Here is a quick iPhone shot of my 3.10 OEC. I just picked her up today, and still need to do a more glamourous photoshoot.

congrats off to check you your gorgeous ring! :bigsmile:

For some reason I thought I already posted in this thread but I guess I didn't. I know I put some pieces in Ellens thread with my brooch and Asprey pin. Well I am wanting to make a 3 stone ring. I am almost there. I bought a transitional, old OEC and of course the 2.03 OEC I already have. I might make the transitional a pendant as it is gorgeous!!! :love: decisions decisions ;)) A sweet ps'er helped me!!! I will properly thank her when I finish my project.

Oh, no it won't. I "think" I know what I want but I want to be 100% sure before I say let's go for it, so I have a feeling it will be done a little later. It will happen this year though. I have been pondering the whole 3 stone for awhile. thank you, YT, I am excited.


YT, I love your ring; I can't wait to see it! :love:

Nice to see this thread revisited. Beautiful stones everyone!

Dreamer-asked to see my new-ish ring-here 'tis.
Old European Cut-just under 3 carats-in a heavy 18k mount.
I was doing some digging and came across this ring again. Every few months I remember it exists and I come back to drool.

This is just the. most. BEAUTIFUL. old cut I've ever seen.

The faceting is just perfection.

Ummm yeah...it's the Holy Grail of Old Cuts in my book! I credit Coati's stone with igniting my love of old cuts. Come to think of it, maybe I shouldn't thank her, since I've spent quite a bit of $$ on my obsession. :loopy:

I've always been more into modern brilliant cut but somehow lately I've caught myself drooling after those beautiful old cuts... :confused: And I feel this isn't going to stop until I'll some of this treat for myself! :naughty:

I was just wasting time drooling in my favorite thread :lickout: and realized I never added my "Rose"... ::)
Center is an OEC, .46ct, H, VS2, no fluorescence, GIA certed. Two side stones are OMC's at .21ct and .22ct (both J, I1, no certs). The half halo is made up of modern round brilliants. All set in 14k rose gold. One photo is the center stone before it was set. Hopefully this thread will be "pinned" soon it doesn't get lost in the shuffle :appl:

And it was so beautiful in person when you see it too (so is Coati)!!! It was just dreamy. I have always really liked her ring but after seeing it at TGT I now covet it in my top 3 PS rings :appl:
