Some stones you remember cutting for a long time, even if the details fade. This standard round brilliant came forth from a flaw piece of rough. I had to fight for every fraction of a carat and I just made my angels before I ran out of material. I needed to make this one work because it is an absolutely beautiful red that is blessed with the ideal tone and level of saturation that I have always looked for in a red. And all this in a eye clean round with great crystal. All the flaws are a memory that only I still feel. Despite its smaller size this GEM grab a high end dealer’s eye and got the accolade that there was a superior red. As the color parade rolls on, this 2.40 carat red will be out there in front.
