Oh, its so beautiful, BP!! I love it!! No worries about your other thread!!!:)

As far as keeping it clean, I recommend ultrasonic for the deep clean (or Jewel Jet) and for day to day, I like using a q-tip dipped in alcohol or an alcohol pad to clean the diamond. Just swab over the table and you'll be amazed at the difference it makes ( as you know I have an EC too, and am obsessed with keeping it clean). Its really important, especially for EC's (imo)....They don't look good at all when their dirty!!! Mark at ERD gave me this tip- and we all know he knows his diamonds!!!

So happy for you!!! Enjoy this special time!! It's so magical!!! :))

Your ring is absolutely a gorgeous classic. The stones are white, crisp and beautiful. That's a "forever ring" if there ever was one! Congratulations!
