Mine has a similar cut. 60% table and pointed culet, so no OEC by definition. But facet pattern very similar to OEC. No one could tell me what it is yet. Possibly an early modern round brilliant. But: I love it because it is a special one. Did you explicitly look for a OEC? F94A1055-853D-4E55-AD04-F57C3C14A474.jpeg

It’s absolutely beautiful and so unique! I’m sorry that you are having second thoughts, but I hope whatever happens next brings you joy. Personally I think it’s a stunning stone and a gorgeous ring.

Thank you so much for saying that. The deal can’t be undone at this point so I am going to learn more about how the diamond performs in day to day wearing. Maybe I end up
Loving it. If not, I will look into a recut!!

I’m sorry you’re feeling bad about your stone. To be honest, I like it a lot. It’s one of a kind. It’s not an OEC, but I’m almost certain it’s an older brilliant cut (and not just a badly cut MRB). What will happen when you have it certified: it will possibly come back with a “good” cut, maybe less and this not because it actually is badly cut, but because it is differently cut compared to a today MRB. I hope you will come around to loving it or find an other solution that makes you happy! But I surely would love to know it’s specs!

Same same. I’m dying to know.

I think it is beautiful. I almost bought a modfied round with a super low wide table and less crown facets than a MRB that was hard to figure out. It was almost like the pavillion facets were acting the way an emerld cut does; mirrorlike flashes with an absence of color, but lively. But it sold before I could scrape the money together.

Edited to note that i saw you had already posted a video.

Nice!!

That is an excellent swap, congratulations :))

It doesn't look anywhere near an L in the video!

Get yourself a UV torch off eBay or Amazon and you can check out the fluor :)

Late to this post but that stone is absolutely beautiful. Do you mind me asking your ring size? Thanks.
