    I was going to wait a year or two to upgrade my .81ct HPD, but the opportunity presented itself and I couldn't help myself. I wanted to go with a K color to maximize size, and since Ks go fast, @LaylaR found me one that was still on the cutting room floor. Even with it being the busy season HPD was able to get the ring completed a couple weeks before I was expecting it :) As always, the HPD team was incredible and I could not be more happy with the setting from Sholdt.

    And now for what you guys really want (for reference, finger is a size 7-7.5)...

    Gorgeous and diamond and I’ve always loved Sholdt settings for their sleek elegance. This ring looks fantastic!

    Excellent question. So I did prefer the color of my J in certain lighting... I'm not sure if it was because it was a color grade higher, because it had some fluorescence (the K does not), the size, or if the body color was just different and appealed to me more. Eventually I would like to upgrade the size to 1.5-1.75ct and color may also be upgraded at that time, but at the moment I'm enjoying the warmth :)

    Wow wow wow!! You can’t leave us hanging with so few pictures! ;-) I’d love more pictures of the profile! It is gorgeous, and you know I’m jealous with the bump in size! I’m waiting patiently until mid 2019. :halo:
