Those of you that have been following my diamond search know that I ultimately picked a beautiful 1.48 GIA M stone I affectionately named "Wonky" because of its asymmetey. After sending it back to Adam (with OWD) on Monday, he had it set and back to me by yesterday! My boyfriend and I decided to check it out to make sure it was okay, and took some pics in the process! Haven't put it in my left ring finger yet... That's for after he proposes to me, whenever that is!






More pictures to come!

It turned out so beautiful!! Live the pointy prongs and the profile. And yeah they did set the stone to minimize the wonkiness I think by putting the wider part between prongs instead of at the prong. Really beautiful. I love her name too. Wonky :lickout:

Do you have on of the profile I can hardly tell which setting you decided on.

It's stunning, none the less

That's the Stuller setting, right? The ring looks lovely. I hope you get to wear it soon!

The very close-up shot with pomegranate-colored facets is fabulous! So pretty. Please give us a close-up side shot.

Thank you everyone! Initially I was mildly freaked out by the shadowing, but then I learned about "head obstruction" and am feeling better (also helps that the diamond's light performance is even more lively set). Having the diamond set does change the diamond's optics!

Anyway, here are pics from the side!

I'm pretty thrilled with the setting choice! It's simple, elegant, and the band is the perfect width for me! Also, it's set lower than I thought, which is a pleasant surprise!

I went ahead and tried it on because I couldn't wait and because I tried on size 5 rings at Costco today, only to find them too tight. This size 5 is snug, but not so much that I have to struggle to remove the ring. Whew.

I can't wait to start wearing it!

Wonky is pretty in its new home :appl: :appl: What weather was it when you tried on Wonky and noticed it's snug? If it's swollen fingers day and it's snug, it's alright. But if it's cool weather and less salt and it's snug and there's no weight loss intention, you might want to wear it for a day or two to determine if you need to size it up. I love your setting :love:

ETA: I don't recall if my stones have that dark effect when I hold it 180 deg. I'm not wearing any now. Will check and let you know.

Is it my eyes in one of the side profile pictures the stone looks tilted or was that how they had to set it because of its wonkiness.

Thou maybe that would be super cool wonky diamond in wonky setting - anyways shes a real beauty :appl:

Quick question: did you have to ask stuller to do the prongs like that, or did they do it that way automatically? I love the way the claws look!

I can't get the dark center when held parallel to ground. Might have something to do with the lighting. I stood at the kitchen door with kitchen lights on but turned off living room lights. Think I didn't do it in the right lighting condition. Since it takes a bit of effort to achieve the right lighting condition for that to happen, I don't think you have to worry about it. It's a charming diamond with a beautiful setting.

Just FYI, Stuller doesn't set the stones. The jeweler orders their settings and sets the stones, so I assume that OWD set the stone in the setting for her. You really have to specify to any jeweler how you want the prongs to be because many just do little balls at the top.

Awwww thank you everyone! Indeed, Adam's bench set the diamond with the tiny eagle claw prongs! I'm a fan!

Unfortunately, the ring has since been confiscated by my boyfriend because I couldn't stop playing with it over the weekend! ;(
When I'll get it back, it's a mystery! I'll definitely be posting more pictures once I do!

Thanks to everyone for the advice and help during this crazy process! I never would have found this ring without your support! Thank you thank you thank you!!!! You all are the best! :love:
