For those of you who know the 'story', I am still waiting to hear from the BGD; they promise to ship the right five stone (SALLY) to me no later than tomorrow, but haven't heard from them these days and am getting a little impatient. Since I don't have time to upload my real five-stone after/if it arrives on Saturday, I'm posting the Nightingale (beautiful-looking, but not what I ordered; they say the stones were indeed the ones that I ordered .....)
Wedding sets first. I admit that i changed my mind a couple of times about the band (and the e-ring too); e-ring from WF, 1.5 carat, ACA, H, VS2; band from Tiffany (milgrain); I got this band mainly because fiance picked a Tiffany milgrain for himself (and I think I need a plain metal band that could go with both the princess-cut and the five stone).
Enough said......

There are clear arrows in all of them when photos are taken (but am just uploading one of them); they are great stones indeed

I thought there was an f color among the five (based on the reports that they sent me) but then Leslie said all of them were Hs, as I ordered; a report was misplaced....

I wonder how an F would look different.

Thank you! I haven't taken a photo of the five stone together with the plain band (when the NIGHTINGALE was here, the Tiffany band was sent to be engraved); I hope they two would look good together :lol:

They are all H, SI1; 0.30 -0.31 carat, all BGD signature AGS 000s; it's actually a good deal because I grabbed them just before the price reported went up (although I don't know to what extent the price increased for 0.3 carats). Such color, clarity and carat combination is really sufficient for me.

What is your ring size? Great finger coverage on the 5-stone! (Even if it isn't the right setting...)

I'm size 5. I got a lot of help by going through threads here to determine what carats i should go for; five 0.3 carats would work well for slightly bigger hands (like 6?) too.

Beautiful wedding set and I love the five stone even if it is not the one you ordered. I will look forward to pics of your Sally.

Wow, the five stone, even if it isn't the correct setting, is simply beautiful!! I can't wait to see those gorgeous stones in the Sally! Pics please!

If I may ask, what's the width of your milgrain wedding band?

Oh, and you have lovely hands, btw!

hi BoulderGal, my finger size's 5 and the milgrain is 2mm (I think the thinnest in Tiffany);
We'll be able to get SALLY this evening, but they told me yesterday that they don't have pink sapphires in stock (should have told me earlier :(( ); having that would take another week or two, and since I am going away in a couple of days, I just opted for having diamond melee on the bezel instead. They did say I could exchange them back to sapphires in future.

Gee, now I am unhappy~
We got the ring this noon, but it has scratches (or whatever they are) on the metal/setting. I had asked Brian for a verification letter but it was not included (he did say it was normally not included but they could do that if I request; I wouldn't mind not having it if he had said it simply couldn't be done); there seems to be no communication between Brian and the others after I got off the phone the other day.
Not to mention that there were still no sapphires, although I know diamond melee is more expensive.
i just sent pictures of the 'scratches' to them. Not sure if those were serious (or how they got on there). When we came back from the Fedex, I wasn't in a terribly good mood .......

The knife edge is very comfortable; that's good, but I am starting to think about other options now.
