Showing off it''s large split and the way the two bands come together, yet stay separate...

Cute little halo... And some double claw prongs...
Also great, the way the inside of the split is all pave. There really is no metal to be seen anywhere!

Before I even saw this stone, Scarlet came on here paging me to tell me that she had seen it while Mark was holding it for us. If I recall correctly she said, "Girl! That thing is on Fire!" LOL SHe wasn't kidding though. I took this pic on the flight back to Florida. The light hitting the ring from the window was incredible. I actually had to hide my hand bc the fire was everywhere. My FI and I were joking that it was like being in a planetarium!

Crooked!! You can''t wear that ring!! The sun shining on it will blind random passers-by! Pilots might mistake it for an airport beacon and land their airplanes in your lawn! If you go out at night ships will mistake your ring for a lighthouse!! The thing is a safety hazard!!

A beautiful, sparkly, stunning safety hazard!!

Getting creative on the plane I decided to hang it from my tennis bracelet... It shows how there is even pave under the halo and around the bottom of the shank...

Just some info...
Mark at ERD sourced this amazing stone. Nothing else we saw anywhere (including Graff, Kaufmann, and a few others) even compared. We knew it was the one right away. Leon did the setting and we spent 3 hours designing it with him.
Each band of the shank is 1.8mm for a total of 3.6mm. I was truly hocked how delicate it turned out. The total pave used was 1.88 cts, making the whole thing a total of 5.92 cts.
Did I leave anything out??

NEL~ You''re hysterical! That may be one of the best replies I have ever read! Literally on the plane I really did hide my hand bc flahes of light were hitting people on the other side of the plane in the eye. Sadly I kinda enjoyed it! LOL


v!v!~ Speachless is good! Thanks!


kbarro~ Anytime you want! Come on down to Palm Beach! Thank you, I will def enjoy it!!

Wowee Crooked, it is stunning!

I''m curious: how close to your finger is the culet? And how high off your finger does it sit? It''s so hard to get pespective from the close ups. I''ll never have a beautiful diamond that size, but I''m trying to picture it on my finger anyways!

I was wondering what happened to you! I thought maybe you passed out when he gave it to you and never regained consciousness.

It is really, truly incredible and different and delightful in every way. The split shank and that magnificent undergallery!?!?! Get out! It''s perfect ~ but I do agree with NewEnglandLady - that stone is going to be a navigational hazard. I seriously hope you don''t intend to drive anywhere with that gorgeous fireball on your hand. It''s going to turn the interior of your car into the ceiling at Studio54 circa 1970.

Congratulations to you both. (I''m off to look at those gorgeous pictures again and read the proposal story!)

Dreamer~ The culet is small and elongated, so no point at the bottom. You can kinda see it in the third pic I posted, but I will get another shot for you... It doesn''t touch my finger at all or really even get close, yet the ring itself is still pretty low...

Snlee~ Thanks so much. Everytime I see your avatar I squint, it is the brightest pic I have seen. Just gorgeous!

Pixley~ The cushion guru!!! Thanks you so so much! I regained consciousness but was waiting to post the pics bc of a lil issue that I will be able to explain soon... The gallery is my favorite. That''s what took 3 hours to design! LOL
Have you taken your eyes off yours yet?? I feel like I could stare at these cushions for hours and never see everything.

Iluvcarats~ I luv carats too!!! LOL Thanks a bunch, it really turned out beyone my wildest dreams!

Dee*Jay~ Thank you!!!
