Indoors, where the warmth is more conspicuous...
Sigh. OMG my dream ring!! It's just stunning. (I'm hoping my next acquisition in a few years will be an EC 3-stone similar to this, but with trapezoid sides) Do you have a thread on this beauty?? Also, what's your finger size?? The diamonds look absolutely massive on you! I'm in love!!
How cool that we share such a similar aesthetic and preferences! An antique cushion with frenchie sides would be AH-MAZING. My future EC ring will be made with lab-growns because I can't afford earth-mined in the size that I want (4+ carats). I'm hoping the lab-grown industry will be able to produce high-quality larger stones by the time I'm ready to buy! Until then, we should do a ring-share so we can scratch our itch to have both an antique cushion and an EC!My dream ring really is an antique cushion, with side stones like yours or french cut by Yoram (like Wintotty's old ring). The cushion is the only other cut I was considering. In fact, I owned one but swapped it with the emerald cut. I'm regretting it because I do miss the faceting and culet of an old antique cut..but I'll live live vicariously through you, KD. That's why I've been trolling you
My old setting was with traps but found that the proportions were not right for an ever expanding finger (size). Since my partner/SO was absolutely adamant about not changing the center for sentimental reasons (not so much the stone but the process holds so much symbolism). SO the next best thing was changing the sides to accommodate finger coverage goal. As for finger size, I'm now 6.25 but ring is sized 6.5.
As for thread, I'm waiting for someone to post theirs (hint, hint) because you know, beauty first before age
Edit to add: the ring, like the old one, was also made by the lovely Caysie.
Hi- here is my 4ct J (med Fl) w H color halo. It is very white looking and you cannot see a diff in color w the pave versus my stone. I saw K colors w Med Fl that were white looking and one L w Strong Fl that blew away the higher I’s I saw. So it really depends. I had two F colored EC’s before this and while this may not be as “white” it looks it and the cut is the best I could find which I think helps. After seeing the lower colors, I would never hesitate looking at them - w the med/strong Fl (as long as the cut is great). Good Luck. Can’t wait to see what you pick. Ps. I can’t remember a PS’r tag name but she has an L that is to die for. I’ll look to see if I can find it for you.
Hi! Thank you so much!!! . It was Old World Diamonds. Ask for Adam and show him the photo. He will know. I also bought my diamond from him.
Aw thanks! Small potatoes compared to all you PSers, but I’ve loved it these past 10 years. I shipped it off Tuesday for my upgrade
Sorry if I missed it elsewhere but what is your upgrade going to be? If it's anything like your previous EC ring, I know it's going to be super elegant!!!
