My final upgrade and heirloom ring

I am a serial upgrader, but I finally got my forever diamond. For the last 3 years I had a 2.565 carat J, SI1 BGB stone. While it was extremely beautiful, and I received many compliments on it, I just never loved it like I should. It was also in a solitaire setting, and due to recent circumstances, that wasn’t the right setting for me anymore. I got in touch with Lesley to let her know that I wanted to upgrade my stone to a higher color, but that I was happy with the size. A couple of weeks went by, and Lesley told me Brian was able to locate a stone that met my specifications. It’s larger than I thought it would be, but it was within the budget parameters I gave Lesley. So, I ended up with a 3.09 carat I, VS2 BGB. I’ve always loved 3 stone rings, and it happens that they had two 0.5 carat BGB stones that would go well with my center stone, so I decided to get a 3 stone trellis ring. So here it is, my forever ring until I hand it down to my daughter.
First, some glamour shots from BG.

Wow. My goodness. The centre stone alone is stunning but the side stones knock it out of the park. Congrats.
