It's done and I have it back...

Thank you Chris, it is EXACTLY what I had hoped for. :appl: :appl:

This is hands down the hardest thing to do when you are truly not an expert. I have seen so many old diamonds on this website since my purchase and doubted my diamond choice so many times... there are so many to look at.. but now that it's set.. I do love it... The setting hands down is spectacular!!!

I tried to shoot some pictures in the shade where the warmth of the stone comes out and a few in the sun for the sparkle...

The diamond:

One more of the side.. I thought it was in the post.. but too many pictures..

I wish I was better at taking pictures of the diamond from the front.. I cant' seem to get one without the reflection of the camera. I need lessons.. I clearly don't know how to do those lovely indoor shots where the stone looks all warm and vanilla.. but it does.. when I look at it...

Thank you so much for the kind words... I think I can finally sit back and relax awhile and watch others try and make decisions, let them buy, then wait and finally take pictures and wear!!!! I am ready to spectate!!!

Mayk,

LOVE that the stone seems to have a more distinct contrast zone after its been bezeled, yes? It seems to display a lot more "chunk in its trunk?"

I know the journey was not a breeze but love the end result!!

Congrats on a beautiful ring - I adore it! :appl: :appl:

It turned out wonderfully May, and I certainly think bezeling was the right choice for your old cut! I think it really did increase the contrast, which is a good thing!

I LOVE the Chunk in the Trunk! :bigsmile: Thank you! It does seem very different from the solitaire setting.

It is beautiful! I love rounds in a bezel (I want one!) and your diamond is so pretty. Congrats!

Your bands are great too. Your pave eternity ring in the pic with your new bezel is really pretty and looks more square than my eternity band. It may just be how it looks in the pic, but who made it for you? Do u have a profile pic of that one (maybe its not square at all, but I like that it seems to have a low-ish profile)?

I love everything about this ring. The bezel and the subtle detail on it is perfect, and that stone is stunning. The milgrain and head profile combined with the sleek polish of the shank strike such a cool balance between vintage and modern.

A diamond with a milgrain bezel is on my "Someday" wish list, so I'm a bit green with envy here! Congratulations on being the owner of this beauty!!!
