It's so gorgeous Audball!!! I love that setting and the stone is just beautiful - it looks amazing on you, I hope you don't have to wait too long to wear it for good!

It's so beautiful and special. I've been really impressed with your belief, so to speak, in this diamond and your determination not to compromise on the setting. And it paid off. You've got something to treasure forever.

Yay!!! It's soooo pretty! And it looks perfect on your finger Audball!

After your earlier posts, I was so sad I wasn't going to see pictures, but here I come to see lots! Let's hope you don't have to wait TOO long to wear it on your ring finger every day!

Love, love, love! I've posted before asking about an OEC in that Sholdt and it's even nicer than I expected. It was pointed out that perhaps a modern cut would match the modern setting design best but...I think the clean bezel and lines really showcase the OEC faceting. Well done, quite beautiful.

Congratulations on your engagement!

Thank you! I did get some :wink2: thoughts, but I LOVED this setting and I LOVED OECs. I think it came out beautifully. I ADORE the profile of this setting and I think it's even better with a super high crown of an OEC.

It's GORGEOUS!!!

I've been totally MIA for a week catching up on work, but I just HAD to chime in and tell you how amazing it looks. Such a beautiful mix of sleek and modern, and old world elegance. It's got amazing personality without trying too hard. It also looks HUGE on your hand! I never would guess it's less than a carat!

Is anyone interested in creating a Sholdt thread? There are threads already for lovers of bezels, OECs, yellow gold, etc. There are a number of fans for this Sholdt - it would be delicious to have pictures, diamond stats and finger sizes all in one place!

Aww, thanks! I was really wanting a caratish, but this fit our budget well! I'm blushing with the compliments!!

In that case, I'll start a Sholdt thread in SMTB! Care to be the first contribution? Pics, handshots, fingers size, and stone stats?
Re: We bought a diamond...

Post by audball » May 16th, 2012, 9:44 am
I will post a teaser Chris! I'm not going to do a full fledged SMTB thread of it's own until we are officially engaged. But I'd be happy to participate (and ogle!).

It looks wonderful. Now, I demand :tongue: that you take the ring and camera by a window with natural lighting, or outside under a tree in the shade, and take some really good photos so I can get my FIX! These dark gloomy shots will just NOT do my dear!!!

OH believe me! This is not the last you'll see. We got home after sunset with it last night and today it's gray and running....no sun at all! I'll take some more as soon as I can and will do a video too.

Your ring is simply beautiful. For a long time that has been my favorite setting, but as an OEC fan I've never truly considered it. Every time it comes up on the boards, people seem to be discouraged from it because of the open setting and the super modern clean lines. I think you made an excellent choice and agree that they compliment each other beautifully.

Thanks Sun-Shine!

And Rhea - thank you very much! I have always loved both this setting and OECs. I think they go together wonderfully and I doubt I'll ever truly upgrade this! The stone is just too special. I have no doubts I'll buy bigger ones in the future, but I don't think I'll ever part with this little ring.
