Hello all, I''ve been a looooong time lurker on this site and am finally posting my E-ring that I received just before Christmas. We finally settled on Whiteflash to make a custom ring after 2 fiascos at other jewelers. Kinda of a long story, but I''ll make it quick. After window shopping, the first place we looked at was a well respected jeweler in Philadelphia. Before we knew it, we had picked out a stone and a setting! (a Tacori solitaire) I ended up with a 1.01 ct M VS2, but it faces up much much whiter and has a crazy amount of fire. I can only see a faint hint of color when I view it from the side and find that the little bit of color doesn''t bother me. Trevor (my fiance) put a deposit on the stone and ordered the setting. They said they could size the display model, but he said no way (he wanted it straight from Tacori). So he calls a few weeks later to see if it was done and guess what. They screwed up and sized the store model. Ugg. Needless to say we were both really really mad. By that point, I had found dozens of other rings I liked and was having second thoughts about the Tacori, so we told them forget the setting, but we''ll keep the stone. Next we started working with an online jeweler for a custom ring. They were great until whoever was working with us forgot we existed. No idea what happened there, but whatever. So it was on to Whiteflash! (3rd time is a charm, right?) We worked with Bob and he always got back to us within a day, got me exactly what I wanted, and I couldn''t be happier!
The ring is kinda of based on a Scott Kay design except it has side sapphires instead of diamonds and engraving on the shank.

ok here are the specs from AGA


1.01 ct M VS2
Depth 63.9
Table 56.1
crown 37 degrees
pavillion 40.9 degrees
polish excellent
symmetry good
intense blue fluorescence

Since I knew what the ring was going to look like, Trevor wanted the proposal to be a suprise. And he threw in an extra surprise that I didn''t know about. A matching necklace! He had Whiteflash''s Tandem necklace made with side sapphires instead of diamonds.

Wow!! I just love sapphires and those two pieces are amazing. I''m surprised the M colour is as white it is, it''s absolutely beautiful!

Do you mind giving a few more details on the necklace? I''d love the specs on it.

Love them. I have a weakness for sapphires and diamonds. How sweet of him to surprise you with the necklace. Will the wedding ring have more yummy sapphires too?

Awesome! Wonderful choices and so beautiful. Love those sapphires, and the ring and matching necklace are way cool.

I''d love to get a necklace like that. I will be curious as to how you find it wears for you. Any shifting or flipping?

Congratulations on your engagement.
