(take dramatic pause to take in the truth of that statement...)
With that said, I do have a question about fluorescence. Is this appearance typical for a stone with medium blue fluorescence in direct sunlight?
Does it seem over-blue or hazy?
I LOVE the stone and was instantly inspired to create a new ring with it (below)...though a little surprised by this appearance in sunlight.
Maybe something I just need to get used to?
Is this the one from ?
On the design, I would prefer to fill in the 45 degree corners with the darker metal to help define the cut corners better. Also maybe have a "lip" on the top and bottom.
Chicken scratch designs...
It is, actually, a cool look. Fluorescent diamonds are just new to me.I love the look of florescence. This stone is amazing.
Though it isn't the same cut...I have rose cut with florescence and it looks really cool in the sun. I have had several. Though it doesn't appear hazy to me. Example in sunlight and shade.
It's not the camera. This effect may even be slightly more pronounced in personNot sure what your actual eyes are seeing, but the first picture seems very clear & crisp. The second one seems to have a haze or softness to it that the other doesn't. I'm not a graphic designer but I am sure there is a term for this.
In side-by-side you can see what I mean. However, look at the background. You will see it too is more hazy/soft than the original picture. I am thinking this could be a camera effect of sorts.
Thanks. And thanks, lol. I was eye balling that Octavia for the same reasons and nearly pulled the trigger. Then I figured the wife would skin me alive.
So you likely saved my life. I have been toying with the idea for a few days now.
I hope you used the fact it "only" scored an AGS1 to beatdown on the price. That was going to be my strategy anyhow.
Despite the fact Karl & Yoram said in the other thread, it was simply a technicality. AGS had defined proportions and despite being a stunner, it didn't fit inside those parameters so it got dinged on the grading. They revamped the proportions ever so slightly to get a 0 and not affect light performance.
Of course, when bartering, you don't mention the latter. Just the fact it's a 1 instead of 0.
What are the parameters for 0 cut Asschers?I hope you used the fact it "only" scored an AGS1 to beatdown on the price. That was going to be my strategy anyhow.

I would have to look it up but I can say its extremely arbitrary and you can follow all their rules and cutting guideline numbers and cut a stone that totally sucks.What are the parameters for 0 cut Asschers?
Caysie (of CvB) got equally excited about the project!
I am currently in the queue for CAD rendering on June 28th. The ring should be done sometime in August...and we'll be ring brothers!
