I've been waiting to post this until the stone was cut and videos were taken, so ITS TIME!

I've wanted an Octavia for years now. I got a moissanite "Octavia" and love it, but have always wanted the real thing. Sadly, the cheapest Octavia is 11-12k, which I just cant do.

Enter Jonathan from Distinctive gems. I spoke to him about trying to source an asscher with a small table and large depth. He shared that he was in the process of designing a new cut that combines the visible steps of a traditional asscher with the fire of cuts like octavia.

He sent me these renderings and I basically died.

So I took a leap and put a deposit down for the FIRST one to be cut.

A few days ago, Jon got my stone! Here are the videos he posted on IG: https://www.instagram.com/p/CPHM-yXjuLD/?utm_medium=copy_link

And https://www.instagram.com/p/CPKO4-Gjq-D/?utm_medium=copy_link

He also sent me these: https://api1.v360.in/viewer/265_LGAVASSCHER175GVVS2







And LOOK at this!!!!

I just freaking cant. Its perfect and I Iove it so much. IMHO it has the fire and angles i love about the Octavia plus the visible steps that make me love traditional asschers.

I cant wait to see it IRL and cant thank @Rhino enough. My dream asscher stone is a reality!!! Obviously I'll post a thousand more pics/videos when I get it, but thought after weeks of keeping it under wraps it was finally time to share w PS. Thank you to @YadaYadaYada for helping me offline :) and @Simple and Sparkly for being helpful thinking through potential options

Aww that means a lot coming from you!!! I was super tempted to spend the $$ on an octavia diamond, but took a leap of faith with this one instead (especially bc Jon said I wasn't under obligation to buy if I saw it and fidnt like it since it was the first one). I am so happy with the outcome. It's not an Octavia, but I love it in the same way and for the same reasons (at least so far from pics). You were so so so helpful!

That stone looks awesome. The moissy you currently have looks nice on you proportion-wise so when you substitute the moissy with that awesome diamond then your ring will be out of this world.

We are impatient on your behalf.

You are so lucky! I am going to be extremely jealous next to the one I got. Congrats! I know you have wanted something like this for a long time. Finding this shape is so rare. It is great that Jon was able to do this for you!

He's going to be cutting a lot of these, so you can buy one too! #enabling

Of course I had to go and put mine in a bezel! I am waiting for pics on my setting. I am hoping the cup improved the color and window. We will see. I am more excited about the colored stone right then the ring and it was like maybe 20% of the cost in comparison. Ugh! Should of held out a little longer.

Your stone is gorgeous. More pics when you can. They are slightly fuzzy. Outdoors would be good so we can see the cut!
