I have had an ongoing quest to find a beautiful transitional or old european with beautiful light return and faceting. I absolutely love the finds some pricescopers have gotten their hands on! The longer I look, the more I'm into transitionals, as I have an august vintage cushion that has those broad facets i love and it'd be nice to have some variety in the collection!!

what do you think of this one? It's described as a MRB on the GIA cert but I think it's more transitional, or perhaps its an early MRB? Boy do I wish Dreamer were still posting!

Thought I'd try and bump this thread. Does anyone have any thoughts?

It looks nice. What are the measurements on the GIA report?

Please see the attached photo. It's 1.54ct, G VS2, 7.47x7.53x4.41.

Really appreciate your valuable advice!

What do you think is the appropriate price for this?

As long as it is the look you prefer, that's fine. It has a 60 table which is on the larger side for old cut stones. I prefer low 50's max for a tranny, and smaller for an OEC. Dreamer's diamond has a table of around 50 and lower girdle facets in the 60 range, so it's a little different than this one. Best to see it in person if you can (as in, return policy).
