Beautiful stone and setting! I also have an OMC and agree with you that they are so special and I love mine. It’s also in a new setting and the jeweller has estimated it to be from approx 1860. 

Anyway here is my beauty πŸ™‚

@wrkbrk:  One of the first things you will see on on OMC is the little circle in the middle and it has chunkier fasets as there are less of them than on a RB. It will not to be completely round, it will have a bigger crown as well.

If yours is from the 30s is more likely to be a transitional diamond or a OEC though. If you google all 3 you should be able to see pics to compare.  I hope that helps.

@wrkbrk:  Beautiful! it looks a bit too symmetrical to be an OMC but it could be a transitional diamond. They are stunning as well, not that all diamond cuts aren’t πŸ™‚
