I found PS randomly through a google search a few months ago and I''ve been lurking ever since, absorbing all sorts of knowledge (who knew there was SO much to know about diamonds!? I''m now totally addicted to this site...)

We chose the ring after our engagement, so I spent some time researching on PS before deciding to go with Whiteflash. They custom made the X-prong setting since I wanted a thinner shank than what''s normally offered, and I''m THRILLED with how it turned out. And as for the stone, it just sparkles like mad!



I''ve had the ring about 6 weeks, and finally managed to get a few good pics, so I thought I''d post a few...

And of course, the specs:

. Shape: A Cut Above H&A
. Carat: 0.798
. Depth %: 60.9
. Table %: 55.3
. Crown Angle: 34.5
. Crown %: 15.4
. Star : 52.9
. Pavilion Angle: 40.7
. Pavilion %: 42.9
. Lower Girdle %: 78.9
. Girdle: Thin Faceted
. Measurements: 6.01-6.03X3.67
. Light Performance: 0
. Polish: Ideal
. Symmetry: Ideal
. Culet: Pointed
. Fluorescence: Negligible

If you don''t mind me asking, what''s your ring size? I would like a similar size stone except I''m getting a halo. I''m trying to figure out how large I can go before it looks ridiculous on my hand. I tried a full carat with a halo once (Ritani) and thought it was way too large. I''m all about proportions. I decided on a .75 at the time, but have since decided on a .80 and have now considered a .90. I tried a few on today and the .90 still looked insanely large so I''m thinking I should drop back down to a .80, but I need some visual perspective. That stone looks large on you!

(geez that was long winded lol)

Trust me, MW, you need to make allowance for the dreaded DSS! Go with the .90! DEFINITELY the .90!


And Chickpea... GORGEOUS diamond, beautiful ring! Congrats!

Haha, that''s what the guy in the store said! I kept saying, "oh it looks too big doesn''t it" and he was like, after about a week it will shrink, don''t worry.

congrats chickpea - such a pretty ring - love the 3rd pic with the big sparkle

i knooow - this site is v. addictive. what is even worse {kidding of course!} is that PS is full service - pre-engagement, engagement, wedding, and then life afterwards! amazing!

Thanks everyone for your kind words and compliments!

Moonwater, my ring is size 4.75 (though now with the colder weather somtimes I think I should have gotten a 4.5 instead...)
.8 is a nice size (of course, I''m biased
). I''ve wondered what a halo would like like with this size stone - if you get one, I''d love to see pics!

Early on, I tried on a lucida at tiffany and found that while I liked the x-prong style, the wider band didn''t appeal (on my hand). Given my smallish finger size and the size of the stone we were getting, I didn''t want the shank to overwhelm. WF made this setting 2.7 mm at the top with a slight taper down, and I think it compliments the stone nicely!

That has to be my favorite X-prong.
I''ve always liked this setting, but refrained from chosing it because I thought it looked somewhat bulky... I was afraid my .50ct stone would get lost in it and that it would look too heavy on my 4.5 finger. But this one is perfect! Congrats!

Thanks, everyone! I couldn''t be happier


Anchor, that''s exactly how I felt. I was a little nervous about committing to a setting I couldn''t see in person first, but WF did a great job of addressing all our concerns and translating our ideas into the finished ring. It''s just what we wanted

I wear a size 6 but plan to get a size 6.25 so I can have wiggle room (just in case of pregancy). I will definitely posts pics. Unfortunately I don''t know when I''m getting it!
Sometime next year tho!

thanks, snlee! i''ve been thinking about what sort of w-band might go well with my ring, and have really been admiring your set!
i love the look of a shared-prong eternity but my only hesitation is the durability factor...
