I finally set my J colored 0.6 ct diamond in a wedding ring

So about six months ago I bought a diamond to set in my wedding ring. I had a plain engagmentring ( thats how we nordics do it) and wanted a rock!
I discovered the lack of knowledge Swedes have about diamonds, so after hours of investigation and reading a lot of posts on pricescope, I decided to get a J colored 0.6ct GIA certified diamond.
The proportions aren't ideal, but far far better than anything I would have gotten buying a set ring. It has a 1.1. Score on the HCA, and I think it is sparkly and just stunning!
Table 58
Depth 61.8
Crown 33.5
Pavilion 41
In swedish standards it's big and " a lot",but I absolutely love love love it!
The color has worried me slightly, but now that it is set with G side stones, I can, if I look carefully and in certain angles, notice color difference, but unless you know about it, you don't notice it.
I Can't wear it until January 30th, but I have to admit I cheat at home, sometimes ;-)
Thank you all the people who helped me out when still choosing, and thanks for reading my post :)


Ps. Sorry about poor quality pictures, they're taken with my phone

Beautiful ring! It looks so lovely on your hand.
Enjoy your "giant" diamond :love:.
(I know what you mean about it being "a lot" I live in a smaller town in Canada and most people don't wear more than 1/3ct, and I have a 0.77ct).

looks fabulous will you wear a band with it, or that's not how it's done?

Thank you everyone.
I am very happy with it.
Also I think I found the inclusion now that it is set! its supposed to be a feather and its a VS2. its on the pavilion area. or its a crack, but Im more certain that its the inclusion, thoughts?

I cant believe how hard it is to take pictures that really show how gorgeous and sparkly it is! They all look so flat :confused:

I had an idea about wearing it with my half eternity ring, but I am not sure they go together.... :think:

Congratulations on your new ring! It looks beautiful, big and sparkly on your hand!
What you see in the photo is not an inclusion. It's the girdle reflection ;))

I have relatives in Norway and Spain so I can see where you are coming from in terms of size. But, don't apologize in any way. Rock that ring! It's very pretty. I especially love the mounting profile.

Regarding your band... I think it's a nice option. Or perhaps wear one on each hand? Spread the bling. :D

Oh the girdle you say, phew! I was slightly afraid it was a crack:) is that common even?

So happy somebody gets my scandinavian size issue :lol: I have already had it commented like " oh that's discreat" " why so big, what are you trying to prove" , seriously, people are 1. Either jealous or 2. Don't think anyone should stand out ( very nordic thing)

Still I will wear it and be proud! And probably with the band on the right hand finger :naughty:

Your ring looks fabulous on your hand. I love it standalone as well as with the band.
