    Lovely! :))

    I like the facet patterning a lot, and it doesn't seem to have any 'dead' angles, so you've chosen a good one! :)

    @Matthews1127 and @StepCutLover will like it ;-) lol

    If you have a youtube account, it would be awesome to see a video!

    Thank you!!! You are all so kind and I love sharing with you! <3
    I have some hand shots I took outdoors and some in the car that I can post! I went a little "photo-crazy", so I need to edit them down because they come up so large on screen. Some were taken on a sunny day, some on a more overcast day but all in natural lighting. :)

    Excellent :)

    Don't forget that multiple point-source lighting (e.g. spotlights) produces some of the best fire in diamonds ;))

    These were all taken in my back yard on a very sunny day. Some in direct light, some in shade! 436D28B1-F6D8-4318-ABF4-A7C93EA1D88C.jpeg C7C68EA5-5BF8-4956-9549-AFC9D9C3B7D0.png C3066D73-EED6-47CE-87AE-0C861949BE74.png BB98F904-B4AD-4DE3-A7D8-E1BB54FC17F5.png 2D5B9CBE-803C-4046-B86A-98E00227C1E4.png 00086D4E-8D76-49E3-A4F5-40C52B936BF5.png

    I love hydrangeas too, @AprilBaby! I wish I knew what these are, but I planted them several years ago and I don't know their names! I bought them at Home Depot and planted them myself! Sometimes at the end of the season I cut some and dry them! They look beautiful all year round!
    Here are some photos from an overcast day. In some ways, it's easier to see the stone without the glare from the sun! Hope you like them! Thanks for indulging me, everyone! I want to thank you all for reading my post! ❤️

    The day I have been waiting for!! Breathtaking, even more beautiful than I could have imagined! Proportions are spot on, color looks amazing and most of all looks FAB on your finger!! One of the most incredible ECs I have ever seen!!! And lord knows I search ECs like every flipping day, lol. Enjoy it... every day:)

    And look at how white your stone looks next to H traps!! Traps are 6x4... do you know east/west mm?? Love it!!!
