Thank you so much for your kind words! I am sure your hands are very pretty! I thought of putting on nail polish (remembering a Legally Blonde scene where Elle laments that Selma Blair was wearing the 5 carat Harry Winston on "her bony unpolished finger" :lol:) but manicures have been put on the wayside these days!

I would love a D-G color 2.7-2.8 ACA with 76 LF. However, the 2.5 is big enough. I don't know anyone in my circle who wears anything bigger. My sister does have a 3ct D asscher solitaire but asschers face up smaller than rounds so I think the 2.5ct round and 3ct asscher are almost comparable in size.

Having said that, I am a serial upgrader so I am sure I will be scouting the Whiteflash inventory until I find an ACA I can't refuse. :B

Here are some pics I just snapped. :)

Thank you for more pictures--I could look at that ring all day! And that was the perfect quote. Legally Blonde is just the best, even if I am way more Vivian than Elle--"bony and unpolished" is a pretty apt description :lol:.

I've been thinking about eventually upgrading to around a 2.5 round, but after seeing the size of your rock, I'm wondering if I should even go a bit smaller. My finger is a 3.5, and I'm eyeing the WF butterflies setting because I'm a sucker for a 3 stone. I'm with you, though; I don't know anyone with a stone even half that big, and I worry that I'll feel self-conscious.

What is 76 LF? Is that lower girdle facets?

Thank you, everyone! While there is a visual difference between 2.5ct and 3ct, I am much more at peace with this stone. The super ideal cut is mind clean. She sparkles like nobody’s business.

I will say that the 3ct, also an H, was noticeably whiter. I feel that my stones look whiter in white metal against my skin and rose gold highlights warmth.

All this to say, to each their own! I’ve enjoyed my journey with Whiteflash. They are a pleasure to work with and I am grateful to wear one of their beautiful rings! :)

So the GIA H was “noticeablely whiter” than your ACA H? I’m starting to see a pattern. Not a popular opinion here on PS but thank you for sharing.

Thank you! Yes, I enjoy nice fat arrows! The stone also looks bigger in photos. It would be great if you could look at stones in person to get a better idea of which size works for you. Tiffany & Co. usually carries a nice range of sizes.

@nala The 3 ct was also AGS. WF told me it was closer to a G which I noticed in person. It was impressive given its larger size.

She’s here!

Opened the package in the car and my first reaction was, “Gorgeous!”
I observed no tint in the car which is usually where it shows! Scintillation is off the charts.

I’ve had her for 2 seconds so still need to observe under different lighting conditions. I was honestly expecting to be disappointed given the Expert Selection designation but she is big, white and sparkly!!

Thank you! I am SO particular with jewelry and have surprised myself that I have zero regrets on getting that stack!!

Your thread is a perfect example for everytime I doubted my decision to get a Super Ideal cut diamond. Even if I already got it, in my days I sometimes wonder... “Oh maybe it should’ve been OK getting a stone with a lil bit off the parameters. As long as it’s bigger and whiter” But actually even if its big and white if it doesn’t have the sparkle I want, I don’t think I can be peaceful. Thank you for reminding me of that!!!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I was just thinking today that there will always be bigger and whiter! But dare I say, we can be satisfied with our current stone!!
