SOLD! 1.01ct Antique Cushion Cut Diamond - N/O, VS (est.)


Product Description

I took one look at this uniquely beautiful antique cushion cut diamond in Vegas, and had to buy it!  I am being 100% honest when I say that it was an impulse buy fueled by my simple desire to rescue and re-home it and that, at this price, I'm making less profit on it than the cost of my dinner in Vegas the night I bought it, lol.  Is it a weird stone?  Yes.  Is it funky?  Yes.  Does it have great light return?  Not especially.  Is it crazy beautiful and full of quirky charm and character?  HELL YES!  

This diamond is uncerted, so I'll do my best to describe its qualities.  It has these awesome maltese cross facets under the table, framing a giant culet.  The diamond's perimeter is faceted (I count 14) like whatever a 14-sided octagon would be called, and is just begging for a custom bezel to emphasize the shape.  I think it would look totally sick set with an onyx surround, actually!  It would be gorgeous in a ring, pendant or even bezel set on a bangle.  It's super shallow and spready, and kind of looks like an antique cushion/portrait cut love child.  The color may appear saturated in the white background pic, but in person it's actually very bright and white on the hand, due to the shallow cut.  I just ADORE everything about it, and know with certainty that I'll never see another one like it!

Diamond measures approximately 7.5 x 6mm - faces up like a 1.5ct!
