Hi PSer's, I've been lurking for a while (months) - gathering, absorbing, searching for information about round brilliants. I think I have done well, but please let me know if something seems amiss, I still have some time for a return! :)

First, thanks for everyone who contributes to all the threads - they are an archive of invaluable information and sources of inspiration...

On to the show:

Stone:
0.61 ct round brilliant
AGS-graded H, SI1, eye-clean
Hearts and arrows
Depth: 60.8%
Table: 56.3%
Crown: 33.9°
Table: 40.9°

Setting:
4-prong, 2.7mm thick band, custom platinum setting from Charles Koll, San Diego
Currently size 6, but will resize likely down to 5.5 or so after the proposal

Some homemade pics to follow... Still can't quite take a good picture of the diamond with 'black' arrows with ambient lighting (reflector arrows, not arrows through H&A viewer)

Thanks for looking and thanks again for everyone's contributions to PS!

ps-for those wondering on budget (that was one major thing I learned from PS) - diamond was ~$1250, ring was ~$650...

One more before-on-finger pic... I think I figured out how to get some decent black arrows... dark background + white reflector (white in the place of pink in the idealscope)... still needs some work!!!

Thats lovely! I really love the side view where you can see the diamond sitting there!

Gorgeous!

PS: If you want a good arrows shot, have the light source coming from behind the diamond... I have the best success placing the ring on a window sill.

Thanks for the comments! Dreamer, I''ll try the windowsill (light from behind) camera shot to try and get better arrows!
