As many of you may know, I have been in the process of upgrading my center stone for a few months now.

I went from a .74 vs2 F princess to a 1.53 SI2 J Radiant.  The setting had to be redone bc the new center wouldn''t fit in the existing head, but it was done the same way.  It is a channel setting with 6 princesses on each side.  I am really happy with it!  ImageImage

There is slight yellow tinge in bright sun, like today!  But, once my metal starts to lose it''s rhodium, it will look fine.  All in all I am happy, maybe in a year or 2 I will upgrade color, but not size.  Love the size, actually, I wish my band was thinner, like a 1/2 carat instead of 1 carat.

1.53 Radiant
6.86 x 6.32 x 4.46mm
