I am so excited to share my new addition! It just came yesterday and was able to take a few shots this morning before heading out to work. I am going to wear this as a RHR and bought it for myself to celebrate the decision to go back to work full-time after working part-time for the past 17 years in order to raise my two kids (they are still in high school but require less time from me right now...) I never though I'd buy a 5-stone ring for myself and have simply enjoyed seeing everyone else's on PS, but when this AVR came out, it pushed me over the edge.

So here it is: AVR 5-stone band from Good Old Gold. Size 5 1/2. 1.33 tcw. The setting is platinum and custom made by Vatche--it is beautiful. Having never seen an August Vintage cut stone in person, these stones blow me away. The light return and beautiful faceting...I am beyond happy! This satisfies my yearning for a solitaire OEC for a while (still would like one one day but haven't found the right one yet).

Wow, that looks amazing. I did inquire about a 5 stone ring with AVR's and in size 5.5. That gives me a good idea of the size on the band on my finger. What color/clarity stones are they - F/G VS?

I would love to hear your comments on how this cut compared to a traditional RB since you have both now :))

Gorgeous!! My first thought is that it looks much bigger than 1.33 carats.

Do you have any profile shots?

I was dearly hoping that a Pricescoper would get either an AVR or AVC five stone so we could hear their opinion. Congratulations on being the first! It's really lovely.

Holy crap that is AMAZING!! Looks perfect on your hand!

BTW, is your nail polish from Sally Hansen? I think I have the same exact one on my nails right now...

Hmm...I thought I just submitted a post but it did not show up, so here is my second try:

Thanks for all the nice comments...I am thoroughly enjoying the ring and spent much of the day staring at it--so much for work! ;-)

@pinkprashu: The color of the stones are G-H and VVS-VS.

As some of you know, I purchased a 5-stone ring from IDJ back in June for my mom (1.56 tcw). I originally hoped for 30 point stones as I thought the size of hers was nice, but AVRs are currently not being cut in that size, so I would have had to go up to 34 points which is much more expensive. Since the setting is so low, it ends up that the stones actually give the perfect spread for my size finger so I am not disappointed at all. Unfortunately, I do not have any photos of my mom's IDJ ring as I gave it to her before having a chance to. I will "borrow" it this weekend if I can and take side-by-side photos and do a comparison for those of you interested. I am quite anxious to see how they look next to each other!

Anyway, thanks for looking and I will hopefully get some more photos up in a few days!
