Don't dismiss other stones based on images, and don't let yourself become too attached based on images either. The proof is in the in-person viewing with these old diamonds. Many amazing stones do not photograph/video well but look amazing in person, in part bc the camera is monocular vision compared to our binocular eyes!

True, but this is the first one I really want to see in person enough to actually set the wheels in motion. There was one Grace I kinda liked, but she wouldn't sell it unmounted and 3 day return policy is toooo tight to me, if you're not sure. I hesitate to consider any of her stones because of only 3 day return.
I've offered my last penny on the Alex. If that doesn't happen then I'll be more willing to start looking again.

Fingers crossed for you @CHRISTY-DANIELLE. Doesn’t the idiom ‘a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush’ mean anything to Alex? I mean he has an eager buyer in you. I would think it would be easier to find another buyer for the remaining stone than to find one for the pair. Mark it sold already!

Yay, congrats on the purchase. I can't stop watching the video! Did you see the 3.61 NVS2 in person as well?

Just remind him you've been in contact before, that you've been looking 9 months, tell him what you are looking for. He offered to look for me and show me stuff before he listed it, maybe he can do same for you?
I emailed him early yesterday at the address above.....and have yet to hear back from him! :( Makes me really sad as he has some really nice stones at reasonable prices.

That looks to be a stunner!
I’m another that can’t wait to see what you’ve got planned to set it in!
