Hi All,

I'm trying to find a transitional european round and have a budget to stick to, so I'm having some difficulty.
Where else can I look besides JbG, LAD, and Old world ?

My criteria is:
1.70-1.99, larger table, will go down to a K color, will do a SI1-2 if eye clean.
Budget is $8-9k.

Thank yoU!

Did you contact each of them and see if they are expecting anything or can source something like that? You wouldn't consider going L or lower if its a well cut stone or one with flor?

Hi artdeco - thanks for your reply. Yes I have been in contact with both of them and so far nothing fits the bill.

Yes, I would go lower to an M possibly, especially if it had flouro to help whiten it up

Yeah. I understand, but I mean, for old cuts, you kind of got to take what you can find, I feel like. And the size really would he negligible on the hand compared to a deeper 1.7ct

Mayk- thank you for sending those Leon's.....they are lovely too! I will keep those in mind

arkieb- I decided not to go with that stone.....while it's absolutely stunning and a great value, I fear that it will not satisfy my lust for an OEC. This needs to be my ring "for awhile" I have learned not to say "forever" and I just really have my heart set on a Tranny. There is another PSer thats working on making an offer on that great stone, so hopefully they work something out. It truly was a great looking RB.

Did Adam have anything that would work? I think the problem is that Old Cuts are becoming more expensive to find than preloved RBs that is why I suggested the RB. Ebay and actually going to Antique gem shows might have to be options you consider as well.

Have you tried Ilya at My Diamond Zone? He seems to have access to outside stones. I had initially bought a 1.77 I (EGL but it faced up very white) from him for under $9000, but ended up returning it because it was a bit too out of round for an Emilya. I found him helpful and easy to work with.

Diamond zone doesn't have a diamond search option. I will have to call them.

Yuketiel at ID Jewlery doesn't have OECs at this time and referred me to Adam at old world.
