    It's finally officially mine! After accidentally and unsuspectingly ruining a few of his proposal plans, he finally popped the question!

    It is gorgeous and exactly everything I wanted. It is doing something unexpected though. Now that it is set it has a almost metallic sheen, but has no silk, even under 10x. And my phone refuses to pick it up, along with the diamonds' fire.

    So, I've seen these colors: mint green, teal, steel blue, silver, sky blue (unset), peridot-like green. 20190719_154352.jpg
    Look at those arrows! 20190719_154356.jpg 20190719_154753.jpg

    Thanks to all the PSers that have posted in this wonderful section for sharing their knowledge so that I ended up getting a fantastic piece of jewelry for a good price within budget.

    I (and countless others) could not have done it without you! :kiss2:

    love the minty green and how different it is than the usual suspects for an ER. that is the perfect setting and shows off the color. congratulations on getting engaged and i can’t wait to see the necklace when you set it!

    Congratulation! I’m so pleased you love it and that it is displaying different colors. I love this setting, particularly the profile view you shared in the glamor shots. I find it increasingly difficult to capture gem colors with a camera. But I can image the beautiful colors you see. Over time as you take more pictures you may capture more of its moods and colors. And we will always like to see those pictures. Keep them coming
