I've tried to not love a princess cut, even went thru aversion therapy. I can't help it, just bought a small one from a pawnshop last month. I really like mine but yours is killer.
You put so much study into choosing an Asscher, I have to ask, what is your process for finding a good princess cut? What are your criteria?

:D Thank you! I'm with you on that - I don't understand the disdain for princesses on PS :???: I love the patterns you see in princesses, as well as the brilliance and scintillation. Plus just the squareness of the outline - a princess looks properly square in whatever size they come in, which is not the case for some cut-cornered fancies.

I got this princess years ago, and I was just really taken by the facet pattern on this diamond. When I bought it back in 2001 the internet retailer didn't even have a video so it was bought just from a photo alone. The depth % is slightly lower than the table %, from memory something like 69% with table 71% and a medium girdle. The big bonus with this one was that it faces up big for its carat weight because of the smaller depth. So there was no special process (not even an ASET :-o) although I did try to follow the PS guidelines at the time for the acceptable cut parameters. And contrary to the received wisdom of PS it does display plenty of fire, even with a lower crown height and larger table.

The original setting I had it in did seem to reduce the performance though. I spent some time wondering if the stone wasnt as good as I had originally thought once it was set. The issue turned out to be that the inside of the setting wasnt finished properly and there were large darkened rough areas of platinum touching the pavilion, trapping dirt and making it difficult to clean as well. Once I had the setting refined I got the wow factor back again. :kiss2:

OMG with your skin tone! Fabulous! I think darker toned skin owns white diamonds. Absolutely gorgeous, thanks for posting.

My latest stack! My 3ctw tennis bracelet, with my Christmas gift from DH, in 14ct solid rose gold. Love it!

Very unique! I think it has a fun and current vibe, even though I think I remember that it’s vintage,

Tried all sorts of stacking with my new open WF ACA bangle.

@MakingTheGrade I know this is an old thread..but I just reset my cushion diamond into a solitaire bangle. I should be getting it in a few days...I’m wondering if it’s safe to stack bracelets like DBTY and bezel diamond bracelets with the bangle..It’s been a while since you got your ACA bangle. Did stacking scratch the bangle? Do you feel it’s safe for the chain to fall over the diamonds? You know when you get something new you worry about the first scratch. Thanks!

I went out on my own for a meal at a local restaurant that I frequent after they re-opened yesterday for eat in's.

Very casually dressed as per usual, however I thought I would wear my MRB bangle and tennis bracelet together which is probably my favourite stack.

Photo taken using my phone at dusk after the meal at about 20:30 in the car park, worn with the small EC as I thought the large one would be a bit OTT! :lol-2:

@dk168 I love this stack! Do you worry about your diamond in the bangle getting scratched when you stack? I’m getting my new bangle in a few days! :appl:

No, as it is bezel set and I have not noticed the tennis bracelet going over it.

To be honest, I can't worry about it too much when I am wearing them.

Thanks @dk168 I don't think metal will scratch the diamond. That’s really all I care about...

The stones in the tennis bracelet will not come into contact with the MRB in the bangle due to the way they are set. Therefore, I would say the risk of scratching is negligible.
