Hi all,

I've been lurking for a while and recently just started posting. A coworker of mine who had just gotten married in May mentioned that she had purchased her 5 stone ring from Whiteflash. So I innocently browsed through their wares and eventually found the Bellerina setting, which I instantly fell in love with. I tried so hard to fight it, but I knew I was getting the urge to splurge... After days and days of combing through the info on PS and the WF diamond selection, going back and forth between several size and setting combinations, I finally chose a .617 ct ACA diamond and platinum Bellerina customized to dangle on a bale. Here are the stats:

Carat: 0.617
Color: F
Clarity: SI1 (couple of small crystals only)
Cut: Ideal
Certificate: AGS
Depth %: 61.9
Table %: 55.0
Crown Angle: 34.2
Star: 55.0
Pavilion Angle: 40.8
Crown %: 15.2
Lower Girdle %: 77.0
Measurements: 5.43x5.46x3.38
Culet: Pointed
Fluorescence: Negligible
Girdle: Thin to Slightly Thick Faceted



I worked with Liza and Vera, both of whom have been wonderful and answered my barrage of questions during the torturous two weeks of anticipation. The package will not arrive until tomorrow, but here are shots of the final product that I received from WF this afternoon! I really could not stop smiling when I saw these pictures in my Inbox :love:



Will update tomorrow with neckshots once I can get to a camera!

It's being shipped from WF today, so not in my hands yet sadly. I'm tempted to bring my camera with me when I pick it up, but won't have a chance to upload any photos until I get home from work -- I'm predicting tomorrow won't be super productive :cheeky:

Woohoo, I'm wearing the pendant right now! When I first opened the box, I'm pretty sure my eyes widened and I gasped a little, but I had to be subtle since I'm at the office... I can't wait to get home and upload photos of this. The stone faces up much larger than I imagined and is so bright white. This is also my first platinum piece, so wasn't sure what to expect from the weight of the necklace but it's just enough to remind me that my rock is still hanging on my neck. I keep taking it off so I can stare at it more, but it's starting to become conspicuous lol. Will update with neckshots later this evening!

Aaaand here are the neckshots! :bigsmile: Excuse the poor lighting, it's overcast and the sun is going down. FYI I had a 2" extender added to the chain so that the total length is 18"






Thanks for looking :wavey:

Oooooo...I love that you put a bale on it. WF should also offer it in a bale. It is so pretty on you. I also love that it is 18 inches.

I had it put on a bale mainly because I wanted the option of switching out the fine cable chain, should I feel the need to change it up a bit. Well this morning, I wanted to see how it looked on a box chain so I tried to slip the bellerina off, but the bale was not large enough (by maybe like 1mm) for the ring end of the clasp. I wonder how they got it on the chain :confused: slipped it through and then attach the clasp + jump rings to the links? I don't want to force the chain off because I think it may scratch the bale a bit... maybe run it under very cold water and see if that helps at all lol.
