    Sending a shout out to Magen and Whiteflash for all that they’ve been doing for me! They sent me chocolates for my birthday! Who does that??? Whiteflash does that! Thank you!!!

    And Good Old Gold ... David sent me a paint by sticker book with the setting I ordered because I’m a complainer and complained about being stuck at home waiting for hip replacement. Who does that??? Good Old Gold does that! Thank you!!!

    Just want to do the public thank you so that our thoughtful vendors get the credit they deserve!

    Thank you Magen and David for going above and beyond!

    Nope! I’m hoping for really soon now but have given up guessing to maintain my health, lol. But I also got flowers from Whiteflash because my daughter isn’t well ... I have never had a vendor be so thoughtful!!!

    Oh thank you for asking! After a bit of hassle with customs (I’m in Canada), I was able to pick it up on Tuesday! I haven’t got any great pictures yet .... I put the glam shots on “the two week club.” Life has been a bit too busy for me to be on the forum much lately.

    I did find the process agonizing, but Whiteflash was outstanding as always, and I am blown away by the diamond and the ring!

    When I have more time, I hope to post some more pictures and comments.

    Thank you to Magen, Bryan, Vera, and all the Whiteflash team, for putting up with me and for making it possible for me to own such a beauty ... all done “above and beyond” what is necessary from a vendor.

    I don’t want to forget David of Good Old Gold, who did such a fantastic job with the setting, also surprising me with thoughtfulness that seems so absent in today’s impersonal internet world.

    Who would think that, in the process of buying a diamond, I would find myself reassured that there are still good people in the world?

    Thanks again all! Also to the PS bunch for all the info and advice!!!

    May all your dreams come true!

    Sounds fabulous! Can't wait to see some pics @kmoro!

    Did they get pretty close to your desired specs?

    I was hoping for table size around 55 but it’s 56.4 ... however, as someone pointed out though, this really is a very small difference in table size. I am in love with it. At D VVS2, it’s not just mind-clean, it’s mind-thrilling, lol. So here’s two pictures (not great because no picture can do justice, as you know) of the gorgeous 1.716 carat ACA, no fluorescence (confirmed by cutter, WF, and me), in a Stuller floral setting with F color full-cut and H&A (on the band) melee.

    I really love it!!! :love::love::love::love:

    It looks beautiful! A D color, VVS Clarity stone is something to behold! You sound thrilled and that makes the whole thing perfect.

    Can't wait for more pictures of your gorgeous ring!

    @kmoro Wow, your diamond is absolutely dreamy and I am really loving the setting. Could you kindly share the Stuller style number? Does a wedding band sit flush? Is it white gold or platinum? Sorry....Thank you so much!

    Hi @Sandeek! I am more than happy to share with you ... I first saw the setting as posted by @icy-jade ... ironically, it seemed a bit of a temporary setting for her, but I fell in love with it. It keeps the solitaire profile, with a floral theme that has small diamonds on the edges of the flower petals. It is very light - only 2 mm shank. Stuller has many options for the melee. Stuller does not sell settings retail - you need to source through.a jeweller - I got mine through Good Old Gold before finding out that Whiteflash (my diamond vendor) could have also sourced the setting for me (oops). It was $1,300 for platinum and F colour H&A melee ...

    Item #: 121997 https://www.stuller.com/products/bu...roupId=113503&recommendationSource=SiteSearch

    Also ... I had a 7.7 mm diamond set in the 7.4 mm head ... the next size up is 8 mm head. When icy-jade posted her pic, I noticed that her 2 carat was slightly bigger than the setting was designed for ... this leads to the diamond sitting slightly higher, making the petals a bit less prominent, but leaving the floral profile around the main diamond. I loved the look of the slightly too big diamond in the setting ... a bit of a different look from the Stuller site video. I hope that makes sense. If you see the Stuller site and the sample video of setting with diamond, you will see the petals are much more dominant - this is just due to the diamond vs setting head size.

    I love the setting as a solitaire alternative. It gives just a bit more interest - bordering solitaire and halo.

    Mine is not an engagement ring ... I have ordered two matching wedding bands with alternating diamonds and coloured stones ... the wedding bands are expected to sit flush as they are indicated as matching on the Stuller site ... should arrive the first week of May ... for me, this will give a bit more thickness to the shank and give it less of a bridal look on my middle finger :lickout:

    I love that you like my setting! Thanks!

    @kmoro Thank you ever so much for sharing! Saved the link to my favorites! I agree that the way your stone is set allows the halo to be more subtle. It just peeks out! So delish. I would want to mimic that if you wouldn’t mind. Since the stone is a bit too big, does it create a profile airline gap? I would love to see your profile. You’ve been most helpful. Thank you!

    Oh :kiss2: that is just perfection! I love the lower profile and the stone is nice and snug in there! I think a call to GOG might be in order. I actually live close enough to make the drive! You’ve been so kind to help. Thank you so much! Enjoy that beautiful ring! :love:
