Hi Everyone~ I have been eyeing the Victoria pendant 1.00 ctw for a while; I finally got to try it in person yesterday. The pendant gives a good amount of sparkles and I love the shape. However, DH says the "lines" in the middle of the diamonds make them look "dirty." I suppose it is the bow-tie effect that he sees. My SA, on the other hand, says she doesn't see lines or dark spots at all. Here is a link to the pendant: http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Item.aspx?fromGrid=1&sku=14743715&mcat=&cid=&search_params=s+1-p+1-c+-r+-x+-n+6-ri+-ni+0-t+victoria+pendant&search=1 For those of you who own the pendant, or have seen it IRL, are the "lines" on the stones obvious to you? For reference, I have diamond pieces in round brilliant and cushion brilliant (not cushion modified brilliant) only. Maybe I am just too used to seeing the patterns on these stones? Thanks in advance!
