    When I first stumbled onto Pricescope, I got bit by the super ideal bug, so when mom was ready for some serious bling, I steered her to BGD. Denise was a dream to work with (and I miss her dearly now that she's not at BGD anymore). The project was completed around February 2011. I'm housesitting with a good camera phone, and figured I'd play catch up with SMTB!

    Nice - BGD still has images of the diamond on its site!

    Thank you Queenie! :wavey: Split shanks are great for my mom because she doesn't like to stack rings, so it gives that multiple rings type of finger coverage!
    Thank you Raikai! Haha - I should look into some kind of finger exercise + diet plan to get my ring finger to go from a 9 to a 6.25 :lol:
    Thank you acano117. I wouldn't be shocked if she leaves it in the will to the grandfurbabies - they are Purrrfect and I'm always talking back, apparently. :naughty:
    Thank you junebug17!
    Thank you bright ice! You guys are all awesome :lol: to continue on with the pinky ring joke :lol:
    It IS quite blingy! She wanted the 2 carat look, but not the 2 carat price, so it was down to this halo or a 3 stone. The split shank and the large halo hit the spot for mom (kinda...). She loved this ring so much and the sparkle of the super ideal that when BG Blues came out not too long after, she got one that was a smidge over 2 carats! ... then a smaller quadex in a higher color (F). Back then they used to send a picture of Brian in the package, so the running joke BGD and I had was that mom loved her diamonds so much that she had this shrine set up for Brian and paid homage to him. :lol: :naughty: Whenever I'd call back, Denise would remind everyone, "remember the mom that pays homage to Brian..." and they never forgot :lol: :lol: :lol:
    I like that! blingTASTIC! :dance:

    Thank you Enerchi! :wavey:
    I found the fitbit bracelet at Target - it was a cheaper brand that had 3 fun colors in a package!

    Thank you derbygal! it really is something in person - it exceeded our expectations when we saw it in person!
    Thank you Mayk! :wavey:
    Hi cchloe - Thank you!
    this is the "I" was telling you about! The appraiser said "J", so it's a lower "I", but it still faces up white and there is no contrast with the melee - it all looks WHITE!
    I'm housesitting right now, which is how I was able to raid her jewelry :lol: . I found 3 BGD boxes, carefully wrapped in the signature orange tissue paper :lol: :lol: :lol: , but two were empty :(sad , which means she took the smaller quadex and BG blue on vacation with her. She won't be back for another 3-4 weeks, I think... (I'm not tracking when she returns - just when dad returns - NEXT week so I'm relieved of housesitting! Priorities :naughty: )

    When she gets back, I will try to create new threads. It's also a bit of a chore digging through my e-mails for the details and the glamour shots :lol: Time flies!
    Thanks carebear! :wavey:
    I promise - when mom gets back, I will hop to it! I didn't expect 3-5 years to fly by like that! I kept thinking to myself - next time I go over to my parents' place, I will get some pics...

    I absolutely LOVE that the bottom of the shank is not thinned out! I personally prefer more metal in my shanks. You don't see that too often. I know I had to ask for one when I.D. makes my new ring. To me, they feel better and they wear much better. It's beautiful!
