I know, right? It's amazing what those traps add. Sigh......waiting is NOT my strong suit!
Thank you so much diamondseeker2006! I really wanted the EC to stand out, no halos, etc. I was amazed at how these traps added but did not detract. I am very fortunate to have my Jeweler. She does outstanding custom jewelry. We may be down in FL when this ring is completed and she is already making plans to bring it down to us if we are. Now that is some service!How exciting! I love your new diamond, Michelle! I also think you chose a great pair of traps! I really prefer accent traps to allow the center stone to stand out! I've said this before, but you are so fortunate to have an excellent local jeweler! I can't wait to see your finished ring! (And you just reminded me that I have probably the same bad birthday in 2020, so I need to think of a good consolation gift, too! )
Thank you dk168. It's funny you say this. We must have looked at 20 or more ECs all in the 1.30 - 1.40 L/W ratio because I thought I like chubby more yet none of them really spoke to me. Then came this one which is 1.50 and boom, there it was saying "BUY ME". Add in those traps and perfection happened in my eyes and I guess that is all that matters, right?I look forward to seeing pics of the finished ring as it will be stunning!
I love the main stone for its more slender shape as I am not a fan of chubby ECs if one knows what I mean.
I believe diamonds/CSs communicate to me, like my own EC.Thank you dk168. It's funny you say this.

Thanks mrs-b! I have such small, stumpy fingers I can't have anything too big. My ring size is 4.75 so I think this is about all the finger coverage I can manage. Originally we thought it would be done by the end of February but at our last meeting my jeweler felt it may be done sooner, maybe end of January. Here's hoping for that! My birthday is in May and Anni is in August. We started early, lol.How lovely! Mine is for a big birthday also (60th) and I'm planning on a plain bezel. I've always wanted a really warm stone; I loved the 2ct R colored AVC I briefly owned ,but immediately wanted something even more tinted and considerably larger. So I'm hoping this fits the bill.
I love the proportions you've chosen for your stones - those baguettes are faboosh! I love that they're not too large. But given your small fingers, you could have no baguettes at all, and you're *still* going to get amazing finger coverage! When are you hoping to have it done? My birthday is mid-year.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
Thank you so much luv2sparkle! 2019 was such a horrible year for us that 2020 just has to be better. This will certainly help, lol. I hope you had a wonderful birthday and congratulations on your upcoming 40th Anniversary!I love it, Catmom!!!! I love the stone and especially the traps! If I could have a second ring, I would love to have one like that! Holy moly! I think we are about the same place in life and started out the same as well. I just turned 60 and we are celebrating our 40th next July. I cant wait to see your new ring. It is going to be fabulous! Congratulations on all the wonderful things happening for you this year!
Aww thank you KristyDarling! I will keep you at the top of the list should I ever need it.
Thank you so much Siamese Kitty! I really thought I liked the pudgy ones better yet it was this one that called to me. It's going to be so hard to wait.
