I don't think that's a window. I think that's some sticky stuff used to keep the stone upright when taking the picture. If it were a window it would not have a rounded outline.
danskow said:i do not have an intent to resell no, this is for an engagement ring. However the stone will be passed down to children as that is a custom in our family (my brother received my mothers stone already) and the reason i am curious on its value is so that it can hold that value as its passed down the line. In other words im just making sure im not paying more for something that is less and with the extremely limited knowledge i do know having as much advice (along with all the research ive done) is very helpful..... there are so many fine lines and what seem like personal preference that it is so hard to judge. I suppose it wouldn't be as much fun if that wasn't the case though!
