First, let me tell you how great this forum is!

So i'm thinking of buying the following stone for my GF engagement ring:

with the following platinum setting:

http://www.whiteflash.com/engagemen...shared-prong-diamond-engagement-ring-1009.htm

I traded color for carat because my GF has no knowledge of diamonds other than "it's a diamond" so I thought that bigger (relatively speaking) is better. I kept an "ideal" cut as per the forum general consensus.

Here's a few questions;

  1. Will the primary diamond look "off" compared to the secondary diamonds on a platinum setting?
  2. I couldn't tell any major flaw with the idealscope + aset image, can any of you give me some feedback about them?
  3. Any other thoughts?

Much appreciated!

Thanks for the quick reply!

How do you reserve? I don't see that option anywhere...

I think you have to call them or use online chat? I'm sure if you call them in the morning they could help you out!
