    A very pretty stone! I hope you'll post photos when you decide on a setting. One of my own favorite diamonds is a 0.60 RB set in a $240 wire twist from JA. You can never go wrong with a solitaire for a stone you love to look at.

    This is my new .61 carat RB in a Danhov tension setting. I originally had it in a 1.5 mm four prong setting, but fell in love with the tension setting! 20140606_190839_2.jpg

    Oh wow, this is pretty! I really like the size of the melee with your diamond, blingy but not overpowering - it's perfect on you!

    Hi all! New lurker and even newer member, creeping out to introduce my vintage emerald cut engagement ring, circa 1940s.

    Center stone is ~.47 G SI1, side baguettes are ~.10 each, for a grand total of .67 carats estimated! :bigsmile: All set in 900/Ir plat.

    Ring size is 4.5-5, depending on the weather.

    Looking classic with some good old red nail polish.

    Looking GINORMOUS by the light of my desklamp.

    ...and a gross, tendon-y perspective shot. Eep!

    Vampira, you are my hero. I love your username, ring, nails, everything.

    Cheers from a fellow emerald cut owner (.49ct, estate, plat., T. & Co.).

    Thanks, orangesocks! Good to meet another half carat EC fan! :wavey:

    I did worry at first because I'd read a lot of posts from people saying that step cuts were best appreciated at the 1+ carat mark, but that wasn't a size I was comfortable wearing everyday... and I needed an EC with tapered side baguettes, haha! I was lucky enough to find this little cutie for the right price, and I still get plenty of fun, bold flashes of light from it. Nice things come in all sizes, after all, and I love this thread as well as the big showstopping-size ones!

    I completely agree on all fronts! This size is the most I'm comfortable with given my occupation and the fact that I never want to take my ring off (if at all within reason, of course). I also love emerald cuts because I think they're classic yet subversive at the same time. ;))

    Here is my upgrade a 0.73ct I/VS2 OEC! So happy with how it turned out, totally over the moon! It's essentially the same as before just with a bigger diamond (previous diamond size 0.39ct). :love: :love: :love:

    Everyone's under 1 ct diamonds are so beautiful and sparkly. I figured I'd add to this thread that I have been stalking for a long time and post mine! The center is a .50.
