I love your set SS - you did such a good job of fusing the old with modern Image

I have just been turned on to old cuts -- and you all have some of the most beautiful rings out there!!!!

I posted this question on another thread, but I know the antique cut experts are hereImage

I have just started my search & found this ring oec .

I''m a getting ahead of myself, wanting to buy one of the first ones I find?Image

I keep coming back to this ring.  It has a high carrot weight and a warm color.
Am I missing something horribly wrong with it??  The price is so much lower than I have been finding.

Any thought & honest opions would be greatImage

Thanks PSr''s

What is the return policy like?

I suggest you start a separate thread with this question, you will be likely to get more of a response! Image


ETA: Softly softly that stone is STUNNING!Image

How did I miss this?!?!? I voted OEC, but I also like transitional cuts.

I have a teeny, tiny pair of OECs--or possibly OMCs--to add. They''re set in this locket that my grandfather gave my grandmother in the 1910s, and that my grandmother gave me when I was a girl:

I can't recall if I already posted my transitional stone earlier in this thread.  I have been contemplating how to set it since I bought it in November during a trip to NY.  I saw something a few weeks ago that I thought would be my choice........until yesterday, when I met up with the Boston PS gals and did a little browsing. 

During our travels yesterday, we saw this setting.  When we slipped my loose stone into this setting, I knew this was the perfect choice.  With plenty of agreement from the PS contingent, I had it set right then and there and am finally wearing my "tranny"!

The stone is .98, and is EGL-graded as L, SI1
