    I wasn't looking to buy a new diamond, but this stone was haunting me. I've noticed that certain jewelry or gemstones will call to me more than others. I tried talking myself out of purchasing, but finally gave in to YOLO. I was concerned at first with the low color rating, but am so beyond pleased with everything about this diamond. It faces up quite white, but is romantic and beautiful when it shows it's champagne color.

    What a great show of the ST colour!

    I am noticing the small Paraiba in your avatar. Is it still around? I am wondering if you find the colour works with the ST. Difficult to get the two 'ingredients' together anywhere!

    It is still around! I don't get rid of jewelry. Figure I'll eventually have a daughter in law, grand-daughter, great grand that will be happy I held on to everything :)

    Your diamond is so gorgeous and the color gives it a soft, vintage feel. It must throw off amazing pastel rainbows!

    Love this so much!! :love: It's perfect. I'm so glad you made a thread (and you are reinforcing my determination to one day get a (sadly much smaller) cushion for a RHR!)

    One of the most beautiful cushions I have ever seen!!! :kiss2: The facets, the crystal clarity, the rainbows!!!! I also love the simplicity of the setting - it really allows the stone to SHINE. What size is your finger, and what are the dimensions of the stone??

    It demands your attention. It’s a very beautiful cushion. It’s got such presence. The solitaire setting really suits it.

    Beautiful, that stone was calling me too (sadly my bank balance said no ;)2). To my mind it's perfection! Interesting to see the pic with your other diamond as well. Do you have any plans for setting or will it stay as is?

    Well, it was tough to decide between this or HULK. The green glow was fascinating on the other stone and the faceting was gorgeous. In the end, I wanted a different shape diamond than I already had and the clarity was impressive. :)

    Not sure. It's going to stay a solitaire for at least a couple years. I do like how it looks on it's own. If I did change the setting, I'd maybe do a 3 stone. Either keep it simple and traditional with tapered baguettes/half moons/traps...or maybe do color diamonds on side to contrast? (Yellow or brown?)

    Or maybe even have a jacket made so I could wear it on it's own or with more. I do really like the look as a solitaire. Nothing else to detract or distract from the stone itself.

    It looks beautiful as a solitaire, the perfect size so I cannot say I'm surprised!
    A 3 stone would be amazing too!

    *Drool* :drool:
    What are the measurements of this beauty? I’ll be honest, the S-T color isn’t nearly as bad as I thought. It looks gorgeous! Plus, there’s something so romantic about those low colored diamonds. :mrgreen2:
