Is it too late to put one on my Christmas list to Santa ?? ha ha!

No.

Buy it Tuesday on a credit card and get it Wednesday.
Even if you wired funds tomorrow you should get it by Thursday.
Santa''s day is Friday.

I should have my precious by 10:30 tomorrow unless weather slows the planes.

You should see how excited my goldfish are.

They should be. If it goes in the aquarium, we''re all coming up to move them to a new home!

Congratulations! I wish I could see one of these in person. Maybe after we remodel our kitchen I can consider shopping for one

God I love that cut.
Would make a great man's or ladies ring.
Great point Richard.

I really think it has a unique new yet old, strong and masculine yet feminine and floral, universal appeal to it.

I'm really quite smitten by how clever the design is.

Hopefully GOG will get a larger one next year.

I have wanted to get my husband a diamond for a while, but I wasn''t sure what cut would be manly enough for him

. I really think this cut is perfect! It has the optics I love about RBs, but it is also broad flash, straight line goodness!

I can''t wait to hear what you have to say about it Kenny!

The first ''a'' should have a long a sound.

Oc-tay-vee-ah? Really? So, the last syllable is the sound your doctor tells you to make when pressing down your tongue and looking at your throat?

I thought it would be Oc-tay'-vee-uh, where the last syllable rhymes with up.

I think the accent should be on the second syllable.

No, now that you point it out I would say uh instead of ah. When will these computers be talkies?

Now for the first syllable, Oc.

1. rhymes with Oak tree?

2. rhymes with the ock of tick tock?

I vote 2.
Wait, should we be voting, or asking Karl?
Or is that as silly as the Southpark characters asking what Bryan Boitano would do?

LOL! Now why didn`t you suggest that when he was trying to name it in the first place. It really rolls off the tongue

Nope.
It is still there, calling your name.
Tonight when you lay your head on your pillow if you listen very carefully you will hear it calling to you.

Two new Octavias got posted today, a 1.19 ct J VVS1 and and a 1.34 H VS2.
I grabbed the 1.34.

In 13 hours I should have it.

Waiting is a very anxious thing.
We should make up a word for the agony of diamond waiting.

Congratulations on your new baby!! It''s beautiful and I''m glad you found one you liked.

Do you have any plans yet to set it or will you just gaze at it for a while?

Swingirl, I think it will end up in a tension setting but I'll ogle it for a while.

I do think diamonds would look cool in an aquarium.
They'd pick up the reflector's light and give you flashes of the colorful fish that swim by.

I can't wait 11 more hours. Whaaaaaa!

Woo-hoo ! I''m not surprized, I knew you were smitten ! Congrats. Say, what kind of Champagne is that?

I tell you, I was watching the video of that one the other day and I had to squint at one point because it was so darn bright and sparkly. I said out loud "Wow". Bars and sparkle - how great is that?

It''s spectacular. Congrats, Kenny.

(You go, Stormy!)

Oh, this is so awesome and in a tension setting too. I can’t wait to see lots of pictures of the stone when you get it. I normally drag out the “ah” at the end, much like Olivia.
