I’d try to find another 1 carat mine cut at a pawn shop or something and have an awesome pair of earrings made 🙂

Wow, that’s a large looking size increase for just .2 carats! Beautiful! I would use the OMC in a diamond bezel necklace.

I second the earring idea. Your ring is so gorgeous as a solitaire and those would be some gorgeous earrings!

Hmm…designs that have two round cuts…that’s a tough one.

@Ascholar78:  have you had it appraised? Do you know the specs?

With an OMC I think you might give consignment with places like Jewels by Erica Grace or Good Old Gold a try.

@Ascholar78:   Please have your Old Mine Cut appraised by someone qualified to do so.  I have an Old Mine Cut which was appraised by two separate jewelers, not knowing what the other had said, THEN we had it appraised properly for insurance.  It was over three times the other two values.  Apparently OMC diamonds are hot stuff right now.  

🙂   I adore mine, and wouldn’t part with it for the world!!!!

@JessMorgan777:   Old Mine Cuts are very deep diamonds – they were cut in a time of candlelight so are cut to be sparkly in low light.   Mine looks breathtaking in indirect light and throws tons of sparkle in sunlight too.
