I haven't spent much time in LIW, most of my posts are in either RT (because I've been put in charge of my e-ring), or Hangout (to get my mind OFF of being in charge of my e-ring for a while..)

But now that one step is out of the way I was so excited I had to share.

I ordered my diamond yesterday!! EEEEK! I'm quite nervous, because it's a K, but I have been assured that it faces up very white for it's color, and the vendor also said that while it's GIA graded an SI1, he feels it's more of a VS2.

0.85 K SI1 Asscher. After this, it's just a matter of sending my diamond to JA to be set. And then it will ship to my SO unbeknownst to me, and then it's a waiting game for the proposal.

It's finally getting real. I'm a little scared

Hehe, I posted a poll up in RT a couple of days ago to decide my setting.. I should have posted it here also, just to get more opinions, but I didn't think of that.

It will be set in THIS setting. I ordered the stone first to make sure the color is okay with me before I ship it off to be set.


I'm going to be so excited when the stone arrives that I'm going to want to do a photoshoot of it, but I'm not sure what forum it's appropriate to post "only the stone" photos!

PS ilovesparkles, your avatar makes me smile every time I see it!
