So my boyfriend and I are taking the next step! Bought a beautiful stone from DBL in October and sent it to David Klass for him to do his magic. It is an Oval and will be in a split shank halo. Fun thing I requested - the halo stones will all be flourescent. I just think flourescence in a diamond is cool and wanted something special for me. Can't wait for the finished product and the beginning of the rest of my life!

(waiting is so hard!)

CENTER STONE:
WEIGHT: 1.45ct
QUANTITY: 1
SHAPE: Oval Modified Brilliant
COLOR: Y-Z, Natural Light Yellow
CLARITY: VS2
MEASUREMENTS: 9.16 x 6.58 x 3.60 mm
TOTAL DEPTH: 54.7%
TABLE SIZE: 58.0%
POLISH: VG
SYMMETRY: G
FLUORESCENCE: FAINT

Oohhh, i can't wait to see the finished product. Funny thing, i got a new LED light for my gel nail kit and it's large enough to fit my whole hand under. well, i was surprised to find that my pave ER and WB both have a few diamonds that are fluorescent. VERY cool!

That sounds awesome! Fluor and Phos are some of my favourite things about diamonds :love: Sounds like it's going to be a knock out ring!

Can't wait to see it!

LOVE the idea for the fluor halo! I love fluorescence! Fell in love with it at the Smithsonian mineral exhibit -- they've got a big case of rocks that look like nothing ... then the black light comes on and it is a glowing neon-colored show! I was transfixed. I've yet to see my ring under a black light, but I'm looking forward to it (although mine has only medium blue fluor).

Are the different colors in the cad reflecting different metal types or colors you intend you use? Will there be diamonds on the split shank as well? Looks like it's going to be a lovely ring so I can't wait to see some pics.

I'm not sure why a cad has different colors like that. The ring will be either white gold or plat - not sure what the boyfriend picked. There will be a yellow cup under the stone to help enhance the color and the gallery will be white gold/plat to match the ring.
There will be diamonds down the sides of the ring as well as the halo - not sure why he didn't add them in the cad - but they will be there!

Well, I finally got it! Christmas Eve at a family dinner. He pulled off a surprise and made me cry. It is so beautiful. More than I hoped for. Going to try to load some pictures though I have never done it before.

Ignore the rude troll post above :angryfire: Can't figure out why some people say anything at all.... :wall:

That ring is gorgeous!!! I love it, and am hoping for a photo that shows the flour also since I think that is such a great idea to have halo stones show it. :love: Congrats on your engagement and please post most pics! :D

What a stunning ring!!! David nailed it again. Your stone and setting are fabulous. Congrats and enjoy wearing this beauty.

OP & other posters: please completely ignore the troll. The post has been reported and I am sure it will be removed (and the poster hopefully banned).

Wow, I totally missed the troll post. But it's all good. Thank you all so much. Pictures don't do it justice. The beautiful stone was found for me by David at DBL and the ring was made by David Klass. They are both phenomenal! Will get black light photos very soon!!!!! Thank you all!
