    I ordered my first elongated antique cushion from Wuzhoe Zhengyon. They are $44.50 per carat. I think it's very pretty but I'm not an expert on cut quality. Let me know what you think. It's a cellphone picture. I'll have to take some pictures with my DSLR IMG_20190311_120232.jpg

    I think it’s gorgeous! What color is it? Do you have a link to the vendor?

    I think that’s the perfect size too. A pendant would be really pretty! I don’t wear much aside from rings and earrings occasionally. Most of my stuff is cheap/statement pieces that I swap out according to my outfit.

    Ummm that stone is AMAZING!!!!! Wow! And for the price????? It's insanity. This is one of my all time favorite cuts in moissy. Somehow the chunky rainbow fire is just epic.

    Side note: I really want one but idk what I would even do with it. My ring wish list is a mile long (seriously...over 20 pieces), and NOWHERE on it is there an elongated ACC. Lol!

    I understand! I want so many different cuts but I'm not sure what to do with them! I did just make a beautiful pendant for my daughter. Id love an ACC ring but I think a pendant would be better right now.

    I keep looking at pics of your stone, and I swear it looks bigger than 8x7 :geek2: How do you plan on setting it?

    Feel free to post more pics! :lol:

    Buying from Chinese vendors is a real addiction!!! Lol how exciting you ventured out to a new vendor and got an awesome deal!!!

    I contacted them about pricing and also asked if they do rings. I was told they have a 20 piece minimum for custom rings, so that’s out. Lol!

    Great source for loose stones though!

    What do you guys think of this cushion? I am curious because East/West Gem company calls this their antique elongated cushion. I see the long thin culet but it doesn’t have the chunky facet pattern. Looks kind of crushed ice in some way but they call it their antique cut

    This one too. Someone posted it on Reddit from Yasmine Co. and it is their elongated brilliant cut. I thought it was a diamond at first. Doesn’t look like the typical splintery brilliant cut. Just curious....

    I contacted a few vendors about making a simple pendant setting. I would love an ACC ring but I don't know how many rings I need...

    I will post more picture soon:)

    I really like the second one, especially the warmer color. Very interesting...It does look a lot like a diamond too!

    Those are both very pretty! It definitely looks different. Not the chunky faucets I've seen. This is the first ACC I've seen in person. I only learned of this cut after joining this site!

    IMG_0606~2.jpg it may be a little dirty with fingerprints. My local jeweler will set it into a setting for $50. The price of this stone was much less than other companies. It's very pretty! I really love this cut!

    Same! But I don’t want to pay to have it shipped to another Chinese vendor for the setting. And I can’t afford a custom setting from a NA company :oops2:

    They've upped their prices to $60 per carat. Still the cheapest I've found.
