I never added my great grandmother’s diamond engagement ring from 1917 on here. I believe it’s around 0.75 ct on a size 6.75 to 7 finger. So happy to have this sentimental ring!

I know this is an older post but just had to say this set looks so beautiful on your hand. I love this set. Makes me think to keep my stone a soli no matter what. So easy, elegant and carefree in a way. Hope you are well Laila619!

I wanted to share my new whiteflash ACA that i got (early :) ) for our 5 year anniversary. Chosen with the help of this wonderful community.

My engagement ring was really tiny since we got engaged young and originally come from Europe, and this was the ring I really wanted, so very excited!

it is a ~1ct ACA ideal cut, color I, VS2

That looks so unique! I love estate jewelry. With a special design like that, I feel like color and clarity are secondary.

My WF ACA I VS1 0.835ct solitaire pendant in platinum. I feel this is a perfect size for a necklace that can be worn casual or formal. I fell in love with petite stone and even though I did not plan on buying a pendant, I felt like I needed it. Lol. Screen Shot 2021-07-04 at 10.02.04 AM.png IMG_6435.jpg IMG_6445.jpg

My .9ct E VS2 AVR with 2 AVR melee-sized diamonds, back from when GOG used to do such things. Both side stones are 3mm - 1 x D SI2 and 1 x E SI1.

Set in platinum. Loooots and loooots of platinum!

I stinkin' LOVE this! Everything about it.

I have a quick question: do you see any reduction in performance from the stones in this setting?

No. The reverse. The setting brings out the light return of the diamonds AMAZINGLY.

This is a custom made ring that I asked my jeweler to hand forge for my niece, who got engaged a month ago and only received a wide yellow gold band.
It is a 0.24 ct diamond, I color, SI1 clarity, set in 18 karat yellow gold. My finger size is 4.75 but the ring is size 5.25. Please excuse my dry hands.

Fabulous! Thanks for the answer. I've been wanting so very much to put some stones in a gypsy or bezel setting, but was hesitating due to concerns about light return. This seals the deal!

The stones do look absolutely dreamy in your pictures.

I’m adding this here in case it’s helpful for someone with bigger hands.

This is a diamond solitaire by Garrard with their eternal cut diamond. The diamond faces up a little over 5mm and my finger is a size 8. It does need to be sized but I can’t part with it yet so I squeezed it on for a picture ;-)
