Finished ring is here!!!

Diamond: Whiteflash ACA .302 F VS1

Ring: Bruce Boone custom diagonal cut tension ring made out of black zirconium

Ring specs:
1. Brushed black zirconium
2. 5 mm width
3. Ring size 7.5
4. Flat top, comfort fit inside
5. Finger hole is offset away from the stone side. That leaves the stone side slightly thicker (~3.15 mm), the bottom thin (~2.16 mm), and the space between fingers to be mid-way between.
6. .5 mm gap between the culet of the diamond and the bottom of the ring (portion that touches my skin)
7. Diamond set so the table is higher than the ring to allow maximum light exposure while still being securely set.
8. Diamond set so the AGS inscription can be viewed 20230907_113128.jpg

Wow, I’m in awe of your ring! What a great result! I’m curious what you think now that you are wearing it. Is it comfortable? How is the weight of the metal? Does the set down superideal ACA flash as much as you wish? I love the full side profile view of the diamond and the tapering of the shank in profile. Well done on your vision coming true!

Thank you! Yes, it's a one of a kind ring!

Thank you! Ring is comfortable. Not too thick on the sides and not too thin for durability issues. Weight of the ring is nice. Not super light like titanium, but not heavy like tungsten carbide. I would say lighter than platinum, but still has a nice heft to it. The performance of the diamond is amazing! Way more fire and sparkle than I was expecting. Awesome contrast against the black zirconium. I had to teach my fiancée how to properly clean her 1.12 ACA set in a Vatche U113 as she commented that mine was more sparkly. Her diamond had so much gunk on the pavilion. 15 minutes of using Dawn soap and a soft toothbrush and it was sparkly again. We both were amazed on how it completely changed her stone.

Yes! Keeping it clean is so important!
