So, I recently decided to upgrade my first diamond -- a Whiteflash ACA solitaire -- into a five-stone trellis ring. I've always had great experience with Whiteflash on the customer service end -- they're quick, responsive, thorough, professional, etc. I can't say enough great things about them as a vendor. I wasn't in a rush on this project, but they still turned everything around so quickly for me and were a pleasure to work with!

So, details on the stones: Becca helped me upgrade my prior 0.822 ct I color ACA to a 0.823 ct G color ACA. (I love warm old cuts, but I couldn't help but go for the icier colors for the MRBs.) The two adjacent to the center stone are each 0.4 ct H ACAs, and the two on the end are 0.25 ct each. I wear a size 4.25 on my right hand, and they made this ring for me in unplated white gold, which I just absolutely love now thanks to the PSers.

I'd been intending to wear this instead of my wedding bands and solitaire on some days, but I'm really enjoying how it looks as a RHR! I just received the package from Whiteflash this morning, so I'm still getting used to how the ring looks on my hand. It looks kind of big to me right now, but I assume DSS will set in soon (and that it even applies to five-stones!). :lol:

Anyway, really glad that this arrived today, since I've been having a stressful week at work. It really brightened up my Thursday morning!

First, one of the official WF photos:



And now, some shots with the iPhone and loupe in my office:

Wow! Now that's an upgrade! After having the pleasure of getting to visit Whiteflash I can tell you that they are some of the
nicest most considerate people you could ever want to meet. Whether you are getting engaged and this is your first
adventure into the diamond world or whether you are well versed in diamonds they want you to be pleased with their pieces
and want the experience to be enjoyable. Glad it was for you!

Your new ring is just gorgeous!

Your 5 stone ACA ring is fabulous. I looks great on your hand and of course I know those ACA are dynamic sparklers. Enjoy. :appl:

Thank you, tyty333! My parents live in Houston, so I have visited their store when I've been in town, and they really are some of the nicest people ever. They're also very professional and responsive! As someone who is also in the service industry, I know how difficult it can be to deal with customers, so I really appreciate how they truly go above and beyond for us.

It looks very beautiful - not too big at all! Enjoy!
I should know better than to ask on PS if diamonds are too big. ;))

Thank you! I saw someone describe a trellis as "sexy" on some other threads . . . I could not agree more! I find this ring to be soooo sexy! :naughty:

So, I really thought my week couldn't get any worse, but then it turned out this weekend that I also have the flu! :knockout: Feeling a lot better now after some tamiflu, but I do feel like I would've been in much worse shape if I hadn't had my five-stone to admire all weekend. :lol:

Beautiful!

It has very similar specs as mine (and unplated white gold) so of course I love it.

Niel, yours was the inspiration for mine, size wise for the stones. I love the proportions on yours! :love:
