Until now, all 4 of my CBI diamonds were F in color. Prior to that, my e-ring of 20+ years was a 3.01 F-SI1 pear (still have this ring).

Saw a Q colored CBI that piqued my interest and thought why don't I do something out of the box and buy a warm colored diamond. While I was at it, why not do my first halo too. The resulting custom designed ring was cast by the same shop that casts for Harry Winston, and finished by Wink's bench with superior polish.

The ring has a 18k gold shank and a platinum halo.

First up, Jamie's glamour shots.

After I received the ring today, we looked all over the house trying to find a white wall so that we could accurately photograph my new ring. We settled on plotter paper that was a nice neutral white. These photos taken with Samsung phones

It certainly is different - I have been back twice to look at it again since you posted! I am in awe & envy. I love anything floral looking & yours is captivating. The hint of the diamond is just stunning. It wouldn't look the same with a F colour.

So beautiful!!!:love: I am shocked how yellow your Q looks! Is there any yellow gold around or under that stone at all other than the shank???

Your pictures are so good I thought you might have a light box!

No, just the shank and white plotter paper. And even then the phone can't do an accurate capture because the paper is supposed to be white.

Jamie also took a photo of the bottom that is fully accessible for easy cleaning. The diamond is just suspended from the halo as shown in the 2nd photo from the top of the thread.

Your Q is out of this world!!!!! I love how it looks like a soft bright sunflower is some lights and in others it's soft cream!! You have a sparkling scintillating chameleon!

Your halo with the yellow gold just perfection!
Enjoy that beauty!!!

The stone is nothing short of spectacular!! That color :love:. I'm in awe of what a lovely warm color it is. What a perfectly beautifully unique halo to compliment her and as always I'm a huge fan of the yellow gold shank :roll2:.

You know it is pretty cool that it is a super ideal cut diamond with some warmth to it at a very reasonable price.

If I ever win the lottery, I would ask @Paul-Antwerp to source some fancy yellow intense rough to cut me a FIY CBI to match the bracelet that he and Lieve sourced for me.
