Late to the party, just now reading this thread, but wanted to say that your ring is absolutely gorgeous! Love the setting, the size and the lemony color. The pics you took of it next to your robbins egg blue bag make both colors (the ring and the bag) really sing. Congratulations!

This is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I am a huge fan of the lighter yellows. IMG_1207.JPG IMG_1206.JPG This is my lemonade beauty. I searched for a year, trying to make the jeweler understand that I did not want a vivid yellow. Mine is a light greenish yellow, and it was the slight green tint that sold me. I love your stone! It is a real show stopper!

Some oval knowledge to share (okay only learnt about all these after the purchase, doesn't matter :read:)**edited by moderator, no links to affiliate sites please**

- In practice you will find that the terms oval brilliant cut and oval modified brilliant cut are used interchangeably. However, if the certificate states specifically that the diamond is an oval brilliant, you will know for sure that there have been no modifications made to the facet arrangement such as extra facets being added to the pavilion.
There are four standard variations of the oval brilliant cut including two 8-main variations, a 6-main variation, and also a 4-main variation. Both the 6-main and 4-main ovals only has 56-facets.

- Fewer pavilion mains means the diamond is likely to have bigger and bolder flashes of fire due to fewer but larger virtual facets. The opposite is true and you will get more but smaller pin-flashes of fire in an oval with 8 pavilion mains.

- If you’re looking to minimize the effects of a bow tie, you may have been confused if you tried researching this topic in the past because there are conflicting opinions on how to do this. Some experts say that to minimize the bow tie you should aim for a shallower diamond, others say the effect will be less with a steeper stone. In fact, both camps are actually correct, with clarification needed.

You can minimize the bow tie with either a very shallow diamond or a very deep diamond. However, there will be trade-offs on either option. If we take the starting point that an oval has the same depth as an ideal round, then an oval will be shallower nearer to the ends. The reason is because the angles near the belly of the diamond are at its steepest.

If you cut an oval that is shallow enough to not have a visible bow tie at the belly, then the oval will be too shallow at the ends and what you will get is a flat looking stone. 6 and 4-main ovals have less of this problem because there are no pavilion facets at the ends. Lower girdle facets are steeper than pavilion facets so you get less flatness, but at the same time you lose the structured contrast pattern that the pavilion main offers.

The tricky part is that as you go shallower from the ideal depth of a round, you actually go through a range of pavilion angles where the bow tie is worse before it gets better.

Hope it helps all the other OVAL lovers :love::love::love:
Regardless; find a trustworthy vendor who know his stuff, I did and I am HAPPY.
Cheers

Gorgeous! Congrats on it! It looks great with that Jypsiere in the first pic! (And also with the Kelly. Is it Bamboo?)

hello @Big Fat Facets thank you for your super nice comments... You really make my day!! And big thanks to your blessing in advance... Genuinely appreciated :kiss2::kiss2:

What an amazing ring. I would never have known it wasn't fancy yellow. Congrats. You did good!
@derbygal awww you are so sweet... Yeah thank you for telling me I did well... Hahahahaha I am inclined to think so too :D

This is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I am a huge fan of the lighter yellows. IMG_1207.JPG IMG_1206.JPG This is my lemonade beauty.

@MamaBess wow your ring rocks!!! Thank you for sharing with me, it rocks on your finger!! Like you I like slight tint, of course I DEF much prefer something yellower than mine now (I like W-Z all the way to FLY version)... However due to time constraints, I am getting this instead where the alphabet color holds something special to my heart. :saint:

FABULOUS!! The ring is beautiful and just looks stunning on you.
Btw, love your watch too! I've tried this exact Bulgari serpent watch before, and they're super cool and stylish!
@LLJsmom hello!! Yeah I love the Bvlgari Serpenti watch so much... Been wearing it alot. Got the size direct sent to me all sealed (didn't let anyone try on in the boutique) because my wrist is so small that even with S SIZE, is still kind of loose on me. Thus I got my SA to bring in one completely BN Sealed from the factory direct. ;)2

This is absolutely gorgeous!
@lorrissey thank you so much =)2

Gorgeous! Congrats on it! It looks great with that Jypsiere in the first pic! (And also with the Kelly. Is it Bamboo?)
@bunnycat it was actually the SO KELLY 22 Blue Atoll (very pretty tiffany blue color - didn't think I'd like this color until I used it) on the first pic... The Kelly Pochette is a new color Vert Verone.... Super pretty!!! I actually wanted the Vert Vertigo but the Vert Verone pops up and suit me much much better.... :P2

Thank you. Are you still loving your beautiful ring? No regrets, changing from round to oval? How long did you wait before the right diamond came along? Meaning did you pass on other stones he showed you, or was this the first? Sorry for asking so many questions.
https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/please-show-me-your-rings-w-3ct-centers.27384/page-24#post-4586914

Hi @Sunshine812 i think it is better i replied you here (on the above link page 24 post #698 because that is a public thread more for sharing of blings.... If you read my story in which I had my link there as well, which is on this thread Page 1.

Yes I love my ring... I am someone who learn to accept things for what it is, how it goes... Thus I feel that my story in Page 1 of this thread kinds of describe the journey in which how ultimately the Oval diamond came to me. Yes if you read my thread, we have seen way too many stones over the course of 2months. However I think is because I really trusted my jeweller hence I knew I will be in good hands (have been working with him for almost a decade).

However if you are not someone who "go with the flow" and if you are someone who are very sure of what you want and hate changes, then I think it is better to get what you want. You asked about if I regret changing from Round to Oval? I don't. Because 1) like my story stated in Page1, 2) my character are like "something that goes with the flow", 3) I already had a couple of round diamonds. Thus I do not mind varieties... ;)2 Hope it helps...

Wishing you get the one that best suits you :wink2:

Hello @KristyDarling so sweet of you!! Yeah he has proposed 1.5months ago, and am wearing it everyday now. Yeah the small trillion sides helps to give an illusion of a slimmer finger too. Thanks so much :lol::lol:
