It is finally done!!!

My partner is 40 in a few months and we recently celebrated out 10yr anniversary. So, it calls for a very special gift. It has been an exciting journey for both of us to date. We are so humbled at the experiences that we have had and most thankful of the support that we planned out family. We now have 2 beautiful daughters (5 &2.5). I have started their jewelry box already! Never too young, I say!!!


Any way, I digress...

My DH always wanted an ID bracelet. He is rather special....so, I thought why not a blue diamond. A fellow PSer had one for sale and before you know it- I have it. Thanx justginger!!! :wavey:

It is a 0.11ct Fancy Intense Blue diamond.

Next was to search for an ID bracelet. Now these are not easy to find as they are not as popular as they once were. Therefore finding someone to make one was rather challenging. Lots of research and someone pointed me to Diamonds by Lauren. David showed me a pic of what his bench could do and I was sold. After more research into the final design of the bracelet, I told David - let do this!!!!


The pics arrived and I was in awe. I just couldn't wait to feel and see it. When I received the FedEx package- I could not rip it open fast enough. This bracelet is AMAZING. It is silky smooth to the touch.. It is just lux... Silky smooth is how I still describe this metal bracelet.. I hit jackpot. The feel is just pure luxe....

Then it was off to my local jeweler to have it engraved and the diamond set. I just picked it up and really happy... I can't wait to give this to my DH.

i must thank Susimoo for her guidance and keeping me to task... MWAH!!

Ok now for the pics....

I love it, Greg! Your other half will be thrilled! The engraving is lovely & the detail around the diamond is too, rather than just hammering it in.

It looks silky!! What is the metal?

Hi Alex!
Thanx you for your comments.
The material is 14k White gold. Its weird describing metal as silky smooth, but it truly is....
yes the detailing on the FIB oval just makes it sparkle more!

I bet it has a great weight to it too. When is the special occasion?

I really REALLY love that bracelet. I am sorely tempted to stop into DBL next week, but I'll refrain. I promised my husband that I wouldn't spend on anything that's not absolutely necessary for the time being. It's just so impeccably made though. We don't see that quality of craftsmanship and finish work too often. You did a great job Greg. You really did. I'm a stickler for high quality and you nailed it. You're going to have to tell us what Mark's reaction to it is when he opens it.

Continued blessings on your next ten years!

Thank you gemgirl for the lovely comments.

I had sent him pictures of the bracelet when I picked it up and he said he likes the chain!!! Omg!! Chain?!!!
I guess to be expected because: When I first got the blue diamond In my hand and showed him...(this is also after telling him about what blue diamond means and cost) he said that its nice!!! Shoot me now!! Lol.

With this project I had to make sure that he was in it all the way or it would have been a "wasted" journey. We discussed a lot during the process but most importantly he gave me his honest input on what he liked.

Then he saw it last night (Friday night here is AUS) : he says he loves it. Win/win.

Congratulations--super classy and timeless. It's much elevated over ordinary ID bracelets--I bet none anywhere is studded with a blue diamond!! What a fabulous and loving gift.
