by upgrading mama » Nov 8, 2005 As many of you may know, I have been in the process of upgrading my center stone for a few months now. I went from a .74 vs2 F princess to a 1.53 SI2 J Radiant. The setting had to be redone bc the new center wouldn''t fit in the existing head, but it was done the same way. It is a channel setting with 6 princesses on each side. I am really happy with it! There is slight yellow tinge in bright sun, like today! But, once my metal starts to lose it''s rhodium, it will look fine. All in all I am happy, maybe in a year or 2 I will upgrade color, but not size. Love the size, actually, I wish my band was thinner, like a 1/2 carat instead of 1 carat. Specs: 1.53 Radiant 6.86 x 6.32 x 4.46mm SI-2 J- color medium cut This is a GemScan cert ( Canadian Cert.) set with: 12 princess 2.5 x 2.4 x 1.75mm wt. 1.01 ct VS-1 - VS-2 F-G color good cut Total wt. 2.54ct. 6.4 grams HATE HATE how fat my fingers look! Still waiting for the "baby weight" to come off! Let me know what you think!
