[Edited to add: Much better, sunlight-filled shots on pages 6 and 7 of this thread!]

Hot off the UPS truck! Here are just the first few of an onslaught of pictures. It's very overcast today so these shots aren't the greatest. Hopefully I'll get some sunlight-filled shots later!

Reminder about the specs: center stone is a 3.56 carat AGS0 ideal H/SI1, sourced from James Allen. HCA only 2.8 but it sparkles like the dickens. Side stones are 1.14 tcw, H/VS1, sourced from Leon Mege. The setting has double-claw prongs around the center stone, and a pinched shank next to the sidestones. Ring size = 3.5 Enjoy!

Background info: I purchased this stone in October '05 from James Allen, and had it set into a custom solitaire. I wore it around for 5 months and got tired of the prongs coming loose and having to re-tighten (happened twice). I took this as an opportunity to put it in a more secure setting, and also convinced hubby to add two sidestones. This LM setting is one of my all-time faves, so I contacted Leon and he did it for me in 4 weeks. I consider this to be my second e-ring. My first is a 1.37 carat RB in a Tacori setting, which I still have and love. I'll wear this one when I'm feeling the need for more bling!

In this one, you can see a couple of rough spots inside the shank. They are tiny and don''t bother me. The polish on all outer surfaces is perfect, that''s all that matters!

Not the clearest shot, but you can get a from-afar perspective on how the sides look with the center.

Leon is a genius! When i read that you wore a 3.5 and he insisted he could fit the larger pears on your finger, I thought, "OK, if you say so!"
I could not imagine it.

But it is gorgeous from every angle.

It looks perfectly balanced!

And that''s all, folks! (for now) Now I have to attempt going about daily life in a normal manner. I''m huuuuungry and also need to shower! (funny how life''s little necessities take a backseat to diamonds!)

I''ll take more pics when we get some sun around here! Thanks so much for looking.
