She’s here and I think she’s beautiful! Thank you to @OoohShiny, @Karl_K, @Rockdiamond, @maita13, @marcy, @AV_ and ALL the gorgeous diamonds in the emerald cut threads. You guys did this newbie good as far as I’m concerned. I did the best I could with ZERO experience in diamond picking. I have no idea if this is a well cut diamond or not, but it does make me happy when I look at it and that is really its purpose to me. If anyone sees any huge red flag, emerald cut “NoNo”s, please let me know, but I think I’ll keep her! This site has also inspired me to try and dress up her setting a tad in the future.

So here we go:
1.7 J VVS2
L/W ratio 1.35
Depth 64.5% Table 67% ( Breakin’ the law :p)
Polish: Ex; Symmetry: Ex
Girdle: Med to Thick
Cutlet: none
Fluorescence: Med Blue
M: 7.97 x 5.9 x 3.81

Natural daylight indoors

I had a couple of videos but I can’t figure out how to post them.I think this stone does have less fire than my last EC, but she still flashes quite a bit and while I still see the warmth of the J, it seems less so than my last so maybe that fluorescence helped! It’s a pretty cool party trick anyway. Thanks again! And I’m already plotting my next upgrade! 3 carat goals

She is STUNNING❤❤!!!! I’m so happy that looking at her brings you joy. I think at the end of the day, feelings evoked by a piece of jewelry is what makes it perfect.

I love the fluorescence, the elongated ratio of 1:35, the simple and elegant setting and most especially, the little angel serving as the perfect backdrop to a perfect ring❤. Well done, @Emrldlvr! Congrats!!

ETA: It is a well cut diamond IMHO. So you should have no worries in that regard.

Thank you @maita13! That little sleeping angel in the background is what really inspired me to go for the upgrade. She’s my first little girl after 3 little boys and I want to leave her something really special when it’s all said and done; so I had to work her in the pics somwhow❤☺

Nice!!

I think that looks awesome - interesting facet patterning that isn't all-on/all-off, the narrow ends are working well, and it looks super-classy in a solitaire setting :))

That fact it makes you happy when you look at it, and it distracts you, is exactly how diamonds should be IMO ;-) so enjoy wearing it! :)

We will be happy to help you look for an upgrade when it is that time ;-) lol

@Emrldlvr your ring turned out gorgeous! :appl:I can totally see why it makes you happy every time you look at it. It looks like a beautiful diamond and I think the florescent blue is a bonus. Congratulations on your beautiful ring and baby daughter.

I. Love. This. It's the pinnacle of classy and BEAUTIFUL. Your set is drop-dead gorgeous. I adore simply set ECs paired with a plain band. Again, utterly sleek and CLASSY.

PS -- how darling is your little one!! :kiss2:

Oh thanks so much @KristyDarling !! I like the simplicity of it as well although I feel like it could be a little more special. Even if it is just changing the prongs or some engraving on the basket, but maybe I’ll save that for the goal rock

Lots of people do those little tweaks all the time! But if you'd rather wait for now, what do you think about getting a little diamond pave band, for days when you want to jazz things up? :bigsmile:

I love your emerald! I wanted one, but the budget didn’t allow a bigger carat weight. I’m now a fan of fluorescence and I love your pic with the blue tint. So cool. What was the color of your previous stone? I may not be color sensitive at all bc I don’t see warmth, but more of a cooler color.

Thank you @diamondsR4eVR ! My previous stone was a J as well. Other characteristics were more important to me than color, so that was one way I was able to get bigger. There is less warmth to this stone, also a J, than my last but I still do notice the warmth; however, I’m starting to think I may prefer a warmer stone. I don’t know if it’s just what I’m used to now. The previous stone did not have fluorescence so I do think it’s helped balance the warmth in the sunlight in this case. Plus, it brings down the price! I loved my previous ring as well though. Your ring is so beautiful and fits your hand perfectly! I’m a sucker for emerald cuts, but I often find myself transfixed by my friends’ rounds. Enjoy and thanks again!
