Haha yes I am very fortunate indeed to have enjoyed Bea/Bella for so many years and now seeing @Austina loving and enjoying her. Really privileged to be a part of all this OEC love and it is very meaningful for me that Austina loves her so much.OMG! I just fainted.
Oh no I am so sorry. What a gorgeous cushion. I don't know if the theft happened a long time ago or recently but I hope you found or will find the diamond of your dreams to replace it. (((Hugs))).
wow this might be one of my favorite rings on PS. i'm so sorry to hear it was stolen however ): do you have anymore pictures? what color/carat was the gold? it is stunning, truly.
I love this. Everything about it. Can we see some profile pictures? I’m curious to see if it’s a full, deep bezel or thinner & more structured so that you can see the culet?
Here is my K or L (two reports, 2 colors) VVS1 2.61 pear. It’s an older cut, likely cut in the 1920’s. A bit of a bow tie but the polish and symmetry is really good. And she’s long at 1:1.71 so, much like Dr Who ‘this bow tie is cool.’
I bought her in the original pre WWII platinum prong setting but the girdle is extremely thin and frosted, and really prone to chips, and I am a hand talker. So... I took a different path and embraced the warmth, faint yellow in the body and dropped her into a full bezel of 18 carat gold with a platinum shank (resused the original).
The color really shows in some pics and not in others, as you can see here. Took both at my desk, same light, within moments of each other. The only difference is the white of the napkin in one as background and the blue of my portfolio pad in the other.
I adore so called lower colored stones in deep, high carat gold - they just stand out so much from the crowd of ice white. Don’t hide the color, flaunt it!
