Here's what I ended up with! A 1.90ct GIA K/SI2 OEC. Since it's a love child between @Spring Day 's old setting and my new stone, I've named it, "Patchy."

Wow!! I’m so glad you finally got this! I LOVE it and the proportions between center and side stones are perfect! Who did you get the center stone from? I hope to see a SMTB soon :)

I got the center from Sako and the sides from @Spring Day. I'll post more pics once @Spring Day comes to visit and takes pics of Patchy for me :lol:

Hi all! I wanted to see if anyone had any leads on an OEC (or other old cut diamond). I've reached out the usual suspects on Instagram and on the preferred vendors list. But it seems like most vendors either don't have any 8mm OECs in stock at the moment, or they're $10k and up.

I'd love to be able to find an old cut diamond that matches the following specs:
- Price - under $6k would be amazing, but up to $8k is doable
- Cut - OEC or something close to it. I've attached a pic of a gorgeous 1.86ct OEC that's within budget from the Preloved forum but it has since sold.
- Carat - about 2ct. Needs to fit in an existing setting that will accommodate a round stone about 7.7-8.5mm wide, but depth is maybe max 5.5mm.
- Clarity - eye clean and no significant chips or inclusions that would compromise durability
- Color - faces up somewhat white in at least some lighting situations. So M and up? Maybe as low as O-P?

Any leads would be appreciated!

Thanks all!

Oh this is stunning!

Lol I was waiting til @Spring Day and I could get together so she could take pics for me cuz she's so awesome at it. I have more pics now. But then I got lazy :lol-2: In all seriousness though, my kiddo's childcare fell through so I'm staying at home with her until she starts at her new school. And so I haven't had as much time to Pricescope as I'd like. Soon though, soon!

Good luck! I enrolled my kid in one summer camp and was so happy to have that free time that I found two other camps LOL. He completed four sessions total. I think I cried a little when they were over.

We didn’t sweat and get overheated in 110 degree weather for you to be lazy!
