    Hi everyone! I would first like to say that I have really enjoyed this site. I had not been into jewelry, specifically diamonds, until the last few years. I have learned so much just from PS and am truly in love with old cuts. I have made a few purchases and truly love every one of them, now I'm looking to buy an upgrade e-ring with a near-carat (or more, why not?) OEC. I see all sorts for sale but not as many with the tall crowns so I would really love to see some of yours! All old cuts are welcome ;)2

    My e-ring has a delicious high crown. I'll see if I can get some decent photos of my Old Mine Cut cluster earrings when I get home tonight.

    Attempt #2, because the photos came out huge the first time

    My OEC's crown isn't puffy, but I thought I'd post it anyway, because I love OECs

    I'm finding out that I love claw prongs and multi-stone rings! My budget isn't going to allow for the latter but I can dream.

    And that Casablanca...

    Here's my CVB Casablanca by CVB similar to Queenie's with an AVR.

    Then my AVC has perhaps the highest crown:

    My antique asscher also has a small table and high crown, and I just don't have a picture at the right angle. I really love the high crowns and small tables of old cuts!

    I've been trying to get some good pics of my old mine cluster earrings, but it's been a challenge. They're tremendously sparkly, like little disco balls on the earlobes.

    I wore these at my wedding.

    They're Victorian, ~2.25 ctw. For scale, the green velvet box is a double-size Mrs Box. Earrings themselves are ~14mm across.

    Here's the best I've been able to do so far:
