WOW. Is there a thread on the stone?
WOW. Is there a thread on the stone?
Thank you.Amazing!!! It looks like a setting that it might have been in all its life...I really like that!
Thanks, Bonfire. I had assumed the bezel would be more noticeable, but am surprised by how much I like it this way.I love the super thin bezel! Gorgeous!
Thank you!This is just stunning! Congratulations!
Thank you. I'd been subbing other rings in the meantime, but was really missing looking down and seeing those OEC flashes.Your ring looks amazing!!! Congratulations! Turned out perfectly!
Lol. I did notice that the camera angle in the real life perspective shots seem to have been fairly flattering to my stubby fingers and old lady hands. Need to try to remember how that happened for future shots...What a gorgeous ring! It looks stunning on your finger. Congratulations!!!
I was really torn on halo or no halo, but am glad I went with it in the end. Profile shots belowlOh it’s a match made in heaven! The halo really suits your stunning oec—very romantic! Would love to see profile shots!
Thank you.Congrats on a MAGNIFICENT ring!!
Thank you.What a beauty!!
Thank you. The setting designer is William Welstead. Below is a link to my Rocky Talk thread:It’s old school craftsmanship and a gorgeous home for your spectacular diamond. Perfection. Do you have a separate link on the diamond? Who was the setting designer? Congratulations on the superb outcome representing a lot of thought and effort.
Thank you.Came out beautifully!
Thanks, Alex. The diamond didn't come in a ring holder, so I hadn't had it on my hand before it was set, which might have been a good thing, because I'm not sure I would have haloed it if I'd realised how big it was. I was actually shocked when I put in on for the first time. I bought it from the states. I did spend a bit of time looking here, but the inventory is so scarce the prices tend to be high enough that even with import duties and vat it works out better to buy from the states.Now this is just stunning! That diamond looks like it has been in this setting all its life. The halo is perfect & has that delicate petal edge that I adore on older stones, giving it a really romantic look. And the diamind is HUGE! Did you buy that over here too?
Who made the setting? It's so fabulous to come across a UK jeweller worth their metal
Thank you. Profile shots below.it is so beautiful! you wear it so well! it's perfect on your hand. the ring looks very well and finely constructed. would love to see profile shots, if you don't mind??
may it bring you endless joy and delight!
Thank you. The workmanship is very different than my -- definitely a bit less refined, but that was what I was looking for this time.The design is perfect but the execution! Wow. That is incredible craftsmanship that so many of strive to find.
It is perfection and ill join the profile pics chorus
Thank you.Beautiful. I’d love to see the gallery
Thank you-- the good health wishes being particularly apt at this moment! For all of us.Such a gorgeous ring. Just love that setting. Wear it in good health.
Thank you. And I know this is off-topic, but peonies are my absolute favourite flowers. I try to have them everywhere when they're in season.this is gorgeous
Thank you so much-- it means a lot coming from you as you have great taste.Your diamond and setting are perfect together! Gorgeous!
The stone is a perfect illustration for me of needing to see OECs in person because on paper it shouldn't get a second look. It's a GIA 3.08 M SI1 with only fair polish, good symmetry and strong blue fluorescence. The table is 54 percent.Gorgeous!
ETA: Deets on the stone, please?
I know! I said in the Rocky Talk thread that 3 carats was my outside limit. My old one was 2.25 and this seems considerably bigger. We'll have to see if DSS sets in...Talk about finger coverage. The OEC was big without the halo.
Aww, thank you. William Welstead-- I can't say enough good things about him.WOW! I don't like halos as a rule but looking at this, you've got the perfect balance of delicate framing and size and I love this halo. Your stone looks incredible in this setting.
Who is the jeweller? That bezel and the proportions are perfect.
Thank you. It's 9.28 - 9.47 x 5.69 mm. The table is 54%, so on the larger side for an OEC I think?Stunning! The faceting on your stone is one of my favorites on PS. Do you have the proportions from the cert?
Thank you. I've been ogling yours lately.It is BEAUTIFUL! so perfect for the stone!!!
Thank you! All answered above.Oh my! How gorgeous!! Please give us more details on the stunning stone. Also as a fellow Brit pricescoper, we need to know who made that delectable setting!
Thank you!So gorgeous! Perfection!
Hi Stonehunter,you made the right decision! there is a high chance victor would not accept the stone anyway. so you saved time! congrats!!!
