    I agree! I called and they said it was supposed to be shipped out today. I’m going to call again when I get home. We were going to Maryland this weekend so I had them change it to FedEx. They haven’t shipped it yet though..Heaven knows where it’s coming from!

    Does anyone know if they send a loose diamond with a ring holder? I see them around but don’t know where they got them.

    I've never received a stone with a holder. Darn it, I'm about to get on a flight and am going to miss the reveal. :(2

    HA HA! Yes, I'm on the way to the airport but won't be on board for 2.5 hrs, so I'll be checking in! I hope you're blown away! I was originally considering L/M/N for my necklace project.

    I hope it’s not a letdown because I’ll know as soon as I see it if it’s what I like..The anticipation is nerve wracking!

    Yah!!! Almost here!

    I've only received a loose stone from BG and it didnt come with any kind of holder.

    I bought some items off ebay...the "ring" gem holders are pretty cheap as in cheaply made.

    Omg! I’m in the car outside FedEx! It’s beautiful but I can’t take good photos because it’s encased in a plastic case and it’s so tiny! I don’t see any color other than beautiful white with shooting rainbows! I think it will have to go in a DBTY Bracelet as it’s just too small for a ring. This has changed my mind about color. There’s no dark color that I can see! I have errands but they are blurry through the hard plastic case. I’ll take more out of the car when I get home. It looks gorgeous outside but not sure what it will look like inside the house..I’m keeping it and already emailed David I want a DBTY bracelet.

    Thank you everyone! I’m home..so snapped a few more. I kept dropping the poor baby on my marble counter..then looping it like a nervous mother! I’m in love with my baby! The only time I saw color was when I louped it..otherwise it’s white and shoots colorful rainbows and has lots of fire..I wonder if it looks white because it’s a baby..It makes me want to see if I can get a honker in an M..I did notice when I looked at James Allen that lots of M’s have prominent yellow. Mine and one other had a silvery mercury glass look which I love. I will be on the hunt but they’re still expensive in the bigger size so maybe I would go down to vs2 or eye clean si1. It’s not happening now..I have too many projects going on now! David just emailed me and said he could make a bangle for it with a little chain..but I can’t figure out how that would go over hand and there’s no catch... The chain stays attached..I don’t want an open end either..What do you think? I think I have too many pictures so will post the pic of the bangle below..

    It photographs with color but in person it’s white..so funny..
    Anyway..here the pic of the bangle that David can make but the chain stays attached. He could make an open one but those aren’t comfortable for me.

    If I’m being totally honest @Mamabean I like the concept, just not in love with the chain. Are you opposed to a hinged oval shaped bangle? I’d worry that it would slide around otherwise and be annoying.
