My new engagement ring. The setting is a temp, though the most beautiful temp ever. Caysie sourced the stone for me. It's a GIA J Si2 circular brilliant. The setting is CVBs jovyn in platinum. Caysie had an extra one so she gave me for a song because I couldn't decide on the setting. The stone faces up like a 1.5 so very happy with that. My finger size is a 7.25-7.5. I was very surprised how small the stone looks on my fat fingers. I have been wanting a solitaire for a while now. And this is scratching that itch. Though the size is becoming more acceptable on my hand I will be resetting eventually. Probably a three stone. Anyways...gem ****.

Beautiful Niel! It looks lovely in the CVB setting but I'm sure a 3 stone would help with some finger
coverage...I feel your pain in that respect!

Beautiful ring, Niel!:love: The OEC has such a pretty facet pattern, and I think it looks great in the CVB solitaire until you decide on your reset! I've had mine in a temp solitaire for 4 years next month! The good thing is, we can wear them in the meantime!

It's beautiful. Fwiw I think it has a huge presence as a solitaire and looks perfect on your hand. But then I'm a solitaire girl at heart

Your stone has such a beautiful pattern - I love it. And it's showcased in a gorgeous solitaire. Being greedy, the macaron in one of your shots looks great too!

IMG_20170404_185608_400.jpg IMG_20170404_155053_121.jpg IMG955481.jpg Thanks everyone. It really is lovely as a solitaire don't get me wrong. And it's not even like it's "not me" because it is. I just think it doesn't look complete right now.

Everyone who commented on the facetting patter is right it's stunning. I had only seen 2 old cuts in person before I bought this ring. One was my sweet momma's and hers is 36 points. The other was an o-p color that didn't blow me away so I wasn't sure what to think. I was aiming for shape and size and cut and color. I didn't really care if it would end up being an orc or a roundy old minder or a tranny or an MRB, honestly. But now that I have it I totally get the appeal of these babies. My old MRB would pick up the same colors, of course, but in diffuser lighting where my MRB would look like a rainbow of brilliance now the light has more of an area reflect and it ends up looking like a more holographic brilliance. I don't even know if that makes sense. But a good comparison is painting your nails with a larger sparkle Holo (MRB) vs using Holo powder (older cut) .

Anyways. I've ordered a french cut ruby band in platinum that coming eventually as I ordered it from the UK. So I'll snap pics of the two of those when it comes.

Niel -lovely old cut diamond with a beautiful facet pattern and I cannot wait to see this solitaire with your french cut ruby band. I love a beautiful solitaire ER and while it isn't your forever ring it is sure a nice substitute till you figure out exactly what you want. Beautiful!:love:

"Gem ****" :lol: Every picture is lovely - feel free to post tons more! What a beautiful ring - I'm in love with the Jovyn and get excited every time a new one pops up.

Random question: Are you using an iPhone to take your pictures? If so, what's the secret? My snaps always end up so washed out...

Enjoy that ring, girl!
