Thankyou to everyone who gave me advice during my search for diamonds - and to all the other posters here....as I''ve been looking and lurking for a while now and have tried to absorb as much of the good advice as I could....
After my partner and I deciding on 2ct as being the magical number (a ct for both of the hearts involved in this adventure) we looked at quite a number of stones, some more beautiful than others, some way out of our budget - which seemed to be expanding faster than I could vainly bat my lashes at my boy - and all sending us both a little crazy with comparisons.
Well...we found it...and it''s just absolutely beautiful...
I was happy to sacrafice some quality for more ''bling'', but it''s just so lovely I don''t feel like I''ve had to comprimise too much at all....
here are the specs
2.12ct Round Brilliant
Meas 8.31 - 8.35 x 5.03mm
D SI1 - eye clean
Crown angle 34.0''
Crown Hght 14.5%

Flourescence - Faint
I''m a bit of a nana when it comes to photography, but I''ll try and post some pics if I can when it arrives....
Thanks to all again for your help....even if you haven''t realised you were...
