When I started looking for e-rings way back in 2004 I ended up buying a 1.3 H VS1. I loved that stone very much! Unfortunately the stone got chipped and I had to upgrade...I know tough.

So for my replacement stone I got a beautiful ES 1.76 J that was amazing, just too small. From there I went to a 2.43K VS1 but that was too much color so I went down to a 2.28 J SI2 but I could see the inclusion under the table so I went to a 2.24 J SI1 with med blue that I have had for a bit and I have very much enjoyed. BOY that is alot of upgrades...WOW...I never thought of it like that! LOL!!!



So I was looking at the virtual list and found a cherry numbers H SI2 stone that was just a few hundred dollars more than my J. I asked WF to bring it in if it was eyeclean and so they did. I got pics of the stone and was blown away so everything is in the process for my latest upgrade and I should have it next week.



I never thought that I would be able to get back into an H that is bigger than my J for just a bit more!!



So here is the pics of my new stone. It is a 2.31 H SI2 eyeclean. I asked them to place a prong near the inclusion so even if in some lights I could see it, that it would be less noticeable. What do you guys think?

Excellent numbers, and excellent images. I''m sure the stone''s a beauty. Just one thing, are they POSITIVE it''s eyeclean?

Thanks Vgirl, you will get there!

Imdanny - LOL!!
I will never promise that I am done......3ct sounds mighty yummy!!


Elle - Yes they say it is eyeclean. The inclusion is white so I don''t think I will see it at all. I am having them place the prong in that area so it will distract from it IF it can be seen at all in any lighting. From what I was told though it is a clean stone. The inclusion in my 2.28 was right under the table and was noticable ONLY to me when I looked really close. I like that this one is way off to the side.

Thanks ImpatientOne. I promise lots of pics!

Akmiss - Thank you, that is very sweet.

KT~you are like me and we have a mental disorder. We need to enter therapy immediately! Since I''m a therapist, I could facilitate the group. Do you think I have the objectivity to keep us out of trouble
Congrats on you upgrade

It''s not upgrading. It''s taking time to look at everything available and decide which you want! It looks nice. When will you get it?

Wow, your journey sounds alot like mine. It is soooo true that you really can''t make an informed choice til you wear it for a little while. I too got a lower color so that I could go to the 2ct+ zone. I had a 1.23 G. I adored the way that stone sparkled like no other, but I really wanted a 2ct+. I then got a 2.00 ct J that had no fl. so looked too yellow for me. I was so happy to end up with my2.03 H SI1. Congratulations on your new stone. You will love the large H! I can''t wait to see it set!
