Hi all

I have been lurking for a little while. Whilst i haven't posted much, i have read a lot!!! I just thought since you guys had helped my (now) fiancee and i choose our diamonds and setting i should just say thanks. So thanks!!!!! :) I am very grateful to this forum and all the wonderful advice.

My OH and i flew to the big city to buy a ring. I had a couple of designs that i thought was what i want. Until i saw my dream e-ring. My OH and i both loved it so that was an easy decision. We picked the diamond and all was good.

Then the waiting game started. OMG!!! 3 weeks felt like months!! Then the doubt. Will i still love it?

It came. I had to wait. Less than a day but still.......... Then i go out for a couple of hours and come home to something tied to my dog... Yup it is my ring :) :)

It isn't huge, but perfect for me :)

Ok so now for the stats
Centre stone is 0.5ct, F, VVS2,
Side stones are 10 baguette cut, 0.66tcw, D-F, VVS
I put it into the HCA and it came back as 0.8. Now is this normal when the cut is only very good on the GIA? i'm thinking i entered something wrong.

Sorry for the new thread but i didn't know whether to put it in the yellow gold thread, the under 1ct or the bezel thread.

Thanks for looking and you can critique away. I will still love it :). Oh and excuse the ugly hands. Even the best diamond wouldn't make them look any less wrinkly :)

oh wow thankyou for all the replies!!!!!! And all the lovely comments :)

Wow Amy, you are quick! I saw my ring in the other threads. Thankyou for doing that :)

Tyty - I was wondering if they were arrows. Its not an H&A cut or anything. I am in Australia and we got it local (We get very good discount on diamonds)

We haven't even thought about the wedding or anything yet. I have seen a couple of bands i liked.

One was in Perth and it was a square band with small square cut stones in it, Only about three. I know not a good description :) but i have looked online and i haven't seen one like it
Sort of similar to this


or the other one i was thinking is this one but in yellow gold


Its a bit dark here at the moment so i will try to take some more pictures when the sun comes up. I don't know how you guys take such stunning pictures of your jewellery!!! It took me about 30 dud shots to get those 2 good ones :)

beautiful ring! it is definitely possible that a GIA VG scores <2 on HCA. the most important thing though is that you love it :)

also feel free to post your own thread AND post it in the <1 carat thread, yellow gold thread, bezel thread...basically as many as possible is fine :)

hi all

Sorry for the delay in replying. Work getting in the way again

Thanks again for all the nice comments. I have it a week now and am still loving my little ring.

I have now decided that i am stone obsessed thanks to PS!!! I spend way too much time on here admiring everyones beautiful gems and jewellery.

And i think i am now a clean freak with my jewellery!!! I am looking at buying an ultrasonic cleaner. i don't like even one little smudge on my ring!!

PS has created a monster!!! :)
