Looks like you're off to a good start.

Thanks Storm. I do like the stone and it''s a consideration and very likely pick, but I do think I am going to have #3 called in still. For such a large purchase I don''t mind a few extra dollars to make sure there isn''t another stone I may like a bit better. So, hopefully I''ll have some more pics to post Tue or Wed next week and who knows maybe a diamond purchased by the end of the week.Man that thought is exciting but gives me butterflies just thinking about it.
too small to see and will blend in anyway.Date: 4/3/2007 6:08:23 PM
You know better than I do Storm, but is there anything wrong with the 2 dark marks on the inner points of the 2 windmills on the left side? or is this nothing?
As far as other pics, I''ll get a magnified image of #3 on Mon. or Tue next week, but because so many jewelers are off because of holy week I am not at risk of having someone else request the diamonds before then.
I love those setting ideas, your ring is going to be gorgeous!!!Date: 4/10/2007 7:28:23 PM
Well, as you may read on another topic, my appraisal session went well. The appraiser, Therese Kienstra, found the asscher to be stunning, loved the facets and said I had found a great diamond. I should also mention that she was surprised and happy with my knowledge of the stone and having requested and viewed an of my diamond, this praise goes out to this entire forum. Thanks Pricescope.So, I''m keeping the 1.29ct and am now in talks with about a semi-custom ring. I found a ring on another site, but wanted a few minor changes, which is willing to do at a reasonable cost.
I''m going to have a ring similar to the Bella: http://www.knoxjewelers.biz/index.htm?crn=203&rn=303&action=show_detail
with the filigree brought down a bit further (to around a 9:00 and 3:00 point rather than the 10 and 2 range the Bella has).
I''m also going to have them do the miligraining seen on this ring http://www.knoxjewelers.biz/index.htm?crn=213&rn=969&action=show_detail
rather than what is seen on the Bella.
As for the prongs, I was planning to keep the rounded prongs that you can see on the Bella. I know many on here prefer the claw prongs on an asscher, but I personally don''t like the talon like look they have and prefer something more subtle.
I''d love to have peoples opinions as this process continues for me and want to thank everyone for their help so far.
