Stunning!:kiss2: Chunky delight.:appl:
Whenever I see beautiful OMCs like yours I get such FOMO! I was trying to choose between an OMC and an OEC and ended up going with an OEC because I love the flowery facets but something about a beautifully cut OMC is just amazing <3

Hi, this is my first post on this forum, though I've been lurking for a few weeks. Holly Jane is the name of my beloved cat.

rare chunky old mine cut.jpg I'm glad to have found a community that is as interested in jewelry as I am. It's one of my hobbies; it's what I like to collect. My paternal grandparents were jewelers. I guess I have it in my genes.

I'm quite the afictionado of old cuts and have more than several. I'm the maniac who bought this little wonky old mine cut from Ivy & Rose. I felt like someone needed to buy this little sweetheart, who would appreciate her. I think I'd like to have it put in a pendant, when I have the funds for the project - maybe a cut down collet? I don't know. I'm thinking because of the irregular shape, it would be hard to bezel well? What do you all think? It's 0.59ct, Si2 (eye clean), L color. rare chunky old mine cut.jpg

Hi, the diamond is uncertified but is estimated to be 0.70ct. The setting is 18k white gold. I have a thing for oval shaped diamonds and antique diamonds, so when I found this pleasingly plump one with its sweet open culet, I jumped at it. The diamond has a crystal near the culet and a couple carbon spots, but it is eye clean and doesn't take away from my enjoyment of it. With old cuts, I am forgiving of their imperfections!

@HollyJane Nothing to forgive. It is more difficult to get assymetrical facets to work, so the old cuts always have my attention.

Its hard seeing everyones beautiful OMCs because I want one so badly.
I'm saving quietly :evil2:
Someday I'll have my own version of a old sparkle bomb.
I do wish my beau was the one to get me one but he just cant rationalize spending that much money.
He hates gems :sick:
Anyone have any PP presentations or flow charts to convince him? Lol

You all are so lucky! They are all so unique and beautiful!

Sorry for the poor quality. It's been a long time since I took any photographs and posted. I think this little thing is an OMC?

I can't seem to find the deets on this thing! All I can trace back is that it is a pre-loved piece I purchased back in 2018 from a PSer.
