Woohoo!

Stats are: 1.01ct, I colour, SI2, GIA cert, strong blue fluor. I am absolutely stunned at how white the pear looks. The only time is seems to show a warmer tone is in very dim lighting conditions (i.e. indoors on a dull day with no lights) and even then it's hardly detectable. Whoops forgot to say the ring is platinum and the accent diamonds are F-G and VS.

Please excuse (in advance) the excessive number of photos I'm just about to post! Unfortunately it's not sunny enough today - well I am in the UK after all! - to post pictures of the fluor but I'll save that until summer!

Standing by the window on a dull overcast day:

Outside in the 2 minutes of limited sunshine (not strong sun though)

Inside under electric light but shaded - not sure if the blue in the diamond is a result of the fluor or not?

Loving Diamonds - If I had a pear, that''s exactly how I''d want it set!! What a beautiful, gorgeous, sparkly ring - congratulations. And your photography skills are lacking only one thing - you need to take more! Do you have any profile shots?

This is my favorite pic so far. Your pear has so much life and personality...and the fluorescence makes it even more unique.

Lorelei, Catmom, Tuckins1, Alexiszoe, Pixley, MissGotRocks, platinumrock, - Thank you all. What lovely and generous words. For those who liked the fluor photos, more coming up! .........

ckrickett - the setting was made by a jeweller in the UK called diamondgeezer.com Their website is limited but they do CADs and bespoke designs. This is one that I drew, they interpreted via CAD but then we also went down the bespoke road as well!!!

Luv2sparkle, Cellantani - I thought I would bore everybody with more photos but since you''ve asked, here you go ..... :)

Here''s one of the bottom - you can''t see the legs holding the diamond when the ring is on and if I had to change one thing, it would be to make them slightly more raised so you could see them in the profile but I''m not going to change it now!

Ok, this really is the last one!

If I happened to go to a nightclub with blacklight, I guess this is what I''d see! Fluor on the finger ...........
