    I just received my ring and it is spectacular! The crisp, sparkling, blinding ACA is insane and I’m a bit in shock that the ring is finally on my finger!

    Thank you so much to everyone at Whiteflash, especially to Brittany who patiently worked with me - answering my questions and psychotic deliberations - for over A YEAR! It’s a pleasure to work with professional, respectful and lovely folks. Nothing but love for Whiteflash!

    Thank you Pricescopers for helping me find my stone - @SimoneDi @mrs-b @diamondseeker2006 @ac117 @MissGotRocks and so many others who took the time to share their wisdom and diamond expertise - you know who you are!

    Here are some quick snaps for now. I’ll try to take better pictures later. My phone can’t capture the crazy crisp flashes of rainbow light but this thing is BLINDING!

    I can’t believe I finally got my ring lol!

    Wow, those pics are really blurry! They look like they were taken on a flip phone from the ‘90s. I’ll share modern day photographs shortly!

    Thank you so much! I couldn’t have done it without your help. I still remember the 2.7 J SI1 from Blue Nile I was thisclose to getting last year, remember? Let’s not forget the 2.24 H VS2 price match on Enchanted Diamonds! :lol:

    I’m on a plane and I hid it from the sunlight as the stone was literally throwing flashes of light on the passengers’ seat trays and ceiling! Can’t wait to take pictures with her rose gold wedding band family!

    Thank you @Klb088! It’s a simple 14k rose gold solitaire setting from Blue Nile. Whiteflash zhoozhed it up with their platinum Elegant head 6 prong setting and finished it off with sexy claw prongs.

    This is STUNNING! What a gorgeous ring!

    Can you share your finger size? And also - I am particularly fond of your wedding ring - can you tell us a little about it?! They look fabulous together!

    Congratulations - it's a stone cold beauty!

    So honored to have the PS community welcome the new ring on the block!

    @SimoneDi, here she is paired with the Metro. I’m actually expecting a Zina band so I can compare the two micropaves side by side!

    55BD2319-7F3E-4619-870D-7BF5E7AFA04E.jpeg

    @mrs-b Thank you! I’m a 4.75 and the ring is a 5. The shank is thin (1.8-1.9mm) so it feels looser than a 3mm band would.
    130C67D9-9791-4A70-ABCA-0ACE54EBBF26.jpeg

    The plain ring is a 18k pink gold Cartier band. I think it looks best with the solitaire. :)

    Here is my little rose gold family!

    L to R:

    1895 Cartier wedding band in 18k pink gold, 2.5 mm

    2.385 I SI1 ACA in Blue Nile petite solitaire 14k rose gold shank

    18k rose gold Tiffany Metro (1.4-1.5mm) .2ctw eternity band

    .5 ctw Blue Nile 14k rose gold half eternity band

    CB18D532-D260-47CD-8C3F-895730023074.jpeg

    I just want to add that WF simply did not slap a head on my shank. I requested to have the ring set high with the culet exposed if possible so I could clean the ring easily. After setting the stone in their platinum 6 prong Elegant head, WF added a beautiful hole to expose the culet! They pretty much improved upon and elevated the original shank because it did NOT have this beautiful donut before!

    P.S. Photos were lightened because pics were taken in a dark room.

    DH and I didn’t even have a ring when we got engaged. But if he were to ask again with this, “Yes, I will marry you!” :lol-2:

    The ACA, new setting head, and height are perfect! I've followed your upgrade journey and this is definitely worth the wait! :love::love::love:

    Thank you, CareBear! I remember all your help from the start - deliberating between that Blue Nile 2.24 H VS2 and 2.5 I VS2!

    The ACA, prongs, ring height and so many elements of the ring are a cumulation of many PSers’ rings. Thank you all for the inspiration!

    I’m still in disbelief that I finally did it! :eek2:

    I love the bands but I really love the plain one! The diamond looks beautiful and it is huge on your finger. WF outdid themselves with the setting! They reworked mine too and did a great job with it.

    Enjoy every sparkle!!

    Wow, it's perfect. I have a ring from WF coming next week so I will call you out when it comes. When I saw your pix and you were nervous about the tint I about freaked because my stone is an I color I love your setting, it's perfect, as many have said here, there is nothing like a classic solitaire and I love them. Congratulations on a beautiful ring (and rings may I add) your engagement ring is perfect and beautiful!
