Absolutely gorgeous on your hand!!! Wow a million times over!
Curious how you wear it IRL - do you put it on when you’re leaving the house and take it off at home?

Painfully beautiful. I also didn't vote for the split shank but it's still completely perfect and I think you made an excellent choice.

@Lykame @LLJsmom - I was so close to choosing the other setting. It turned out that they couldn’t source french cuts in the right color unless I wanted to use modern cut stones. I didn’t want to do that so my decision was made! I figure I can always choose to get her a new dress in the future if I ever change my mind. :lol:

Hello friends! After three long months, I am excited to finally share my big mama OMC with everyone. :kiss2:

The stone is a 6.21 carat, early 1900s antique cushion. It’s graded GIA N/VS2 with slight fluorescence. There’s no way you’d ever guess it was an N! It faces up extremely bright, and it’s a chunky monkey with large facets and some wonky angles that catch rainbows like crazy! The stone measures 11.79x11.41 - from corner to corner it measures approx 12-12.31.

I have a bunch of pics and videos, so I’ll try to spread them out...

I’ll start with some pro pics by Anup and Lenny at Jogani, who I worked with to complete this amazing ring!

This makes me so happy, cruising through IG earlier and saw this, then catching up on PS, boom, there it is.

Beautiful!!!!! The setting is perfect.

Holy moly, there are no original adjectives this late in this thread, but o-m-g that is amazing! I love the color, the chunky facets , the chameleon rainbow colors...and that setting is just perfect. Perfect! Perfect!
Congrats on such a stunner!

That is incredible. What a gorgeous unicorn of a stone. No way I'd ever guess it was N.

And the setting is sublime. I love the top and bottom prongs with the sides open.

Oh, oh, well at least your decision was easily made! I stand by what I said though - this is perfect, that setting is wonderful for this stone, and it's a real bonus that it doesn't spin, too. Not sure I can see you getting her a new dress!
