Ever since I joined the forum I've been fascinated to see and determined to own a super ideal cut round. After several years (yes, I am very patient!) I have finally achieved my ambition and am so happy and excited :D

Whiteflash were a dream to deal with from overseas, there's no messing about and their communication was very clear. I received several emails informing me what was happening and amazingly it was only 9 days from purchase to delivery to my house (that included time for the wire transfer and payment of taxes). :appl:

I did spend a fair amount of time beforehand worrying about colour and clarity combinations. I spent hours on YouTube looking at videos of diamonds and finally decided that I could go down as far as "I" colour. I knew I wanted it to be totally eye clean. Now that the diamond is here and in a setting I can't see any colour AT ALL. Maybe this means I am not very colour sensitive but it looks completely white face up.

I have a couple of pics:

One from Whiteflash and a second of me wearing it (it's the Four Corners Pendant in platinum)

Gorgeous and what a presence on your neck! LOVE it. :love: And I LOVE the setting too. It just disappears and all you see is diamond. Sigh. It is perfect. Enjoy. :appl:

Thank you all for your kind words and comments! You're all so sweet! I'm adoring the stone and it is very sparkly, my DH keeps mentioning it, I think he's quite amazed.

m-2-b I haven't noticed it flipping at all. Part of my thinking about doing the setting in platinum was the hope that the basket would be a bit heavier and so lie better, seems to have worked!

Oh my gosh, absolutely stunning on you! I am not color sensitive either, 'I' color looks icy white to me. It's really beautiful.

The stone is beautiful and the pendant looks perfect. I love the setting! I would have guessed that the stone was well over 1.5 carats when I saw the photo, so the size is perfect on you! Hope you love wearing it!

Snowdrop,

What a gorgeous stone!

I love the classic, simple yet substantial look of your beautiful necklace! :love:

It looks like something that can be worn every day, whether you're dressed up or more casual.

Love it!

And thank you for commenting on the I colour.

Thank you again, everyone! It's so nice to have a community to share the sparklies with!

I am loving this piece and wearing it daily, the size is great (although, luv2sparkle, I am very gratified to hear it looks bigger :lol: ). It's an upgrade from a 0.5ct so I can really see the difference.
