Gene mentioned in another thread that he cut an umbalite garnet to be presented to Neil Diamond at the Grammy Awards. He said that he couldn''t post pics until it was over.

The Grammy''s are over - I want pics!! Pleeeeease!!??

I love Neil Diamond! I''m a huge fan... I''m 40, I like Pearl Jam and Aersomith, but Neil is a class act. So where''s the pictures???? :)

Uh huh, he brags about it, then excuses himself saying it''ll have to wait until the Grammy''s are over. Well, your excuse has just run out and we demand pictures.

Ok, I better not get in trouble here for this. THIS STONE IS NOT FOR SALE, and I won''t cut another one like it.

It was given to Neil Diamond as a gift last week. It''s an Umbalite Garnet (his birthstone), cut with a frosted diamond in the pavilion. These frosted designs are tough to photograph, but the main diamond is frosted, then there is a thin polished facet, and then a very thin frosted outline.

The color on this stone was just fantastic, I bought it with the intention of doing an Asscher cut, since it was shaped perfectly for it, but then this came up, and well, Neil trumped the ladies of Pricescope.

I have to say that the new stone cut reminds me a bit of my new avitar.

What were the dimensions on the stone if you can share? Please don''t tell me it was an 8x8mm! It''s probably the last 8x8 in existance.

The cut is definitely more masculine and fitting for a man. I too am curious about the carat weight and dimensions.
