by mrs-b » Jun 26, 2019 So this is the current diamond in my 3 stone: https://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-3872126.htm I also have 1.25 ctw in sides. I always thought I'd upgrade to a big solitaire. But as time has gone by, the more and more I fall in love with my 3 stone. You can never say never, but I think this really is my forever ring. I've had it for 9 months now, and compared to it, solitaires just look boring to me once they're on my hand. While not being a fan of a lot of bells and whistles, I like a little more than just a plain soli. So, let's agree, a three stone is me. But if that's my future, I want it to be as beautiful as possible. My current ACA 3.05 F VS2 is stunning, but ideally, I'd like it to be a smidge - no more than that, just a smidge! - larger. So for months, I've been eyeballing *this* stone, while at the same time telling myself "naaaah - you always said you'd get the big soli - so this one can't possibly be for you!" But the sheer class of this diamond is irresistible. It's a tiny bit larger, it's white, it's cleaner (and that's important to me as ideally I wanted better than a VS2), and it has the EXACT stats I love - moreso than my current 3.05ct. So I'm thinking....this is it. Also, if I'm going to stay with a 3 stone, there's only so large I can go! So this might be my maximum anyway. To that end, you'll notice it now says 'reserved'. I'm giving it some thought over the weekend, and next week will either pull the trigger, or release it back into the wild. Along with that, I intend to upgrade my sides from G SI1 up to F VS1, so the stats on all three stones will match. The setting (which I think is perfect) will remain the same. If anyone has any thoughts on this - please! - speak up now! https://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-3755577.htm @MissGotRocks - I'm linking you to this specifically, as we chatted about this plan on another thread.
