Hi Everyone!

First off, a HUGE thanks to everyone on Pricescope for being such a huge help. The amount of knowledge and experience on this board is amazing. I started off knowing absolutely nothing about diamonds. Now I consider myself a very educated consumer. Not only did I manage to get a ring that blew away my expectations, but I actually came in under my budget while still managing to get a spectacular wedding band to go with the e-ring! So, on to the specs!

The Diamond
After reading up, i decided I really liked the idea of fluorecent diamonds. I also followed the advice of this board and bought the highest quality cut I could get. The result was the following diamond from James Allen. For anyone worried about buying a stone over the internet, do yourself a favor and contact jamesallen.com. I was blown away by the customer service. On top of that, the stone I got is spectacular. The pictures don''t do it justice.

VERY STRONG!!! Fluorescence!

The Scott Kay Setting and Band
I was so lost when it came to the setting. I had no idea what to do. countless hours of looking at various settings on this board made me narrow down the search to something elegant yet classic with a touch of modern. Problem was, everything I looked at cost serious $$$. Enter Pearlman''s Jewlers. On their website they have a little section called "Great Deals". What lies inside was the answer to my prayers. I called Pearlman''s and was helped by Joseph. You want to talk about customer service!? "Joesph, can you take a bunch of pictures of some of these settings"? - of course. "Joseph, can you send me one of these settings so I can see it in person?" Of course, heck I''ll even include my personal favorite. "Joseph, what''s the charge for sizing and mounting the ring"? Charge? nothing. Shipping? nothing. I ended up getting this spectacular designer Scott Kay platinum set for less than half of what it would have cost me elsewhere. Pearlman''s is amazing!

Pricescope + James Allen + Pearlman''s made what should have been the scarriest purchase of my life into the best buying experience I''ve ever had.

Now the Pics.........

Wow so beautiful!! Just love the stone and the setting. You did so well!

I love a strong blue stone - I even got one myself - I adore it. Yours is just spectacular. Could you post the details of the cut? It''s a lovely stone.

I think more and more people will favor the blue flo stones once they see what they are and that they are not scary or anything. When I first learned about fluoresence it was presented as such a negative, but I see nothing but positives. Yours is another example of a magnificent stone.

Well done - I am sure she''ll love it.
