Excited to post here! This is my new 5.01 GIA K/VS2 antique cushion in a platinum LM-inspired halo with F/G single cut melee and lovely double claw prongs. Measures 11.14 x 10.32 x 5.42 mm with faint fluorescence. Size 7 finger. I’m in love with the creamy color and the big, chunky facets. The diamond is quite the chameleon and plays up so many rainbow colors depending on the lighting and surroundings.

Here’s my original thread: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/5ct-antique-cushion-halo-decision-to-make.240765/

My second favorite cuts are Antique Cushions!!!

Yes I did. I accepted the 1.10 carat VVS2 GIA certified diamond. Also it was also certified on the actual date of my 10th anniversary 4-19-18. I am happy with her. I will never trade her. Thank you for asking. I did receive extra goodies for all the stress. :appl: You live and learn. And hopefully learn from your mistakes. Which I definitely did.

Hope it is OK to share my over 5 carat rings.
While Bubbalah is a 4.93 OEC technically the ring is well over 5 carats.

From this past autumn

and my Cartier Black Opal from this past winter... she is I believe 5.91 carats (not including the diamonds in the halo which are over 1 carat) so here she is.

I honestly believe that this is the PS killer combo. As a pair of rings owned by the one person, this is the knock out punch, in my opinion.

There are a lot of gorgeous - dare I say it - equally gorgeous rings on PS. But as a combo? The size, class and quality of this pairing is just past measuring.

These are fantasy rings.

Both are Sooooo beautiful, and they look elegant on your hand! I love that Bubbalah, most especially. Drooling is not enough. :D

Thank you @mrs-b. And may I say you have quite the drool-worthy bling collection yourself. :love:

@missy, @mrs-b

The be-all might not be one ring, but two - sun in winter, ice in summer ...

One - if one of a pair.


digressing - along the way of my thesis I came accross this saying: 'Paradox is good'
Threadjack: @AV_ i can’t tell if you’re quoting poetry or if these are your own comments. But you sound like a poet to me. And a truer description of @missy ’s Rings I cannot find.

@LLJsmom oooh.... BLUSH!

I am also talking about what I want: two rings - thinking through what I wish (fun & oddly intense - like they say of tattoos sometime, that they are the person) came to this sort of conclusion & it looks like I am not alone in wishing things in strictly non matching pairs (unless @missy does STACK those two - somehow ,) )

Wowza! Those are some big, beautiful rings. I think they must be even more distracting than the 3 carat rings ;~) glad to see some colored stones and thank you for sharing!

Could I ask what the specs on for your OEC? I am very interested in getting a flowery, sparkly OEC for my 20th. . . would love to know what kind of specs I should be looking for. . .

Thanks @missy !

@eesmom Hi! I can see your question embedded in Missy's quoted post and hopefully she will see it! However, I think she will tell you that you cannot choose an OEC by specs. You have to look at many stones sometimes for a long time to find a fabulous facet pattern like Missy's. Check out Old World Diamonds, Jewels by Grace, and Love Affair Diamonds as they all will show close up shots of facet patterns.
