    I went shopping to upgrade a sapphire or two but this pretty EC kept sparkling at me from inside the case saying "pick me, pick me". So naturally that is what I did. The jeweler was nice enough to mount the new diamond that day so it wouldn't have to be mailed to me.

    Diamond stats: E VS1 1.21 carat, 7.02 x 5.38 x 3.49 mm, depth 64.9%, table 63%, medium blue fluorescence

    The ring has .27 ctw baguettes

    Thank you KaeKae.

    Thank you Rockinruby. It was a fun morning in the jewelry store. Their loose sapphires were really picked over for Christmas. I’d between through the show room about 3 times and even through the plastic gem box inside the glass case this diamond keep sparkling at me. I’ve wanted to upgrade my EC for awhile but I since I wanted to go up in clarity, color and carat I knew it was going to be pricey. I had them pull out this diamond and a F VS2 1.23 carat. The F was nice but didn’t compare to cut in the E.

    Hi Sharon. Thank you!

    Thank you Sundial, I can’t believe what a difference .20 carat made. I am enjoying it.

    Thank you JDDN,

    Thank you Kristie, I like my EC better than I like Mr Marcy’s watch.

    Thank you tyty333. Yes I do hate when they keep winking at you. I just can’t turn my back on them.

    Thank you CoKitty.

    Thank you Kathley. Emerald cuts are my favorite shape.

    Thank you LLJsmom. I am really glad I came across this diamond. It looked great to me then I checked the GIA report and knew I had a keeper.

    Thank you Junebug. It was like it was meant to be - this EC just wanted to come home with me. I am anxious to see more picture of your gorgeous new EC ring. It is so pretty.

    Thank you Callie. I would say this EC is a keeper. I can cross getting a better EC off my bling wish list now.

    Beautiful EC, Marcy! :love: It kills me (because I hate to pay for it), but I do love the E color in and emerald cut!

    Marcy, you know how much I love your new EC. The facets are so crisp and clear and fiery and icy white all at the same time. Endless facets that go on and on and on...Really a fantastic upgrade all around. :love: :love: :love:
    Nothing beats an EC for classic elegance and sophistication. Nothing. And you wear it with style girlfriend! It was meant to be the way it happened and I am so happy for you![​IMG]

    Thank you Diamondseeker, I know you pay for E color but I like it too. I had a 1/2 carat AGS ering about 9 years ago and I was hooked on colorless then.

    Thank you Jimmianne. I am jumping up and down in my mind too.

    Thank you lknvrb4.

    Thank you Missy. EC have always been my favorite shape of stone. I am glad I found this one.

    Thank you Gregchang35. I am enjoying it.

    Thank you Acinom. I can’t believe it is cloudy again today. My camera is ready for some more pictures.
