So I must start off by thanking everyone who contributes to Pricescope for helping me choose the 10 year anniversary upgrade ring of my dreams. I knew I wanted something special...since we've actually been together for over 23 years, but could have never imagined just how beautiful it would be. Although my DH let me choose - after that many years he knows better - after seeing the photos, he said it was the nicest looking ring he's ever seen. The folks at GOG were terrific, and I'm so in love with the AVC! I went back and forth from a RB to AVC, but really wanted something unique.

Details of the center stone:
2.16ct AVC
Color: I
Clarity: VS2
Florescence: Medium
7.93mm x 7.32mm x 5.06mm
Polish: Very Good
Symmetry: Very Good
AGS # 1040384350004

It's mounted in Victor Canera's Sophia French Cut Solitaire, Hand Forged in Platinum with 1.03ct total weight of French Cut Vintage Diamonds and hand engraving, ring size 4.25. Victor couldn't have been nicer to deal with. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about a custom setting or one of his beautiful designs. He was so pleasant and had a prompt and responsive manner - I just knew I was in good hands, and never worried for a second.

Thanks to Bright Ice and Angietaren as yours were the rings I just couldn't stop looking at...it was then I knew I had to have a Victor Canera Sophia!

The ring is on it's way; I'll get it tomorrow (don't know how I'm going to sleep tonight, sigh...), but Victor sent me photos, so I though I would share.

I'll post some more photos IRL after I have a chance to play around with my camera...but for now, enjoy!

Oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god..............that man and his work are making me crazy. :cheeky:
Look at that baby milgrain, look at those side stones, look, look, look. (Can you tell I'm having a meltdown here?) I just came from his web site. If anyone could pull me away from James Meyer, he's it.

All I can say is W O W :lickout: I know how you are feeling! You have one STUNNING ring lady.

I am so loving Victor's work that I just sent him a colored gem for a pave halo.
