    Oh no! I love that name! My mother already named it Charlotte because she thinks it looks like a spider web!

    Here’s a little inside scoop on the design. I lasted one day with the stone before brining it to the jeweler

    I loved the way the stone looked against a white metal so I am going to do 18k white gold with a diamond brush finish (it shines more than a satin finish) On each edge of the stone, we are going to do a little indent which will look like a bezel but be completely flush. The metal inbetween the the stone and the groove will be high polish and it will be open on the top and bottom (flat parts of the stone). This way it wil go band-diamond- band

    We are also going to have little vents on the side for light to get in. Now I have to play the waiting game (which I’m ohh soo bad at).

    Ha! Interesting for sure. My poor husband. “All I ever wanted was a 2carat round diamond”- we went in on it together and made my dream come true. Three months later- “All I ever wanted was a hexagon” (I just want to find one, I won’t set it right away”- next day at jewelers.

    A excited as I am, I know this will be my last for a very, very, very long time!

    I have never seen a hex diamond before, until yours. Then IG popped this ring in my feed, lol.

    Are you planning to rhodium plate the white gold?

    I’m going to have a diamond brush finish applied. My reason is that the satin finish is a bit too flat for my liking and with a high polish, everything is soo shiny that you can’t see the stone if it’s flush with the band!

    I’m feeling better and better about this purchase. I’ve reached out too soo many people that I still have vendors getting back to me. One came back saying to custom cut a 1.5 I VS2 it would be $22,000. I’m really glad it didn’t come down to that, because I REALLY wanted this stone!

    No I am asking if you’ll rhodium plate it. 18k white gold can be pretty yellow. Is that what you want? Do you want the upkeep of continually redipping? If not I might consider a different metal.

    Ohh! Ok. Yes, I will rhodium plate it. I have a 2carat round brilliant in a platinum setting and I honestly like the color of 18k white gold more. The lifespan of my platinum ring is going to be 2 years with the amount I have it polished.

    Then I might consider a 14k or something that looks whiter. Would reduce the amount of times you have to rhodium plate it.

    I’m going to look into it. My ring now was actually a mistake. I asked for white gold and they cast it in plat950. Doesn’t hurt to go look at them all side by side.

    Thank you! I’ll be back! I think a new ring is going to solve my problem of always resetting my other one. Now I’ll be able to change it up! At least, let’s just run with that excuse

    Update!

    Stone came back from GIA (wow they are fast!)

    1.56 Hexagonal Step Cut
    I vs1
    VG
    VG
    None

    I’m glad I sent it even though it didn’t really matter what it came back as as it’s about the uniqueness of the cut. I was actually surprised at the vg sym grade- I thought being a weird shape that it would be much lower.

    Ring is now in production :)
