    Hi y’all!!
    I was asked to post pics and info on my new 3.40 I VS2 round beauty here at SMTB. I’m attaching pics, videos, certificate, HCA results and where I bought it. I bought a total of 5 diamonds over a 3 month period. I returned all but this last one that finally stole my heart. I’m so thankful I found PriceScope and the expertise and info here as well as the HCA tool. It all helped immensely. I found this stone on the PS diamond search, which led me to B2C Jewels. I highly recommend B2C Jewels (Shane) for the best customer service and service after the sale. (I had poor experiences with 2 other online vendors, so a great experience was so very appreciated). Thank you to all the PS’ers who helped me in my original thread!!

    MK

    Hi @MK Malone! Congratulations on your gorgeous, gorgeous ring! Can I ask what size finger you have? I used to own a 3.4ct diamond, but yours looks larger on your hand than mine did on mine, so I was wondering about your finger size.

    It's a beauty!

    Thank you for all the extra details and videos, it's lovely! Would you consider posting even more pictures of the side profile of your ring? There were some glimpses in the video and it looks lovely too!

    You must be thoroughly delighted!

    She’s a keeper, alright!!! Beautiful!!
    I’m so glad you had a positive experience with B2C. So many consumers come here, and find potential candidates from B2C, but no or few reviews are available for them to consider them as a trusted PS vendor.
    I assisted in the search for an EC diamond, a while back, and I believe the winner came from B2C. He was also very pleased with his experience with them, and the ring was gorgeous!
    Congratulations!! :kiss2:

    Thank you all!! @mrs-b I wear a 7.5.
    @Lykame I will post additional pics for you later today. Thank you for showing the love!! @Matthews1127 I love B2C!! I’m surprised there aren’t plenty of reviews here. They have been so kind, so patient, so eager to please. I received both diamonds very quickly, within 4-5 days of order date. When I returned the first diamond (pictured in diamond comparison video above, Diamond on the left), they mailed out my refund check within 48 hours and provided tracking. They kept in touch with me until the refund was received. I can’t say enough nice things. Very trustworthy and reliable.

    Wow, what an absolutely breathtaking stunner!! You must be so thrilled!

    It’s just drop dead gorgeous & I puffy ❤️ it big time!

    The setting is delicious. Is it rose or yellow gold? And do you have a matching band?

    This is going to be one seriously blinding set when the wedding band lands on there too! Looking forward to it’s arrival!

    I also love a warm, buttery 18ct yellow gold against my skin. It’s so luxurious. Unfortunately for me, my husband bought my entire wedding set in platinum, plus diamond pendant, so then I had my solitaire studs (gift from my parents many moons ago) reset from 18ct to platinum to match. But i’m slowly adding 18ct back into the mix & have a 10th anniversary RHR Tiffany ring & plus my 21st Birthday bracelet added in lately.

    My first wedding ring 30 years ago was yellow gold. Then I switched to white about 10 years ago, then back to yellow. It suits me best. BTW, I am thankful my husband lets me pick out my own jewelry. He learned early how particular I am and is happy to let me do the shopping. Kudos to the ladies who don’t care about picking out their own jewels. But I just can’t.

    I’m excited to see my wedding ring. Hoping the two rings look great together. But heck, I’d be happy to wear my new ring as is, forever. So pretty. Thanks for chatting about the bling with me. Fun!!

    Absolutely beautiful @MK Malone! Congratulations on your 30th anniversary and sunning new ring!

    I am so happy that you posted about your new diamond to show that a well cut 60/60 stone can be so fiery and gorgeous!

    Yes!! You are so correct!! If you look at the last video I posted, it is the final two diamonds I was choosing from, both from B2C. The one on the left was a 3.33 I VS2. On the right is the 3.40 I VS2. Completely different cuts. The 3.33 had a 56 table, 62.3 depth, 36 crown angle, 40.6 pavilion angle. It seemed to be the favorite amongst PS peeps based on cut. It had a 1.7 HCA score. You can see in the video that the 3.40 on the right was the clear winner. Although both were beautiful. I needed to see them side by side to make the best decision. So glad I did.

    I am happy for you that you were able to order multiple stones and compare them in person. It is so true that sometimes what your eyes can tell cannot be evaluated or estimated with online tools and based on other people’s preferences.

    Some time ago, I also had a gorgeous 60/60 stone with very similar cut proportions and it was a beauty.

    Enjoy your stunning new ring and cheers to the next 30!

    Oh yes yes yes @MK Malone that's exactly what I meant! Wow! I love those chunky edgy prongs! How are you finding the setting height? Is the setting from B2C too?

    This ring must make your heart go pitter patter every time you see it!!! Thank you so much for sharing!

    You are so sweet!! Thank you for being a fan of my pretty ring.

    This setting is from a local jeweler. I like the height but.... they are finishing up the wedding band and I am concerned that the lower prongs on the e ring are going to be in the way, keeping the two rings from sitting flush against each other. I also thought the cathedral would be higher/go up further. I am waiting to see the two rings together before I get too concerned.

    To be continued....
