My husband and I will be celebrating our tenth anniversary this summer, along with welcoming the arrival of our fourth and final baby. So for the last year, I’ve been researching and planning my upgrade that he so lovingly told me I needed and deserved! While I’m a newbie here, I have read countless threads and greatly appreciate the wealth of knowledge on these boards!

My new rings arrived today and I couldn’t be happier! In such a dark time around the world, having these sparklers on my hand gives me something to smile about!

Shout out to Becca at Whiteflash, and the rest of the Whiteflash crew! She was absolutely delightful to work with... and reassured me over the last week that everything would be shipping on time. We’ve been planning this project for over a month, and I placed the order before most of the COVID-19 restrictions went into place throughout the country.

Here’s a little view of my 10 year upgrade!

Engagement ring is WF’s knife edge setting with the “typical” PS modifications (softened knife edge, thinner shank to about 2mm, set medium height, I opted for dainty Tiffany prongs, and plat/Ruth alloy)

Center stone is 2.983 ACA J SI1

Anniversary band is a customized version of the “Kimberly” u-prong, made with 10 14 pointers (rather than the standard 9, opted for 10 in light of our anniversary). I requested the prongs be more “pinched” for a scalloped look. Tcw 1.4, in same plat/Ruth alloy

My ring size is 6.25 for reference

Please ignore my wretched nails... in desperate need of a manicure, but that won’t be happening for quite some time! 1E2F57AA-E228-4FCB-A8D7-668DD0AE42ED.jpeg 059A3533-EB46-4F18-ADE1-E3EE05647963.jpeg 263241D0-A036-43B8-8707-B4D0D60C1CDB.jpeg CC0D7088-65E7-4CE0-B049-27635648400C.jpeg 0ACDA1DA-2794-47EB-8961-6FCF7D4C1F93.jpeg BB9F9AB6-08DE-45B9-AF27-EE6D086BFD3F.jpeg 1E2F57AA-E228-4FCB-A8D7-668DD0AE42ED.jpeg 059A3533-EB46-4F18-ADE1-E3EE05647963.jpeg 263241D0-A036-43B8-8707-B4D0D60C1CDB.jpeg CC0D7088-65E7-4CE0-B049-27635648400C.jpeg 0ACDA1DA-2794-47EB-8961-6FCF7D4C1F93.jpeg 7DDA4117-A2F9-4E38-A3B3-73485563EBC7.jpeg BB9F9AB6-08DE-45B9-AF27-EE6D086BFD3F.jpeg

So so lovely! I’d love to know what you upgraded from and how you like the differences.
My original e-ring is a 1.43ct cushion cut, GIA G SI1. A close family friend is a local jeweler so my husband had no choice but to use him... and quite frankly we didn’t know any better. I fell in love with the Tiffany Novo setting, so he attempted to make that for me... it wasn’t a perfect replication, but for 25 yo me, I adored it! I wore my e-ring with a diamond pave band closest to me, and a diamond/sapphire band on the outside... remember, 10 years ago when bands on both sides was popular! I am still very sentimentally attached to my original stone, and will have it reset into a RHR that currently has a sapphire and two small round diamonds. Haven’t decided what to do with my two original wedding bands... one may end up being a spacer to prevent damage to my new set! I will say, the sparkle in this ACA blows my cushion out of the water!!

Thank you all for your very kind words! I keep looking down at my hand and smiling, it’s a wonderful distraction from the reality going on outside. I’ll admit, I was hesitant about going with a J... but I must not be remotely color sensitive because I can’t see any tint! Just a lot of sparkle :kiss2:
