    What do you think of this Diamond for an engagement ring

    @monipod - It was gone by the time he posted, so I'm guessing he did what a lot of people new to this site do; bought a diamond, then asked for help retrospectively, knowing with BN that they can return the diamond if they don't like it. People are so often dazzled by the first stone they...

    What do you think of this Diamond for an engagement ring

    @collinmaune - No sign of you here recently so this is probably irrelevant to you - but I just wanted to let you know that the diamond and setting I had for sale went to the person who had originally planned to buy it before you started this thread. So it's no longer for sale. I hope you find...

    The Forum Engagement Ring Folder/Eye Candy

    @Adri01 - My word, that's pretty! I love delicate 3 stones! And I agree - a slimmed down shank would be even better. Love it! Thank you for telling us what size your finger is; for those contemplating a ring like yours, finger size gives a sense of proportion. Congratulations!

    Resetting Costco princess diamond studs into side stones?

    Wow! They are SO lovely!

    Yummy vanilla 1.93ct R AVC

    I know, right? Something about that stone was just begging to be a cluster from day 1. I think that's part of getting a successful setting; find the spirit of a stone and go with it, rather than trying to make it fit with a preconceived idea.

    I’m resetting my tapered baguette setting..

    Hold my beer. Seriously. On the other hand, I reset because I like all different sorts of things and because I'm still upgrading my diamond. So it's more like a hobby than a destination. As soon as I accepted *that*, I was fine with it and it didn't seem so bad. I'll upgrade my diamond...

    What do you think of this Diamond for an engagement ring

    I have to say - it's a perfect match. I'm not allowed to suggest my own things here, and I had thought my diamond was sold, so it was irrelevant anyway. As it turns out, the sale fell through about half an hour ago, so it isn't sold and it's bang on the knocker for what the OP is looking for.

    How much homework for kindergarten?

    Both my god kids are at university now, but I positively ground my teeth watching the amount of homework they both had - from kindergarten to their senior high school year. Elementary school was easily an hour a night, middle school was double that, and high school was double *that*. I...

    Need some help with a small budget ;(

    Yes, I used to own that diamond. It's beautiful. I ultimately traded up with WF only a few months ago. I think .62ct on a size 5.5 finger is a beautiful combination for a promise ring. Very generous and lovely. If she's chosen a certain setting she'd like, I'd say to get that; it's not up to...

    Need some help with a small budget ;(

    Hi @Likesomehelp - I am VERY familiar with the .625 G VS2 diamond WF recommended. Probably more so than anyone else here. I can assure you - it's a beautiful diamond, VERY white and sparkly, and eye catching. More to the point than the size of the diamond, tho, is - what size is your...

    Looking for someone to re-cut modern cushions into vintage style

    Hi @Lessics - No, I didn't. I ended up selling them.

    What do you think of this Diamond for an engagement ring

    So is a 1.2ct diamond ok or not? The one I linked to is WAY better than the one you have. The difference in performance will be completely noticeable. It's in your budget. But it's obviously not floating your boat.... So when you say 'over 1.2ct' - do you actually mean "I found a 1.4ct...

    What do you think of this Diamond for an engagement ring

    So, are you saying you want a K colored diamond? You'll see tint in a J as well, but not markedly like in a K. Where did she see a K colored diamond? Was it in a store?

    Do you filter your selfies?

    (@missy - pls excuse the brief threadjack) @yssie - when it comes time for me to buy some pearls, can I pls just tell you what I want, write you a check, and leave you to it? There is no way I could find the beauties you find and your taste is exquisite. People accumulate fabulous collections...

    Received a fedex label but no box..How to mail?

    FedEx has boxes, yes. But you can also use your own box. I prefer theirs, tho.

    Do you filter your selfies?

    I don't mind people doing funny filters, or animal filters, or pirate filters, or any filter of that kind. That's just fun, and why not? It's the beauty filters that take off 50 lbs and increase eye size by 50% and remove any and all physical blemishes - and are then passed off as real - that...

    Do you filter your selfies?

    No. I've seen filters that are so strong, they almost eliminate entire features in photos - eg - people with almost no identifiable nose, or no belly button. And as for pores on skin - nary a sign! I think I'd rather use no filter and look old and ugly than use a filter and look like a...

    I’m resetting my tapered baguette setting..

    For my money, definitely like they were previously set. I LOVE that way of setting baguettes - really emphasizes the architectural feel of them. Very elegant.

    What do you think of this Diamond for an engagement ring

    Ok. I'll bite the bullet on this. Not a good diamond. The HCA score doesn't mean you should buy it - nor does it mean the stone isn't ugly. It just means it's worth considering it. So - having considered this one, it would be a hard no from me. Firstly, it's too deep. You're sacrificing real...

    I’m resetting my tapered baguette setting..

    To be honest, I'm glad to hear this, @Mamabean. I find the bezel jarring with the prong-set center, and I LOVE your original setting. I agree - slightly higher is nice, and makes your diamond more visually central, and I completely understand what you mean about corner prongs making a round...

    New (to me!) Tiffany classic set- .58ct

    Hallo @Logan Sapphire :wavey: Super classy new ring! Very elegant, and a perfect size for your finger for a more petite look, while still having noticeable presence. All in all - great balance! Lovely. :))

    @IDtoTX - congratulations on your gorgeous ring! Is the setting a CBI design? I love it! And @Tekate - when do you go to Texas? Will you be in the Boston area before you leave? Would love to catch up again before you go! ox

    Big blue beauty arrived today.

    @lucida818 - I believe it's 21mm long. Maybe 18mm wide at its widest point? It's a big pearl - lots of presence - which is, ideally, what I wanted.

    Big blue beauty arrived today.

    @kipari - I agree with you. Hearts can look beautiful and feminine. Or they can look like something at the farthest point possible from elegant. They can also look very...young. Getting it right is tricky. I like hearts, but don't wear a lot of them. But when I saw this one, many years...
