So last year I got an upgrade to a 1.43ct G SI1 AVC ( http://www.goodoldgold.com/diamond/6901/ ). It is a beautiful stone, and it has been living in a temporary setting for a year (tapered Stuller Solstice). Here is the original thread with pics of it in it's old setting https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-gog-avc-upgrade-lots-of-pics.138460/. Although I liked the temp setting, it was just that - temporary. I didn't think it set the stone off as nicely as it could be; the shank was thicker than I'd have liked, and it blended into the sides of the stone, making the stone look more elongated than it really is. Anyway - we were very fortunate this year to be able to move the stone to it's beautiful new permanent home - a modified Julia setting from Jewels by Erica Grace!

I highly recommend JbEG - I worked with Erica, and had a great experience. She is a true professional, and oh so nice! I just can't thank her enough for making this idea into a beautiful reality. I'm very happy with the workmanship on the ring, and I can't even describe how delicate it is in real life. And I think it makes the stone look bigger - bonus! The shank is so thin it makes the stone look like it is floating on my hand. :) Erica took pictures and a video of it before she shipped it to me, and as I'm not sure if I can link to that, you can find it on their website under settings > plain and pave solitaires > The "Julia" solitaire featuring an AVC cushion. She took some great pics, and I love the video - I was so excited to see the final product before it even got to me!

Anyway - I took lots of pics (more to show off the setting than the stone, as we all know what AVC's look like)... but I snuck a few in there. :) I'll split the pics into groups of 4 for easier uploading and viewing. Enjoy!

Ooooh, I love it! It looks like a little crown holding up that gorgeous stone...just fit for a princess! And I definitely think the new setting makes the stone look larger!

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking - it does look like a little crown! And I love that it looks bigger - I can really "see" the stone now instead of seeing the shank in the other setting.

Thank you! And the nail polish is a new one from OPI's new Femme de Cirque collection called Step Right Up. :)

They did! I'm quite impressed, especially after all the talk about CAD vs handmade. I think this looks great!

GORGEOUS! The stone and setting look like they were made for each other.

I love this setting. It was one of my inspiration settings for my ring. *sigh* So beautiful.

Thank you so much to everyone who has said such nice things! I have been totally distracted by it since I got it, and it is just lovely. The pics are so deceiving - they make it look huge and bulky, and in fact it is so delicate and small! I wish I could convey in pics how tiny it is and it just makes the stone "pop". This rock looks better than it ever did in it's old home - just goes to show what the right framing can do for a picture!
