Thank you to all the PS'ers who were SUPER helpful in my schooling on diamonds. I came really close to purchasing a WF ACA 2.3 but in the end, paid less for a larger stone at GOG that I am super happy with!

It came via fed ex this morning and when I was dropping the kids off at school, I kept seeing fedex vans and was freaking out that I would miss the delivery!

This ring was a 10 year anniversary gift from my hubby. :love:

2.63 CT

GIA EX EX EX
H color
SI2 (thankfully doesn't bother me in person. I was nervous about this and the color but both are good in person!)
depth: 61.9
table: 57
crown: 36
pavilion: 40.6
girdle: med to slightly thick
culet: none
HCA: 1.8
Med Blue fluorescence (supposedly makes it look like a G)
8.8 mm

Size 4 finger
Setting is from GOG. Wanted the vatche u113 but this one was half the price. The prongs are a little larger than I would have liked but it doesn't bother me too much so far.

Thanks!! I ended up going with a GOG setting that cost way less than the Vatche I wanted. The prongs are a bit large IMO. What do you think?

Beautiful diamond and setting! It looks huge on you! And I think it's really smart of you to get a bigger, unbranded stone for less money!!

Gorgeous and it does look really really big on you. The prongs would bother me a lot. I had similar prongs in my first two settings. Hated it so much I had to get a reset from victor Canera. Worth every penny to me ;-)

I don't think the prongs are bad. They are probably bigger than the really pointy, thin ones we are used to seeing on PS. But they look pretty normal to me. Enjoy your new ring!!

Your new ring looks beautiful! If the prongs really bother you, they can always be shaved down a bit to not be so prominent. However, the whole ring is new so you might want to wear it a bit before making a final decision on the prongs.

We'll look forward to many more pictures - are you taking these with an iPhone?

It looks HUUUUGE and you have tiny fingers so it looks like a 3 carat! It is beautiful!!

Do you keep looking down at it every chance you get? What are you thoughts now after the upgrade, sacrificing color and clarity for cut and carat?

At the airport waiting for a delayed flight so posting a few more pics! Yes they are all iPhone pics although for some of the closer up shots, I did use a lens attachment for the iPhone.

I will respond to people's individual comments when I get a chance. Thank you so much for your super nice comments!!!

Yes I think so but reading all the super happy wf aca customers, it does make me wonder how sparkly and amazing the stones really are. I've never seen one in person!
