Stunningly gorgeous! You have beautiful hands! Congratulations!!
Thank you @Hum-ble for your kind comment :wavey:


Busy weekend with my daughter and SIL in town, so that's why I am late replying!

As you know, I love your new diamond and setting! :love: There's nothing more classic than a Tiffany style diamond ring, and I certainly have enjoyed having a similar setting for a long time! I do prefer a beautiful superideal cut in that setting, though, and the 2.1 ct looks pretty huge on your small finger! That would be a holy grail ring for most people, and I know very few people in my local circle that wear a diamond larger than that. So it is certainly a great size even if you never upgrade or add side stones.
thank you @diamondseeker2006 I have always valued your sage advice. Thank you for all your input through this process. :wavey:


Oh my god. What a beautiful collection
Thank you @Sexypiggy (love your handle). =)2

Congrats on your spectacular new stone @LLJsmom!!! :kiss2: You got this ring totally right - it’s super classic, so elegant and really the crème de la crème! I hope she falls into rotation with MK and that you could appreciate each for their own beauty. I’ve come to realize...there isn’t a right or wrong, just different stepping stones in our bling journey!
Thank you @ac117 appreciate your wise words. It is a journey. I’m impatient and I wish I could teleport to the destination now. :lol-2:

I'm little late to the party but just wanted to say again that your new icy white D colored CBI looks blindingly beautiful! :love: I only wish I had tiny fingers like you!

I'd be interested in seeing which ER you will wear more often over time now that you have a MRB and OEC--the best of both worlds IMHO! :appl:

Happy early anniversary to you! :wavey:

Thank you @m-2-b ! :wavey: Which do you wear more?

This is so beautiful, and I absolutely love it paired with your juicy band! :kiss2:

Such a lovely classic beauty! You are a lucky lady! It looks huge on you, did you mention your finger size anywhere, just for reference?

I'm always late to comment, but have been popping in to ogle at your beautiful new ring all weekend! It is truly a HG of a ring! I think you have the best of both worlds, an icy white modern RB, and a creamy colored old cut for a completely different look!

If I were you I would wear the different looks depending on your outfit of the day. If I were wearing solid colors and structured pieces, I'd choose the MRB, but when wearing a floral, or lacy romantic outfit, I'd choose the OEC!

STUNNING diamond and in the most classic and romantic setting to showcase it!!
I love how past loves can reemerge into our hearts once again. I never thought I'd love a MRB again, but they are so magical aren't they ;)2?

It looks crazy big in the pictures, it's a total bombshell!!

Thank you @jaysonsmom How clever you are! I never even thought about that. Maybe it's because I don't have anything that is romantic. LOL. But I get the idea, and it makes sense. Will think about that every time I wear something that isn't black, white, blue or gray.

@JDDN I'm not sure this would have happened if it wasn't for you. Seriously. THANK YOU. I felt like I couldn't proceed without your counsel. I cannot thank you enough. :wavey: How I got so lucky to get to know you is...just don't know. Thank you. ( Ahhh. Thank you @LaylaR.)

And yes, this "past loves" thing. LOL! Midlife crisis rears it's sparkly head?

Awww, you!!!! It is so much easier (and more fun!) to make such choices and decisions with friends though isn't it? I'm glad you had a bling crew to share in your process and I am very appreciative of our friendship LLJ!!

Sorry I'm late chiming in -- it is my super busy season work-wise and I have been off PS for awhile in an attempt to get projects out the door to clients.

Your diamond and setting look SPECTACULAR!!!!!!

I love love love that you appreciate and love the D color in a MRB. Nothing compares to that true icy-whiteness!

To me, your CBI solitaire is exactly perfect. It looks incredible on your hand and paired with your band. I do not think it is too much bling, it is simply divine!

We are sisters in both our CBI diamonds and our rings! I swear that is my setting exactly!

Remember the old tv show Wonder Twins? They had magic rings that matched --- that's us!!! They'd say "Wonder Twins, activate"...and then press their magic rings together. LOL!!

We need to recreate this pic if we ever meet at a CBI or PS get together!

Anyway, enjoy your awesome ring!! You wear it like a queen!

Thank you @RunningwithScissors . Busy is good. =)2 Thank you for sharing your thoughts and the videos, demonstrating the "power of the sparkle". It was helpful to know that there is a person out there that knew they needed a D right off the bat, to the extent of committing to a custom cut. I felt a little less nuts. Are you enjoying your stone? I am having fun getting to know it. It surprises me all the time. :kiss2: Yes, and hopefully when covid is over, we can meet up at a GTG and activate those Wonder Twin powers, although mine is more of a little sister to your big one.

I love the ice white of a D! Beautiful!
Thank you @Rons Wolfe . Yeah. I enjoy the iciness.

OMG - don't check in for a week, and see what I missed!
This is absolutely gorgeous, and looks perfect on your hand.
It looks scrumptious with the band!
Yes, videos would be awesome! The difference in the colors in your comparison photo D - H - K is really highlighted that icy whiteness!

I haven’t been on Pricescope in months and this stunning gem lured me back in! Wow! It’s breathtaking and PERFECT. I can’t imagine how icy white this is IRL. Best wishes!! Can I ask how it fits with your 5 stone? I am looking forward to a new E ring for my 15th anniversary next year and want a nice 2 ct solitaire. I saw yours has a little donut but it seems to fit nicely. Can you share the setting details? Thank you and congratulations!

Thank you @Rockredo The setting is the Boston Classic modified. My 5 stone fits next to it but I think there is some scratching to the ering. I actually don’t care if the ring setting is scratched. I just don’t want the diamonds in the five stone damaged. HPD did the CAD. First time I’ve worked with CADs. Easy.

I see you’re deciding between cushion or round. Hope this helps.
