    I agree with you @Austina I emailed him a photo of an oval bangle I have with a hinge and safety lock. He didn’t respond yet...I do have this one so I think the dbty one would be better. What do you think?

    Wow @Mamabean, such a pretty diamond. I would be interested to see it against a white surface. It looks nicely warm, almost with something pinkish in it. Looks really wonderful!

    I'm no help with setting, I would still make a ring out of something like that, it looks like it would be captivating.

    It’s a toughie @Mamabean because if you want a DBTY I don’t want to dissuade you. I love the look of DBTY but again, not sure if it would end up annoying me by flipping around and the diamond not being ‘up’ on my wrist. I can only speak to what I’d like, and that would be an oval hinged bangle where the diamond would always be right way up IYKWIM.

    BTW I :love: your diamond, when I saw an M OEC at Old World Diamonds, it faced up really white, but I’m really smitten with less than bright white diamonds now I have Bella.

    Thank you @Austina..I have a hinged bangle so it would be more of the same..I have a very tiny diamond in a DBTY bracelet that I don’t take off..It just fits and it does flip but because it’s so teeny I don’t notice. I don’t know what to do with it but I’m keeping “Baby”.
    I LOVE your Bella! :love:

    I have one that I wear and never take off. The diamond is very tiny..It has a memory attached to it..I would wear it with the new one if I get it. I really don’t know what else to do with it. I just visualized it being a little bigger. Maybe I should do a ring? It would be like a wedding band then. :think: I will make David truly crazy..I flip back and forth..

    Ok! I just emailed David and I’m back to a bezel ring. It will probably be like a band which is fine...and I’ll stack it.. I can see her more often that way! She gets shipped off on Monday :appl:

    Perfect! I think that's lovely, she'll be so lovely!

    What metal will you use? Or will you two tone her?

    Thank you! I’m going to do it in white gold with palladium so it never has to be rhodium dipped. She’s not yellow..more silvery so the white gold should be pretty. I’m having a two tone band made by David though..I’m excited about that too!

    She is so cute @Mamabean! I like that hard bangle but also like the idea of a stacking ring.

    I've been thinking larger M color too. I know I'll see lots more color in it because its larger though. I was also thinking yellow gold which may also
    bring out more of the color. So hard to figure things out when you dont have the stone in hand. It makes all the difference. So glad you are keeping
    her!

    Looking forward to seeing her in her future home!

    Thank you @tyty333 This has been an eye opening experience. I don’t like a diamond to have a yellow undertone..I like a light brown undertone. Mine has that and a silvery look to it but not yellow. I’ve been through a lot of them and most have yellow when they put them on the video. It’s what you like..I LOVE this color.. but like you don’t know what it would look like at in a larger carat. I think the color would really show more..That could be good or bad..If it had a yellow undertone I would go with yellow gold but since mine has a silvery light brown undertone I’m happy to get my white gold with palladium.

    Thank you for that! I'm so glad that you're pleased. I like the idea of a stacking ring, but I also like the idea of a bangle. :P2 I think a 40 pointer is a great size because it's not invisible, and it's affordable. This specific size is what I was aiming for as the side stones in my necklace project, so I'm definitely a fan. Maybe in the future you could do stacking rings with same sized diamonds of other colors to wear together? Or maybe find sisters to this stone and have it made in different gold colors, to wear as a set? The possibilities are endless! I look forward to seeing what you end up with.

    That’s my plan! I like the idea of sister diamonds to stack with her!
