Here's a hidden treasure I dug up over at my buddy's office the other day- he'd cut it the beginning of 2019- and this was the first time I had been over since then. I fell in love with this one at first sight.

It's so rare to find a stone cut like this, in this color. The cushion brilliant facet patter ostensibly looks antique, but modern precision is evident in the symmetrical appearance.

Plus, he was able to take a relatively shallow piece of rough- so we have a 1.29ct that looks like a 1.60ct. There's no penalty for the depth.

In bright lighting, the color is super evident. Even in dim lighting- there's fire and flashes.

True, it is priced more like a 1.60ct Y-Z, this is still a great value.

PS- my buddy sent it for a "color only" GIA report, anticipating that he wasn't going to get Fancy Light Yellow. I'd send it back if GIA weren't taking as long as they are to turn stones around.

However, it really doesn't matter- the stone speaks for itself.

Tons of fire.
