This is now "old enough" to settle ;) in a setting ... aprox 4 years ... but what kind of setting !!?? have been searching the internet for similar cut and potensial settings but nope ...8mmx8mm

Those are really nice looking stones.
Make one for it, a gold band around the girdle with the culets pointed left and right, add a nice bail and I think you would have something really cool that would move, show a lot of color and draw a lot of attention. If you wanted to protect the stone then some type of backing or cradle.

Thank you so much Jim :) they are perfectly cut and well polished, in Sweden, yes a band on the middle it must be, and i think it need some more protection.

A cradle would be nice, then it is the cradle that have to move enough to show the colours .

If it is going to moove/spinn inside the cradle .... In my head its complex to make it spinn and beeing protected ;)

Maybe someone have a good about a cradle? :)
