Very pretty and I much prefer the lighter paler blue!

Here’s the 0.5 carat white solitaire pendant. I plan to have it set into a simple white gold setting for my engagement ring, but I’ll be waiting a week or two to see what the experts over at pricescope think of the quality first, and take it to my jeweler to compare it to some other diamonds. To me it looks gorgeous, very sparkly and white. 

My ring finger is a size 4.5 for reference.

frogplus :  very nice! Did it come with a report detailing its measurements? If it did, you can put it in the HCA calculator and see where it comes out. I confess I’d be interested to see an ASET/Idealscope of the stone.

@sunburn Unfortunately no, it doesn’t come with anything about the stone. This wasn’t a surprise though, I knew Lightbox would not be providing any of those details. I think there are some people on pricescope who have the tools to measure those things and are planning to do so. I’d really like to have the measurements of mine determined but I don’t totally know how to go about it? Are ASET and Idealscope tools that you can buy? And they provide the measurements that you need for the HCA calculator? I’m always confused when people talk about ASET and Idealscope.

mrstodd2bee :  Those are gorgeous! Take an ear shot! I’m so on the fence about these. I emailed some questions and got stock answers so I’m not in love with their customer service. But $1k for one tcw studs is very tempting!!

I might be tempted to buy the pink princess… For 800 dollars, it’s a freaking steal. And I just love the color and would love it even more if it was paler in person. It looks promising, especially since your blue seems paler in person.

Another video showing the half carat white pendant moving side to side, up and down. Forgot to post this here.

sunburn :  I would be very curious if someone were to send it to IGI just to see what we are working with here!

mrstodd2bee :  The issue with GIA is they dont assign exact color or clarity grading for lab diamonds. They will just say “near-colorless” which isnt very specific. The IGI is the better option for lab diamonds.
