In the land of super sized diamonds Pricescope style, I turned the opposite way, buying a small GIA graded natural Fancy Green Blue diamond!!! At only 4.01mm x 4.04mm- it is just a tiny little blue. But I've been looking for this type of color for a couple of years. I've bought and sent back a couple because they just weren't saturated enough. I've looked at bluish greens and greenish blues and wasn't really particular which one it was. I knew I didn't want to sell a house for a large one :$$): , so when I saw this one pop up on Leibish I pounced on it. :dance:

It arrived a few days before Christmas and it's such a pretty Caribbean blue!!!! Not quite sure how I'll set it yet, although I know I'll put a pink diamond halo around it to maximize the color. So here are a few photos I snapped today- not the best, but should give you an idea of color. I've placed some G color diamonds around it in one of the photos and some fancy intense pinks in another for reference.

Mmmmm!
Beautiful color.

It brings me to the green-blue of a tropical white-sand beach. :cheeky: :love:

Re: I had a Blue Christmas...as in a Fancy green blue diamo

thank you tyty333 and ac117 - I also think the pink diamonds make the color pop!!

thank you, Kenny- that tropical peaceful color is exactly what I wanted!! Although it's not nearly in the vivid color range of your beauties, the pastel tones speak to me and they're a bit easier on the wallet, too! =)

heididdi- you'll find FCDs are addictive. Just like potato chips you can't stop at one!! :lol:

LLJsmom-thank you. Dreamy is a great adjective for it-like a Caribbean Dream

thanks whitewave- I purchased it from Leibish. Great company-I've purchased several FCDs from them.

Love the color! :love: It reminds me of Kroshka's green diamond that was set with light pinks around it! That will be gorgeous!!

Re: I had a Blue Christmas...as in a Fancy green blue diamo

thanks so much MissGotRocks and poshmommy!

DS- thank you! I believe the size is very similar to Kroshka's Green Envy. It shows that a small diamond can still make a nice sized and creative ring in the hands of a talented designer. I have searched the internet for images of blue green and green blue diamonds and most rings have accented the color with pink diamonds. It just really enhances them.

heididdi- I am terrible at posting links, but I think in your other thread you said you managed to find the threads on my orchid ring, right?

Yes, a beautiful piece can definitely be made with a small colored diamond. Your pink diamond rings are absolutely fabulous!!! I was able to see Kroshka's in person in Houston last February! I love seeing them, but I need to restrain myself from catching that bug ( :$$): )!!!!

haha- yes, so hard to stop once you start on FCDs!! There are so many PS rings I'd love to see in person. Might be time for another trip to Vegas :Up_to_something: As long as the PS get together is going to happen this year
