I don't post often but I enjoy seeing all the pieces here so much I thought I should post mine too.
I had been waiting for a vintage/antique heart to come available because hearts are special to me as a romance writer but I love the look of antique cut diamonds with big facets. I was so happy when I found this one, even though it's much bigger than I was expecting.
I chose Victor Canera because after looking at his work on Pricescope I felt he was the right vendor for me to trust to just make something amazing based on his own artistic vision. And it turned out great!
My photos can't even really show how great it looks, since I have had it for a couple of days but then just decided I had to take pictures tonight in low lighting. Hopefully this gives you an idea and I can put more photos up tomorrow. But I love everything about it. The filigree, the milgrain, the perfect bezel, the little heart basket underneath which was a surprise, and the tri-shank,which I wasn't sure about but now see 100% why it really makes the ring. Plus it's so comfortable!
Big thanks to Victor and Tim for making the transaction so easy and comfortable and delivering a perfect ring, and also to Grace at Jewels by Grace for finding this amazing diamond.
Stats!
5.05 carat vintage cut heart diamond, GIA cert K, Si1. Size 7.5, and I intend to use this as a right hand ring.

Thanks for sharing your ring! I admired the design and the ring on Victor's Facebook page. So glad we can admire it from all angles and on your hand. What a piece of art! So romantic and beautifully detailed. The bezel, filigree, diamond cuffs and struts & diamond detail on the shank, the tri-wire shank... It all comes together. I love how your stone takes center stage in this ring. An absolute beauty.

Please post a lot more pics indeed :appl:

Wait, is that the 5 carat honker from Grace? I always hoped it was a pricescoper who bought it !

I absolutely LOVE the design! Wear it in good health!

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments! Yes, it's the stone Jewels by Grace had on their site. It was fun seeing Victor bring the sketch to life. It really was a great experience. I will get more handshots and some sunlight shots, sadly we have been overcast all day here so I'm still waiting for some sunlight. Hope I can get better pics lol. Thank you to everyone who commented, I will try to respond more later.
