Your new camera takes excellent photos. Those are really great shots. Better than Diana's or the former owner, if I'm honest!

@elizat and @diamondseeker2006 I am threadjacking my own thread, but an example of how amazing this new phone camera is. The hummingbird was far away (the pic is really closely cropped) and zooming around like crazy. The bird is still not perfectly sharp but given those circumstances is still turned out pretty darn good!

It is incredible to me that we are seeing cameras on phones take this quality level photo!

My parents’ driveway is my favorite place to view and photograph diamonds. Something about those particular trees makes diamonds look extra colorful.

Well I am over the moon! For my next bling project I started putting away funds for what I thought was going to be a diamond stud upgrade, but then I started thinking that if I were going to spend that amount of money, that I want to be able to SEE it, and that an even larger engagement ring is what I should do. I have a 2 ct oec with baguette side stones, but there was one ring that I had been eyeing for almost a year. After putting some more funds away and trying to sell my current OEC, my husband just said to go ahead and purchase the ring I had always loved despite not having sold mine. When I went to do that, it was already sold. I think I probably missed it by a few hours. That ring had about a 2.5 carat center stone and was gorgeous. I was crestfallen. So that plan became to wait until my current ring sold, save more, take my time, get input from the forum, do it right. But noooooo. Because when have I ever had patience?? A few weeks after TRTGA (the ring that got away), I saw the most amazing ring on Diana’s IG (SinCityFinds). It was a 3.98 carat OEC with an amazing facet pattern, L in color with faint fluor, 9.82x10.19x6.27. I thought “wow that is amazing but no way.” But when DH saw it, he was in love too and said to go for it. She arrived Sunday and I cannot stop staring at my finger! Those beautiful facets, those pastel flashes! Also, a HUGE bonus – Diana’s caption said it was in a “designer setting” but didn’t name the designer. Well I was very excited to learn that it is a platinum CVB “Olivia” setting!

I never in a million years dreamed I would own a diamond of this size. I am so thrilled. I cannot quite capture her beauty in photos, though I try. I need tips from @Tourmaline and @missy to help me. Also special thanks to @lulu_ma for listening to my many, many messages! For now, I will upload a few photos, but first videos, which capture her better:

For some reason, when I take my phone case off, I can't get the facets as well - putting the case on reflects the orangy color too much but you can see the pattern.

Wowowow!!! Congrats, @Mreader. Have been off if PS for quite a while. Been super crazy at work. So nice to see everyone with their new bling. It looks fabulous on you!! LOVE the Olivia setting! Got mine from a fellow PS’er here that is slightly modified with some pavè stones on the sides. I’m so happy for you!

Yes!! Thrilled

It looks like perfection! Have you decided if you’re going to re-set her, or leave her in her pretty CVB dress? :)
