Nice! I saw that one in the preview, I believe, and couldn't believe the pastels she captured in the stone! Gorgeous!

When you wrote about fluorescence in the other thread I suspected this beauty was it. Gorgeous and congrats!

So this diamond is smaller than the one you sold? I know you said you wanted an old cut instead of the MRB but I guess I sort of thought you were looking in the same size range. I guess though than when you find a stone with the look you love, the carat weight doesn't matter as much!

It does look like a very enchanting stone - can't wait to see it in its setting!

that is a beautiful stone. i saw that on sneak peak and thought WOW!

I am glad that you still managed to get the stone, despite the shaky start.

Fate- yes.. it was meant to be. I can so totally relate.
When i bought my (smallish 0.65ct) OEC, i didnt think i would get it; but i have it now... Yay!!!

The frustration, angst, disappointment is now all turned to blossoms, heart singing and happiness.

Enjoy it!

cant wait for you to see it and then set it!

Yum....

All,

I am over hte moon about this stone, it just sings to me and I can't wait to get it in my hands. It is at AGS as we speak.

MissGotRocks - I was looking for a larger stone but when I saw this I had to have it and with the great price that Erica offered it at I have enough left over from my sale of my 3ct RB that I am looking at purchasing a 2 ct RB a little while down the road. So I will have the best of both worlds!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am thinking rose gold as it throw off the blues and purples in sunlight, what do you all think? I will post some possible settings to get some input.

Two contenders, I was going to order the first one but I like the 2nd on too, just not so sure about sapphires.

I only see a RG ring, 2 photos of it. I'd consider keeping the bezel rose gold on the center diamond, or even making it white metal. But setting the halo stones in white gold or platinum. That way, the ring isn't overwhelmingly rose gold. And if rose gold goes out of fashion, you will have a mixed metals ring which is more adaptable than all rose gold. I've been going back and forth with resetting a big J diamond I have, and have been studying settings for about 2 years and still can't determine what I want "for life." lol

I totally get it on size - as long as you have the look you love, the size is not so important anymore. However, it's great that you might be able to have two different rings if that's what you want - that's definitely a win-win situation!!

As for the blues and purples, white gold or platinum strikes me as the metal of choice but I'm not a fan of rose gold for me personally. That doesn't mean it's not beautiful though. If you have come this far to have this stone that you love, go for the metal that sings to you as well. Any time I didn't trust my gut instinct, I've been sorry!!

Autumngems, congratulations on your new OEC! It's fabulous! :love: I'm excited it's already at AGS! I really am happy for you! :appl:

(I didn't comment on the two different settings because I only see one showing up. Will check back later. Good luck!). :wavey:

My other buyer never saw it in person - she had to cancel for budget reasons. I never even shipped it to her.
