    Here is my new upgrade stone! It is absolutely stunning! I am so smitten. 3.122, J, VS2 ACA.

    I decided that DSS had truly sunk in and that I could totally rock a 3ct. I also knew that this time I was getting an ACA! !!! No more questioning my stone, no more crazies. I wanted the best cut possible. After a talk with DH about a Porsche Boxter (GIA xxx) vs. A Porsche 911 (AGS Ideal) vs. A Porsche 911 Turbo (ACA), he looked at me and said with disbelief, "you are wearing a Boxter?" Lol, I had finally gotten through to him because he hates Boxters! Yay!

    I have the luxury of living about 10-15 minutes from whiteflash and I love going there. Michelle, Vera, Becca and all the ladies are so awesome, no pressure, non-intimidating, easy going. I may be biased but the Texan sure shows through at whiteflash - superb service, just a great place!

    I knew that I wanted a 3 ct. ACA. I just had to be sure that a J was ok with me in that large of a stone. My guess is that more people would buy Js if they could see them in person. It's as white as the I that I traded in!!!! Not to mention DH really doesn't get the I being so much more than a J. I'm working on him, lol!

    I had this beauty set in a Whiteflash stock 6 prong so it only took a few days from purchase to hand! I plan to set her in a permanent setting by CVB. Caysie is working on it already.

    So here are a few pics!

    Thanks @tyty333! I am pretty excited about it! Thank goodness I have ps to share because no one I know gets it, lol! I am setting it in a platinum dahlia with pave shoulders, just like I had before! I toyed around with changing it up but I kept going back to my old setting. I really love it. Just wish I could magically make it fit my new stone. Oh, and I love mixing platinum and yellow gold. Love the contrast and I think it makes the stones pop!

    Anyone who ever contemplates an I/J ACA and whether it’s going to be yellow should bookmark this thread. That diamond is GORGEOUS. I think it might be whiter than my I, lol!

    It was very close in color to the I that I traded in! Michelle said it was definitely a high J. I am beyond thrilled! I can't even see a tint on the side!

    This has to be the most genius analogy ever (although I wonder what a diamond well below a GIA xxx would translate to :lol:)

    Your ACA is gorgeous, beautiful, amazing! Can’t wait to see what CvB it ends up in!

    Genius, yes but it's not original! I have seen several versions of this on ps. The good thing was that he finally understood!

    Oh my gosh, I was preparing to write the EXACT words of @Hayley87!!! So I'll just say it again...that was THE most genius analogy EVER!!! AND, it is applicable to my husband, who is a major Porsche lover! lol! Luckily he is good about my hobby, but if I ever need it, I will SO use this!:lol:

    Now to the point of your thread... I LOVE your huge new ACA!:love::love::love: And I think setting it in the same gorgeous setting is perfect!:appl:
