Thank you...and that totally makes sense...it's just easier to show her true natural sparkle that way...lol! Photos just don't capture it...Wow!!!! So insanely beautiful! Thanks for the pics
I think you can't post videos here because it protects you from being tracked down by unscrupulous people.
Thank you, ac117!!!Lovely stone and setting!! Can't believe she's an SI2!!! Love the name and the sentiment behind it as well. Wear her in good health!
Thank you, Tekate!!OMG.. Matthews I think your jewelry is lovely, the meaning to me is profound and to people like you and me, jewelry is not only beautiful, tantalizing, and bling but reaches deeper, I probably sound like an idiot but much of what I have (not a lot) means something special to me.. not just to wear but a symbol.. love your ring, love emerald cuts.. happiness abounds.. thank you for sharing!!
Thank you, westjenn!I love your EC! The band is a great match too Lovely sentiments in your post too
I think I'm done searching (for now) I have a wonderful DBL bezel set EC solitare ( I don't think I've posted about it) that I just adore. I really coveted that ring on the DBL website and was lucky enough to get it 2nd hand (or 3rd hand idk ) on JBG.com. I have such a soft spot for ECs.Thank you, westjenn!
You must tell me more about your EC search! Any luck?! You must go with your heart; each piece tells a story, and speaks to their chosen owner. I do hope something beautiful has spoken to you!!!
No you have not posted about it because I searched through your threads that you have posted and that is how I discovered that you were in search of an EC!!! Now, I'm dying!! Can you post the DBL Bezel EC in SMTB?!?I think I'm done searching (for now) I have a wonderful DBL bezel set EC solitare ( I don't think I've posted about it) that I just adore. I really coveted that ring on the DBL website and was lucky enough to get it 2nd hand (or 3rd hand idk ) on JBG.com. I have such a soft spot for ECs.
I LOVE everything about your engagement story, your collage, and your GORGEOUS rings! Congratulations... Those rings are so pretty and look fabulous on your hand! Hubby made an A1 choiceGood Morning, PSers!!!
After months of scrolling (and trolling), and drooling, and sharing, I finally decided to start my own thread to introduce my Engagement Ring (and my Wedding Band-after all, they ARE BFF's)!!
Recently, I posted a thread about how to "name" a diamond. After several hours of debate & discussion, I did some research & I came up with a name that suited my center ER diamond: Uisce
(Pronounced "Ish-ka" or "Oohsh-ka", depending on the dialect)
"Uisce" is Irish Gaelic for "Water".
My DH proposed to me, upon blended knee, on a bridge that overlooks a beautiful lake, in October. The water was clear & still, and it was a beautiful, sunny day. I couldn't have created a more picture perfect scene for a proposal, if I had tried.
When he opened the box, a gorgeous Emerald Cut Diamond stared back at me; clear and mesmerizing...just like the lake. She was absolutely stunning, and I had to close the box to concentrate on him, rather than the hypnotizing sparkler!
From that day on, I have always remembered that day, and how perfect the lake was; how clear & beautiful. Every day I look at my ring, I think how much she resembles the water, and it's mesmerizing qualities; smooth, clear & endless.
My DH & I share many heritages, but the one we chose to integrate into our wedding ceremony was our Celtic Heritage. Inscribed on the inside of our wedding bands (and written on the outside of our ceremonial programs) are the words "Buann gra' gach rud". Translated LITERALLY: "Love Wins Everything". Our slogan throughout our relationship has been "Love Conquers All". We face every obstacle & challenge head on, together, and that has only made us stronger & more united.
When carefully choosing a name for my beautiful, clear Emerald Cut, I decided to follow the Gaelic theme for her name: "Uisce"; "Water". Water is associated with so many other likenesses: fluidity, adaptability, and balance, which I believe defines who he & I are, as a couple. "Uisce" fits, perfectly.
Without further ado, I am completely ecstatic to formally introduce you to Uisce
As you can imagine, choosing just ONE photo, or a "few" to share was painstakingly difficult, and I don't like photo clutter, so, I created a collage of SOME of my favorites of my beautiful Uisce.
Emerald Cut Diamond
VG Cut/VG Symmetry
6.90 x 4.74 x 3.28mm
L x W ratio: 1.45:1
(Her certificate does not give me specs on her table, girdle, culet, etc. If an ASET exists, my DH never kept it-he's not a jewelry person *GASP*! lol!)
She is Cut very well, and faces up quite large. Her table is long & slender & creates a very still water effect. The facets sparkle magnificently, and she loses very little to no light for an EC. She dims & brightens in all the right places; her flashes are intense, and blinding. She has beautiful reflective qualities, just like the lake; she is quite impressive for her size.
I can share more details about her setting, mounting, and BFF wedding band upon request; this thread was created just for her.
I should mention that my DH & I did shop together for ideas for my ER, but he was the one who ultimately decided what to purchase.
He was also very involved in the selection of my wedding band.
Considering he is not familiar with jewelry, I think he did an AMAZING job!
FeFeV,I LOVE everything about your engagement story, your collage, and your GORGEOUS rings! Congratulations... Those rings are so pretty and look fabulous on your hand! Hubby made an A1 choice
Mannn! Came here for a little pick-me-up and I can NEVER get tired of that magnificent fire and sparkle of your step cuts! How do you not just stand in a mirror all day looking at those rings?!! Thanks for the new collage
"... high maintenance diamond queen"As for your money tree...we wish we had one, too...esp now that my DH married a high maintenance diamond queen, and we have kids going into college, soon!
5+ carats would be amazing!! If you find that money tree, pull off a couple seeds & send them to me!!!
