Amazing. Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary. What an amazing way to celebrate. I sense that this may be the jewel of the week.
Thank you @Girlfriday17 (so makes me think about the Cary Grant movie). You're so sweet. There are some amazing jewels this week :kiss2:, so I think it could be any of us. It is so nice to see a bunch pop up all at once. Reminds me of the old days... =)2

Beautiful! So timeless and so worthy of milestone celebrations! Enjoy and hope these sparkliest bring you many moments of pure joy!
Thank you @idealw2boys . I am enjoying the random moments of glancing at my finger.

What a gorgeous piece of art! :kiss2: SK does such beautiful work and your trellis is a great example! And those diamonds....blinding!! Happy fabulous 50th, especially with this new bauble to grace your finger!
Thank you @ac117 . Thank you for reminding me 50 can be fabulous. =)2

O.M.G, @LLJsmom. I am speechlessly so in LOVE!!! Congrats! 7 weeks was well worth the wait, I say! ❤️❤️❤️
Hi @Dmndsr4evr11 . Thank you so much. You're right. It was worth the wait. =)2

Hi @CareBear , Thank you so much. It is really fun to stare at my finger too. I am definitely appreciating this SK setting more and more.

So here are some random thoughts about the ring and stone, if anyone is interested. Compared to my OEC, I feel like I don't need to clean this as much to keep it sparkly, likely because the facets are harder to see and more distracting to the eye. I thought the setting was a bit higher than I was used to, but I can see that the height is actually practical. I haven't worn a ring with the girdles of the diamond so exposed in a long time. I was used to the bezel around my OEC and I stacked heedlessly. The slightly higher height of the stones allows me to stack and not worry about any part of the diamond touching an adjacent ring. Right now, I'm enjoying a rolling ring with it. However, I am more careful with it, since the setting does leave so many edges of the diamond unprotected.

Some random pics in more lighting environments.

You can decide if it is “going dark” in this direct sun. This doesn’t bother me since it doesn’t look dark. But YMMV.

I'm gonna comment. I truly am. I'm just utterly lost for words.

ETA If it's any consolation, you're in good company with that response: it took me 2 weeks to get a squeak out after I saw @cflutist's Queen Pari.

I loooove this look, stacked with the Trinity. I’m so happy for you! It’s just spectacular. About going dark—I don’t see “dark” in your pic... I went to a “pub run” fun run type of gathering last weekend. We ran outside in the 0 degree weather, then met at the brewery for a beer (only three of us showed up).

I looked down at my E colored 3-stone, and it was BLACK! Rainbow flashes with the awesome lighting, but so dark! I looked up—the ceiling was painted black, hah! Little hall of mirrors. :) I don’t ever perceive my ring going so dark, unless it is reflecting a dark surface.

Thank you @Bruin Ring . I hope your search is going well. I'm looking forward to the rest of your journey. Crossing fingers for you.

Thank you as well @LLJsmom. We should be placing the final order on Monday. Just need to decide if we are going to rotate the arrows slightly so nothing is blocked by prongs, and whether or not to splurge on the matching band.

Great pictures! Love the details that you shared.

I hope it’s ok to ask... since you wear a relatively small ring size ( I think you’re under a 5 if I recall correctly??) How comfortable is it to wear with a ring and try to press your fingers together like you are carrying something? Does the shank feel like you aren’t wearing a ring at all?

Thank you @MamaBear for your very kind words. You understanding the beauty of an ACA. Hope you are enjoying your lovely.

Thank you @KristinTech . I am very surprised to know I enjoy it so much with this rolling ring too. Seems so suited to my three stone.

Gorgeous all the way! Blindingly beautiful and your center stone is sooooo icy white!!! Love it.
Thank you @Dmndsr4evr11 . I will confess to greatly enjoying her whiteness.

Great pictures! Love the details that you shared.

Thank you @idealw2boys . I am quite accustomed to wearing kinda bulky things on this ring finger. For 15 years, I wore a very dome shaped 3.5-4 mm platinum band so this whole hand is kinda desensitized. I know rings are on my finger but it doesn't bother me at all. I'm probably not the best person to ask. Even with all this stuff on my finger it does not feel bulky to me.

This. Is. Stunning.

I am so happy for you. Truly.

This is one of the most gorgeous rings I’ve ever seen.
Thank you @Tonks . That means a lot. So very kind of you. =)2

Thank you @Mkyjc369 . You're so funny. I am glad you liked the later pics. I try to add more just randomly.

Thanks you @MrsDiamondHeart . Thank you for your thoughts. It does represent so much. It's funny that it means something to me now, when an ering was just "whatever" when I first got married.

Favoloso! Also idk your age but those do not look like 25th anniversary hands! :lol:

And wow I'm not sure which ring I like better, this one or your VC. Both SO AMAZING.
@Mreader Thank you. You are so so kind to say that. I will try to remember to use lotion more often. :lol:

Bravo, it is stunningly beautiful! Congrats on the important milestones coming up as well.
Thank you @aac2013 . Yeah...milestones. They didn't seem important when I was young, but they have more significance now that I'm older.

Stunning! To me a ring is as much about the setting as the stones and this nails it. Plus, all that finger coverage. I have no idea how you manage to get any work done with all that distracting sparkle.

Thank you @Miss Marple . And I do agree with you about settings. I have learned that I am distracted (in a bad way) when the setting is not pleasing to the eye. So I can compromise on neither these days.

Thank you @SandyK. Yes I am so happy the studs are being used. It hurt to see them just sit.

Whoa! I popped into PS tonight to look around in Colored Stones - forget that! This ring is stunning. I love your story, how you just gave it up. BTDT, paralysis by over-analysis is me.
I'm blown away, beautiful ring. Congrats.

Thank you so much @JDDN :wavey: For sure. You've got to try it. It feels like it is partly yours too. I wouldn't have ended up here if you weren't there to assure me I wasn't that CRAZY for wanting an D/E. Thanks for every single thing... Please, when can covid be over...

Thank you @Ann . :lol: Yes, giving it up isn't easy or normal for me.

GORGEOUS! And I’m a big SK fan
Happy Birthday and Anniversary!!!

Happy Birthdanniversary!

Thank you @Yimmers . I'm going to steal your word. Birthdanniversary. ;)2 And surprisingly enough, I prefer it with my rolling ring to any other, for now...
