A little back story,I returned an online ACA H&A I color,SI1 1.32. The appraiser took one look at it under her loupe and said it was actually a J color. She suggested I return it since J colors aren’t as valuable. I returned it to WF and put another diamond on hold with them- a ACA H&A and bumped up the size to 1.67 ,H color (appraiser said AGS soft on color) SI1. I wasn’t sure about the size though. I contemplated jumping up to 2 carat and TBH, I just wasn’t sure the ACA H&A was worth the extra$.(When I compared the 1.32 I ACA H&A to other Ideal & GIA XXX diamonds I just didn’t see any difference).
20 years ago we bought my husband’s ring from a B&M,a lot of my friends and family bought their e-rings their too. (I was pleasantly surprised they have quite the following on Price Scope) I decided to go check out Joe Escobar's diamonds thinking chances were very slim I’d buy anything from them. After spending a big chunk of time with the owner I put a 1.75 H color,VS1 60/60 on hold with Joe Escobar. I recalled reading on here how tricky it is to get a good 60/60 . After much research ,and looking at even MORE diamonds( and even dragging my DH along)I realized this diamond was the one.I tried to capture the fire and scintillation in the pics. I read 60/60 diamonds don’t have fire but mine does luckily. Pics were taken on a cloudy day,I’ll try to get another pic with the sun out.
My ring size is 5.5. GIA triple XXX , a "strong" H color, SI1, depth 60.9, table 60, no fluorescence,med to slightly thick girdle.
The e-ring band is .94 ctw F color, VS-1 platinum 10 diamonds. The other band is from WhiteFlash, the Legato shared prong .28 ctw F/G color, VS1 platinum.

That stone looks HUGE on your finger! I'd love to rock that! Beautiful! Did you get the setting made with the same jeweler?

I've read about the differences, and wonder if there is a video of a side by side 60/60 vs super ideal.

Thank you so much! My ring is big but yeah my pics do make ring seem huge lol!! The size is perfect for me though!Yes, I also got the band from Joe Escobars. Gosh I would love to see a video! I'm guessing it's not worth their time though since their speciality is H&A/Ideals and my 60/60 isn't popular lol
