Chaitea:  It definitely looks like a CZ , white sapphire or white topaz. The “windowing” in the first picture is a dead give away. It’s a pretty ring though! And don’t worry about the rude comments. The whole purpose of these threads is to show off our rings! Happy Easter!

I feel like there is a difference in ring porn threads and guessing size or diamond/simulants.

i feel like is simultaneously trying to give yourself affirmation your ring is in fact large and makes you seem insecure for needing strangers to affirm that for you, and at the same time also allowing other women to compare their rings to see whether theirs is/looks as large or as small as yours.

all women like ring porn. No denying. But when you nake it a comparison rather than just lets all show off our rings it does make it seem very materialistic and a brag, which is in poor taste.

Poorly cut diamonds can window, too. It’s not always a dead giveaway of a CZ, just sayin’…there appears to be carbon spots in one of the pics, as well.

Idk, I’m wary of threads like these because so many turn out not to be diamonds. It’s like people get a cheap thrill out of fooling others with a picture/lying on the Internet. Not necessarily saying OP is doing this, but…

Not saying this ring looks like a diamond, because it doesn’t (sorry, OP), but visible culets are not a good indication that a stone isn’t a diamond. Not only do vintage OECc and OMCs show culets, but many modern diamond cuts do as well. 

I’m looking at the fine point of my vintage OEC right now. experts at Pricescope and other places verify this fact.

redpeonies:  haha, not at all! I’m in a data analysis class now and have been immersed in probability for the past week. I saw Poisson distributions on your text and for a second forgot I was on WB. See, this stuff does have real-world application! 🙂 jk.

Chaitea:  About 1.8 or 2 carats, I would say.
