I love the way the prongs hug your diamond! It’s such a timeless look.
Beautiful!! Congrats!!Greetings! I wish I'm posting this thread under better circumstances... Now I can only hope this will bring something happy and relaxing to the current isolation life.
I posted a month or two ago asking which diamond I should pick for my upgrade. Here's the post.
I guess my timing couldn't be any worse. When I finally made the call to Whiteflash, I was told my preferred setting Vatche U-113 won't be available due to the shutdown in NY. I was ready to wait for a month or two for the setting, then Brittany at WF offered an available setting - Exquisite Half Round Solitaire. With the promise the setting can be switched later if I'm not happy with it, I pulled the trigger and ordered this setting instead.
After visual inspection on several diamonds, I got confirmation that the VS2 stone is indeed eye clean, so there's no need to spend $5k more to get the VS1. So here is my pick: 2.5ct, G, VS2, HCA = 0.9. Here's the diamond link if you are interested.
I was so worried the night before I received the ring - what if it doesn't look as good? Is this going to be a huge waste of money? But after I opened the box, it was just happiness afterwards.
The diamond is so much bigger than I thought, and so sparkly! I can't stop giggling. So happy with the upgrade!
The photographer couldn't take the diamond photos due to quarantine, so my husband has to be the photographer here. And he's done a great job! Below are the much anticipated photos.
On my hand...
Comparison with my previous halo ring (0.91ct, J, vs2)
Last but not least, a photo I took on my phone, which shows the diamond size more realistically. My finger is 4.75 by the way.
Thanks for all the help this forum provided me, I learned so much! Also thanks for letting me share!
I'll try the dish soap next time, thanks for the tip!Other than an ultrasonic, my best go to is Dawn and hot water. I clean them everyday so soaking is not usually needed. Just be sure to rinse thoroughly to remove all residue.
Your ring looks beautiful on you!! Is your wedding band channel set or something else?
Thanks! From my untrained eye I can only see the Vatche setting has a more knife-edge look, while this one is more flat. Both look good!Congrats, what a beautiful upgrade
I personally prefer the profile of this setting over the Vatche U-113 for a diamond of this size. The curved lines make the diamond's crown look less "abrupt" emerging from the prongs, if that makes sense.
Haha I was waiting for someone to notice him! He is an extremely loving and friendly cat, always wants to snuggle with you (more like a dog than a cat). We love him! However our other cat is often annoyed by him because he is too needyI mean, the ring is stunning, but I'm just going to take a moment to squee over your extremely handsome cat. He's huge! His face is gorgeous, so striking. What a lovely cat! What's his temperament like? I bet his purr is loud!
Ugh he sounds like my type of cat! He is lovely (and as I said, so handsome!) give him a cuddle from me!Haha I was waiting for someone to notice him!

Delightful! They are gorgeous. I know there are lots of people who like cats out there, but I feel compelled to call @missy here...!Since there’s a request, I’m happy to oblige!
If you like the eyes on that one, you’ll like this one too!
And one more together (when Oreo was a kitten)
The other one is Dora (also my profile pic). We have my husband to thank for these photos. I’ll make sure to let him know!
