Hi All!

This forum helped me a lot when I was having severe second thoughts on my stone purchase.
As I said before, it wasn’t a steal bc we purchased at B&M store and I know with similar stats I found cheaper online.

But in the end I’m happy with the ring.

This is not our first marriage and I had a beautiful cushion the first time around. I originally wanted an emerald this time because I adore them, but our budget didn’t allow for a larger emerald.

This stone scared the bejesus out of me bc in the past I had a VSF stone that I hated and was nervous of the same outcome. It was milky and dull. Plus I never had a stone lower than J before. (I’ve had H, I and J). I didn’t want the idea of getting engaged overshadow the process of finding a beautiful stone. I also didn’t want it to be a haste decision.

Anyway in front of our children and parents I said yes to an amazing human being!

1.02
K
SF
SI1
Ex/Ex/Ex

Ring size 5.75

This stone is truly a chameleon! And that’s what I love about it! Sometimes it looks pale blue, other times cooler than its K color and the list goes on and on. Truly a beauty. I never would have considered K let alone SF until I saw this stone shine!

Depending on her mood the stone shows off her personality!

Beautiful! I LOVE warmer stones, J is my favorite, and I personally would never even consider a D-E-F!

Cool!

I'm so glad you're pleased with it :)

Stones that are a bit of a chameleon are great for character and keeping one's interest over time!

Thank you all so much! I had to share one more. I’ll also share some photos with a UV light soon. It’s so neat! Florescence is not for everyone, I suppose, but don’t overlook a ring that has it. See it in person and witness it’s magic in all kinds of lighting. You could easily fall in love like I have. 9D00637E-9BE6-4C90-AD56-822986BDBD91.jpeg

Love, love the last shot in your first post where you caught the blue hue. That is so lovely! Congrats!
Thank you! It’s so true what they say, it’s hard to take good pictures of diamonds. I also love the lighting at work when I see pinks, blues and yellows. Omg!
