    Straight to the Easter Bunny via the Polar Vortex... my latest anniversary upgrade has arrived! Back in late January, a “future” CBI popped up on the website and I jumped on it.

    First, some pics that show off this gorgeous setting. I waffled back and forth on how to set the CBI, and I’m so happy I went this route. I will be including a ton of shots of the diamond over the week as I get some sunshine and become acquainted with my new BFF. :lol:

    You will see a few different stacking options!

    SWOOOON!

    These papers make me super happy. :kiss2:

    @RayRay The ring is size 7.5– I could have gone 7.0 or so, but I like to stack. :)

    Thank you! I know some would never choose an SI2... I just think it’s incredible to own a piece of perfection from an “imperfect” rough. :)

    @KristinTech - what is your final size goal? I only ask because this one looks SO pretty on your hand! And I LOVE it with your Birks band!

    Great upgrade!

    More pictures to come soon— I introduced my new BFF to my favorite perch for diamond gazing—my family room couch with big picture window and wide wood slat blinds at my back. I took a ton of fire shots and at one point the CBI literally seemed to come alive with white.:-o It seriously appeared to be sizzling white hot!
