So I actually got engaged July 04, 2015 but never got around to posting a thank you! I posted a few threads exposing how much of a noob I was and I got so many great responses in helping me make a better diamond purchase. I ended up getting a 2.42 J VS2 RB. I was patient as I could be and this one came up and I had to get it. Did I follow everyone's advice to a tee? Of course not but I definitely made a much wiser choice and I thank to all who gave me advice! I mounted it on a Gabriel and co pavé (2.7mm, 0.3ct) from a local jeweler. Had to help some local business. Anyways I'm more nit picky than she is so needless to say she was BLOWN away and constantly flashes it around for no reason when we're together; like a little kid with a new toy :) okay enough blabbing, here's some pics :)

Thank you all so much for the kind words! I need to take some pics with my little macro clip on for my phone, the pics don't do it much justice! I was very happy with how well it faced up for a J. If I remember right I used the HCA tool and it scored very well and I went with all I had knowledge of and needless to say it all worked out :)

She is currently away from me at school again, but I'll take more! I have a little macro attachment for my phone that takes phenomenal pictures. I might be able to pick up the oh so small inclusion, or "freckle" as she likes to call it that makes it uniquely hers she says. I'm a vintage watchnut with Hawkeyes and I still find it hard to spot. Maybe the macro will get it :)

Congratulations! You did a wonderful job on both the setting and the stone. I cannot imagine any girl who wouldn't want to flash it around. :appl:
