Well, my boyfriend did I should say


After 3 years together and over a year of casually looking at engagement rings, it''s finally happening!!

He purchased this stone http://www.whiteflash.com/round/Round-cut-diamond-23765.htm# from Whiteflash. I posted about it yesterday and a few people were a little indifferent to it but WF has assured me it is a gorgeous stone. Also it''s eye clean from 8 or 25 cm or from the side. The ideal scope isn''t the best but I was directed to a better looking ideal scope on another stone and assured that the 2 stones perform the same. Although I have to admit that actually making the purchase has had me second guessing myself but I''m confident in WF''s opinion of this stone.

The setting will be from Signed Pieces...this wedding band http://www.thefacetscollection.com/item.cfm?item_id=4000 and they will do the matching engagment ring. I''m still worried about having 2 shared prong settings but they have assured me that only the metal will touch. I guess I''ll just have to see for myself.

A big thanks to everyone on this board for all of your help!! We couldn''t have done it without you!!

Murr, you may want to start a separate thread noting that it''s an insurance question in the title becuase there are several experts on here who know a lot about insurance but they might not see the inquiry in this thread that you''ve already got going.

All that counts is that the diamond is beautiful, which it sounds like it is. I, too, own a diamond with less than perfect specs which was picked out for me by a very picky gemologist and it is gorgeous.

Enjoy, and send pics!!!

BTW - I love the crisp F-ness of my stone. You got a colorless diamond too, which is very cool!

Lorelei--yes we did change our mind...we ended up going with a .735 ACA stone from WF. I just wasn''t mentally comfortable with this stone after it scored a 3.8 on the HCA. I have another thread with the info...I think it''s something like "bad HCA score...what should I do?" I''ll bump it up for you.
