I just got the pix from Whiteflash and I can''t wait to see this in person tomorrow. I had WF set my 2.28ct. I/SI2 stone into the elaineh version of the Tiffany repro. Already I think it shows off my diamond so much better than the old setting.

This is my old setting, which they polished up all nice and pretty while they had it.

WOW! The crown style head makes the stone looks so much larger than the 6 prong head in your first mount. Maybe I should go with this setting for my new 1.76 carat diamond. Enjoy...looking forward to hand pics!

Thanks everyone!


Now here''s the big questions: I didn''t tell hubby that I did this. Normally he isn''t home during the week, and it wouldn''t be hard for me to drive across town to FedEx to pick up a package without him knowing. He will be here tomorrow. How do I disappear for an hour in the morning to pick it up? AND what if FedEx gives me that automated call saying I have a package to be picked up, and HE answers it???

I don''t want to encourage deception in your little scheme...but I would like to assure you that I think you are buying problems before they are sold.

If you are that concerned about FedEX..call them now (24/7) and tell them no phone call.

Also...you could always come home with something for him...maybe a gerbil?

Yes, MA what is concerning you about him finding out?

It''s not that I never plan on telling him, but I just prefer to do it in a time and way that is more conducive to him not minding....

I think he will be upset that I reset the stone because that ring was my big upgrade. I think he will not be happy that I wanted something more simple after buying a fancier setting.

Honestly, he could probably care less. I just don''t want to possibly hurt his feelings that I wanted something different now.

heheh....do you REALLY think he won''t notice your HUGE HONKING stone is now ALL BY ITSELF all of a sudden?!? you know, this reset could work to your advantage.....when he sees it he is going to think not only that you changed the setting but that you got a WHOLE NEW BIGER DIAMOND and spent your life savings on it. THEN he''ll be kissing your feet with gratitude when he finds out you only reset the diamond you already had.....


btw, i think your ring is gorgeous if you couldn''t tell! love the new setting, it does your diamond justice.
