I just finished writing about a pink shield cut.#808 and this is probably the same hue (color) as that shield cut, but its tone level is not as high. It is also not as flashy. I generally try not to compare a posted stone with another member of the collection, because I don’t know how easily you can find the other stone. (Brilliant idea, I will post both stones pictures here). But there is a reason for my actions. I want to demonstrate the superior properties of a shield cut with two stones that are a similar size, color etc. The superior look of the shield cut comes from being a deeper stone for its width and a better flash pattern. One draw back, as you might have guessed is that they are not well suited for darker stones.
This oval is a fine stone on its own. Clear and transparent and ready for the oval rumba, it even comes with its own bow tie. It weighs in at 4.63 carats and doesn’t mind sharing the lime light with anyone, especially a fine pink shield.
