Isn't it divine! What cut is your diamond? I would love to see this with a puffy crowned old cut. :)
I still have it in mind for a (lab) pink sapphire.

Omg! I was hoping that you would chime in! I didn’t realize you were going to do a project with this design- Do you mind if I use this as an inspiration??

It’s being recut now… it will be a transitional (my grandmother’s diamond, which I inherited, is a transitional and I’ve always loved them, I guess because they were only cut for such a short time and I love the broad facet pattern).

I’m obsessed with prongs and have been trying to decide which kind I want - this setting is similar the things I’ve been saving but these prongs are amazing!

Of course not! Go for it! I think this would be amazing with a diamond! I wish I still had more views of it stored to share with you. It was from an IG vendor. I'll dig around to see if I can find it again. (No promises :( )

@RosieR that pear:eek2:. Do you remember how much it?


My mistake @lulu_ma its 4.7 carat H colour SI clarity. All measurements are guesstimates. It sold at auction at Bonhams on 1st December for £44,400 (approx 54,500 USD) including the buyer’s premium
Here’s the link. I think I have more pictures of it and other goodies on my insta 7E6FEE69-693D-4D50-B258-6884A8EE8F6D.png
It was the auction where I missed out on the art deco diamond and emerald line bracelet :(

They are both stunning. Hopefully next year we will both be more lucky with art deco bracelets!

Hear, hear! You and I fought inflation by spending less. No, I’m not bitter at all…haha

Wishing that next year is as good or better than this year!

I think choker length is more appropriate for such design, don't you think?

They aren’t true antiques but…I fell in love! Finally went to Single Stone irl…their French cuts are glorious!

Wow I love those thick bezels on the French band!
