I will have to settle for home lighting, because California skies look like the apocalypse right now.

this is a 1 ct 11-stone band from New World Diamonds. I wouldn’t call this PS quality by a long shot, but I like it. The 3mm diamonds are the perfect size for a size 4 finger.

Stunning :kiss2::kiss2::kiss2:!

The band in the middle looks to be gold? Love the contrast. Wear it all in good health.

May I introduce you all to my 1.84 cttw, F, VS1/VVS2 lab grown diamond studs? ^_^ Diamonds sourced from Jonathan at Distinctive Gems and custom 3 prong platinum settings made by Stuller through him as well. They will receive their own thread soon, but I wanted to share.

Lightbox will be back soon because I finally gave up and bought a new enga ring instead. Now I can’t get the earrings.

Thank you, they are a bit more substantial than originally envision but I do believe I'll manage to get used to them. ;)2 Ha, and thank you for the lovely compliment on my fingers, my hands get to beat up with all the hand washing at work I feel like my hands look way older than me!

Thanks so much!!! The Asschers are mined- the Octavia is still the one and only MMD that Yoram has cut - It is still the most amazing diamond I could imagine!!!
I have to add that this post is evident of how important a role CUT plays in performance.
Granted, Yoram uses quality material; mined or lab grown.
BUT, craftsmanship and skill determine how authentic MMD appear next to their mined counterparts.
You CANNOT tell the difference in these photos, and that is ALL skill.
Well done, @diagem!!

This is SPOT ON!!! Thank you for your thoughts! This Octavia is truly magnificent! Yoram (@diagem) is an incredibly talented, educated and impeccable artisan-- as you know!! The weeks that were poured into this diamond created a masterpiece that I am honored to wear! It is perfection in a stone!

Received my first MMD purchase yesterday, 0.5tcw studs from James Allen. They are beautiful, and the can definitely see arrows in these little sparkles. This will be the first of many MMDs for sure! Please excuse the fuzzy pics, I’m terrible at taking pictures according to my teens.

Got my 1 carat emerald cut lab diamond necklace from Vrai! Wow, I'm surprised by how pretty it is. I was really worried about the stone appearing brown. I went with a yellow gold setting to be sure it wouldn't look have too much color, but I must say I think it looks pretty white (or maybe I'm not very color sensitive?) It came with one of their 'GIA certificates' (done in house, not to be confused with an actual objective certificate from GIA). It says the stone is an H VS1. I'd be interested in thoughts. I think I'll likely keep it...

I got the 1 1/8 ctw princess cut necklace from lightbox. I thought there was a lightbox thread somewhere but can't find it. Anyway, it sparkles more than I thought. I thought it would look glassy and flat but it doesn't. It's really pretty and lively. Kinda wish I bought 2 to make earrings!
