that is just wonderful news. i know the huge pics can be so misleading and will show things we''d never see in real life, or the angles make things look wonky that really are not. I can''t wait to see your pics of your ring. congrats...

Thanks divergrl! sorry for all the drama! you were so generous with your advice and concern!

will post pics when i get a chance (will require some back and forth between camera and costco?, don''t have the cable w/ me)...

but it is sparkly - like a snowflake on my finger =D there must be some chemical reaction in the brain from the stimulation the diamonds trigger huh?

Yay, momof3! I''m so pleased to hear this!


(I agree...super closeup pictures do sometimes show us things we really don''t need to know. And this applies to things other than jewelry, too!)

Looking forward to pix...

so glad! It sounds like your jeweler might benefit from a few photography lessons or a new camera - would have saved you a lot of worry!

oh, good. I am happy for you. It can be pretty scarey waiting. Our minds start to wander and we just want it to come out perfect. I do understand what you were going through. I am happy for the good news. Now hand pics

So where are the pics??? LOL!!! I''m glad you are happy with it, those blown up pictures always make rings look clunkier than they are in real life.

I always say that no picture ever does any diamond justice. There''s nothing like looking at it in person. Glad it turned out well.

sorry, i''m still travelling, so will see what i can do about the pics.

it''s almost as if they put the ring behind one of those glasses that make your eyes look all googly? seriously - the edges are flat and sharp, the pave is well done and the milgrain is nice and delicate...

like someone said earlier - perhaps if i put it under a loop it would look bad, but i''m good w/ "eye clean"!!

hehe

mostly i''m pleased w/ the diamond, the whole thing started w/ the search for the great diamond and i am so happy i went w/ the F color and for everyone''s help on picking the right asscher! i LOVE it! my table is 60% and i''m so glad i didn''t consider the larger ones - particularly for this type of setting.

anyhoo- sorry to keep you waiting!!

mom, your ring looks gorgeous. And yes, we need to get focused shots of that lovely.


Does your camera let you know when you ARE focused on something? Mine has a green box that surrounds the object. Some have a light that pops up...
