I have been fascinated by my Nanny''s (grandma''s) 4 plus carat marquis diamond. When she got remarried (my grandpop died when I was 4.... she remarried when I was 16) she got the diamond reset and had a pave band made to match. She was over the other day for Hannukah and I convinced her to let me clean it in the SI US and take pics. Well I learned taking pics is much much harder then I imagined.... I also learned the diamond isn''t as spectacular as I had hoped as it seems to have a fracture( she says she hasn''t taken it off for ANYTHING in 7.5 yrs) and some decent scratches.... also looks pretty low in color. None the less I remember drooling over it as a child and wanted to share it with all of you.
