@Dmndsr4evr11 and @MamaBee I just emailed Michelle with my setting decision. :) It wasn’t an easy one to make since there’s so many nice options. Lol. Now, on to the details, what mods, setting height and prong tips did you both request and are you happy with your choices? Thanks a million for all your help throughout this process!

@mochidiamonds Exciting! I hope you love it! I didn’t set a height because the diamond is deep enough. They set it so it just sits in the setting nicely...regular height. I didn’t ask for anything specific about the prong tips because I was happy with the way they set my last Valoria...I didn’t do any modifications to the setting..I just did mine in 18k white gold this time because I like that metal the best. Platinum gets a gray patina which I’m not a fan of. I like settings to be shiny..and I didn’t want to have to keep getting the platinum polished. I’m very happy with mine. I love the way the prongs curve over the diamond. I think the curve depends on what your diamond width is though..I can’t wait to see yours!

@MissGotRocks - they told me 4-5 days turnaround time. They will try to expedite it.

IMO, send that thing back! You want to love your ring and you don’t. This is not a small, inexpensive ring— this is a 2 carat masterpiece. My new stone is a tad smaller than yours, but I can guess what you paid for this ring. It should look like a masterpiece. If it were me, it would bug me more and more each day. Just send it back. I think the wait time will be worth it. But, ask your SA to do everything possible to expedite it. I am not in love with the email that WF sent you about the 3 step quality control process. But, they are willing to fix it so that is great. I would not hesitate at all about using WF insurance or shipping it. I know it is scary, but it is done all the time. Send it back and grab a bottle of wine or two (heck, make it 3) to get you through the wait.

Medium -low, delicate prongs. So you ordered the Valoria?

Sent it back last Wednesday and got it back today. All is good! I can breathe easy now. And hahaha about the bottle of wine. Thanks, @NicoleNeedsHelp.

@Dmndsr4evr11, so happy you got your ring back and can now enjoy it. I ordered! :) @Dmndsr4evr11 Thanks for letting me know what you requested. I’m wondering if I need to make a request on the side profile of the prongs. I noticed @MamaBee and yours has a different curve. Seems like yours is gently curved and and hers has more of a hook and her prong tip hooks up and then lays on top. I like both styles, but not sure I need to make a request, it might just be whatever the jeweler that sets the stone likes and I can end up getting a third rendition or maybe it’s because the metal type??

Her stone is larger than mine so I think that makes her look a little more curved than mine. Can’t wait to see yours.

Thanks, @daisygrl. I think I already did too much hahaa. It’s on page 3, I think. :). How’s your upgrade going?

I am still waiting for my upgrade (being indecisive is not helping at all, as I really love my stone - except for her size).
I went through your pics, your diamond is absolutely beautiful - so clear and white! Feel free to share more, even with some fire.

Thanks! Your ring is absolutely stunning. DSS is definitely real hahaha. Although I’d love something bigger, it’s just not conducive to my lifestyle. If I ever upgrade again, it will be absolutely be max 8.8 to 9mm. Good luck with your search and ultimate decision.

Thank you! Lol, yours is already bigger than mine. Mine is 8.25 so I would be more than content with 9mm. :lol:
