I want to share with you my stunning ring! I lurked and lurked on here learning about the type of OEC that I wanted... Fat chunky arrows. I love lots of colorful light return. I found her about 10 months ago at Jewels by Grace. Unfortunately she was outside of the budget my fiancé and I agreed upon. I spent 6 months browsing online and nothing compared. I wasn't actively using JBG or LAD to source stones - I was hopeful that my partner would come around hehehe. He did and I am so appreciative.

So the stone is..... a 2.32 I VVS2 from JBG - I've attached a JBG photo.

She is in the "Julia" solitaire. This setting is so beautiful. The prongs are so delicate. The detail in the basket paired with the prongs makes it look like a crown lol

I've only got some crappy cell phone shots but I will share - I have never posted photos before so I hope this works :confused: :confused:

Gorgeous! What a beauty. Diamond from Grace .
But if you got the ring from Erica, it is from Love Affair Diamonds, isn't it?
Would make sense as the Julia is her design.

Wow in my excitement I really wasn't clear!

Love Affair Diamonds set the stone for me in a Julia solitaire. And yes the stone came from Jewels By Grace.

Thanks for mentioning this.
