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
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
