This process really tried my patience. I pretty much wanted to give up, but I’m glad I didn’t. This is the most sparkly and pretty of all the stones I saw. And it certainly did not have the specs I thought I would like. Goes to show you how wrong I can be. Very different from my other favorite MRB. But I love it. It is “on” pretty much all the time, in 90% of the environments that I am in. And when it’s not “on” it is still beautiful to look at, almost when I can truly appreciate the precision of a super ideal.

LOVE that last shot. Most of my best pictures are taken right in the brink of sun and shade like that. Awesome!

I just looked through this whole thread for fun and was laughing about how many of these stones have been upgraded since we originally posted! I am almost embarrassed that I am posting my third pair on this thread that was started in 2017!!! But here is my truly final pair of beautiful ACA studs, 1.6 cts each, H VS1/VS2!

Thanks, my friend! After having several pairs, I was surprised at how much I loved these! Maybe it's just that the larger they are, the bigger the bling! :lol: But seriously, after your recent diamond journey, you know well the feeling of getting just the right stone(s)!

I know, @diamondseeker2006! I'm positively embarrassed when I re-read my old threads, and see the number of times I've said "I'm never upgrading this"!!

I suspect your current studs are your final destination studs, tho. They're beautiful! And huge!

Thank you so much!!! I do think I have reached the end of the studs upgrades for sure!

I am in love with your new 4 ct ACA in the beautiful DK setting, so just maybe you've found your final ring stone, too!

I got the stock ACA DBTY bracelet (7 station, .8 in wg). It was nice, but I decided to go with larger stone (a non-refundable purchase). I started the process, then the lovely @DorotheaBrooke posted her platinum 8 station version. Her bracelet had been my inspiration, so it was a dream come to become its new owner.

Here are pictures comparing the 2 stone sizes, and the 7 vs 8 station layout. Also, for anyone considering this bracelet in the future, I’d recommend nominating the layout specifically (which I didn’t do). I didn’t like the uneven layout they did near the clasp of my first bracelet.
