    Hello Gang!

    Well... I finally found the diamond that makes my heart sing!
    This beautiful lemony pear came across my path on the net and after talking extensively
    with the seller, I decided to purchase it. The return policy was awesome and could return
    the ring in case I wasnt happy with it. I received it today early moring.
    I went to my jeweler and he tested the diamond and everything is great.
    I love the color, its so rich an beautiful. There is no bowtie in the diamond
    and its the perfect ratio for my taste. I am on cloud nine!!!!

    I am not liking the setting its in, so I am in talks with my jeweler to have
    it set into a simple baguette setting 2 tones: Yellow gold for the basket and the
    rest in platinum. Finding the perfect diamond is a hard task. I feel for all the
    men out there trying to fullfil a huge thing by asking they loved one to marry them
    and gettng as much knowledge in finding the right diamond within a set budget.
    My kudos go to all of you!

    Here are the stats on the diamond:

    I came upon this beauty:

    GIA report: December 24, 2008 ( woah a day before Xmas! )
    Pear modified brilliant
    14.77 X 8.72 X 5.69 ( 1.69 ratio - yummy )
    Carat Weight: 5.13 CT
    Color: W to X Range
    clarity: VVS2
    Total depth: 65.3%
    Table Size: 56%
    girdle: slightly thick to Thick, faceted
    Culet: none
    Polish: Very Good
    Symmetry: Good
    fluorescence: Strong Blue
    Key to Symbols: feather, Extra Facet

    And mostly, here are the pictures.

    I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy my new pear. I do not know
    exactly when I''ll get it reset, but I am going to post pictures of
    the new setting. Thank you all for your support and kind comments
    through my long quest!!!

    Never apologize for too many images! Just keep ''em coming!

    I absolutely adore the tone of the pear, and the proportions - it''s a beauty! And, while I generally don''t love haloed pears nearly as much as I do bezeled pears, I will say that ring is a beauty - v. delicate. Can''t wait to see what you do with it!

    GYPSY!!!!
    I am going to sell it most likely. I have tried to find a way to
    get you a message... I must be stupid or something cause I cannot
    see where you can pm board members. Has this changed?

    Anyhow, the setting it hefty and its all in platinum...

    Believe it or not, this ring comes from a famous 80''s Emmy winner show producer''s wife. They have been victims of the Bernie Madoff scheme. They liquidated a lot of their assets, and that pear ring was in there, lucky for me. When the seller received the ring, there were no GIA cert on the diamond, so they sent it to GIA to get it graded in December. I believe in the magic of numbers: I got married on 1/24/09, the stone was graded on 12/24/09 and I received the ring yesterday which was 6/24/09! The stars were aligned right I believe! Although I cannot help but to feel terrible for their misfortune in all actuality, so many time things have no turned out for me as well, I had to sell stuff to go make ends meet. I have dug in my "diamond" fund several times! This is a reminder at how things are always in a constant movement, just like the blink of an eye...

    I would be more than happy to share the seller''s name, they are very honest in their auctions, they sell a lot of nice peices for decent prices. Some of them are awesome and then some aren''t so great, but they do not mask the problems, they always are open about them, they list several diamonds in the I1 range... I guess I was just lucky. The price I paid for this ring is ABSOLUTELY unbelievably CHEAP for what it is. You can go and venture on Paragonpieces on Ebay. They mostly sell Rolexes, tiffany stuff...

    Thank you so much for the nice comments on the pictures and on my lemony friend I am getting a quote on the Baguette setting from my jeweler in a few days, we''ll see what comes of it!!!

    HOLY CRAP you needed to put "over 5 carats" in the thread title out of concern for people with weak hearts.[​IMG]
