So I don’t know if you guys remember my previous post on my emerald cut ring (https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/6-ct-antique-ec-with-fc-baguettes-kama’s-10yr-anni-upgrade.243524/)

But in that post I had mentioned that I was originally looking to upgrade my 2.5ct old mine cushion with another cushion. I meandered, but couldn’t stop thinking of the emerald, so that’s what I landed with. I kept my old 2.5ct OMC because I couldn’t bear to part with my cushion.

Then, in March of this year I was in LA and met up with Grace from Jewels by Grace for lunch. She brought with her a gorgeous 6.49ct M VS2 OMB that I fell in love with! By the end of that lunch, I knew I couldn’t give that stone back and decided to trade in my cushion right on the spot! However, I wanted the centre facets tweaked just a bit. Grace and I spoke to Anup at Jogani. Anup has a very discerning eye and knew just what the stone needed. He worked closely with his cutter and the resulting stone was HOLY F*CKING SHIT amazing! Sent to GIA and it was so blinding, that it came back as a 6.19ct L!

The beauty about old cuts is that they face up much whiter than modern stones. I cannot tell this guy is an L face up, with just a hint of colour in the body whilst looking at the profile. Typically I wouldn’t consider a cape coloured stone, but this little guy was so incredibly lively and bright - an absolute chunky disco ball firecracker - and I am so glad I took a chance on it!

I sent the stone to David Klass to be set. I wanted a simple repro antique setting in platinum, but with a twist. DK and I worked on this setting and he executed it flawlessly! There are little marquise stones in the ‘petals’ and the milgrain is so fine! I am incredibly impressed with his workmanship and attention to detail!

I suppose I ended up with my cushion upgrade after all! I absolutely love both rings and feel so fortunate and beyond thrilled to have two stunning pieces in my collection!

Absolutely stunning. All of them. They look gorgeous on you.
Do you happen to have before and after shots of the OMC facet tweakage?
DK did a fantastic job on the setting.

Ah. Just. Glorious :kiss2:

Can you share a "before" pic of the faceting? I'm curious about what changed in the tweaking! Fantastic that they were able to achieve the patterning you wanted with so little weight loss!! :appl:

S, you've outdone yourself. And given what I know of the remainder of your collection - that's no mean feat!! :cool2:

Ditto @m-2-b - how in the world do you decide what to wear every morning? :geek2::mrgreen2:

It’s really hard to take a proper comparison pic as I don’t have great pics of the pre-cut. I sent the stone for recut the moment I bought it. This is the closest I could get. Some of the centre facets are tighter and a few of the outer corner facets have been cleaned up a little. Mostly you can see the difference in videos because the facets are not turning on and off at the same time.

Left is pre-cut, right is post-cut and set.
