Harriet, with that DF of yours, you will have one of the Cullinan diamonds in no time! I''m not worried!

What''s a Cullinan diamond? Boy, am I dense tonight!
The Cullinan diamond is the largest diamond ever discovered. The rough weighed 3,106 carats! It was found in 1905 and presented to King Edward VII in 1907. Joseph Asscher was tasked with cutting it. The rough produced nine major gems: Cullinan I - Cullinan IX, and 96 smaller ones.

Cullinan I, a 530-carat pear, is known as the Star of Africa and is mounted in the Royal Scepter of the British Crown Jewels. The Cullinan II is a 317-carat cushion mounted in the British crown.
Starry,
I don''t think that''s in my future. ''Sides, you might be "frustrated" with me if I want one.

Ha-ha Deco! I hope this isn't a harbinger for what married life is like - I may just have to delay the ceremony!!

Starry!!! Arrgghhh... I am dying here!
30.gif
That picture is to die for!!! You really are going to be the most beautiful bride on your big day!!! But why does it seem that I am more excited than you, Starry???
6.gif
Anyway, I am so glad to hear that you''re ready to go to work with your camera as soon as you pick up that package! I will definitely be dreaming of your necklace tonight!!
30.gif
Oh, by the way, weren''t you waiting for a ring too? If I remember it correctly I know you were supposed to get it back some time in a near future!?! I tried paging you once, but I think you missed it!
4.gif
Hi Kohdy!
35.gif
Ok, so I was dreaming about it too last night - no worries, I''m excited!

You''re right - I have an asscher with Leon Mege right now. It''s been about 8 weeks. I''m in no rush, so I would prefer for LM to rush other people''s orders who are going to be proposing. I can wait.

Paging me? I''m not familiar with that - bummer. Sorry I missed you!

How does that work?

I don't know Harriet, at the rate you're going.....

I'd only be frustrated if you were expecting Cullinan IX to arrive and were already obsessing over Cullinan VIII !

Kidding - thanks again!

Also, thanks to lumpkin, belle, MrsSalvo, Maisie, and Madam B! Hopefully the necklace gets to FedEx soon!

Do not wear that while driving. It will cause too many accidents on the road!

I am kinda disappointed with these clasps, so I think we will do another iteration.

Last picture for now. This one is set at 18". Unfortunately, there is no 17" setting!

Reason number 2 for another iteration!

HI:

Stunning, and I mean, stunning, neck shot. You have beautiful skin Starry and that necklace........
30.gif


Very cool to "be a part" of the process: from prepurchase--to appraiser--to purchase; then to see the transition from ring to masterpiece. Well done!

cheers--Sharon

Did I miss the size of that pear somewhere? I just had to come back and look.. its just wonderful...
So.. I showed it to my husband.. he''s like....... diamond fiend..
20.gif

My name is Michelle and yes.. I admit.. I love diamonds..
9.gif
Hi Michelle!
35.gif
Glad to know your name!

So the size of the pear: My original appraisals, based on measurements, placed the pear at 2.79 carats. However, now that it could be unmounted and weighed, it''s 2.63 carats. On those size charts, it faces up around 2.75 carats, so I guess it''s a spready one for its size!

Thanks SO MUCH Sharon! I've been working like mad on my skin and my weight for the wedding - you made me feel good!

I'm glad you and everyone who has been helping me can be a part of the process too - it's not over yet! Oh, those clasps....

And thanks Elle, FireGoddess, Nicrez, NYCsparkle, and Eva17. I promise not to drive with it, Nicrez!
