    The rainbow ball is near my thumbnail in the above pics.

    Below, it is “thrown” forward.

    Something else that this CBI does that I have not been able to recreate with my other diamonds— the fire it literally throws out (in a rainbow fireball?!). What am I looking at here? :-o Is it a side facet that is making the “ball” appear? That is definitely another thing I’ve noticed about this diamond as compared to my other diamonds—the sides and underside also seem to scintillate as an extra surprise. :)

    CBI’s are so amazing that modern photography equipment can’t capture the real life scintillation and fire.

    I took my .56G si2 and added a sapphire and a .57F Si1 and wink made me this gorgeous platinum trellis ring, my new obsession. The sapphire is by Gary at Finewater Gems.

    I already told her the same thing and asked if I could come take lessons. I am in awe of her video.

    @cottoncandy and anyone else interested... this is what my window looks like (note the wood slat blinds). That’s my couch where I lounge and give myself tendinitis while I watch the rolling rainbows. :lol-2: This is not the best representation of the diamond (window at my back to view the rainbows!)—just wanted to show the window!

    Bonus pic of the diamond near the time of sunset on an overcast day. Near the patio door. Hand is cupped over the CBI.

    New 0.90 F SI1 CBI in the same setting— I am horrible at capturing these diamonds (all diamonds, really!). But this gets to the mesmerizing aspect of these that I’ve seen—the “on/off scintillation” caught here with rainbows outlining a couple of the arrows. With just the slightest tilt, the black goes to a full spectrum of colors. It is the coolest thing! Just like @cottoncandy’s video above... but a screenshot here. :) How lucky am I that this is on my family room couch?! :lol:

    AEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE SEEN THAT DIAMOND IN PERSON!!!! Oh my gosh that diamond is freakingly BEAUTIFUL!!!! SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

    I'm a bit clarity phobic (it's stupid, I wish I could go SI1, it's such a great price point and I trust CBI to only do amazing SI1s) so I couldn't quite do it, but I WISH I wasn't clarity phobic or that diamond would have been mine mine mine mine with how many sweet spots it hit!!!! GORGEOUS DIAMOND!!!

    Congratulations!!! :D:D:D What a wonderful diamond. :kiss2: Lovely temporary setting too!!! Utterly delighted for you!!!!!!

    I just had to go read your story and it sounds a lot like mine :D I did the SITBI and started with a 1.40 H SI2 and decided I should go bigger, although I started out wanting at least a carat lol. I had compared the H to a J (from another store) and didn’t really see much tint in the J so decided why not. Since the SI2 clarity didn’t bother me much I felt safe going with the SI1 =)2

    Haha yeah a carat huh! And you nearly doubled it. :D I have to say I was really impressed by how white that J was in person. Maybe I was just seeing it on a great day but I was sooooo impressed. I'm seriously colour sensitive but with CBIs I seem to be very colour tolerant. Great cut will do that huh.

    I really wish I could be on board with SI1s... My previous was an F SI1 and I promised myself I wouldn't do SI1 again, and that's the only reason why. I KNOW CBI SI1s are eye clean, but SI1s in general aren't mind clean for me and that was the only reason. It was certainly a great size and such great value for money. It was a beautiful stone. It's light performance was magical. I envy you! I envy the SI2 owners as well, I could have totally bought an H SI2 in another life. As I said, my reasons are stupid. =)2

    You have yourself a beautiful beautiful stone. :lickout:

    Is it bad of me to say I don't understand why someone would spend so much money on a diamond and then not keep it clean? Even half a day of normal wear is enough to affect the light performance of even a best cut stone. I get genuine anxiety from it, which is maybe a bit extreme... :oops2:

    Also I don't mind people trying on my ring, but why do they feel the need to put their fingers right on the top of the diamond as they do so?! Arrrgh!!! :angryfire:

    I've thought about letting this one go recently since I don't get to wear it enough, but after giving it a good look, I just can't. It's so beautiful, it's hypnotic! :love:
