I can''t believe I get to post my own SMTR thread!! Thank you so much to all the PSers for the great advice, and to Jonathan and Marie at GOG, and most of all to my wonderful fiance. The stone is 1.52 I/VS2 H&A Cut by Tolkowsky, set in a Sholdt Fremont platinum setting. Ring size is 4.5 Using the Sarin and GIA numbers, it''s a 0.7 FIC on the HCA; using Helium numbers, it''s a 0.8 TIC. It glows, and a friend guessed the color as an E.

I hope the pix came out ok -- they definitely don''t do it justice, and I''m just getting the hang of taking ring pix.

Thank you! I was looking at settings with side stones, and then I asked Marie to show me a plain platinum setting, and she immediately picked the perfect one for me. That woman is good!
