Hi, Everyone. My Whiteflash stone (https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/photoshoot-and-vendor-experiences-and.58496/) is finally in its new home, a platinum micropave split shank by Mark Patterson. I couldn''t be happier with the results; the crafstmanship is lovely to my eye, and the ring is beautiful. At first the prongs seemed a bit big (I know most here like their dainty prongs) but they''re not bulky or clumsy (and look larger than reality in pics) and I like them as a design element. I don''t know anything about the melee beyond that they''re full cut F/G-VS, but the pave sparkles like crazy. As does the center, of course; the sparkle and flashes in direct sunlight are literally blinding! I''ve been carrying the ring around with me and enjoying looking at it in all kinds of light (I may have driven home from the jewelry store with it on my finger, but I''m not admitting anything). Proposal will be in a couple of weeks, feels like ages from now. I don''t have any professional pics, but took some of my own during the sun''s brief appearance this weekend. Thought I''d share them here to help me resist the urge to show the ring to everyone IRL...
