It isn't here yet but the glamour shots are done! I am SO excited and the photos have blown my family and FI away :appl:

In the end I went with their own Tiffany style 6 prong setting, a bit wider than I originally wanted but I saw the 'Recently Purchased' pix and it looked really classic and stylish. I hope I won't feel it is too heavy on my hand but I'm sure the sparkly diamond will make up for it if so :love: I felt the Ritani setting was too high, without being able to view it in real life it wasn't worth the risk, this setting is at a height I am comfortable with 8)

These are the glamour shots... I shall add 'on hand' pics when I get the ring - I only hope my camera can begin to do it justice!

Thanks so much to everyone who's advised and helped me, Gypsy has been particularly helpful (and patient with my inane newcomer questions :read: )

For anyone who's interested, this is my original thread with specs but basically it missed out on ACA on a minor technicality (1 point away on star rating) making it Expert Selection, which is AWESOME for me because it meant it fell within our (blown) budget without having to compromise on color: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/we-fi-and-i-bought-my-first-diamond-from-wf-d.219713/

Thank you so much for your kind comments :) I can't resist adding a shot of the arrows just as I wanted them positioned. They have been fantastic to deal with, truly. It has been shipped now and will be with me Monday! Yay!!!!

It's HERE!!!!! I love it SOOOO much!! :love: :love: :love: :love:

I have added a fair few gratuitous photos of it and will no doubt keep takig more. This is my first ever real diamond so it's a huge deal for me esp as it's my engagement ring as well :)

Oh and Andelain, the necklace in your profile pic is just to die for. Is it custom made?

Here is my very own ring... :)

A few more :) no sunshine today but can't wait to take se photos of her glittering in the sun!
And I have to again recommend Whiteflash through and through for their incredible customer service, patience, diligence and speed. I made a stupid mistake with the engage the date (put the wrong year!!) and they amended it for me free of charge and within one day at that. Huge thanks for Magen, Vera, Kathryn and Evan, by far the friendliest team I have been in touch with and I will definitely use them again.

Size 5.5 - minor struggle getting it past my annoying knuckle but at least it's secure! A little spinny in cold weather but I freak out if it's too tight :rolleyes:

tyty: Yes, they are the loveliest people, and they don't try to pressure you in any way which is lovely and rare.

mary poppins: Thank you :D the arrows are what forced me into diamonds in the first place - well, the combination of how the light plays and the arrows :love:

Huge thanks to all for your lovely comments :D I have now seen it do amazing things in sunlight... Couldn't capture it and I am sure you all know the magic I'm talking about... Yesterday it was all rainbow-y around the outside in turquiose tones especially, and the perfect arrow pattern really dark. Absolutely incredible! I am turning more Gollum-esque by the hour!!

THE PRECIOUS ONE!!!!!
