Love Affair Diamonds  A Vintage Jewelry Boutique specializing in hand selected loose antique diamonds, custom settings and vintage fine jewelry. Seattle, WA.

How is this OEC an SI2? I had it appraised in the setting, but maybe it needs to go to AGS 🤔...my laziness is your gain, I'm offering this ring as a 1.08ct L SI2 on IG special through the weekend priced at $3,785 (15% off the site price!) but if it doesn't sell, off it goes to AGS - I'm betting it will come back better, which means the price will go ☝️☝️☝️! Best "SI2" ever!!!

IG SPECIAL ALERT! I'm featuring another gorgeous #loveaffairdiamonds "petite" (aka, a nice sized vintage diamond ring that's budget friendly!) engagement ring that won't break the bank! This is a positively stunning 1.08ct (estimated) Old European Cut diamond, appraised at L, SI2 (very conservative, as this diamond is eye clean!) set in a gorgeous 18k vintage solitaire, and the diamond has faint fluorescence too! The faceting on it is just stunning - a big bright flowery pattern visible from a distance, with beautiful symmetry (both polish and symmetry graded as very good!), brilliance and colored light play. Like a little kaleidoscope on your hand! Diamond measures approx 6.5mm. Size 6.5, sizable. Priced at $4450 on the site, but through the weekend I'll offer it on IG special for...are you ready? $3,785!!! An over 1ct top-tier cut antique diamond ring for under $4k you guys! This is an amazing value!! - tell your friends, as this beautiful ring deserves a forever home!

My 2.15ct GIA K VS1 in all her glory...😍

Art Deco beachy vibe here at LAD today! Love this funky stacker band by @stullerinc !

#willyoumarryme ... nothing beats a big sparkly gem in a classic and elegant solitaire 😍. This is a perfect example - a 9mm Antique Cushion cut #loveaffairmoissanite set in a rose gold solitaire by @stullerinc , finished with claw prongs, courtesy of my wonderful local setter. I know I'd say #ido !!!

Let's play #whatsinthebox ! Coming soon, this stunning 1.60ct GIA H, VS1 vintage oval diamond in rose gold solitaire by designer @maytalhannah . Pre-loved and in excellent condition. And did I mention the spread on this bad boy? 10.41 x 6.47 x 3.60mm - looks positively huge on the finger! DM for presale info!

And the winning combo is...all yellow gold!!! I was THIIIIIS close to opting for the plat center/yellow sides, which also looks great with this trio of stones, but from a design perspective I love the idea of the whole ring in rich yellow gold. With the rustic cuts of these #oldminecut #diamonds, and the sheer magnitude of the 5.86ctw on my size 6 finger, I think I need to keep the design simple, and two tone will be busier and more complex for the design I have in mind. THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who participated in my poll!!! There's still a chance I might flip-flop back to the plat center/yellow sides, lol, since now it's time to actually come up with a design for these suckers!!!

#loveaffairmoissanite deliciousness, in rose gold solitaire by @stullerinc , finished with claw prongs. Show here is a 9x9mm antique cushion colorless moissy - one of my favorite moissanite cuts!!! (Gorgeous ring box by @amonieringboxes )

Fresh out of production is this stunning #loveaffairdiamonds "Jeni" solitaire, set with my client's LAD 1.70ct GIA M VVS2 Old European Cut diamond, in luxuriously rich 18k yellow gold. GORGEOUS! If you love exquisite details from every angle, this is the ring for you! Starting with the truly unique #LADSignature fleur de lis claq prongs sitting atop a crown of pave and petals, with diamond accented shoulders and head-to-toe engraving. This setting pairs beautifully in a ring stack and is available to order in any metal, for any center stone. DM or email me if you'd like a #LADJeni of your very own!

Something got into me this morning - I'm feeling so accomplished. I've baked a cake from scratch (just a simple French yogurt cake, it's the only thing I know how to bake lol), am prepping a home cooked lunch for my family, and have a pot of homemade bone broth going in my instant pot. It's so unlike me, but maybe I'll do this every Sunday...🤔🍰🥩🥣 I've never been much for baking or cooking, but I feel so...relaxed and domestic. I should bust out my vacuum cleaner before this feeling wears off... #domesticgoddess

Ok guys, swipe to see this morning's experiment with diamond color!!! Following yesterday's post seeking advice on how to marry my 3.76ct GIA M antique cushion with these 2.10ctw GIA G/H sides, which are beautifully matched in every way but color, I busted out my multicolored stone holders, and it was actually super helpful! I have two favorites of the bunch, but I want to know which metal combo is most pleasing to your eye! Shown here are all yellow, all white, and two kinds of two-tone. It's remarkable how much the metal color affects perceived diamond color - something to always consider when setting diamonds, especially warmer colors. Comment with your thoughts!!! PS - for what it's worth, I just polled my 13 year old and her two faves were the exact opposite of my two faves! So there's no wrong answer!!!

#newarrival !!! This gorgeous pre-loved 1.43ct GIA G, SI1 (100% eye clean) #augustvintage (diamond by @augustvintage ) in platinum #loveaffairdiamonds "Julia" solitaire. DM for pre-sale deets!
