The second necklace came today. I think they are well matched and will be gorgeous as earrings.

One consequence of having these as comparators is that it’s pretty clear the diamonds in my ring are not anywhere close to the specs they were sold to me as. I can’t be too upset as the price was fantastic and the ring is still beautiful and sparkly, but it was not truth in advertising!

I wouldn’t use these as the most accurate gauge. Lightbox says it’s stones are G-J, VS range, very good cut. I suspect they are publishing those specs to add to the impression that these are fashion jewelry stones and as a protection in the event of variance. Many of the stones might actually be at the higher end of the scales. When GIA graded two stones they found one was excellent cut and that the only thing keeping them from VVS was the Lightbox laser inscription.

Thanks for the kind words. I think you are right about Lightbox being at the higher end of the range (and a superb bargain in that case). Even so, the diamonds in my ring were sold to me as F color and VS2 clarity. I’ve got a magnifying lens for textile work (not a real loupe) and I can’t see any sort of inclusions in the lightbox one (I can’t even find the logo - guess I need higher magnification). In my ring diamonds, I can see a black inclusion in one and some feathers/needles under magnification. The black inclusion is the only one I can see by eye, and only with my un-corrected near-sighted vision. Looking at some examples of diamonds with VS2 clarity grades, these don’t seem to make the cut. I guess that tells me I can be happy with lower clarity grades as long as they are sparkly. :) I love my ring, but it‘s definitely interesting to compare the different stones.
