  • The only type Cognac to get drunk on
Hello
« on: January 16, 2012, 02:10:59 PM »

Have been a fan of colored fancy's for years and so am enjoying this site.
Am living in Florida at present. Just bought a lovely cognac diamond but
for the life of me can't figure out how to do the avatar thing. Did get a
couple of photos on the photo bucket page but can't get it to upload as
an avatar. Any ideas on how to accomplish this would be appreciated.

Finally figured out how to upload the avatar --- it
isn't showing the stone to it's best. Am most assuredly
enjoying it and will wear it in good health. Am loving my
new beauty. Thank you for your lovely comment.

OK - have posted at the place recommended. The photo still isn't
doing it justice as was just taken and not in the best light. The
photo isn't capturing all the lovely orange sparkles that gleam
and dance holding ones attention. But this is most definitely
better than the avatar photo.

HI G!
Welcome to Cdi!

I understand you love cognac- so I thought I'd give you a look at a diamond we're considering that really might be close to a nice cognac in terms of color....

Ahhhh! Well, I'm not G, but I love it if that's any help. Beautiful warm colour, would look amazing in pink gold. Pink halo maybe? Or crisp white? Oh, it's lovely.

First of all welcome again!  I hope you enjoy it here G! 

I do love that emerald though.  I would love to see it as a three stone ring myself with icy step cut trap sides.

I'm lodging a complaint.  This diamond is a hazard to my health and should be equipped with a warning.  I just choked, and I wasn't even drinking anything! 

SERIOUSLY though.  I came here because I loved the high standards.  I was not a huge fan of colored diamonds.  This has changed and I hold you personally responsible, mister!
