@evergreen, love the faceting on display here, this is literally the perfect three stone. Who did the setting? I admit to zooming in to peep that milgrain.

David Klass! Someday I'll do a thread on this ring... It's a total glow-up from the melee-sized "milgrain" on my original setting, ha. Thanks!

Oh gorgeous @asterismdispersion! What a treat to have a diamond previously owned by ForteKitty.

These are absolute perfection. Museum quality :) Always so happy when I see them. Also, your incredible opal.

@missy, Man, to have not only one big beautifully cut OEC but three…that’s just amazing. All three just have the most beautiful faceting.

i don't think it's perfectly cut, but i just love this stone. it's so bright and lively, with a perfect amount of chonk and wonk. i'm with @oldcutclubmember - i don't really need optical perfection for an OMC. it's more of a vibe, hah!

one day, i hope to have my "perfect" OEC - i would be more relentless about light return with an OEC. she's out there...somewhere...waiting for me to save my pennies and have a big enough anniversary to justify TWO engagement rings :lol:

I have to say there are incredible beauties in this thread. So many flavors, all so uniquely special. So much to love about old cuts!

I wouldn’t kick a single one of these diamonds outta bed :lol:

I love the warmth of this diamond in the yellow gold, that sweet vanilla color is wow with the fire.

I'm really enjoying the eye candy in this thread; everyone has such beautiful diamonds.

This is my least wonky old cut.

It is so beautiful!

I predict old cuts will increase in value as they are one type of stone that is not a likely lab.

It was too late to edit my post - I don't like the wording I used, this diamond doesn't look wonky :D It's definitely my prettiest OEC.

@junebug17, don’t worry, we can clearly see there is nothing wonky about that beautiful diamond…and ring. Love that setting so much.

The best cut diamond I found up to date must be this one:

Did you get this? I was eyeing this when I was shopping for an OMC! Was just smaller than I was looking for and I couldn’t bear with tearing the setting up!
