I purchased this beautiful stone from Love Affair Diamonds to copy an art deco men's ring design but have found an antique ring that I'd rather have instead. Wish I could keep both!

The stone is dynamic, lively, bright. . . EGL cert grades it as a Q/R but Erica thought it might be closer to an S/T. . . sometimes appears to me as colorless, sometimes a beautiful pale lemony yellow.

From the original description:
"Gorgeous bright and lively 2.60ct light yellow Transitional Cut diamond. Beautiful cut and bright, happy, sunny color! EGL Q/R, SI1 (totally eye clean). So much sparkle and fire that I had trouble photographing it!"

Diamond measures 8.71 x 8.66 x 5.54mm.

Check out the EGL cert:

Now consigned with Grace and price lowered to $8950:
http://www.jewelsbygrace.com/loose-diamonds/2-01-to-3-00/2-60ct-transitional-cut-diamond-egl-q-r-si1#.Vs4RE_k4G00

Alot of diamond for the money and a beautiful cut. Mounting pictured is not part of this sale.

Absolutely love this! I just worry that the "lemony " color will not be to my taste for an ER ????

When I say lemony I mean that it is a cheery shade and not muddy or dark in any way.

Hi bluelotus, would you say this is eye clean? What setting was it in before it was dismantled? Is that setting still around?

If the halo isn't around, msop is selling hers I think it would fit.
