What a beautiful set! And how neat to have the first MMD Octavia and be able to watch the process unfold as the cutting proceeded, so very cool! Wear your lovely stones in good health :)

I've never seen an Octavia set in a ring and you've done it to perfection. And with that band! I had to walk around for an hour to find something to say about your set. I love Asschers and yours are so beautiful that I was speechless.

The blog post is up! And it’s such an amazing read! Thank you for the journey @diagem!!

I want to add that when I sold my oec, I thought I would never see those fascinating color flashes again that old cuts are known for. And it made me sad. However, I was unprepared for the splendid color light show that my “Cherry” (my Octavia’s name- Yoram inspired the name when he told me months ago that the baby pink color was the cherry on top of it all!) constantly gives! It’s like hundreds of oecs sitting on my finger! The precision is perfect! The brightness is perfect! And the colored light display is perfect! Needless to say, I am thrilled beyond words with this special diamond!!

A little update... due to some knuckle issues, my Octavia needed a new dress. This was hard. Again! ha :loopy: I almost went with a Cliq basic setting, but it just didn't "fit" the stone. I kept coming back to @kenny's and @Dancing Fire's Boone settings. Then @lovedogs got one of his settings too, and I just couldn't get the idea out of my mind. I searched and searched his settings and none ever felt right. Then one day it clicked! He had a marquise setting that was perfect, if it would work. I did some computer mock ups and gave Bruce a call. Yes, that should work!! Woohoo! I shipped my octavia and the day he received it, he was on the computer designing! A few short days later, it was on it's way back to me- amazing!

This setting is the most comfortable ring I have ever worn! There is no spinning, it is so lightweight, and my diamond stays soooo much cleaner (still can't figure this out, but it's true)! And when I clean it everyday, I don't have to take the ring off- it is so easy to clean! The setting is very "me". I like settings that are substantial yet dainty too, and this is perfect! It is unique and different, yet simple and classic. I love it! So here it is...

Beautiful ring! :kiss2: Congrats!. Tension settings are so much easier to clean. The only negative side is that you can't resize a tension setting. The good news is that my Boone setting is inexpensive to replace.
