Hi y'all,

I still cannot believe that this really happened to me and would like to thank this amazing PS community for helping me fulfil my diamond dreams... I have been admiring this threat for ages: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/leon-mege-fat-emerald-cut-ring-from-jbeg.194911/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/leon-mege-fat-emerald-cut-ring-from-jbeg.194911/[/URL] , and since the owner of the ring was so in love with it, it would have never come to my mind, that this gorgeous chubby little emerald would find its way to me... Well it is not here yet - it is sitting in Dave Atlas's office but soon it is coming home.

It was like a sign, I stalked the ring on the internet (and was thinking about having something similar made myself) and when I saw a previously unseen picture or two on a profile (different to PS) I decided to comment to the owner's profile asking whether it is the ring from Grace. Starburst was not planning to sell it actually, but we both felt somehow that it is the magic of the moment and the mystery of crossing our paths and since she owns another gorgeous piece from Grace that she wears all the time, she decided to part from Kruppy.

To describe the specs I will copy them from starburst's post:

1.81 G SI1 emerald cut diamond, completely eye clean
7.74 x 6.74 x 4.12 mm
0.36ctw trapezoid side stones
set in a Leon Mege platinum setting with double claws...

...and add some of her unposted pictures... this diamond might be far from 'perfect' with her huge table and little beauty marks, but she has so much personality and character and the Leon Mege setting is just the perfection as usual. I cannot believe my second preloved PS ring is on its way to me!

Thanks for watching... will post own pictures once the ring is here

Ladies thank you so very much :) @diamondseeker2006 @pearaffair @PintoBean @Resonance.of.life @LLJsmom

I really love this community - it has brought me so much joy (and knowledge) and it is amazing feeling to know there are others who share the passion (madness?) and understand :love:

I cannot wait to get her on my finger. Kruppy was a name chosen by starburst and I think it is a perfect match as well. She got later this amazing ring: http://www.jewelsbygrace.com/sold/2-50ct-cushion-shaped-rose-cut-diamond-halo-ring-gia-h-si1#.WCGe4WNeDVo ... and this album makes me drool: https://jewelsbygrace.smugmug.com/SOLD-Jewels/250ct-Cushion-shaped-Rose-Cut/ ... another stunner.

This lady has serious jewellery taste :) and so does Grace.

I LOVE that emerald :love: I am slightly jealous! :lol:

That Rose cut is just stunning as well - I really was not a fan of them in theory, but some of them posted on here just look shimmery and amazing :sun:

Both of those rings are gorgeous. Ya'll are 2 lucky ladies.

Am I right that she named Kruppy after Elizabeth Taylor's monstrosity?

@OooShiny I never thought it will be for sale... just took the courage to write starburst when I saw a picture previously unseen (I thought she might work for Grace or something). I even had pics of it in my mobile, I think that broke the ice :)

With rose cuts - they were never my style and most still aren't BUT I have seen some I would resell all my other jewellery for :love: ... so a rose cut is definitely on my wish list (although my budget first needs to recover :bigsmile: That cushion on some pictures really makes my knees weak, and at 2.5 ct and H SI1 it was an amazing price for the ring. I am so happy it is with someone who truly loves it...

@Emeraldcutlover thank you so much!!! Your LM is a different league :) but I love the proportions of this ring, that is for sure... I feel very happy to own a second preloved LM PS piece :))) cannot wait for it to arrive. Good luck with your sale, may your ring find its home as well!!!

@LawmaLlama yes, she called her based on the Krupp Diamond... it is a much smaller version, therefore Kruppy :) but perfection comes in all sizes. I first did not feel like keeping the name, but it stuck on my head/heart ever since...

and @ all of you - thank you so much for the congratulations, I am happy and feel very lucky, since I am sure if starburst posted the ring for sale officially it would maybe be gone without me having a chance to buy it since many people loved that ring so much... So I feel like it really was destiny :)

I like to think I am a man grounded in science and with a healthy disbelief in any nonsense, but sometimes it does seem like the universe is setting something up without you knowing it until you're meant to :D :lol: I think this is one of those times!


I would love to see some rose cuts in a solely candle-lit room - if they were cut to maximise that sort of light return, they must look lovely after dark :sun:
