Just simply breath taking......
@Big Fat Facets - Cute kitty in your avatar! Thanks for the nice comments. I’m not particularly drawn to halos either but the EC looked spectacular in seller’s videos and the halo to center well balanced, gut told me yes. The EC band is shared prongs and honestly personally I like smooth prong-less rings more so sadly this ring doesn’t get much play time
I totally hear you about getting too many ideas for projects when hanging out around here! This can be a dangerous place! You know, I think many of us figure out what we like through trial and error. There are so many great styles and it can be very scary committing to a design we can't try on first. That is why I still haven't set my AVR! Thanks for the info on the halo ring! You were so smart and lucky to grab that one! All three of your rings (and the eternity) are so different and wonderful! I hope they bring you much enjoyment!@diamondseeker2006 Hi! You remember my dilemma! While the AVR was perfect in so many ways, I couldn’t get past the color and in that weight/size. First hand experience for me to learn that AGS grading for color is less stringent than GIA. The GIA K plus medium blue fluor probably doesn’t hurt with the tint perception. Regarding the Asscher style cut/EC ring, I bought it off of Instagram from a nice seller SinCityFinds. It looked so delish in her pics and videos. I had it appraised and it was estimated 2.09ct L color, estimated as L because it was mounted, hand forged in platinum. It’s in the art deco style, seller thinks it’s a remake, not original Art Deco. There is an engraving/inscription of the weight of the diamond on the shank. The 9 in the 2.09 looks like ”9” vs “q” which i found interesting as a clue to its origin and/ or maker.
I had to take a break from PS because I was starting to cook up too many bling projects. I’m happy that you saw my post!
