Unehanced RBs: "new" cut & rough
Okay! Finally am home and have taken a couple photos of the "new" cut (but not H&A) RB moissies that I recently bought from poppyseed. Big Grin I decided to use an older 14kt mount I already had and asked the bench to set it as low as possible. The original stone was 9.5mm (It was sold to me as a 9mm Confused ) so, although the head was still useable, the proportions make it look rather squash-y. LOL! Good thing it's mostly for travel purposes.

First, the 8.5mm flanked by 6.5mm (x2) earrings. Although they look a bit warm, I think it's the warm creamy paint in my office that's reflecting. IRL, they're all very white!

I'm surprised that I actually like the RBs now! I was prepared to send them back, 'cause I'm so used to (and completely smitten with) OECs/transitionals. Wink

Yikes! Forgive the dry skin on my hand!!! Dodgy

This is more the color I see IRL. It's white but not crazy-white.

I took a couple quick snaps on my iPhone of the earrings, but ICK! Not gonna post 'em. Crackup I was dashing out to a yoga class and let's just say the photos left a lot to be desired. LOL! My diamond OEC studs are a shade under 6mm and I didn't really think the extra +/- .5mm would make much of a difference. Uhm, wrong! Perhaps it's the cut, but the RBs look huge, to my eye. I'm used to them, though, and it's really nice to not worry if I lose one/both, when I'm travelling. Heart

Oh I love a classic solitaire. So Elegant. Beautiful! So happy that you do like it being an old cut lover. I just started to wear the RB three stone and I'm also finding I am rather enjoying the sparkle of a RB again...

They look really beautiful. Love how low set the solitaire is.

I get distracted by shiny things

One day, I'll be a crazy old lady weighed down by all my baubles and it will be glorious.

Thanks so much, lovely peeps! Big Grin

I shall take photos of the earrings while wearing them, but reserve the right to be disgusted and not post 'em. LOL!

Those are some of the best pix of moissanite I've seen! Usually the sparkle makes the stone seem blurry. Beautiful stones!!
