I’m Anthony. I’m a nurse (in hospital leadership) in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. I’ve been in love with diamonds and colored gemstones for over a decade. I’m a big geek for cut symmetry and beauty. I mostly have gemstones in my collection, but I have had a couple ideal cut diamonds over the years. I had a H&A in a custom solitaire I had designed - lost that one at a restaurant in Arizona. I also had a August Vintage round in a custom solitaire I had designed - lost that one at work. Sadly, both were uninsured.
Anyways, I wanted to share my most recent project. I’m super happy about it. I just can’t stop staring at it!! It’s a 0.89 J VS1from that is set in a custom solitaire. I designed and drew the solitaire with influence from William White’s style. I had it cast by a local goldsmith. I wanted a half bezel to help open the setting up and I love how that turned out. I also wanted unplated and unpolished 14k white gold to help bring out the white nature of the J colored diamond. I definitely think that worked!
I am just so over the top happy with it. Nobody has really noticed it yet, but I can’t stop staring at it I’m trying to attach a couple videos. Not sure if I know how, but let’s see!
