The first diamond we looked at (https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/so-torn-im-strongly-considering-returning-this-stone.110775/) confirmed that I am very color and clarity sensitive. After talking with Barry at Excel Diamonds we decided to change the specifications of my search to: D-F Color, VS-1 (Ideal cut was always a given) and carat size was last. I was hoping to find something in the 2.5 ct range.



Well less than 24 hours later ....we have a beautiful 2.49 E VS-1 !! And it has fluorescence which I love. --- Bonus


THANK YOU BARRY AND JUDAH !!

Here is a link to the new stone: It scores a 1.1 on the HCA -- take a look and tell me what you think.

I don't even mind the fact that this diamond is 1/2ct smaller. My ring size is a 4.5-5 so the 3ct looked huge (according to my husband).

Now if we could only agree on the setting we want Leon to make.

Wow...to everything. I''m a fan of strong blue fluorescence! That''s going to be one amazing ring. The 3ct must have looked GINORMOUS on your tiny fingers..this will look huge too and AMAZING!!

I''m excited for you! Enjoy and I can''t wait to see the finished product

Atroop711 - my first stone (2.02 G VVS2) had medium blue fluorescence and I loved it. When I was looking at the 3 ct G SI-1 I did feel a little loss that it didn''t have that blue glow. Now I got it all - YAY. Thank you for your kind words and sharing in my excitement.

Thanks Lorelei & Neatfreak - I appreciate your opinion
