Congrats on JOTW! You know a ring is mind blowing when the original post and the JOTW proclamation both come on the same day. And, boy oh boy, is this ever worthy of it. Your ring is absolutely stunning! :love: I love the gorgeous creamy vanilla color and the size is incredible. I actually have an O colored AVC (though on a much, much smaller scale) and I can only hope it looks even remotely this awesome once set. Damn, you are one lucky lady.

Please, please post more pics. I’m not done drooling yet. :mrgreen:

Wow! Go big or go home! :kiss2: You went big! VC’s bezel is beautiful
Thanks @ Mayk, I too love his bezel!

This is magnificent! Enjoy!!
Thank you @Tourmaline.

Echoing previous comments - Gorgeous! Stunning! Fabulous!!
:love::love::love:
Thank you @EC8.

I was just admiring it on VC's IG and wondering if it belonged to a PSer :kiss2:
Thank you @GlitterInMyHair, it’s kinda funny when us PSers wonder about pieces seen on IG!

Your ring looks incredible!!! They did am amazing job!
Thank you @MeowMeow, Victor does amazing hand crafted pieces.

Oh my goodness.
If OPulent isn't exactly the right word... :love:

Your projects are so often surreal, @bright ice. Perfect blend of stone and setting, perfect meld of colour, perfect shape and faceting...

And you get to look at it every day in-person, you lucky lucky thing!! :bigsmile:
Thank you @yssie, that’s quite a compliment coming from you as your projects are surreal as well. I’m lucky to able look at it every day.

Woah Nellie!! That's a ROCK! It's fabulous! Enjoy every blingy moment. :appl:
Thank you @Rubies-R-Me, it’s definitely a fabulous ROCK! When I first opened the box I was smitten

You already know how much I LOVE your new ring. Your OEC is amazbling in every way. OP for oh pure Perfection. :kiss2:

Wear in good health and blingy joy! You deserve it.:appl:
Thank you so much @missy, you know what I’ve been through getting here!

That stone is just something else. I would also love more pictures, of both the facet pattern and anything that captures the colour! It faces up so white but the colour it seems to have looks lovely... Antique... Not ugly in any way. I think you made absolutely the correct choice to go bigger and own the colour rather than either lose size to get rid of the colour or stay in a range that was clearly bothering you.
Thank you @Lykame, this stone blows me away. It’s an amazing antique diamond and the color is so delicious.

There are no words adequate to describe this beauty, just WOW!! It's perfect in every way. :kiss2: Truly the stuff dreams are made of!
Thank you @ Dandi, it’s my dream diamond for sure!

OMG so stunnnning!
Thank you @MakingTheGrade!

OMGosh!!!!! So beautiful!!!!
Thank you @joelly

WOW, stunning remake! :kiss2: Congrats!!
Thank you @finerthings, it’s amazing what the right setting does for a diamond.

Isn't there a separate thread for royal jewels??
:kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2:
Thank you @MrsBlue, it could have belonged to royalty in its earlier day.

I actually could vomit looking at this. It is bloody AMAZING!
Thank you @Alex T, isn’t it truly amazing?

Gorgeous in every way, congrats!!!
Thank you @arkieb1, so is your honker OEC!

Very beautiful and showcases what so many of us love about the older cuts. Wear it in good health.
Thank you @LisaRN. I’m an old cut lover, wish I could own one of each cut!

Wow, that is just stunning! :kiss2:
Thank you @ForteKitty, I love all of your diamonds! You are one of the long time PSers that contributed to my love of antique diamonds.

Oh, it turned out beautifully! I love that setting showcasing that stone. Truly a perfect pairing - enjoy every sparkle!!
Thank you @MissGotRocks, I’ve admired the setting since @Bonfire got hers. It’s a perfect setting for such a diamond.

Congrats, it’s glorious! I actually saw your video on OWD’s instagram and have it favorited! I’m glad you found your dream ring!
Thank you @shesastunnah.

Seriously opulently gorgeous! That stone in the delicious yellow gold bezel really is just perfection! Enjoy your new beautiful ring!
Thank you @Slick1, YG definitely suits her well.

That is a seventh, seven carat wonder of the world! Wear with pride :)
Thank you @ caolsen, I’m proud to wear it!

So incredibly stunning! WOW!:kiss2:
Thank you @kathley!

Holy crap that’s just insanely perfect in every way. I can’t even... Please add a million pictures!!!
Thank you @mwang05, you have a stunning antique diamond as well.

Stunningly beautiful!:kiss2:
Thank you @Diamond Girl 21.

Oh.My.Goodness...that is the most amazing ring i have ever seen!!! :kiss2:

thank you for sharing and for giving me (and probably others! lol) something to dream about ;)2
Thank you @lynahs1395, I’m happy to share!

Oh my word, that stone is simply stunning. I LOVE the low colors, once they grab you, you're done. And that setting is divine--your ring is perfect in every way. Congratulations! :love: :love:
Thank you @sarahb, yes the lower colors are truly a dream. She’s a total fire bomb too!

Stunning! Congrats! Wow!
Thank you @gregchang35.

Congratulations on a fabulous stone, elevated by the most exquisite setting!
I remember you asking if my cathedral Adriana was comfortable. It’s like wearing satin isn’t it? Enjoy your forever ring, and congratulations on JOTW!
Thank you @Bonfire, I came so close to choosing the Adriana for the OEC. Once I bought the OMC I knew I had to have a version of it. Victor and I communicated on how we could make a new version to fit my diamond, I’m thrilled with the outcome!

Echoing previous comments - Gorgeous! Stunning! Fabulous!!

Thank you @EC8.

Same! I saw it on IG and immediately came to see if it belongs to a PSer. :appl:
Thank you @EllieTO. So funny, I was rushing to get my thread posted before Victor got it on IG!

Thank you @elle_71125, I know I’m a very lucky lady and I don’t take it for granted.
I’m following your AVC project and can’t wait to see your beauty!

That’s another thing I love about working with Victor. He is very willing and eager to collaborate and share ideas, and his creations always have a beautiful aesthetic.
I love how dainty he made your bezel!

Your ring is stunning, @bright ice! I am so happy you found a diamond that you love (and wow, what a beauty!), and Victor's gorgeous setting showcases it perfectly. You and Victor knocked it out of the park, and the result is epic. Feel free to indulge us with photos whenever you'd like!

Your new diamond is stunning! I love the cushion shape and I love its buttery color! And Victor did an outstanding job with the setting -- it shows off the diamond so well. Enjoy!

I’m thrilled to share with PS my new 7.04 ct O-P antique diamond.

Adam at OWD so graciously worked with me to trade my 4.07 J OEC because I purchased it before their trade-in policy changed.

I know some may question my decision to go from a J to an O-P for my ER but the OEC had just enough tint that it kept bothering me. I thought about going higher in color which meant smaller size with additional funds. I’ve also over time developed a love for the lower color antique diamonds. I’d looked at a 3.5 ct Q-R OMC a couple years back but it wasn’t big enough. I kept watching the inventory at OWD and this OMC showed up loose several times but Adam had it set into a simple YG setting and put up videos. I was struck by it so I made contact with him to send it to me for viewing. I was totally enamored, I gasped when I opened the package. It’s a buttery color yet faces up quite vanilla, yet never an ugly color.

While I did love the simple YG setting, I didn’t care for the prongs because it gave it more of a square look. I’ve always loved the cathedral version of the Adriana by Victor Canera. I wanted a very wearable setting yet elegant so I asked Victor to make it in a bezel and I’m thrilled with the outcome!

As always, Victor was easy and accommodating, such a true pleasure to work with him!

I’ll first share it in the setting as it came to me in, then the new.
