:D  :D  :D Fantastic!  (http://www.smileys.ws/smls/action/00000033.gif) (http://www.smileys.ws/smls/action/00000033.gif) (http://www.smileys.ws/smls/action/00000033.gif)

The Facetting is amazing, isn't it?  I think Allan told me it was done by a chap named Martin Murray.  He's clearly a star as well as Allan and Harry!  

Lucky you, Simone!   :twisted:  :wink:

Wow! Simone it's truly gorgeous - well done on getting hold of that. I can see why you want to keep it by you.  8)

Simone,

That weight is Spectacular!
Congrats on a Fine acquisition!
Everything about it is simply superb.
I have a Gordon Smith weight with a diamond cut done by Ed Poore here in the states. It's over 300 KB so I can't upload it here but can email it to you off list if you contact me at   m1asmith @ aol com
Ed remarked to me that such a cut is very difficult & time consuming.
He and now, Martin Murray, are the only 2 cutters I know of to have executed such a cut.
