    My beautiful ACA ring met its tragic demise when it fell into a blender and I inadvertently made the world’s most expensive smoothie. I was in shock and the only saving grace was that the stone was insured for the exact amount I paid.

    It is an understatement to say that Whiteflash took care of me. They took a jewelry nightmare and transformed it into a happy ending. Brittany (my ride-or-die/true blue/peanut butter to my jelly lady through this crazy diamond journey), Vera, Liza, Bryan, Leon, Kate, Marcela, Alicia and the rest of the Whiteflash Team who work long hours to make clients’ dreams come true: THANK YOU. Thank you for your professionalism, honesty, decency, positivity, efficiency, and downright awesomeness. It is truly a pleasure doing business with your amazing company.

    Marcus Lemonis from The Profit says that a successful business is based on its People, Process and Product. After owning 4 ACA’s now, I can confidently say that Whiteflash has mastered the art of teamwork, customer service, and production of some of the world’s most beautiful diamonds. You wonderful Texans have a customer for life who will always recommend you as a cut above the rest. ;-)

    Anyone care to see pics of the new bauble?

    I'm so sorry you had to go through this... I cannot even imagine. But you have a gorgeous beauty once again on your hand. This is why I don't have a blender!!!

    My goodness! I've heard of garbage disposal disasters, but this is the first time I've heard of a diamond in a blender! I am really curious about the condition of the diamond after coming out of that!

    Your new diamond and ring are crazy gorgeous!!! :love: So happy you had good insurance and could get another ring you love! Whiteflash really is outstanding in every way!

    Thank you, @headlight and @diamondseeker2006! I was in such shock that I couldn’t even share the story until the situation was resolved.

    Super grateful for my husband who generously covered the out of pocket replacement costs that allowed me to get a 2.9 ACA. I had several replacement options from which to choose and knew that this 2.9 K VS2 had my name on it with its chunky arrows and awesome spread. Whiteflash even sent me a K color ACA for inspection before I made my final decision and agreed that this stone stood out from the pack. So to any folks out there who are interested in lower colors, know that you can absolutely rock a well cut ~3 carat K stone AND set it in white metal. I followed my gut and think it’s beautiful.

    Thank you! I think I can take better pictures in the daytime.

    The top ring is my 9mm cubic zirconia “3 carat” fantasy ring. The bottom is the real thing, baby! :love:

    What an absolute trauma that must have been :-o

    Your new ring is stunning & here's hoping it's tight enough on your finger to stay put!

    Lol thanks, @Alex T. It was truly a freak accident as I don’t even recall wearing my ring that day. To think my toddler was thisclose to drinking the smoothie - shards and all - had I not decided to wash the pitcher right away and discovered the metal. I don’t even want to think about what would have happened.

    Life is full of close calls! Just grateful everything worked out in the end!

    The huge stone, tiny table and massive arrows! :love: I'm sorry about your previous stone but your new one is wonderful! You must have diamonds stars coming out of your eyes at it! And to be so close to 3 carats without having the premium... Congratulations!

    Now that is a story for the ages! My goodness - I can only try to imagine how you must felt!

    Very happy for you though that you were able to replace with an even larger stone! WF does rock the rocks, don't they?!!

    We need tons more pictures - I love happy endings and this one just made my morning!!

    Completely stunning. This looks amazing on your hand; as I recall, you're a 4.75 finger size, @TweetyBird23? I covet your gorgeous hands!!

    This ring is truly something special! Glad you got to go through this process with WhiteFlash, who *really* know how to smooth out the bumps! Congratulations - seriously AWESOME!

    I winced when I read a blender :eek2: How on earth did that happen?! Holy crap!
    But on an awesome note, your ring is just absolutely divine! Perfection! My FDIL has an ACA. I think I may need to jump on this bandwagon!
    Enjoy that beauty :clap:

    WOW!! Your heart must have dropped into your belly when this happened! I'm so glad everything worked out. And in a BIG way! That honker is fiery, blinding, *and* looks way bigger than 2.9. I would've guessed 4 or even 5 carats based on that first handshot! And I adore the flowy prongs! Congratulations!!

    I can’t believe your stone is a K! Do you see a tint in certain lighting? I also love the tab prongs on this setting! Can you tell me which setting this one is?

    Thank you so much for all the PS love! I am enjoying her so much! Here are some pictures in different “normal” lighting conditions.

    First pic was when I woke up. Things are still blurry but I was thrilled to see her on my finger!

    Thank you, @mrs-b! I am so happy to hear the good news about your health! :razz:

    Whiteflash sure knows how to smooth out the bumps, don’t they? They are like the Spanx of bling! :lol:

    The ring is a size 4.5.

    Hi @Crazie4Cuts, the ring is a hybrid of my white gold knife edge shank and Whiteflash’s six prong Elegant head setting with tabbed prongs. I love the swoopy head!

    I do see tint/warmth from the side but it doesn’t bother me enough to exchange for a smaller, whiter diamond. I’m thrilled with how white it appears face up and I love the size too much! :twisted: To my eyes, the white gold and platinum also help make the ring as a whole appear white.

    I was praying the ring wouldn’t be a hot tinted mess when I received it and was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw this!

    @TweetyBird23 I am so sorry for your unfortunate blender experience but yay for good insurance policies and willing husbands! Your new ring/diamond is absolutely stunning and it looks humongous on your small finger! :love: Please keep it away from the kitchen! :D

    Lol, @SimoneDi! Thank you! Yes, Mr. Tweety deserves some major credit! If you can solder e-rings and wedding rings together, do you think WF can solder the ring on my hand? :lol:
