Absolutely splendid. Am I seeing little tiny diamonds set into the shank as part of the engraving pattern? This is an amazing, gorgeous ring.

Thank you - that means a lot as you have a great eye! And yes - you’re seeing tiny little old euros in the shank with an engraved starburst pattern!

Finally, what we are all really here for!!! I also need to emphasize for scale - I have HUGE hands and long fingers. Bigger than most men! I can hold a basketball upside down! So hope that helps for scale

  • 3.5 carats, si1, S-T
  • Loose: 9.16 x 8.85 x 6.12mm

I love it on you! And I am a yellow gold girl so I like that you played up the color with it. My 1ct transitional is a similar color although it hasn’t been officially graded but I also love the lemony, buttery, vanilla tones that it has in various lighting. Makes it interesting. Enjoy!

Wow, girl, you have the loveliest long fingers, and what a beautiful smile! You know I'm a lover of color, so I'm utterly delighted by your upgrade!! I realize this is a sacrilege to say around these parts, but........ sometimes white diamonds bore me. There, I said it! Yours is so perfectly candlelit though!!

That combined with the cut, size, and mounting - it's just brilliant. Big congrats and enjoy!

Such nice compliments! Thank you :kiss2:

And no offense taken re. white diamonds…I still appreciate them, but I’m leaning into the fact that in my heart of hearts, im another color lover…this diamond is much more of a feast for the eyes than I ever thought possible! I wish I could capture the spectrum of gorgeous pastels she throws off better

It’s funny, I like color too..and took me a while to figure out that paler colors are my favorite! (Also might be sacrilege haha in the colored stone world)

Thank you …That’s the perfect description…such a special, yummy color range. Glad I’m not the only one who appreciates it!!!

Exactly... I think we can all appreciate the dazzle of colorless diamonds, but I'm just a sucker for a unique beauty with personality. You definitely achieved that here! So have you noticed a lot more fire in this warmer diamond than your E? I ask because my yellow diamonds seem to throw much more dispersion than any of my white stones. Is that a common trait diamond collectors have noticed with these candlelit stones? (Actually, I like the way @CaseyLouLou put it... french vanilla... yum!)

I’ve noticed a LOT more fire and it’s generally much more colorful and full of life! It’s maybe an unfair comparison due to sheer size difference, but I imagine color definitely plays a factor.

One day I’d love to own something in the M-N-O-P range and would love to compare…now I just want all of the colors at the low end! :lol:

Some more fun color flashes! Sorry the breeze is aggressively loud lol and she’s not perfectly clean as I am on vacation (bringing an ultrasonic for a week in the country seemed excessive but I was tempted :lol:)
