You may remember my antique cushion from Old World Diamonds 1.75 carat, 7.69 x 6.89 x 4.70, VS2, M .

Here is the original thread: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/a-new-antique-cushion-cut-in-the-making.87912/

I sent it off to Wink at Winfields to have it set in the Vatche Alexa. Without further ado, here is a pic taken by Winfields (I don't have a digi cam for hand shots)

I
it very much. In terms of fire and flash, it blows the pear away. As an M, there is a definite antique candlelight color to the diamond.

Winfields was super easy to work with. It was a great experience, I highly recommend them.

That is one beautiful ring PP. Love the setting, it is gorgeous. I hope you can post hand shots, you have to have someone take pictures for you.

Oh my! That is one incredibly, totally, amazingly gorgeous ring! I adore the stone, the M color is a favorite of mine in antique cuts (I''m totally biased though). The setting you picked is one I''ve loved forever, it was on my short list of ones I was considering, in fact.

Basically it''s like... perfect. I hope you''re thrilled with it! (You''ve GOT to get a cheapie digital camera- we need more pics
)

Coming out of lurkdom to congratulate you on an absolutely gorgoeous diamond and for having fabulous taste in settings! I love that there is a setting named after me! Maybe when I''m ready for a new sparkly, someone will have come out with the Purrfectpear setting!

Yes I know. It was very helpful to see actual hand shots prior to ordering. I loved your ring.

It''s hard to describe, but the Alexa is MUCH more delicate in real life than it looks in pics don''t you think? I was surprised at how dainty it was. The width of the shank is narrow, and the undercarriage goldwork is downright petite.

I drool a little each time I look down (but don''t tell anyone).

Oh p, it's absolutely stunning! Really, just purrfectly scrumptious.



Now, WHY don't we have a digi cam?? Get one, pronto. It's against PS rules to post such lovelies without handshots.

I think that''s all rings. These shots magnify everything, sometimes to almost horrendous proportions!

Wow what a gorgeous setting. When I looked at the pic before I read the post I thought the whole ring was an antique. It''s perfect!

Oh, PP - this is just GORGEOUS! I love the setting - one of my friends has it and it''s just incredibly delicate and lovely in person!

I wish you had a digi cam - I''m so looking forward to real life shots of it! And the rest of your amazing collection!

wow.. that is a gorgeous stone. I''ve also never seen that setting.. it''s soo pretty. Really love the shape of the halo. The pics are going into my "when i win the lotto" folder.

Do you have a scanner? just take some normal pics and scan them in if you do!! Even a phone camera!! I''d really love to see a handshot.

When it comes to cell phones apparently I''m a bit technically challenged.

I took a couple of pics, emailed them to myself, and they were sooooo blurry. Seriously blurry, as in don''t bother to post blurry.


Is there a trick to cell phone pics? I have a Motorola razor.

I had that phone and it does take terrible pics


only thing i can think of is zooming out, decreasing the brightness (use the arrow keys on the phone) then editing it in a picture program to make it sharper. I had to do that everytime i used it.

SNAG SOMEONE OFF THE STREET WHO LOOKS LIKE THEY APPRECIATE BLING! Tell them it's an EMERGENCY (it is!).

Your ring is stunning, by the way. MORE PICS soon please!

That was very fast by the way, based on your original thread start-date!
