Hi again. I feel so welcome here! Thanks everyone. :)

I'll tell you about the ones in my avatar later tonight because I have to do some stuff, but the yellow radiant was made by Asteria Diamonds. They are great to work with, although it was nerve-wracking at times as I didn't actually see my ring until it was done. He did send me pics and videos of my stones.

I drove them crazy, going from stone to stone. They had offered me a Fancy Yellow that was larger than this one, but I didn't like the cut proportions (table was too large). The price for my FIY was fantastic, and overall the process only took about a month and half, and only that long because their fancies are overseas I believe.

Here are a few more pics of my sunny ring along with some of her companion friends. :D

All 3 rings are gorgeous but I think your sunny is my favourite. The colour is sublime, the proportions of the side stones are perfection and it looks ‘just right’ on your finger!

Love, love the three stone setting. The Cadillac side stones look perfect with the cushion cut.

Wow, that's gorgeous!!!:love: The side stones are just perfect! I can't think of better sides for that stone and they are just the right size!

Ha, I posted before I saw the pictures of your other rings on the second page! What a fabulous collection! You must give us more details about the others when you get a chance!

I hear you @Catmom. I wanted an emerald cut foreverrrrrr, and finally a few years ago, I splurged and found this ring. I think it's semi vintage. I think the EC is a hair over 4 carats, J and VS2. I love all step cuts!!

Thank you, @diamondseeker! My 'goal' =D is to have a ring with every diamond cut I've ever loved, then when I'm old, sell them and give the money to an animal shelter. However, always wanting to upgrade is not helping my lofty goal. But anyway, from what I remember, the emerald cut is 4.01 carats/J/VS2.

The Asscher is 5.05, I don't recall the clarity, but it's a J or K. The asscher faces up very white and love looking at it, but I can't wear it lately because the prong of the ring are worn down and I hear clicking of the stone! Plus, I really don't like the ring the asscher is in to begin with and I really want to use the stone to do a redesign. I may also reset the EC.

The cushion is an AVC I purchased around 8 years ago from Jonathan and set into a classic Tacori. It's about 2.48 ct. (not 2.67 as I had first said) and again a J, VS1. I love the big facets and now I'm very into OECs and OMCs as well. :D

Okay, you guys asked for it, so here more pics: I'll post more below, including a another ring, a pear diamond that's either a K or L and is 6-7+ carats, Si1. As you can see, I'm a fan of big stones and I'm not that color sensitive. My first diamond ever is a G/VS1, 1 carat round that I love, but don't wear often at all.

I have to say, @diamondseeker I'm in love with your avatar! Is that an OEC? It's stunning!

@Catmom that gorgeous diamond dragonfly is so beautiful. Did you have it made? Is it antique? It's exquisite.

Thank you so much mermaid! It's not an antique. It was made by my jeweler. She does all her own design and gem sourcing.
