Bit inspired from the forum here as well as Ive only one ring in yellow gold Im actually thinking about to set a cushion gem for a silver color men's ring. In platinum or white gold. Im not sure witch gem I will choose as I like both of them. It will turn out when the project becomes more concrete I guess. So far I imagine only a simple design, something in the direction of the example pic, with the stone set north-south and set somehow like on the pic or with 4 prongs.

I love these and I love Hemmerle! Great inspirations
Hahahaha! Yes, Hemmerle was my (distant) inspiration for the chrysoberyl above, too. Figured I'd never get that 15-ct unheated Burmese blue on my own, or the high six figures to buy one of their rings :) So chrysoberyl it is!

I do like their "older" stuff and not so much the open-work, wrought-iron look. But I love their cool alloys and went with green gold for mine because it's more bronze-like than yellow gold. I love the idea of setting a crazy-nice stone very simply in a non-traditional metal that will develop a patina -- but nobody's gonna do that for me.

My dream is this some day. With a cushion, I would not make it too geometric. I'd go very thin to almost invisible bezel, and very soft contours from outside to the inside of the ring. And way thicker around back of the ring so the taper is gentler. Yes I know it's a man's ring. I would also hope to match the tone of the stone to the tone of the metal as closely as possible -- I think that almost-monochromatic look would be cool. And timeless.

Thank you very much for the detailed inputs! Your right, I also would like it way thicker and more equal in thickness around the ring. Its just a sample pic (didn't find something better in a few minute search) and more or less just should show that I would like something simple looking. No additional gems or detailed tiny texture work in the metal.
For the grey spinel with he's roundish corners probably a bezel setting looks better. For the sapphire a 4 prong setting could be also a possibility. As Ive no experience in such designing stuff and never have rings and those metals around me I need to see that in person. Especially for the color and texture of the metal Ive to have that stuff in my hands to compare it directly with the gems to get bit a feeling for it.
If I find a metal for that monochromic look would be great! Already curious how that one will look beside different silver color metals. Really need to see that in person to get a taste.

I would think matte-finish platinum would be the grayest -- that's what I would use for that gray spinel.

This thread is such a pleasant distraction. Everyone has such beautiful projects they are working on and have received :)).
I have this black opal from Jordy that I want to send to a local artist to set in a three stone with the purple garnet sides. It’s a roval and I can’t decide whether I like it better orientated east/west or north/south. What do you all prefer?
East/West:

North/South:

That color combo is dynamite! Absolutely love it!
