Just wanted to thank everyone who helped me decide on going for a 5ct stone, well I had to go down on clarity and color but in the end I realized that I am a size girl! (didn''t want to use the other name that I see around here he he!)

I initially wanted to get a 5 ct J si1 EC but the clarity really shows on the step cuts so I was about to give up until I saw pics of radiants on PS and eureka, loved the shape and the sparkle! So I randomly asked my jeweler for a radiant 5 ct + with clarity of at least si1 and did not worry about the color, ( i like the warmer colors actually) and he came up with this!

Pls excuse the pics, hubby just coughed up a dig cam today and I have never owned a real camera (always used disposable and my phone!) so while I am still trying to figure out how to take pics that can do this baby justice, these will have to do for now!

Stats:
5.5 ct
k si1
11x9x6
I''m rounding it off, i don''t have the papers because DH needed them for insurance
size 8 paws (hence me needing a bigger diamond
) on temp setting, not sure what I''m going to have as setting just yet so I''m enjoying the simple solitaire for now =)

Radiants are lovely and I am so happy you have shared your rock with us!

PS....Though I do see a tiny bit of warmth, that's a K? You must be joking...

ok, i'm having a really hard time uploading!
thanks Bliss, it does really show up white, but you can see the warmth at the sides and under certain light but I really do love it! and I think only diamond lovers really look for the color because when people ask to see it, I explain that the color is not good but they look at me like I'm crazy!

And thanks for all the compliments! I'm still trying to attach and it's sooo slow!

ok, I either shrink the pics way too small to upload or I can''t upload at all! but I was able to size this one good enough. Still too blurry. I am really really trying to take better pics! I apologize again but I know that I can''t thank everyone without the obligatory hand pics!

P.S i can''t capture how shiny it IRL boo hoo! but i''m still practicing!

Thank you all again for the lovely compliments

WOW!! Fantastic. RE: the setting. I think, given the fantastic size and beauty of your stone, you should go with a simple but elegant setting.

WOW!!! I am a HUGE Radiant fan. I have one myself. I know how my modest 1.25c shines so I can''t even imagine how blinding that huge beautiful sparkler is. I would LOVE to see more pictures of that beauty.
