    hypermom, thank you so much! I also love the lower colors--and feel so lucky to have this one. Wish I had appreciated the lower colors earlier. :)

    @sarahb, this stone is stunning. I love warm stones and this one is so buttery and sparkly. You have a beautiful jewelry collection.

    Bonfire, thank you for your kind comments!:kiss2:

    Yes, it is a 2 tone, with 18k yellow on a plat shank..& I love the 18k gold.

    Yes, the light play with this cut is spectacular, no doubt. @diagem rocked it for sure! CvB made the setting, & since it was an unpleasant experience & dredges up unpleasant memories, I just don't dwell there. Nothing different than the other negative experiences & testimonials that are here...same stuff, just different day/different client.

    Health has been ok despite the few rocks in the road...much to be thankful for, thank you!!:wavey:

    Thank you so much @Natylad, it really is! The light on the porch is the key IMHO on those video's. Its a pentagon shaped porch, closed off on 1 side of the 5--so you are almost surrounded by incoming indirect light.

    And dear sweet, little Jack, he is something...thank you. He's the last of our 3 Musketeers....Pepsi (the queen) was the first on the left, King in the middle, and then Jack on the right...

    @Alex T, you are so kind, thank you! I'd never seen frenchie's before IRL, but loved the FC eternities here on PS & IG. Once the shank direction was finalized, I thought maybe this would scratch the FC eternity itch.:) I agree, the contrast works well, thank you!

    Oh my, thank you so much @OoohShiny! Those videos would not have been possible without the light on the back porch...and that awesome AVC cut!

    For the FC's, interesting question. For me, size would be the main predicate for this cut as far as fire/performance/chunkiness is concerned. The smaller sides perform differently than the larger sized FC's in the shank. Not bad, just different, ie the flashes are smaller. If I where to order a suite for a ring, I'd go as large as I could with this type of cut, as I like broader flashes. I think you'd be able to appreciate the performance better with a larger vs smaller stone size, it just depends on what tickles your fancy.

    I also looked at a 2.59 AVC..it was a different flavor in that it was a K with strong flour. Different stone, different flavor. The size component & performance compared with that 3.0 N, really signed the deal for me. Loved the N color & larger flashes. I also own a 1.0 AVC E as a pendant--which I choose because I wanted a small little headlight on my neck and it rocks. Again, different performance/different objective with the stone choice.

    Yoram Finkelstein of https://gemconcepts.net cut the sides, he is a PS member & posts as @diagem.

    Simply gorgeous, the stone, the setting, everything. This place has really brought these beautiful, previously thought of, “lower” coloured diamonds to the forefront, and rightly so. Wear it in health and happiness for many years @sarahb

    Your diamond looks amazing in those videos! I know what you mean about diamond performance being so different in different kinds of setting. I noticed with my own chunky old cut that when it had an enclosed basket (like your current setting) the contrast was much more than when I saw it loose. So all the faceting was more obvious. I like that look a lot, it's really complimentary to chunky cuts.

    Your ring is one of my favorites! I love how the two-toned metals really bring out the buttery color of your gorgeous stone. I don't think there is another setting that is more stunning than this one is for your AVC.:love:

    This is so gorgeous and can I just say while I was mesmerized watching your ring twinkle on the video, the twinkle of your wind chimes brought a smile to my face! What a lovely thing!
    Congratulations on your ring and best wishes for your happiness!
