In time for my wedding the 12th of may 2012, I will remake my e-ring into a three stone ring. Although it is a while left I've started to collect the two new diamonds. My center just arrived which is a cushion from JA. My plan is to make something like this

My center stone:

Cushion brilliant four mains
1.01 Ct
J
VS2
6.66*5.89*3.38

The e-ring has a H&A brilliant

0.45 Ct
H
VS2
4.93*4.90*3.03

I shot some quick pictures in different lightings when it arrived and there is a slight warmth to the J color in some light conditions, in others the cushion remains light and nice whereas the brilliant go dark steelish gray (without camera obstruction). I have pictures where the brilliant is very much darker than it is in these pictures but didn't include them. Even if it is not very obvious in the pictures it is very interesting to see how the difference in cut affects the performance and that the brilliant is not always outshining the cushion.

It sure looks pretty in your pics :lickout:


Are you having a vendor find you matches, or are you hunting them down yourself? Either way I admire your patience! 8)

I have to do it myself sice I live in Sweden and I already had my e-ring. If I had started from scratch then I could have used a vendor in the US. I'm not sure you can even find cushions in Sweden.

It will not be a perfect match since I've mixed H and J but I think seeing it in person that even if I bought a H cushion the difference in cut still would have made that stone stand out from the others.

I took some more photos that I think compliment them both very well

Thanks for the nice comments. Can't wait to have it finished either but I'll have to wait for a year until I can wear it ;( Will start the production somewhere in feb-march.

I've also been eyeing a third stone H SI1, AGS 000, HCA 1.5 however it seem to have a feather that reaches the girdle :(sad JA will have to evaluate it for me
