    Hi Hi Aussie! Must be something in the air! I'm looking at one too! I've found the YouTube channel by "Good Old Gold" absolutely invaluable for an understanding of this somewhat complex cut. Great eye candy,too! enjoy!

    Advice on selling diamond to upgrade

    There is nothing like the real thing. I mean, would you rather carry a HUGE bouquet of fake flowers on your wedding day, or one, single, perfect fragrant rose? btw, my husband proposed over twenty years ago with a little .48 that I got compliments on all the time. It wasn't even a perfect...

    Your Latest Jewelry Purchases/Things You're Considering....

    Sorry hun, but this is a job for a jeweler...just go to a little local shop, I'm sure they can remove a link or two easily, without charging more than 20 bucks, if that. It looks nice on you!

    Is my setting uneven? Need more opinions!

    I see the gap on the lower right hand side. It seems to me they just need to properly orient the diamond, without needing to recast the setting. And having done that, might also laser in some white gold solder to build up the halo edges evenly. just my 2cents!

    Kashmir sapphire may have been switched.

    How does a crown facet get damaged?

    I dunno, cause I'm not a diamond polisher, but I do know takes a heck of a lot to chip or scratch a diamond. I mentioned in another post I once had to split a garnet. I did it with a hammer on a concrete floor ( long story!) . Seriously, I couldn't damage that thing to save my life...

    This takes LARP to a whole new level.

    The accoutrements aren't really the point, they're just just window dressing. I think the point she's trying to make is about the values. I can see how this is extreme, but it's bound to happen as the pendulum swings in reaction to our world today which is disintegrating into a zombie-like madness.

    Apparently they don't like us....

    @Bron357 what is "BE" ?

    Apparently they don't like us....

    It's because we're educated and they can't pull a fast one. Sorry if that offends, but it's true. A lot of bank gets made on the ignorant. [ Is it oiled, is it heated, is it fracture filled. What's the country of origin? WHAT was it oiled with? etc. etc. examples of questions I...

    Super ideal cut appearing yellow in some lighting

    Yes, the extra rods, and Vitamin A help night vision. Night vision for me is more of an orientation issue...the fact that I can't see landmarks and the horizon as well...that kind of thing. With diamond color, it's not just vision though, it's almost a sixth sense...can't explain it. And even...

    Need help with this square H&A ideal radiant/ princess of hearts ASET

    oh those ideas sound lovely...I totally agree! And I've found bezel settings really cut down on the sparkle! Why hem a diamond in, is my theory! I can't believe the fireball you have. I've never seen anything like it! Aren't you so glad you didn't listen to that jeweler!

    Asscher cut emerald, early pics

    No sweetie, you probably didn't crack the emerald by dropping it even on cement. But let me tell you why...I used to worry about that whenever I dropped a ring...I was like oh no! was that inclusion there before? Did I chip it? dent it etc ect. Then one day, I tried to smash a garnet with a...
