Thank you everyone for the compliments, it is so nice to receive from fellow jewel lovers! Hubby said last night as my diamond twinkled in low light that he never understood the fascination about diamonds until he saw this one. That was pretty powerful for me, lol.

Sure, although the diagram doesn't show much.
Thank you Mrs_S. GIA should offer a big discount when their automated equipment is incapable of collecting the data on anything other than MRBs!!!

At least now I know an OEC with a 41% table and 62.9% depth is capable of greatness. Your stone is a perfect example of an ideal cut making a lower color irrelevant. :))

I have never really been a diamond girl. I've always loved colored stones and have collected for almost 20 years. When hubby and I decided to get engaged, I told him I had a FCD to use, so he just bought a beautiful platinum setting and matching band for it. He thought he got off easy! But since being on PS and being exposed to antique diamonds and old cuts I started a new love affair and hubby was in big trouble, lol!

Long story short, here is my new-to-me OEC (GIA says circular brilliant) in a temporary setting. She is an O-P color and 3.63 cts with a teeny-tiny table of 41%. I bought her from a fellow PSer @imdoubler . Man, I had no idea how hard it is to photograph a diamond, so forgive the sorry pics. I can't capture the colors that she throws, so I will have to practice. She truly is a sparkle bomb.

Thanks for looking, as it's hard to share my excitement with my people irl, but I know ya'll will understand and not judge!
WOW!!! I would never have guessed the color! It looks super white!!

To get more intense pictures of the fire, try using a smaller F-stop. You might have to check the manual for your phone to see how o do it.

Thanks so much, Wink! A quick Google search helped me figure out how to adjust my camera. Now to practice!

Thank you so much! I will add that hubby and I got married 27 years after our first kiss (with both of us having previous marriages and 5 children between us that we have full custody of) so I didn't start at the top, but certainly feel like I've finally got there!
Samesies!! My DH and I married 32 years after we first met. And I also picked an OEC in a modern setting for my wedding set. :kiss2::kiss2:

Amazing, huge congrats!!! It is so interesting that many of us are not into MRB but love CS and antique cuts! Antique cuts are just so very special and have such a unique personality!
