I just received a ring that I purchased off of the Bistro and I wanted to share it with you all! It was sold to me with the following specs:
0.98 ct champagne colored rose cut diamond. It measures 9.8 x 6.8 x 1.3 mm. Setting by Amcor Designs and resized by David Klass. On to the pics (most are from the seller):

SparklySoprano - I have to be honest, it was a bit of an impulse buy. I have always, always, always loved rose cuts. Also have always adored Cathy Waterman's work, which was the inspiration for this setting. So, the opportunity sort of presented itself and I jumped. It was everything I never knew I always wanted - haha! :naughty:

ETA: The Bistro has some great finds, also Loop Troupe. It can be dangerous, however.

Very pretty! It looks beautiful on you! :appl:
Awww, thank you! The handshots I posted are actually of the seller, who has much nicer hands than I. I attached a photo of it on my (larger) fingers. Sorry for the dark photo. This stone is a chameleon! So hard to photograph. Sometimes it appears white and opaque, other times champagne colored. We're still getting to know each other.



I've named her Flora. She has a very rustic, natural look about her and I thought I would name her after my late aunt, Flora.

Thank you, Ally! You're very kind. I also am enchanted by rose cuts. I would love to have a massive one someday. They are definitely a different kind of sparkle in person. So lovely!

So beautiful. I saw this ring and loved it when it was for sale. It looks perfect on your hand. I agree..... It is so hard to photograph what I see in real life. I am glad it isn't only me. There are huge flashes of color and a shimmer that somehow doesn't always translate over to my cell phone photos. Taking hand shots with my real camera isn't easy ☺Great find and I will definitely be back to look for more pictures. Like you said.....my rose cut ring is everything I never knew I always wanted. ☺☺☺

Thank you so much for your kind words! I know it's hard to capture the glow of a rose cut, but do you have photos of yours? For some reason I can't search your previous threads so I'm not sure if you already created one. Would love to see it!

Here it is ☺I took a lot of pictures trying to capture the way I see it in real life. I was able to get some and it was fun to get to know the stone.

Oh,what a dope I am! I saw your thread and even commented on it asking for hand shots! :lol: I looooove your ring and rose cut. So amazing! Thank you for sharing!

Wow, you must have been the original owner!! I hope you don't mind me stealing your photos. I probably should have asked the seller. I just love the ring so much and wanted to show it off! I feel very lucky to own it. :wavey:

You should love it it's very special. I know what it was listed for but you wouldn't know the price by looking at it. Anybody who follows jewelry friends would think that cost 5 times what you paid. Looks like a designer piece

Thank you msop! I haven't worn it out of the house yet but I'm wondering if others will take notice. The details are so small but so well-done.

Niel - Thank you for your kind words!! I thought it was a Cathy Waterman at first but then realized I would be paying 20x the price! :lol: I think I got a great deal.

Thank you! It is a fairy tale for me to own it and I do love the romantic vibe. I'm hoping my prince charming doesn't kill me for buying another ring. :lol:
