    [munching away on chicken tamale]

    Thank you guys! Your words mean a lot to me. There are so many nice people here on the boards and it''s great that we can all share in each other''s jewelry joy! I can''t believe that this ring is actually mine. Truly, my dream ring. And take a look at it compared to the ring in my avatar. What a difference a setting and some sidestones make, eh??

    I adore this ring, it makes my heart flutter, but I''m so afraid to wear it out in public! I remember feeling the same way when I first got this stone in the solitaire setting. I was really embarrassed to be waving that thing around. I think deep down, I just feel that maybe I don''t deserve this. Like I haven''t "earned" it yet and therefore I''m like an impostor! Weird feelings. Hopefully like last time, those feelings will wear off and I''ll get so used to wearing it out that I won''t give it a second thought.

    And no, I don''t plan to wear a wedding band with it. I might wear a band on my right ring finger though, but I doubt I''ll do that much. :)

    KRISTY!! diamond sacrilege.

    you MUST wear that ring proudly and also tell your friends and family that the stones are REAL. it''s insane for you not to feel like you deserve it. you totally do and i''m sure your husband would agree or else he wouldn''t be so supportive of your insanity (just like mine is of mine because he knows this makes me really happy)...

    more pictures!! i just posted a few more of my ''semi-big J'' in my old thread...gosh this new camera is just divine. i can''t WAIT til thursday!!!!!!!!!!

    but until then you must post more pictures of your amazing new bling to tide me over, it''s just spectacular.

    Thank you Mara and Mat. [blush] I know I exhibit diamond-sacreligious behavior. But you and Diamondfan are helping me to get rid of that neurosis and just be my sweet self. [​IMG] Thanks again!

    OH MY [​IMG]..KD it is just spectacular. I was wondering how in the world Leon was going to get all that diamond on one small 3 1/2 finger and I can''t beleive how amazing it looks, and HUGE. You must wear it proudly, especially for those of us who are currently diamond less[​IMG]. It really is just divine..definitely more pics when you get a chance[​IMG]

    honey, you are helping me more than you know!
    In one hour I will pick up my new 1.2 G and I have all the same weirdo feelings!! (It is just too beautiful for little ole me!)

    I know it''s not easy wearing these big beautiful diamonds, but someone''s gotta do it!

    You are the woman for the job!

    And I, for one, admire your courage and grace under the pressure of that amazing ring!
    Go forth proudly!

    I didn''t think you could make a perfect specimen MORE perfect, but you managed to do it! I just love the new setting and the size of the pears relative to the center stone. Divine! Please indulge us with more pictures... [​IMG]

    Oh Kristy, you''re right...It is too big. Mail it to me!!! Haha Just kidding!!! That ring is perfection! DH is home today (we''re packing and moving) and I called him in to show him. Even Mr. Notsoimpressedwithdiamonds thought it was impressive. How does it feel on??? Is it comfy? I usually think more is more so you should have a wband made with at least 5, .5 stones for fancy evenings-hehe! Ooooohhhhhhh!!! So excited for you KD!

    Thank you, one and all! I'm basking in the glow of PS admiration!

    Yes, this ring is INCREDIBLY light and comfortable! The shank pinches down into a soft knife-edge on either side of the stones, but it doesn't bother my neighboring fingers at all. The inside of the shank (side that is above my palm) is nice and rounded. Very comfy! And the pears are angled in order to fit across my finger, but not in a wierdly steep way or anything. Leon was able to work his magic and get the proportions/angles JUST right!

    It's still cloudy here. [​IMG] I really want to see it sparkle in the sunshine! (and take pics for you all, of course)
