Hi PS'ers!!

I'm the proud new owner of yet another beautiful ring from ID Jewelry! :appl:

My original engagement ring (from another jeweler) was a 2.01 ct H VS2 RB solitaire with a pave/prong set band, and it was absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, it was also very uncomfortable for daily wear. The prongs on the band were not finished correctly and would poke into my surrounding fingers. I was hoping that I would get used to it over time, but 10 months later, it bothered me more than ever. The little prongs were not reparable, so I decided (with the support of my kind DH) that it was time to reset to a setting with a plain band. I spent hours poring over pictures on Pricescope and loved that the Vatche U-113 was consistently beautiful in all the versions that I saw. I am very grateful for all the PS'ers that took their time to post their beautiful ring photos and helped me decide to go with the U-113 in platinum!

Jade has been my main point of contact at IDJ and, per usual, she knocked it out of the park. She was always patient and so helpful- even when I would change my mind from one week to the next. (I was initially considering claw-like prong tips, but scrapped that at the last minute to go back to the original design. I'm so glad I did, because these prong tips are beautiful and delicate.)

I only went one day without an engagement ring- they took my diamond measurements and called me when the setting was ready. I dropped it off right away (I work just a couple of blocks away :dance: ), and the ring was ready one day later!! Now that is speedy! :love:

Thank you IDJ for another beautiful piece of jewelry!! I LOVE this setting more than I thought I would. It is so beautiful and most importantly, COMFORTABLE! I barely feel the ring on my hand. It feels like I'm just wearing a wedding band. :love: My diamond was set very low before, and this medium height setting showcases it BEAUTIFULLY. The diamond has more presence and I feel that I see more of it through the delicate 6 prongs, than I did with a low 4 prong basket setting. It's like the diamond is floating on top of my finger. I'm so happy that I went with this setting! :appl:

Now for some pictures (with my milgrain bezel wedding band from IDJ)!

It looks beautiful - nothing like a classic solitaire. So glad that you are pleased with it as well!

Ahh... Simple and timeless :love: and your new setting goes beautifully with your band :bigsmile:

Totally off-topic and probably inappropriate but you have pretty hands! They show rings off well ::)

I thought it might be helpful for some PS'ers out there to see the difference between a low set, 4 prong, pave solitaire and a 6 prong medium height plain solitaire. (Ok TBH, my DH asked if I posted a comparison and was shocked that I hadn't posted it to begin with ;)) ). Both rings have the same 2.01 ct H VS2 Ex-Ex-Ex RB. We both see a significant difference in size, even from the top down view (more apparent in real life vs. pictures), because my previous setting was so low. Also, the plain shank lets the center diamond shine in the spotlight. :bigsmile: Not to mention that it looks much more substantial from the profile view as well! I hope that's helpful for people that are trying to choose between settings. This new setting really does my diamond justice.

I'll stop bombarding you guys with pictures now! :naughty:

Love the new pics! The new setting looks fantastic! :dance:
I especially like the comparison photos. (Thanks to your DH for mentioning the idea, lol. :clap: ). I really do think your wedding band "pops" more stacked with the new setting too! :appl:

Oh geez. Having had both a four prong and a 6 prong solitaire, I thought I'm more of a 4 prong girl. But seeing your ring and mrs-blop's solitaire, I'm totally torn! It's beautiful, graceful, classy, classic and it just showcases your gorgeous stone so well. I recently up-graded and am trying to decided on a solitaire setting for my new round brilliant and seeing your new setting has me re-thinking things :think: .
