<admin please move if this is the wrong subforum>

I found Jessie Kuruc by chance on Instagram when I was procrastinating one night. She is a wedding photographer and artist who just started to paint diamonds and rings as part of her services, and I immediately reached out to her. She has a wait list, and I've waited patiently! I wanted her to paint in watercolor my engagement ring stone, and two other stones. All three are antique diamonds.

She is done with one and starting on the second. I couldn't wait until all are done to start this thread.

Sketching out the 4.08 carat antique emerald cut:

Huge fan of hers too. She does oil paint, I think? On canvas. And I've asked for prices... They're out of my budget! Jessie's are watercolors on paper, and much more budget friendly :)

Edith, the 2.2 carat old European cut I've never seen loose. She's in an Edwardian setting.

I JUST saw this on your IG account and am in loooove with what she created for you! I am reaching out to her for a commission. I hope it's in budget. :naughty: I also looked into Angie Crabtree and couldn't afford her. :(

Angie Crabtree has some of her paintings made to laser paper....those are much more affordable. They sell like hot cakes though! Still pricey for a small 8x8 - $60 I beleive, but we are all diamond nuts , aren't we? :loopy:
The water color paintings are lovely!!! I may have to inquire down the road too !

It doesn't seem in proportion and couldn't it be any old diamond - up close and personal photographs of the actual facets would be a better investment IMO

You're rude. They aren't of "any" diamond. They ARE of my diamond. The proportions may not be exact, but you go find the million "any other diamonds" with a facet pattern like mine.

Thanks ya'll. I definitely recommend her. She just posted on snapchat her PAGES long wait list, so if you're interested, sooner is better. More pictures! All three of my commissions are on their way!

This is SMTB, not insult the art I just voluntarily paid for because you deemed it isn't a good "investment". How sad of you. Do you walk around judging everyone's purchases? Then way of thinking?

You must be so darn happy with your own life.

Thank you for standing up to Sphene. This poster has been particularly abrasive of late.

Some people internet bully because it's the only time they feel strong-- behind a screen, and anonymously. Happy people do not go on the Internet just to talk smack.

Now THIS is my kind of art! :love: :love: :love: I'm dying over these!! It makes me want copies! I doubt my "boring" MRB would be nearly as gorgeous as your old stones - HA!

Seriously, I would love to own copies of this set! I'd put them in my bedroom -- sweet dreams, indeed! 8)

How will you display them? Ugh! ** I need, I need!! ** :love: :cheeky: :love: :cheeky: :love:

We need more pics of these once they're displayed!! :appl: :appl:

Git on her wait list! Like yesterday! She can paint your whole ring, and even does calligraphy if you want.
I haven't quite figured out how to hang them. My fiancé has a lot of art hanging up around the house as is. Am I allowed to kick out his giant Pink Floyd painting from our couch area? :naughty: I thought our bedroom, but we aren't in there a lot other than for sleeping :blackeye: gotta move a few things around!

Oh, I don't want mine done -- I want old cuts! HA! I'd replace the Pink Floyd with the set of three... lovely! :bigsmile:
