cvaldes13:  The setting is now but a reproduction in Victoria Style to fit with the age of the stone (aprox 1860). It was set in a really horrid 1970 yellow gold man’s ring when DH found it so had it set in more suitable setting.

Mine is actually more cushion shaped but it’s hard to notice as it is set in a round setting. We wanted it to let in as much light as possible without being set high, but also to have it protected in a 6 prong setting as OMC’s have more delicate girdles which can be damaged if you are unlucky and bash them.

cvaldes13:  I get a lot of positive responses from my ring but one time I had the rudest comment! Some people just stare, and some people compliment it. One time I had a woman tell my husband and myself that we’ll regret spending so much on a diamond when we can’t put our kids through college. It was so rude and snarky, I actually responded “luckily we’re independently wealthy and our future kids have trust funds in place”. SO NOT TRUE but she was really rude!! She just walked away.

Not my ERing just a family ring I love that is an omc. It photographs white but IRL it is quite warm. I never noticed though until I got my e ring (and now I know more abt diamond colors) and compared them next to each other. Its not a bad warm in any way though it’s still quite a beauty. I believe it’s around 1.5 carats. I think yours will be stunning!!!
