Here it is..........finally!
1.4ct, 7mm stone, H, SI1.... sparkles with chunky facets. It's at least 90yrs old (ring and diamond) and it's a tranny. I was thinking of changing the setting to the 2620 or a Single Stone one, only because it is plain from the top view, but I love the fact that it's almost 100 yrs old and it's original to the stone. It's uncertified, I didn't want to disturb the setting. Jeweler believes the color and clarity might be higher/better than stated. It has a lot of fire and looks like a white dot on my finger / much sparkle. I wasn't planning on an antique stone, but I definitely was not in love with any modern cut stones. Of course I love ALL diamonds :love: but nothing got me like this one.
Anyway, please give me honest opinions of the stone/ring.....thank you!! :wavey:

Thank you so much! I love how the diamond looks like a drop of water and firey but glassy from certain side angles. I always looked for settings and wrote off old cuts because I never saw one I really liked - i didn't want a small table - and then i came across this and never even heard of trannies. I wasn't going to buy the setting , just the stone, but glad I did. Would you guys ever change your setting? The only thing is this fits perfectly with my ring. I guess I should leave it be then. I just get sucked in with these gorgeous settings i see on other girls :love: with sparkly sides and engraving - so pretty from all angles. U know?

Very pretty, the diamond is just beautiful, especially atop the pink flowers!

I really like the setting, the side diamonds give it some extra bling...and while it is an antique, it has a timeless look to it and there are many 'new' rings with this same look and feel....it is really beautifully done!

I know how you feel though, my e-ring is also an antique and I've thought about changing it out for something fancier...but I hate to do that too....so I am keeping mine as is for now.


Thanks for sharing, it is really beautiful! =) More pics too!

Please dont change it! That setting is beautiful, and i love the profile!!

eta, if you want engraving, perhaps a skilled benchperson can add some to the sides?

First off let me say congrats on your find, that stone is just breath taking, wear it in good health, I don't know if you're still around I sure hope you are. As for you're setting............ I NEARLY FELL OFF MY CHAIR!!! When I saw it. You see my wounderful husband told me he wanted to get me a ring for our 30th aniversary March 18, I politely asked him if it was ok that I picked it out myself (without breaking the bank of course :lol: ) So I searched high and low to no avail, just couldn't find anything I liked. My son's friend offered us a stone he had a half carat f vvs2 stone ( I wanted maybe a 1 carat, but it looked very nice so I agreed) so I decided to have my setting custom made are you ready for this........... Sorry I did not want to highjack you're thread but wow! We have a very similar setting, ok my ring may not be as blingy or breathtaking as yours but I was really taken aback (in a good way) to see that there is a very similar setting out there and it's 90 years old and I thought I was being original. Mine idea actually came from 2 rings i liked and just put what I liked together and came up with this.

Sorry this was so long, congrats again on your find.

Thanks! It looks so bright white on sunny days. Months passed since my orig post....I am thinking about consigning it/selling it only because I think I need a beefier setting and cannot bring myself to alter this original ring......How would I do this?

If you are really wanting to sell it you can consign it with Jewels by Erica Grace or PS will now have a selling forum that should be up and running soon so that might be an option for you too. Its a beautiful ring so I'm sure you will be able to find a buyer :))
