Unfortunately my camera isn''t working right now so I can''t post pictures, but I upgraded my pendant diamond from a 0.435 carat to a 0.735 carat diamond. The difference is amazing! I also went from a WF Expert Selection to an ACA, and I can really tell the difference in the sparkle between the two stones. Here''s the link to the stone:

I never thought I would buy an I colored diamond, but as color sensitive as I am, this stone doesn''t look the least bit yellow to me. It''s also completely eyeclean, and honestly I have trouble seeing the inclusions with the loupe.

Thank you Lorelei, Ellen, and UCLABelle. I am very happy with this diamond, and I probably won''t be upgrading again for a long time!

That is beautiful! Congrats!

I know what you mean about a big difference. I just traded up my .56 J for a .75 J in my solitaire pendant, and it''s VERY noticeable! LOL

Was your other stone a WF stone that you traded in? Just curious. I''m starting to think about a pendant. It''s going to require alot of looking and thinking.

gotta love those ACA''s

Coda, you must not have any problems with your diamond dropping downward
in your Martini setting - ? I just had my stone set in a Martini and it drops forward a bit,
so I''ll be resetting it.

Get us pictures when you can!

Thank you Rock Candy, Sharon, Monarch, Aljdewey, Kcoursoulle.

Stone Hunter-it is a WF stone that I traded. I liked it a lot, but I think the new stone has more fire than the one I had.

Thanks, Firegoddess I hope I can get some pics soon. I got my old camera working, so I''ll probably just use that. I''ve spent too much money to upgrade my camera right now!

Ann, at the same time I traded in my diamond I went from a 16 inch chain to an 18 inch chain. I found that the diamond did flip a bit with the 16 inch chain, and I personally don''t like a chain too short because it feels like it''s choking me. With the 18 inch chain it hangs down quite a bit lower and doesn''t flip. I was originially going to just put my current diamond on an 18 inch chain, but I figured if I was going to the trouble to send it back to Whiteflash, I may as well upgrade the stone also.

Thanks Shay, Michelle, Skippy, and Tacori!
