Hi everyone! :wavey:

It's time for the big reveal!!! I finally found my holy grail stone...a 4.5 ct I VS-2 ACA diamond from Whiteflash! :bigsmile:

I've always admired Phoenix's/Bliss'/Sparkle's big ol' MRB rocks on PS! I've also been a big fan of ACA's in general! So when I saw this particular ACA pop up in Whiteflash's inventory, I knew I couldn't let it get away! It's been a dream of mine to own a MRB of this size, as MRB's have always been my first love in terms of diamond shape!

After getting the green light from DH, I was finally able set the wheels in motion to acquire this beauty!

I chose to set it in WF's classic Tiffany style knife edge solitaire engagement ring. They were able to smooth out the knife shank, make the prongs more claw-like, and set it at a medium height. The turn around time was incredibly quick and the setting itself was reasonably priced! The end result is spectacular--the diamond is still the star of the show!

I'd like to thank the incredible team at Whiteflash (Debi, Vera, Sheerah, Bob, Bryan, etc...) who have come through for me once again!!! :appl: I'm still pinching myself in disbelief that I own this amazing diamond--I hope they know that they have just made a girl's dream come true! :))

First off, the glamour shot from WF: :cheeky:

She said the specs back in the first post, DF (or did you mean more than color and clarity?)! But I understand completely being distracted by these pictures!!! :love:

m2b, you know I am your biggest jewelry fan! This diamond is definitely a holy grail stone and one that is worthy of your very fine collection! :love: WhiteFlash certainly is wonderful to work with and they have outstanding diamonds! They did a fabulous job on the setting (looks like mine!). I am thankful that I have had the chance to see your things before now, and I surely hope we can arrange another get-together sometime this year! You have the greatest of taste and wear these pieces with elegance and beauty! :appl:

Thanks everyone! You guys really know how to make a girl feel good! :)

DF--It's around ~10.6mm x 6.5mm, 34.9 crown angle. I was told by their head gemologist that it was more of a mid to high I color.
