    @mrs-b Yes..I purchased it and it’s getting shipped tomorrow! I should have it on Friday! I had it shipped to FedEx so I don’t have to wait home all day. I’m very excited! I’m praying it’s eye clean to me..Of course I have to put on my reading glasses! ;)2 I also have the setting worked out with David..and he has the GIA report..so I’ll ship it to him on Tuesday if I love it. I’ll be sure to take my crummy pics..I actually have a backup cushion ready on paper should this one not work out..but I’m very hopeful! At this price point it’s a steal! It’s actually cleaner than a lot of SI1’s and VS2’s. I’m less worried about the feathers..I can upgrade it later if I want which is great because even though I would have to double the price..at 10k is doable. Thank you..thank you for posting it on RT!

    So pretty mrs-b! They look huge! I can’t wait to see them set! Is David doing the setting? If so our sparklies will be there together!
    I emailed David but he hasn’t answered me in a few days..He’s either swamped or sick of me already! I changed things yet again! :lol:

    Why use Blue Nile for the next upgrade stone, if you don’t mind me asking?

    The 'flock' is indescribably mesmerizing!

    ... YF's arrays of miniatures have this pull on yours truly & I am not fighting this revelation.

    @foxinsox - I was always a sure thing, from the first day I saw his stuff. Pretty sure our relationship isn't over, either! :kiss2:

    @Wewechew - I'm going back and forth on this. The main reason I'm considering Blue Nile is that they have a larger inventory than JA, and because I might want the option to pursue different shapes (think *EC*). But I'd also love another ACA, so I'm not entirely clear on my way forward at this point.

    (Can you say..."4ct J"?) :-o :mrgreen: :love:

    It didn't even occur to me that you would be looking at other shapes lol. But that makes total sense :)

    Not setting it till the spring, @Mamabean. Amy and I have settled on the CADs, but my melee is currently stuck in customs. As soon as it gets out, it will be full steam ahead, but I'm trying to manage my expectations by saying it will be spring.

    I’m sorry to hear that..Customs can be a real pain...It’s a good idea to think it will be spring but hopeful and think it will be out sooner than you think...Fingers crossed!

    I once had jewelry stuck in customs about a week..My tracking never progressed in all that time..and never moved..Then I got notice it moved out of customs and it sat wherever for a few more days..before it actually started making its way to me..Has your package been delayed longer than that?

    No - it only arrived on Monday. However, I had to give customs my social security number, and it was 'voided'. I have no idea what that means. I've now had to give the agent handling it a copy of my SS card, a copy of the front page of my tax return, and power of attorney so they can liaise with customs on my behalf. Once a SS card (or a customs request in general) has been voided for whatever reason, it's not reactivated for a week. And apparently there is currently a huge backlog.

    This is a pain in the neck.

    Omg...That’s horrible...I never heard of having to go through all of that to proceed through customs...:eek-2: It will all be worth it when you have that gorgeous cushion on your finger...

    They're here and they're perfect. Thank you, @diagem - gorgeous workmanship.

    Shipping them off to DKJ tomorrow to be made into a ring. Pictures in a few weeks when it's done. :bigsmile:
