Re: Opinion on this 1.1 carat "champagne" diamond

Okay, that is awesome that you have seen the stone and it is lighter in person!!! I love the idea of the white metal shank and the rose gold head, personally! I am just not sure a plain white metal setting would do justice to your stone. Agree with DS here. If you just put it in white metal around ...

Re: Opinion on this 1.1 carat "champagne" diamond

I guess I'm just nervous about sending the stone through the mail channel and the waiting to get it back. Any experiences? The first one in the mail is always nerve racking however, I've sent way too many gems and diamonds across the US and out of the country, and so have many on here. David Klass ...

Re: Yellow asscher chrysoberyl

well i'd planned to do two tone like my round chryso, but the color is not really lending itself to yg at all, when I had it w/it. Maybe it will grow on me I guess.

Re: Peach engagement ring suggestions

shape, color I like 1 and 2 the best.

Face up size will look identical almost (you are paying more/ carat weight on the second) seeing in person will help you figure out which one you like the best.

Any enhancements done to the 2nd stone?

Re: Help me choose between these 3

option 1, great stone, budget wise and I like my arrows a little fatter (my personal preference) although too bad option 3 is a little hazy :nono: - BUT who needs strong fluoro in an D E F stone anyways? :confused:

Re: Are "spready" diamonds good or bad?

don't knock out diamonds in the 2 range... I've seen too many good diamonds to totally reject diamonds in the 2 range. Further evaluation is needed like this

Re: Still looking...opinions please

very pretty ring and substantial. I will say that you will definitely notice a size difference even with a 2.5ct and to double halo that will be one really blinged out finger.

Re: Still looking...opinions please

Not sure what your budget it, but this is a better J (cheaper if wired) size is not noticeably different, but the impact of the cut will be a better performer.

Re: I need help. Is my diamond diameter too small?

your pavilion angle is what is causing the HCA score unfortunately which causes some leakage here. I don't mind the crown actually BUT again your pavilion has to work with the crown angle.
