    I was searching GOG for ovals to help out another poster when I came across this:
    Octagon brilliant!

    This would be TDF, especially "on point" in a bezel setting! I''ve never seen that cut before and just thought it was pretty awesome. It''s kind of like the Princess of Hearts, but with the arrows rotated with respect to the edges of the stone.

    I saw that a little while ago and seriously if I had the spare $$$ I would entertain buying it. It looks so pretty [​IMG].

    I noticed as well it was an Isee2 I thought they only cut RB''s? but obviously I was wrong, just saw as well they cut Princess cuts as well, either way it looks interesting.

    I saw that when I checked GOG for ovals. My first thought was, "That''s not an oval." My next thought was, "Wow. That''s better than an oval!"[​IMG]

    Buddha Cut Image (the site has other rarely-seen cuts as well, how neat!)

    Wow, how interesting! I love unusual cuts. I almost decided to get a Flanders or Lucere for my engagement ring before I fell in love with the ACA princesses.

    Wow, that is so beautiful; I have never seen anything like that before! I wonder how you would set it?

    Grrr..I hate you people! I am having enough trouble making decisions between things I already know exist! Do you have to introduce more ideas??!![​IMG]

    I second the other girls, this would make the most amazing bezel pendant..

    Yes, I was thinking either a custom octagonal bezel somewhat like LaurenThePartier's Asscher ring, either in a ring or pendant.

    Too bad I don't have an extra $9k or so hanging around!

    Not to rain on the parade because I DO think it''s gorgeous, but I would think it would look very much like a round once it''s set...

    Even in a bezel setting? I think a well-made bezel would bring out its angles.

    It is pleasing
    Here is an idea without a bezel - you could touch say 4 of the 8 points
