I love absolutely everything about your new ring from the choice of a warm AVCOEC to rose gold to a bezel with millegrain. Your ring is exquisite!

Love the warm stone - your ring is gorgeous and I especially like the euro shank. Congratulations and enjoy your beautiful diamond ring.
I am loving the euro shank too. The way it looks, the way it feels... now I want all my rings to be euro shank :)

I love it - classic, clean-lined perfection and a stunner of a stone. I also love the hammered yellow gold band that’s in one of your pics!
Thank you! It’s from single stone in LA. It’s 24kt and the most vivid of my gold pieces!

I’ve always loved the flowery spread of OEC. It’s romantic, whimsical, and special. You know how it is when you can’t stop thinking about something.

There’s a ton of threads spreading the word of Rhino at August Vintage. I popped on his site and see a lovely 0.904 O VS2 European cut and looked oh so clean and had the exact warm hue I’d been lusting over.

Before I dove into PS, you would have caught me thinking “why in the world would I ever want a warm diamond? Who does that?”

Then, I got it. The appeal bit me like a hungry mosquito on a hot summer evening.

I have a bright white G VS1 WF ACA 1.988 as my e-ring and wanted something for either the right hand, or just to wear casually. (It seems I am always on the hunt for a casual ring, at least this is the story I tell myself, lol).

On a whim, I went for it. No ideas on settings (which all know accounts for more than half the battle.) There were a few Stuller settings that were fine, but not exact Rhino gave me some ideas on something simple, bezel, meaty, and rose gold. He ended up designing the “Esti” setting for me and we could just tell it was going to be great!

Here she is. Right on time for Thanksgiving! I know she’s smaller but man, she’s a killer!

Diamond Deets: O, VS2, 0.904. 5.95-5.98 x 4.06mm. AVOEC have sharp + clean facets. So clear you can see them on this smaller diamond! I’m amazed how beautiful this little gem is; she sparkles with the best of them.

Setting Deets: 14kt rose gold, milligrain detail around bezel, euro shank (nice and meaty!), matte finish.

Rhino Deets: amazing to work with. So personal and communicative. Has been my fave vendor to work this thus far. Has great ideas and worked with me on price point. 13/10 would recommend to a friend.

Thanks for letting me share and have a HAPPY Thanksgiving. 6B5EF741-EF40-4994-8B68-1215CB378045.jpeg FFB1368A-3EEB-4A35-A10F-C15DE36F8780.jpeg 9D88E4C9-1AE9-4B7A-9B85-490216DD2483.jpeg CB3048F6-80DE-4954-8364-C9CD8E455078.jpeg 1BC6036F-4F4D-485C-ABDD-8AEC42B6EC94.jpeg D14823D5-7781-41E3-9747-D5133B949728.jpeg

It’s gorgeous! I absolutely love how your ring turned out and it looks amazing on you. :love::love::love:

I totally get where you’re coming from with the warm old cut diamonds (pre PS, I never would have thought I’d want one). I just bought an O colored AVC from Rhino and I love it! I haven’t figured out how to set mine yet but I can’t wait to get it out of that gem box and onto my hand. :mrgreen:

OK could that stone and setting BE any crisper or more perfect?! It's so refined and architectural, and those facets. WOW.

So beautiful! I am quite a fan of AVRs and have an O color one, too! They are beautiful in any color and I love your setting, too!

The rosey matte gold color is superb. The stone is suberb. The setting itself showcases both of those superbly. Well done!!!
