Love 'em! I'm delighted to see more people cutting antique-style stones: I hope this is a trend that's here to stay.

Very nice, much nicer than radiants for me, though apparently this cut style won't show as much saturation, based on the write up. I would hate to sacrifice that in a colored stone. I would like to see them in person to know for sure if the cut quality was worth the loss of apparent saturation.

As a note, I would prefer a simpler presentation on the website so the consumer can more easily find pertinent information like price. Just some feedback!

The. Most. Beautiful. Reproduction. Cuts. Being. Sold. Today.

People want to have it both ways- a "reproduction" cut but one that's "tweaked" to have a culet the size of a pinprick.

No, these things don't go together.

And a lot of people are being confused about what these cuts actually looked like, what's good about them, and how they should be re-made.

DBL, FTW, hands down.

I agree. I love these -- they really do capture the spirit of an old cut. Beautiful diamonds, David!

Edit: I love the culet. I love the soft corners. I see they are cut by Yoram F., who I think posts here as Diagem http://rockdiamond.com/index.php/je...t-yellow-double-decker-historic-cut-gia-r4069

I have seen these in person, they are D-LISH!

If I ever have the budget for one I'm going for a brownish yellow, the brown really gives them a yummy honey color!

They really are beautiful in-person! I'm not a cushion person at all and I thought they were lovely ::)

ITA on the brown, too!

Much appreciated DD!
We are working on a revised format as you read this- one that brings the price and vitals to the top of the page.

Correct Lula, DiaGem is Yoram F, the same one that posts here- a very gifted cutter, by any standard!
