I think I may have set some kind of lurking record, but I had to share some pictures of my AVC. I've had it for about a year now (I know, shame on me) and I'm completely in love with it. I have to say a huge thank you to everyone on Pricescope because without all of you I never would have known about AVCs! I'd also like to thank Jon for taking the time to answer all of my questions and for making it unbelievably easy and stress-free to purchase a diamond, sight unseen, from across the country.

Here's a link to the stone: http://www.goodoldgold.com/diamond/7107

The setting is from 23rd Street Jewelers in Santa Monica, CA. They were also fantastic to work with and did a beautiful job.

I'm going to attempt to attach some pictures, hopefully it works. She's a little dirty in some of them, sorry!

It reminds me alot of the tacori pendant that I believe is the 2620, it matches the very popular engagement ring but, this is better! The halo on your pendant is so much more substantial and prettier :appl: :appl: :appl:

Thanks so much everyone! It means so much to hear your kind words, especially since there are so many of you whose jewelry I have admired (and stalked) over the years.

lizzyann - it's a custom, handmade piece.

bethprov - I actually considered putting it in a Tacori setting. I can't remember which one, but it was probably the one you mentioned, since it was similar to what I ended up with. Jon had suggested it since Tacori had just come out with a new line of pendants. When I went to 23rd Street I saw an OMC halo pendant and it was exactly what I had envisioned, so I decided to just go for it and have them make the setting.


And because I believe you can never have too many pictures, here's one more.

Oh my gosh, that is stunning! It's so sparkly and delicate, but it has a great presence on your neck. Perfect!
