Here is my upgrade from IDJ. It is a 2.6 ct I SI1 with SBF. The biggest difference is definitely the cut, I love seeing the arrows and so much more sparkle.

I also purchased a platinum u-prong eternity ring with 12 point diamonds. I included photos of it next to my old 7/8 pointer eternity for some size perspective since I had trouble finding photos when I was researching for my purchase. They are all size 5.5 although I am a 5.25.

Then I got myself a pair of 0.70 ctw 14k white gold screw back studs with claw prongs. I think they are a lovely size for daily wear.

Finally I purchased a 1.04 ct I VS2 cushion cut pendant set in 14k white gold with double claw prongs. I think it is very classic looking but I was going for something different than the usual round.

I find it interesting to see the two shades of I colored stones next to each other. Sometimes we have earrings that have different color grades and we can't tell between the two, but these are both I's and I can definitely see the cushion has more tint than my e-ring. I wonder if it's due to shape, size, fluorescence (the pendant has none) or the stones being at different ends of the I color grade. Maybe a combination of all?

Stunning, so classy and the Vatche is perfection. I often wonder whether it's worth the extra cost over generic settings - until I see photos like this!

I love it all! Your solitaire is amazing! What a great stone and a wonderful setting! Who doesn't love an eternity (or 2). Your studs look lovely on you.

Oh, but your cushion pendant has my heart! That pendant is positively dreamy! :love: :love: :love:

Congrats! Everything looks fantastic!

Are you still in love? It looks so great on your hand. I am anxiously awaiting my upgrade. I have suspicions that the dh told them to call him...not me when done so he has an anniversary present. Speaking of which, I better get him one. Any ideas ?
Also, I purchased the spacer band on etsy like yours, I can't wait to receive that package either!

Be... Still...My...Heart... :shock: :love: :love: :love:
First of all, those arrow shots of your solitaire - AMAZE-BALLS!!!
What's nuts is that I don't see any difference in color when you wear your eternity next to the 2.6 I solitaire!!! It's truly a high I, and I can vouch for how white it is!

The studs are lovely on you! They look big and more substantial than 0.7 ctw!!!

The pendant is very pretty too! I think that the cut of a RB will always mask color better than a fancy, and the fluor for sure is such a positive benefit!!!

I LOVE YOUR HAUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl:

What beautiful pieces! Amazing!

I love the look of a solitaire with an eternity and your set is incredible!

Its so thoughtful and helpful of you to include so much information, and the photos of the 7 point and 12 point eternities is very helpful for anyone wondering how the sizes compare.

Enjoy all your lovely new jewellery!

Thanks for sharing.
