    I struggled to get these photos. My cell phone camera sucks. As DH says, it's not a real camera.

    Haha, thanks!
    You should've seen me, standing on the back porch, taping white paper to my black cell phone with a little hole cut out for the lens. And holding a white dish towel across my chest to try to eliminate colors and reflections from spoiling the shots!!!

    Your pictures look great @Stracci! I just use my IPhone camera so no real camera here either. Really adore your settings too :kiss2:

    I just wanted to say that I love the body colour of this stone, @Nikki1415 . Do you have a report? I’d be interested to know the details!

    @LisaRN such pretty faceting! My favorite ring of yours was the transitional you had, it had a checkerboard pattern if I remember right, gorgeous.

    @Rfisher, so beautiful, maybe that's the great thing about the old cuts is even if they don't have perfect petals they are still beautiful :kiss2:

    Dang! I don't know how you take such good pics of the patterning. I will try to get a pic of my daughter's OEC engagement ring--after she is actually engaged. It's a .60ct but so pretty.
