I just got these photos from Jeff. He finished my spinel yesterday.

Here are his comments:
"It is a beauty. I was able to get a great yield thanks to the deep design. Vitals: 8.45mm, 3.52ct, clarity excellent with only a single inclusion located in the pavillion and not eye visable".

This stone replaces the center in my three stone which is my current avatar. Stone is going to Victor Caner for setting as he still has the ring. I had a custom ring made by him for my diamond.

I have also requested a close-up photo of the stone from Jeff.

You are indeed getting some incredibly beautiful gems and this one, W-O-W! The spinel has such a lovely tone and Jeff's cutting, it makes the stone dance.

Enjoy the phenomenal treasure trove you're building, BrightIce. I am looking forward to seeing pics as each one makes its way home to you.

Wow, that turned out beautifully! I really, really cannot wait to see it set in your beautiful setting. It's going to be a total show stopper. I'm looking forward to the IRL photos when you get it.

Just got another photo :appl:
Jeff says this one appears a little more saturated than IRL but the hand shot is a bit lighter, so it is somewhere in the middle of the two.

Out of curiosity (and if you don't mind me asking!), what was the price range to have your stone cut? I've always been interested in picking out a rough stone and seeing it through.

Many factors determine cost. Gem type, rough weight, characteristics of the piece of rough. what your overall outcome desire is. Color is the biggest factor regardless of which gem specimen you choose.

Bright Ice, I don't know about you, but I'm already coming up with new projects for JW to cut for me. He is definitely a man who knows what he's doing.

Yes it is from the same parcel. Although mine is a bit more saturated, hence the darker color.
