Why I don't believe I've seen such questioning in a Show Me The Bling thread before! Do you know where you are, Dreamer? (I thought I'd be SPECIFIC about my comment, as requested so many times in the past.)

REGARDLESS -- INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL stone AND setting -- and phenomenal taste to put the two together in such a perfect combo on your lovely hand. I've bought from Adam w/confidence & didn't need any appraisal to tell my eyes what I like.

ENJOY!!!!!!!!! :appl: :love:

I am overwhelmed and humbled by everyone's compliments- thank you all so much! :D I am out and about with my son this morning and tried to take a couple more pics with my phone.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but I thought I would need to get an appraisal for insurance purposes? I don't doubt that Adam was more than fair in his pricing (he was actually very accommodating when I had considered purchasing another stone that was out of my budget a few months earlier) but I was under the impression that I will need to have the ring appraised before I can insure it. Otherwise I won't even bother doing that.

Anyway thank you all so much again for your sweet comments, and for taking an interest in my stone! I'm not sure these pics elucidate the facet pattern any better, Dreamer, but I will try again with my camera when my son is napping. I'd love to hear what you think!

True! Since you bought the stone and setting separately, you probably don't have an appraisal from the original vendor that came w/the ring that could be used w/an insurance co. I'd insure a ring of that size for sure! Love the new shots! YUMMO!

Just beautiful! Those pictures really show how lovely the cut is. I can see why you love it. For me part of the fun of these diamonds is looking at faceting and comparing them to other examples I have seen. I enjoy these antique stones and love hearing all about them, so thanks for obliging me!

Insurance: if the value is under $5000 you can insure through jewelers mutual with only your sales receipt. Over that amount and you need an appraisal. Other insurance companies may have different policies.

Thank you all so much again for your kind comments and enthusiasm. I am a bit starstruck by all the posters who have commented on this thread- I don't mean for this to sound creepy, but I have read many informative and insightful posts by several of you and am truly humbled that you like my choice of diamond and ring!

After many frustrating and unsuccessful attempts to use the macro mode of my camera, I'm going to get another one (thank you Deco for starting that thread about cameras a while back and thanks to Haven for your recommendation- I'm getting the Canon Elph 300! Should arrive tomorrow) I will try to take some better photos over the weekend and post them up so you can see the diamond a little better.

I know I keep saying it but *thank you* again to everyone for taking the time to write, not just on this thread but on Pricescope in general. I'm so glad you're not all as lazy/intimidated as I have been for all these years. :)

Beautiful stone and love the rose gold!!

I also have heard that newer stones are being passed off as old here and there, to me this seems like such a strange proposition because if you are an old stone vendor, selling at truly old stone prices which IMO are lower than newer stone pricing, then why would you go to through the trouble to obtain something (maybe at today's higher rough pricing), cut it to look old AND sell it with no branded markup ala AVC. Seems like the vendor would be going through a lot of trouble to not make very much money. I would imagine if you are a businessman truly cutting 'old' stones from newer rough, you'd brand it ala AVC and make that extra markup! But what do I know, not much really.

I asked Adam about my cushion stone and he said sometimes OWD *does* acquire newer cut stones, and that the owner can usually tell when he buys. They thought my stone was truly an old cut because it's a little wonky, not perfectly round or cushion and even has some interesting corner wonk where one tiny area just comes out slightly. I asked because my stone is also crazy symmetrical to my eyes. In any case, I really didn't care if it was old or new cut to look old, only that the price was what I would expect for an old stone vs a new stone, and that it was beautiful.

Anyhow, love the new ring, fantastic job!!

Hi again everyone! :wavey:

I'm back with more pics as promised. Still not the best quality, unfortunately. First, a few shots of the ring alone (btw my camera is red so that's why there are some crazy reflections in some of these shots)

Gorgeous photos! I thought I remembered that you also have a killer OEC.

Your cushions is really lovely. Do you have any idea of its color?? I am just curious :))
