.58ct Champagne diamond in bright sunlight by the pool πŸ™‚ size 4.25 finger. I love how the champagne looks with yellow gold. So yummy.

linvirginiasomewhere:  Thank you so much! I do really enjoy gazing at it, especially in the sun. It is so fiery for a “brown diamond”. I never realized until I got this stone that non-colorless diamonds could shoot spectral colors! And best of all, they are very affordable compared to their colorless counterparts πŸ™‚ Thanks again for the warm compliment!

The whole “gotta be white” thing is a new construct. Old diamonds are very often warmer colors and the soft vanilla color is amazing in a good clarity and good cut. You’re right, it will hold it’s own with any whiter diamond. The antiques like mine were often all the way into an “M” color and most were VS1 to SI1. Congrats, it is gorgeous!

Mine is an I and in the right lighting has a nice creamy light gingerale. I love the warmth.

linvirginiasomewhere:  I loooove your OMC! It’s just gorgeous! I am excitedly awaiting a 5 stone OMC wedding band from the Victorian period πŸ™‚ Old cuts are so interesting and I love the history that the stones hold. I could stare at them endlessly!

GemmaBella:  Thanks!…I can’t wait to see your oldcuts!!!!! A 5 stone would be wonderful. Each stone will have it’s wonky personality.

Under flat lighting they are pretty but under some lights they are a fire factory. As the gemologist said last week when I took mine for appraisal, the newer cuts ARE better cut and favor brilliance, but the old cuts are cut for dispersion and fire. 

Wait til you go to dinner one evening and are sitting under soft lighting πŸ™‚ Your ring will be absolutely amazing. They are so pretty under lamplight. I’m happy for you.

Oh, and lastly, I love the fact this old rock lasted through many lovers and saw so much happiness over the years. When I am gone someone will love it as much too.
