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.

Unrelated… the first thing I thought when I saw your post was “Hey! Are you in my stat class???” Lol. Also, nice ring 🙂

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.

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.

It really is gorgeous! 3.5+carats… Wow! What is the story behind the family stone? That is a very very special heirloom indeed! How cool!

thank you for your sweet comment! I was never interested in starting drama, so I just ignore it, ha! I personally enjoy looking at other rings and playing silly games and like you said, I thought that’s what the ring board was for!
and in case that’s your set in your picture, I just wanted to say its beautiful! I love rose gold!
you might have missed in my original post, but is in fact a diamond.

you might have misunderstood the reason of this post. I was curious what size people would assume when they saw it. I have always known the specs of my ring and that includes size. I know that it is a very large stone, I also know that the color is considered lower. Both of those aspects are facts. Nobody can change that with what they say or don’t say. So I wasn’t looking for affirmation. It seems like most people guessed around 2 carats which is what I had suspected. So I got my answer!
haha! I was actually teaching it! Extra credit for you for recognizing the Poisson distribution
The other poster that replied to your comment wasn’t me just FYI. good luck in your data analysis class and congrats on your engagement 🙂
thank you ladies! There isn’t a major story behind it besides the fact that Fi’s grandma was a flashy lady and actually had several similar sized rings (none of them were even bridal jewelry!) she passed them down to her children, so that’s how Fi’s mother got it.

About 1.8 or 2 carats, I would say.
