Can't wait to see the hand shots as I love bezel set air line/gap halos!

@lovedogs, aw you’re too sweet, I was very pleasantly surprised by the pictures. It came out even better than I hoped!

@dk168, I will absolutely come back and share hand shots hopefully the end of the week!

thanks so much @kah42, David really knocked this out of the park.

@Spring Day, I meant to tag you in my post since you have been a peach checking in. It’s here, it’s here!

AHHHHHHHH!!! It's happening!!!! How will you ever contain yourself until it arrives! It looks amazing! I cannot wait for hand shots! Man, DK sure did make that super fast, didn't he? I thought he engraving would cause a slight delay but they're so speedy and still able to deliver a quality product! Is he sending it out tomorrow?

Right? I’m amazed and how quickly he can churn out an amazingly detailed bauble. I believe he is mailing it tomorrow, I paid for it Saturday so we should be good to go!

Thursday is the day! Fair warning that my hands and nails are a mess since I’ve been painting my house the past month. So sick of painting!

Also my SIL is coming to visit this weekend (I have written about our strained relationship) so this delivery is perfect timing. I can just admire my ring instead of rolling my eyes :dance:

Yes, but will she make snide remarks about your new ring?
You may have to back hand her. She will have reverse diamond shaped dents in her forehead. :lol:

I can't wait to see the new bling!

@stracci2000, I don’t think she will, she can say whatever she wants that doesn’t change how fabulous my ring is ;)2

@Slick1 and @junebug17, so glad I have fellow bling sisters to share the excitement with!

Screw her. I hate toxic people. I haven’t come upon your thread about your relationship with her so I’m not familiar with it all but you’re one of the nicest people on PS and if she’s a pita to you, she’s a pita to me!

You enjoy your ring and don’t let her negative energy affect you!

Aw thanks @Spring Day, you are too sweet! She is just a miserable person and has a tendency to say whatever is on her mind (which is usually not nice).

Whatever, I just mind my own and keep her toxicity out of my life as much as possible.

I know terrible to keep you hanging. Believe me when I tell you that I would much rather have preferred to stay home and savor the experience. Mom life!

I snapped these really quickly while the kids were playing outside. It is divine, the halo even sparkles despite having no diamonds. It weighs 7.43 grams but it isn’t too weighty at all. The diameter is literally perfect for my rather hefty fingers. Originally I named this diamond Goldie but her new name is Goldilocks because she is “just right”. The diamond itself is 1.18 carats, SI2 clarity, I don’t have an official color, sold to me as champagne. It is an old mine cut, beautiful puffy crown and all.

A big thank you to @diamondseeker2006 for so graciously letting me use this design. Also obviously a big huge thank you to David and Amy for their patience and quality of work.

Excuse my nails, I have been painting and they show it! These are taken in all different lighting, some inside and some outside.

WOW! Fabulous! :kiss2: :kiss2: :kiss2:
It's perfect! And at 7.43, that's substantial. You made a great choice, as usual!
Can I come by and try it on?

Thank you @Mreader @junebug17, I am really so thrilled, it’s a bit of sunshine I can look at anytime.

@stracci2000, sure can, you let me know when you stop by CT and I will clear my calendar so we can shop and eat and share pretties!

Gotta say that I was a little worried about losing the diamonds but this engraving more than makes up for that.

Thanks @Slick1, you were inspiration to look at bezels a little closer and I’m glad I did. Also working with David….I don’t have to tell you how amazing he is. Only wish I had taken the leap earlier!

The glam video is now on David’s Insta. I can’t tell what’s falling down? Rice? Confetti?
