This gorgeous diamond is on the way to me from Jewels By Erica Grace! I can't wait! It's a .30 K/L OMC.

I'm thinking I'll set in a bezel set ring, possibly by James Meyer. (I'm still waiting for a quote from him.) I might also have my fantastic local jeweler do it in a simple bezel setting. He does great work and his designs are very sleek and modern. I was thinking about setting it in a bezel set pendant but then I realized I would probably want to look at it all day so I figured I should do a ring instead!

Grace and Erica have been extremely responsive and helpful and they're been a pleasure to work with. I don't have the diamond yet (hopefully it will be here Monday or Tuesday) but I'm sure I'll be happy with it if the photos and video are any indication!


These are the images from Jewels By Erica Grace. I'm sure my photos won't be nearly as good!

Ooh that''s gorgeous!! It''s going to look awesome in a bezel - and yes, I''d want to look at it all too - definitely set it in a ring!

Thanks, Upgradable! I agree-they have a ton of gorgeous little guys right now! This one caught my eye immediately, though, so the choice was easy!
