The re-cut thread
So there are lots and lots of discussions of re-cuts going on, so I thought it would be useful to have an re-cut thread.

I'll start with the moissy OMC I owned at one point. It was an 9mm RB cut into an 8mm OMC.

It started off as a 9mm RB moissy.

And you think it was MNO, turks? Did it have a high crown?

RE: The re-cut thread
Did this one lose a lot due to a "pillow top"?

McSparkles was the mastermind of both the OMC and Antique Oval recuts! I think she said that both stones ended up the same color right?

RE: The re-cut thread
From what I remember reading, it does not have a high crown. I just want AGs to come out so that we can all start recutting the heck out of them. lol

RE: The re-cut thread
no, it had a flat crown.

(whoops on the original size, clearly my memory is not the best)

Ginger, I agree. I keep asking questions about it because it makes me feel like I'm getting closer to it.

RE: The re-cut thread
Yeah, I for sure want an Antique Cushion and an Antique Oval. I definitely want the high crown/pillow top, so I may just recut the OECs, but I'm hoping you sparkle fiends will pave the way and I'll get to see what they look like before I try it. haha.

RE: The re-cut thread
OH, and yea, I thought it was MNO. Have we seen any re-cuts go bad recently? It seems like the bad brown re-cuts may be from the old C&C stock, right?

I am thinking/hoping that we will be able to re-cut a krupps into an oval. There might be a lot of loss though...I'm not sure. I'd love to do blakes ring with an AG but can stand a flat top
