Hello :D

Just wanted to share my recent Upgrade!

Solitaire is 1.17 CTW I color SI1 AGS Ideal in a Platinum Tiffany style band from James Allen. Plain Platinum band is from Tiffany and Eternity is a .33 Martin Flyer from my local jeweler.

My original set was a .41 Pear and wrap band in YG and was not very good cut at all, but neither of us knew a thing about diamonds 17 years ago :nono:

I apologize for the not so great photos, I am a much better shopper than I am photographer LOL!

Anyway, here they are! It is a very nice size and I cannot see any color in an I (mayyyybe a bit of "warmth" from the side in office lighting if I stare at it enough) I hope to one day to upgrade again to at least a 2 CTW but for now I am verrry happy :love:

Thanks Amy!

Impatient one - Thanks! I wear a 5 but I ordered my solitaire in a 5.5 not really small to me, but I think it looks bigger also :appl: Someone, I forget who, said it faces up a bit bigger maybe 1.22 so closer to one and a quarter carat :love:

Thank you marcy and OCgirl! I was afraid I was going to think it looked tiny but I was really happy the first time I put it on :D

I won't lie, mine's 1.15, and in casual conversation if it comes up with someone not into diamonds or bling or whatever, I just say a carat and a quarter.

Haha Ame! I did tell the people at work 1.25 :tongue: They have no idea what I am talking about when I blabber on about diamonds anyway LOL
My one coworker gets interested but then laughs and says I am giving her too much information :lol:

It does look huge on you! I have big fingers (8) so I'm so jealous of all you little finger gals around here. My bling has to be twice as big to look half as big. haha It's gorgeous, I'm so happy that you are having fun with it. I love your eternity too btw, they look great together!

Thank You Thank You Thank you!!!

I have decided I am going to get my ring resized though. I am a size 5 and ordered a 5 1/2 but it just spins too much :(sad
JA is going to send me a FedEx label next week. I also decided to go back to my local jeweler and have the eternity band resized also, sigh.

I keep trying to take better photos but so far, no luck.
