    hi all...............my EC upgrade is not going ver well as there is nothing worth having out there --yet......... so i am toying with a new stone: (keeping my EC) either a round brilliant of roughy 2.5 to 3. plus or a square cushion. my budget would be about $30 to 40. any good hunters see anything good lately? it would be a bezel set very antique-y mounting so the color is not mega important

    Oh, WS.....I''d take a cushion over an RB any day! RBs are so...well...predictable!

    I gather you''re not an antique freak? If I were looking for an antiquy looking honker, I''d head over to Singlestone or Nelsons''s Rarities and look for the "real thing"!!![​IMG]

    (Just my opinion, of course....[​IMG])

    Yowzers, that is an amazing stone. Perfection. [​IMG][​IMG] There is a nice 3 carat Ideal RB F VS2 on BN, looks nice but may be more than what you want to spend. I can''t give a link, but saw it earlier today.

    I think that could be gorgeous, would you make it a rhr? What about doing one of those gorgeous antique type settings? I love your current ring so I am happy for you if you can keep it!

    OMG, WS if you don''t snap that WF stone up soon, someone else will!!! VERY soon!!!

    I echo Widget''s suggestion, check out http://www.singlestone.com. Some gorgeous honkers there. I think there''s a 1920''s 4-carat H cushion ring available, as well as some lower color honkers above 3.5 carats.
