What a sweet gift :bigsmile:

It looks like a nice one, request IS from JA to confirm the ASET simulation on the AGS report, and that the stone is eyeclean to your specifications, whatever they are (clean from 12" face-up? from 6"? etc.)

We can't see the price on it - it just says it's on hold, but what sort of setting were you thinking of (ring?)? I think w/ the time limit it'd be better to go w/ a JA stock setting..

That is a really generous gift!!! I'd like to ask you if you'd consider going down in size and up in color and clarity a bit. I am afraid the K color is going to be a little too tinted and SI2 may not be eyeclean.

Since this isn't for an engagement ring, it may be tricky to get a setting within your budget that doesn't look like an engagement ring. I think that will be the challenge. Any chance you'd want to make it a pendant instead? If so, those settings can cost less than rings and allow more of your budget to go towards the stone.

Thank you Yssie! Yes, it on hold now for IS images :halo: and I'll definitely ask those questions you suggested. I will most likely get a simple setting like this: http://www.jamesallen.com/engagement-rings/contemporary-rings/diamond-solitaire-ring.html. To be honest, I forgot the exact price of the stone :oops: but I remember setting the price range to be under $2000 (I think it's ~$1800 maybe?)

Thanks for your input, diamondseeker. I am a but hesitant about the color... and depending on how they respond to my questions about eye cleanliness, the clarity may be ok for my mom as she is very far sighted. I've asked my mom for her preference in settings and the one I linked was the one she chose, so I guess she doesn't mind the engagement ring look ^_^. Strangely enough, she thinks the stone is too large (lol) for a pendent but I may try to convince her otherwise :devil: .

That is great that your mother chose the setting she liked! :)) And if she likes K color, then that would be fine! I just don't recommend lower colors (below J) as a surprise unless someone specifically prefers them.
