Hey all,

New spot for me here but very excited to be joining the lab diamond club!

Inspired by all the amazing lab diamonds here, I decided to browse Distinctive’s inventory and happened upon a pink tinted 1.31 K color SI1. I emailed Jonathan to confirm it does have a pink tint, that it wasn’t just wishful thinking, and he confirmed it does indeed!

Jonathan got the stone today and he is going to vet it tomorrow and send video. Can’t wait! I am hoping it is eye-clean, there is a little spot in the center I’m worried about. Well, just had to share because I’m so excited, here is a pic and the stats.

It's just gorgeous!
I know you have a discerning eye, and very good taste. So I have no doubt that this will make a stunning ring!! I can't wait!

You are too kind, I have no idea what I’m doing! I trust Jonathan though to be honest and that is a huge load off my mind. Plus it was a very good price and has a return policy so definitely worth a look.

Oh, how exciting! I love these pink-tinted lab diamonds. If it works out, I can't wait to see how you set it!

Me too! I’ve been wanting a pink diamond but some pink lab diamonds are too saturated for me. For now it will be set into this setting and I may send the spinel to get a lab report. It’s just a simple Stuller setting but it’s the only one I have that will fit the new stone.

Thanks! I was rather surprised to find this stone because I’ve searched several times before and nothing really caught my eye. I am hoping I can get the prongs reworked for the new stone, they are a bit prominent, my old jeweler wasn’t great with prongs.

YadaYadaYada, like a brown-tinted K wasn't gorgeous enough? I've never heard of a pinkish K. To me, this is the perfect pink, we agree on saturation. I just love this color! Jonathan does amazing things. Can't wait to see the diamond in your ring!

Thanks @petrock<3!

@Ibrakeforpossums, yes I have always admired those brown pinks, so pretty. I just wanted a slight pink and hopefully this is it right here. The wait is killer but tomorrow isn’t that far off. Jonathan has been very lovely to do business with too, really a great guy.

Everyone says that about him. I learned so much from his videos from GOG, And I learned to love his ways, his delivery. Please tell us all about your experience.

Wow! That diamond is so gorgeous! A pink tinted diamond is amazing! I don’t see the spot you are taking about at that magnification. It has to be eye clean..I hope you love it!!!

@Ibrakeforpossums, I will absolutely share my experience once all is said and done :)

@oncrutchesrightnow, I will for sure, not sure what he will send me today but I will share whatever I get.

@MamaBee, ahhhh I am so excited about this! Hopefully the spot I’m worried about is just apparent with magnification. I’ve been on the hunt for a pink something for a while :)

What a nice stone! Inspired, I went through and found a super nice asscher with the same pink effect that I'm now thinking about for myself...

In the pickup line now for my younger one, I swear I spend more time in the car than anywhere else some days lol!

Sorry for the blurriness, these are screenshots from the video.

@YadaYadaYada I love the color. I love that it doesn’t have a yellow undertone. The light pink tint is amazing. I hope you love it when you get it!

@MamaBee, thank you, I really appreciate your opinion, you have beautiful diamonds and jewelry. I did ask Jon if he could use an existing Stuller setting because I really want well done claw prongs and he said he can! It’s all coming together!

I think your opinion will be the best one. You have the eye....When do you think you’ll have it?

I’m not sure, I have to send him the setting and make sure that will work otherwise it will probably be loose for a while. However long that takes but he isn’t far from me so that’s a plus.

Exciting! I daydream of having a pinkish diamond. So much can do to bring out the color too - rose gold!
