I need to back away from the buy button for a while but I had been pondering this stone and setting for a while and finally loss the will power battle.

It’s a VS U-V Old Mine Cut 1.92 carat solitaire in one of Alex Parks’ simple, classic settings. Full bezel to protect the thin, frosted girdle of old which I love. I’ve reset all my larger stones into bezels over the years - they feel very wearable and very protected from knocks and the like.

Is very simple, brushed/stone texture on a knife edge band.

Setting cut aside as a given (who wants a wonky, badly cut, loop sided rock!?) clarity is my bugaboo. Color can be all over the shop as long as a stone is clean and crisp.

I can’t wait to see this on natural sunlight or under the candlelit it was cut for all those years ago.

Had to share with all me SMTB buddies - it’s just a wee bit different from the norm and I love it.

I love how the simple setting lets the details of the OMC shine.

wonky, badly cut, loop sided rock!

Of all the OMCs I've ever owned, my absolute favourite was more wonky, "badly cut", and lopsided than yours :bigsmile: I found her entrancingly charming. And I bezeled mine too!

I love your new stone!! She's lovely, full of persoality - I think her imperfections just make her more beautiful :love: Gorgeous colour and perfect setting choice!

She’s wonky but not so much that it distracts from her beauty :) I think ‘wonky’ and see the stones that got hit with the ugly stick! Or where you wonder if the guy cutting it all those years ago had one too many before he started...

That’s lovely. Your niece is very talented. The band is my wedding ring, just a simple 18 k comfort style band bought at a high street jewelry store in Scotland 20 years ago. I just wear it on my right hand and have for years.

Could this ring be any more perfect?? From the facets to the buttery yellow to the rich and luxurious deep gold bezel....It. Is. Perfect.

@missy aw you know Katie, she's stellar and learning, she bought new jewelers tools with her Dad's xmas gift money. xoxoxo u.

to the OP I am sorry if I threadjacked :) my niece is a starting bench person and I do not think that my ring is as awesome as yours especially the bezel, I was just trying to show that is style of 18K ring is very much liked. I LOVE YOUR RING.

‘Endless happiness ’ that’s one of the best descriptions of jewelry, which has no practical value - whatsoever, I have ever heard ❤️

As you know I love your ring and it truly deserves Jewel of a Lifetime too!


Thank you #JOTW! There were some some
stunners on SMTB this week, so this is really special.

This OMC just goes to show that classic and quality never go out of style.

Sharing the Ivy and Rose curved band I grabbed to wear with mellow yellow.

First time buying with I&R, they were great.
