Oops I did it again. Sorry, not sorry!

Meet “Buttercup”
14k ‘bloomed’ gold, circa 1910, with a 5.3mm old cut. Probably an H/I color as this is whiter than Edwina’s official L. And probably an SI for inclusions visible under 60x, but the kozibe prevents anything seen at 10x so who cares, right? Not sure I should bother with having her graded.

When I opened the box I literally gasped and had to cough. I can’t think of a better name to captures her loveliness. Also the photos cannot do her justice. She is amazing in person.

Thank you! I’m over the moon, and trying to find a similar style pendant setting for Edwina now. My eyes are tired from googling!!!

Yasssss! That’s pretty much the exact kind of thing. It’s hard to find heavy solid ones these days!

I wish I could do photoshop. I’ll have a black silver rolo chain attached to make it a stationary style and layer it with my JPie necklace. Mix&Match!

@canuk-gal I had to do a search on PS for Mc2’s style and boy oh boy that’s some gorgeous work! Only in my dreams, alas!

@whitewave your earrings are stunning! I bet they are light and airy but pack a real punch of sparkle!

Yes friend where are the hand shots??? Come on now you're not a newbie.

Seriously though that diamond is just WOW, the faceting is by far the best I've seen on a ring like this :kiss2:
