    Well, we've got a great thread of 3+ carat center stones... and another wonderful one of 1's and under... but nothing for our 2 carat beauties! Can't have THAT now, can we?! [​IMG] So I thought it would be fun to start a special thread to post all of our beautiful 2 - 3 carat diamonds -- plus now we'll have them "all in one place".

    Along with photos, please include "specs" and ring size. Thank you!

    I'll start with mine. AGS0, 2.367 J/SI2 RB. It's as white as can be - and totally, 100% eye-clean. Mmmmm, perfect and gorgeous. I LOVE it! [​IMG] (Ring size 4.75)


    The thread (with more info and additional pictures) can be found here:

    Hi Lynn
    Have you slept since receiving your ring back? I just read through my threads 7 months ago and it brought back GREAT memories. My diamond was purchased through MDX (Icestore Australia) and the diamond was appraised and set by Garry Holloway (Precious Metals in Melbourne Australia).
    Here are the specs, photos and thread links:

    2.23ct G VS2
    8.29-8.35 x 5.18
    Table: 54.8%
    Depth: 62.3%
    Crown angle: 34.7 deg
    Pavilion angle: 40.5 deg
    Girdle: 1.4-1.9
    Culet: none (0.1%)
    Polish: GIA excellent
    Symmetry: GIA excellent
    Fluorescence: none
    H&A cut
    HCA score 0.6
    Edited to add: Ring size US 5.5 to fit over my knuckle. The rest of my finger is smaller, so it is unfortunately quite loose when on.

    Overexcited about my MDX purchase?

    Santa has arrived early in Australia

    Thanks to Garry Holloway

    Hi Kaleigh
    I found it for you and I think it is just heavenly [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - what are the specs?

    MMM - I love yours too. I had initially wanted a 3 stone ring and I still dream about having one as a RHR one day.


    THIS IS KALEIGH'S RING:

    Well, I don''t post much; but I''m called out of lurkdom to post my baby. It''s known around these parts (according to my husband) as the The Last Major Diamond Purchase. He actually drew up a contract for me to sign! Oh brother. Anyway, it''s 2.56 ct. K/VS1 we purchased from GOG. I was nervous about the K color since it was an online purchase, but it was a needless worry. Setting by Mark Morrell. So far it''s satisfied all my diamond urges. Key words being "so far."

    Last one. It''s a handshot and I was very bloated that day, so forgive the sausage fingers.

    Thank you, ladies! I can''t believe it''s a K, either, but I''m glad it was because that was the only way I would have been able to land a rock over 2cts.

    Lynn, I think I ordered the ring as a size 6.25. I''ve lost quite a bit of weight in the last few months, so it''s kind of lose right now but I can''t part with it to get it sized so I''ve been putting a piece of foam tape on the back as a homemade sizing ball.

    Hi Mrs Jam
    I was rolling around with laughter reading your post when my DH wanted to know what was up. I read out your post and he said he saw nothing funny in it at all. He thought a contract would have been a very good idea for me too. Some men just have no sense of humour when it comes to diamond purchases![​IMG][​IMG]

    PS Gorgeous ring.

    It''s no laughing matter, Angela. I''m stuck changing the kitty litter for the next 5 years of my life. [​IMG]What''s funny is he keeps trying to make amendments like it''s the Consitution or something. He''s currently laying on the sofa with a Jones fracture in his foot, acting like a big old baby. He''s even using a little crystal bell I have on the coffee table as his "nurse call." I''m thinking about substituting his Motrin with Nytol.

    No, Silly...that belongs on the "Bajillion carat thread," NOT the 2-3 carat thread! [​IMG]
