Was this the stone you were hoping to get from Whiteflash? We need all the deets!

No, my jeweler got this one and I couldn't be happier!

I
VS1
Ex Ex Ex
2.51
58% table
61.6% depth
34% Crown
41% Pavillion
1.6 HCA :)

I went to NYC today to look at it and it was beautiful. It fit in the setting (which I didn't think could happen) so they put it in and it's mine!! :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl:

I'm so glad that you are happy! It seems that you were able to exchange your stone and were really patient about this! Can you tell us more about how you came about letting your jeweler know you were not totally satisfied? It seems back in January you were going to keep the center stone, so wanting more about the backstory. Glad you are happy with what you got! :clap:

Yes he was really great to let me exchange almost 6 mos later with no penalty! I never loved the original stone (and mentioned my concern early on) but didn't want to put more money into the ring. Moving to a different cushion would be 3k more so I decided to live with it. But... I kept obsessing about not loving it. We decided to switch to round and go to an I color to keep the price the same but provide the brilliance I was looking for. I was so grateful that he let me make the switch this late in the game!!!

I personally love the crushed ice look so I thought your cushion was very pretty. However, I do absolutely love the round you ended up with and personally feel it looks even better in your setting than the cushion did. Your ring looks amazing! So glad you were able to get something you love and not feel stuck.

Thanks!!! I am an accountant by trade, so the chaos was not for me... I am so happy with symmetry and it took this experience to know it! Others feel the opposite way.... It's just not for me! I am so happy and can't stop staring and playing... I love the white sparkles all over my car when driving :)
