I was going to wait until I actually had the ring in my hand to come out of ''lurker'' status but I just can''t wait, I''m too excitied!

Below is my brand new 0.808 F SI1 ACA, currently in the custody of UK customs but should be delivered tomorrow
. Soooooooo excitied, I know 0.80 is small by PS standards but it''s big to me and I''m going from a 0.60 (GIA Ex but pre-PS and there is definately some leakage going on) so I''m really hoping to notice a difference - both is size and cut quality.

The setting had a bit of a journey as I ordered in the UK (I wanted to keep the same setting) but US customs decided to hold on to it for nearly 2 weeks with no explanation - I really thought it had been lost
Never mind, all''s well that ends well and it looks like Leon has done a great job setting the stone.

Anyway, some quick stats then the pics:
0.808 F SI1
AGS 000
5.97-6.00 x 3.67
Depth 61.2%
Table 56.9%
Crown 34.8
Pavillion 40.6 (hoping this won''t be too dark)
HCA 0.8

and finally.................................

Thank you guys - everyone here is so lovely (feeling very loved right now)!!

There are some truely spectacular rings on this site but I still have a soft spot for simplicity. Thanks for your comment on the setting whitby :) I was really suprised how chunky the prongs look in these photos and a little nervous about putting the photo up when everyone else''s settings always look so elegant. That said, they really don''t look like that in person and for someone who was torn between the square shape of a princess cut and the sparkle of a RB, this setting was perfect.

Fedex have confirmed it will be out for delivery tomorrow so will be bringing the camera to work (and blocking out the diary
)

Watch this space!

Sparkleaddict, your ring is beautiful! I love the sleekness and simplicity, and I think you definitely got the best of both worlds as far as being torn between a princess or RB! Great choice, congrats!

I love that excited feeling when you know your package is coming the next day! You will love your ring! ACA diamonds are beautiful! At least customs aren''t holding your package hostage. I have had that happen to me before!

I was actually just going to make a comment on how I really like the prongs because they seem to be very in unison with the rest of the setting and it just all looks right together. Beautiful ring! Congratulations!

Please don''t worry - and no need to fear a 40.6 pav angle with an excellently cut diamond and a good crown angle, some overemphasize obstruction where there is really no need - your diamond is gorgeous!!!

Wow! It''s just beautiful!!! I love that it is still a plain solitaire, but has some detail to it. Love it!

Thanks Lorelei, that''s really reassuring. I think I''ve probably over-analysed every single detail buying this diamond so it''s good to get a reality check! I felt so gutted when we discovered PS after we''d bought my first diamond, the more I learned the more I realised we could have done so much better. Never mind, at least it was quite a small stone and it''s certainly not a train wreck so it will be in search of a friend for a pair of studs later this year


Thank you again for all the wonderful comments, I''m especially pleased everyone likes the setting - I just want it in my paws now!!!!!!!

Oh and Maisie - WOW! I''ve just seen yours, the girl done good! Also nice to identify a fellow Brit
