailed gallery with half moons you probably could, but they would have to be a pretty good idea so you have enough room for the fun details!

Omg, yes! And it kills me that my DH works with the family; makes me wonder why some bartering can't be done! Crackup

RE: Three Stone Setting Profiles
Thanks JuBe! That's beautiful.

Here's a bad mock-up of what I'd like ... something with the side baskets of the Kwiat baguette setting and the main basket as similar to Hs4s/Kanga's three-stone. (Thanks ladies for all the inspiration!!!)
