My fiancé and I had a wonderful experience working with Wink Jones and Melissa Sharp from HPD, and wanted to give them a recommendation! We purchased a round brilliant Crafted By Infinity diamond approximately a carat in size, set with a pear on each side, and with a uniquely designed band. They made the process super easy - first as Wink explained diamond details to my fiancé and sent multiple videos of stones, and then as Melissa carefully read everything we were considering for the band and created a beautiful setting just as we had imagined.

Now, the center stone really lights up on fire and sparkles like nothing else! After my fiancé proposed, as we drove away I noticed it sparkling on the roof of the car, and teasingly flashed it in his eyes - he said it was so bright it wasn't funny to do while driving! I notice it throwing many little sparkling rainbow reflections in many situations - on the pages of books I read, in mirrors, and underwater. There is so much more fire in the Crafted by Infinity stone than there was in any others we saw in stores, so we are truly, truly fans of this line and would not purchase a center stone anywhere else. (Their 100% trade-in or buy-back policy is a great incentive as well.)

We have received many gasps of "Beautiful!" from others, as well as "It's SO sparkly!" - even months after the first impression! Many thanks once again, Wink!

Thank you for all the compliments!! :)
I'll try to take a picture myself for the CBI forum next week. Any excuse to show off my rings.....

In the meantime, here are a couple pictures of the profile view.. we spent a lot of time designing the profiles for both the engagement and wedding bands. I'm just sorry the pictures don't quite do them justice - I think they're much prettier in person.

What a unique setting for such a gorgeous diamond.

Welcome to the CBI family.

Your diamond will perform in many different lighting environments (even in darkened theaters on cruise ships as I discovered).
