@Supersleuth:  Agreed! 😀 my ring is a 0.5 tcw and has some pretty serious sparkle in some lights

I think sparkle is the most important thing in a diamond. While I’m starting to think that I would love a bigger rock I would never choose size over sparkle. I’d rather something small and sparkly than big and dull. I LOVE sparkle!

@Supersleuth:  For me, sparkle is everything! 😀 My ring is something like 0.2 tcw but the little diamonds sparkle like crazy in the right light or with the right flash setting 😉

@londonchick:  its 18K yellow gold, but it looks a bit orange in that pic (blue desk top and camera phone combo)  Prongs are white gold

Small sparkle (1st ring post) Hopefully the picture is not huge (might distort the size of the diamond 😉 )

Sparkle is definitely most important!  A dull, dark diamond is never pretty.  I used the Holloway Cut Advisor calculator when selecting my diamond.  My diamond received a very good cut, but when I typed in the measurements and ratios of diamond into the HCA everything came out with an excellent rating including light return, fire and scintillation (spread was rated very good, which means it did not have as large a spread as a typical diamond of its size).  Because of the excellent light play ratings this diamond received I pulled the trigger and bought this diamond.  I love it so much!

This! Sparkle is what made me choose my wedding band, not color, clarity or whatever else I was supposed to be concerned about, lol!!

It reminded me of sunlight on freshly fallen snow!!
