Excited to add mine here. I don’t know exact stats on the diamond apart from it’s an old mine cut that weighs 1.10 carats and faces up 6.5mm and it’s brown yellow in color. Absolutely love this color!

Lol I just figured something out today that was really embarrassing. My ring is rose gold. I thought I changed the order to yellow but happy with rose gold as well.

Rose gold in Australia looks very different and not subtle like this.

The rose gold is very flattering on you. Did I miss the specs on the stone and who made the gorgeous setting? It's like a work of art!

Thank you for your compliments. Its a very nice rose gold. There was a post a while back about rose gold against Asian skin tone and sometimes it just gets lost in our skin.

Oh the specs hehe it's a 3.6ct OMC M SI2 on a size 7.5 finger. My fingers are huge sigh. And Alex Park of Parks Fine Group sourced the stone and made the setting for me.

The diamond and setting look huge on you. Really the proportions are just perfect.

Aww thank you so much. I am glad that the setting worked out. Lucky Alex has a good eye for design. I do love everything about this ring and always dreamed of owning an OMC

Oh I was very fortunate that he posted this stone at the start of covid when lockdowns began. For some reason the diamond didn't sell for a couple of months! There was interest initially but I think he forgot to post the updated specs from GIA. It was just my luck when I asked about it months later when I was ready to purchase.

I have another friend who is currently speaking to him about a 1.5-2ct ish OEC and it's taken a while to source.. maybe 2 months so far? I think it depends on what you are looking for.

Yeah I asked him to source me an OEC in the 2-3 carat range and he said he could not take my order as there are not many out there and he already has 15 other ppl looking for the same thing. I keep stalking his IG but his stones sell in seconds. Enjoy the ring. It’s beautiful and it was meant for you !

Thank you!! Well now that his people are all getting 2-3ct.. and when they all start upgrading to 5ct+... I am not sure if he buys back his stones lol.. but that might be way down the line.

I am definitely enjoying my ring. It is really special <3

Happy to oblige! I’m actually going to have the post location changed to attach to the smaller of the 2 stones, but this is what they look like now…I love them!

The color of the mount is that beautiful rosy antique yellow gold…and the crown setting is so pretty!

I added a new Alex Park OMC to my collection in this fun gypsy ring. It’s 18k brushed yellow gold. It’s a 1.64 carat OP VS. Alex made the setting.

Just one photo for now, I’ll add some more when I get outside tomorrow. Here it is with my other AP OMC in David Klass setting.

I never posted my OMC from Adam at OWD! 3.5 S-T Si1

Don’t think it’s her final setting, but enjoying it for now! I love this stone…

Lovely ring. Setting looks great - gives you plenty of time to decide the forever one.

So fun to see the same color range in totally different settings. Both of them are scrummy!
