Heya everyone!

I was so excited when I went to Good Old Gold to see my diamond, that I forgot to take pics! DOH!
Fortunatly, Jonathan was kind enough to take pictures for me! What a sweetheart!

Not only that, but he even used my diamond in a video to compare mine to one of slightly lesser quality cut.
AND there's a vid of just my diamond as well....hooray!

So here, I finally have something for the show off section....wheee!

Video of just my diamond is at the bottom of the videos on this page: http://www.goodoldgold.com/video/ Cat's .55ct D IF

The one comparing the two is two above, starting with the word 'Question' in bold:)

....and now for some pics!

And the tension setting it's being put in....minus the band in the pic....
It's by Gelin & Abaci:)





Anyhoo, thanks for looking, and lemme know what you think!

I promise to get some cool shots of the fluorescence and setting as SOON as it's in my possession:D

That is a BEAUTIFUL diamond!!

I LOVE that you got a D with strong blue.

And your setting is gorgeous as well...

I am sure you already know, but you''re going to have to post photos when it''s all done.

Thanks!

Oh yes, I'll post em right here!
The diamond is being sent off to RockDoc, and then to Gelin & Abaci through Jan at Diamond Brokers of Florida.
Of course, I'm not allowed to see it after seeing it with RockDoc, so I hope Bryan hurries up and proposes so I can add the pictures here;-) Hee hee!

He certainly does!
I''m happy I finally found the right setting. Actually, this one wasn''t even in the equasion until I saw it. It was blinging itself right through the glass, and that was pretty much it for me!

I just love this type of tension setting, makes the diamond really pop....!
(Hopefully not POP out....that is not such a good thing!;-)

G&A settings are so nice, aren''t they????????

beautiful! Not sure if I''ve ever seen a D IF before! Neat!

Thank you:)

Well I''ll tell ya, it was a pain in the @$$ to find! A lot of people can''t understand why I''d go for that, but I think it''s really neat as well....
And to find it with strong blue fluorescence, with a perfect cut, well, that was just plain luck....

Bryan thought my obsession with diamonds would end after this quest....
....it hasn''t, to his dismay I am sure!

Hee Hee!

Hehehe! I knew you''d find this post real soon:D
I can''t wait either....very soon very soooooon!

I LOVE G&A settings. This was one of their new ones, less thick between the fingers so you can actually close your hand. Not only that, the little diamonds really gave it that extra sparkle! I thought I was in love with them before, but after seeing this setting, I was just like....


Gotta get those UV pics, eh!!!!

oooh it's GOOOOOORGEOUS!!!
You are so lucky to have found just what you wanted. I'm not very diamond-experienced so I've never seen the strong blue flourescence before, but man, it sure adds some extra OOMPH!

The setting is also beautiful and so unique. I can't wait to see the final shebang!

CONGRATULATIONS!!



ETA: It's almost like the pics are computer generated! Looking at them it almost doesn't look real because it's so perfect. Drool.

Awww thank you so much! Those pics do look seriously cool, but I am sure that''s due to Jonathans camera work as well

I am very glad I found what I was looking for....I was very strict on the details, and wouldn''t settle for anything else, and I''m glad I stuck to my guns now!

If you want to see that fluoro extra OOMPH in a D coloured diamond, check out the diamond belonging to ecf8503. Very cool!

It''s beautiful!!! It sparkles like mad and the setting you chose is unique yet feminine. It''s going to be an amazing ring, you better take a bunch of pictures.

Thank you!

I just loved the setting when I saw it. I was originally trying to choose between two other styles that were similar but no little diamonds. Of course, when I saw this new one, I was just like: WOW!!

Cat, a twin perhaps? (the link is different than the one you supply, and there seems to be less info, but otherwise looks like the same stone!
)
