typicalanna :  That is so wonderful your jeweler will do that for your band. I LOVE comfort fit bands I have always had either a knife edge or a bulky setting, but for the past several years I have had a very basic knife edge solitaire and I tried on a big ole 2+ carat round at a jewelry store while on vacation and it was still a 2mm, but it was a really sleek comfort fit setting and I loved it. It was so comfortable! I am so excited for you. You will have such a beautiful set I just cant get over it. I know I am being a bit annoying with the whole picture requesting, but only if you want to… will you post a few more pics when you get a chance I would love to see like a far away shot, a could of side pics and an outdoor sun shot!!! Does not have to be immediately, or ever if you don’t want to at all I totally understand. I just love your ring so much. Your diamond does remind me of mine too even though yours is bigger. So beautiful.

delphinia :  oh yes I love your ring. Is yours the one you had designed to resemble your first ring or something to that effect? if not you have a ring twin. Either way, your ring is gorgeous! I love the design is it custom? It is very stunning. How long have you had it? I love it. So much finger coverage and very unique!

typicalanna :  I love your diamond, She is like the big sister to my diamond LOL. I love the setting! It looks comfortable, you said it is right. You know I had my jeweler set mine kind of high and I have yet to catch it on much. I have gently whacked it a couple of times, but that is to be expected. But as far as it catching on everything. not so much. I was pleasantly surprised. I have been contemplating a lot about adding a halo to mine. What do you think about that? Ahhh I love how pears look outside. thank you for obliging my picture obsession LOL

tbenjamin4884 :  thank you, thank you lovely! 😘 I’m so happy with her! I usually think solitaires look boring on my hand because I hate my hands lol but I was shocked how much I just love the simplicity and I think a halo was just too much for the diamond. I hope it stays clean for a bit lol I love that shiny and new just cleaned look of diamonds and a gold.πŸ˜‚ I don’t have the greatest lighting in my house but as requested I did take a few more pics πŸ€—

EmeleeRose :  I LOVE HER!!!!!!!  OMGOSH. And yes, she is anything but boring right! I know what you mean about solitaires, but she is so stunning and definitely doesn’t need any help standing out. I am so in love with her. Ok so I need the specs again. Is it me or the lighting, but does she almost look like a fancy gray? Which I LOVE LOVE LOVE, so absolutely no “diss” intended. Some bees will get very offended if questioned about color or clarity or any of the C’s and I can totally see why. but please know 1) I happen to like warmth so you’re in great company with me, 2) I am really loving fancy colors lately so I might be looking for or seeing something based off of my obsession lately (fancy grays) Like my last diamond was graded as an “M”, but it had brown undertones and could almost be a very light champagne where as you know Champagnes have an entirely different grading for color. So for simplicity my jeweler would say it was an M, but some would argue it was like a C1, but like your jeweler being amazing, mine is too I trust him so much and we have a very casual relationship I trust him and I dont get hung up on the super crazy details I trust what he says about a stone and in turn he gives me really great deals for beautiful stones. Of course if I were to drop really big bucks I would be very interested in the details and going through things with a fine toothed comb, but that isnt how I do (or am able to do) business with him. In my price range (which is very very low in his store I am sure lol) he will tell me what he has I will see it, he will give me the details and if I like it on my finger I go with it, I don’t care if its an I1 if it looks good to ME and he can hide an inclusion with a prong and pass on a great deal to me, then I am happy. So please don’t ever think anything I ever say about anyone’s stones is offensive. I just don’t see a ton of “yellow” which is typically what we associate with anything other than a I/J and below. J,K,L,M etc in my mind are always yellow tones, but that inst always true they can be pinky/brown, or champagney like my last stone or grayish which I LOVE and almost see in yours, but again I could be way wrong. I feel like when I first saw your stone I saw a buttery warm tone, but now that it is set, I love it even more! Tell me what you think. <3

tbenjamin4884 :  thank you! Omg I love fancy grey diamonds, I want one so bad haha! I have a light champagne C2 1.04 carat diamond set into a pendant. Love darker champagne diamonds too omg Lorraine Schwartz lol. No way would you offend me!!!!! She does look a little steely in some pictures I agree but I think it’s because I have grey walls lounge floors lol lots of grey in my house in different tonesπŸ˜† and I really suck taking pictures which doesn’t help! She is a 4.16 carat L colour VS1. She looks warm in some lights and creamy white in others. The first picture I took was with a flash and she shows warmth against my grey bed spread, again with the grey, I love grey tones obviously 😜 she has been graded very harshly by a gemologist friend of mine and sometimes I think it cannot be an L but then I see her buttery warmth and agree with her grading. Thank you so much for your lovely compliments!!! I’ve always hated my hands and I think that’s why I have always been drawn to big rocks because even my 2.6 carat looks small on me which is crazy thinking I know but I can’t help it! I think it’s because I don’t have a lot of room for stacking which is really really unfair! I used to stack my ering and 2 wedding bands but after having my 3rd child my fingers expanded haha and no more stacking, sorry old pandora rings 😒. I absolutely love your beauty it’s so white and crisp and just gorgeous!!!!

EmeleeRose :  She is so beautiful! I love gray too! Such a versatile and sleek color, on walls, on floors, on cabinets… in diamonds lol. I wonder what she would look like set in yellow gold. I know to many it might not make a difference, but I think it can make it look like a completely different ring!!!!! My jeweler grades harder than the GIA for sure. I have had two I1 diamonds from him and to be honest they were super eye clean. Hes a master designer and a brilliant gemologist. I feel so lucky to have him. Anyway, back to you, first of all I think we might be hand twins. I have HUGE hands my hands are almost as big as my husbands. It wasn’t until I joined the bee and got to stare at so many other womens hands, that I realized that I have relatively short fingers but HUGE palms. Yes I have short fingers, but they’re large fingers lol. My ring finger is a size 7 but for a few years of constant wear, of a very very wide ring, I could swear it is still slightly “stretched” and “waist trained” so to speak so I truly think my finger could even have the potential to be bigger lol. How big is you ring finger? Although our actual finger/hand shape is similar, you have much prettier skin and nails!!! My nails are so freaking brittle. I am no dainty flower and after two kids you can imagine my feet and my hands suffered a bit from the pregnancies, but not nearly as much as my stomach and ass LOL. Anyway, I love that side view!!! I see those rainbows! I still want more pics as time goes on, dare I say some outdoor shots? please :-). Thank you for the compliments on my beauty. I love her so much. I am no stranger to “colored” diamonds I love warmth. The only diamond I have ever had “in my life” that has just the perfect amount of color AND fire is my moms J. She has the most beautiful J colored, in fact it might even be a K now that I think about it, i will have to ask her now, diamond that literally sparkles like you would not believe. Not to say diamonds with color don’t sparkle as much in fact I think the fire that is produced from diamonds with color is more appealing that an ice white diamond that flashes only white fire. My pear although very sparkly and fiery I do which it had maybe a smidgen of color for that deep dark flashes of purple and blues and reds and orange. You know. But my moms is stunning. We had gone to Disneyland last year and we were on a shuttle back to the hotel We were sitting next to each other but the isle was in between us. and she was back one seat from me. Anyway we were sooo tired and exhausted the kids had already passed out as soon as they hit the seat and I was borderline delirious and I kept seeing this flashing out of the corner of my eye and those shuttles are quite bright and bouncy I just didn’t think much of it, but then I looked back to talk to my mom who at that moment was looking out the window, I gasped, and my mom swiftly looked at me concerned, I said look at your ring. She looked down and gasped. We literally were in shock. Her ring looked like a disco ball. I am not exaggerating. I mean it was sparkling non stop every bounce every slight movement of her hand. it was insane. Have you ever watched Good Old Gold on YouTube where he will do tutorials on diamond comparisons? Well he will compare the diamonds under different lighting and I think its the spotlighting and the diamonds will go insane and I always think to myself hmmm I have never had or seen a diamond in real life sparkle like that! Now he typically only has very nice diamonds so the light return and cut and clarity etc is usually on the superior end, but I always thought wow, I wonder what its like to have a diamond like that, well…. I now know WELL I personally don’t know lol but my mom sure does. I will never forget that day with her diamond don’t get me wrong it is normally extremely sparkly, but nothing like that day on the shuttle with those spot lights above us! It was special. I truly think her J color had/has a lot to do with the fire. I can see your diamond in the pic (in the second set of pics, the 2 pic down so the 3rd pic down out of the total pics) I can see that your diamond has fire. And that side view flashes those rainbows and I can see it in the first pic you posted too! Does she have some fluorescence? I am curious to know. Did you see my post about Phosphorescent diamonds? Be sure to check yours. πŸ™‚

tbenjamin4884 :  I love grey diamonds too omg lol. I honestly think it’s the white gold setting making her look more steely looking. I have a fancy light yellow ECdismond that I had my jeweller set in a white gold double halo. I was floored by my jewellers work and the ring is amazing!! But my centre FLY doesn’t look yellow anymore lol. Got my pear I should have set her in a yellow gold cup to enhance the warmth but my jeweller said it would be too bulky for just a solitaire and I think he was correct. Have you seen KKjohnsons ring WOW it looks like a fancy yellow diamond with the yellow gold cup. And if I was going with a 3 stone I would have for sure had one lol. I was tossing up between rose gold and white and ultimately chose the white as I thought I might get over the rose gold, most of my jewellery is white gold. My fingers are a 7 to 8, used to be a  6 and once upon a time when I was skinny I was a 4 lol, then kids and pow sausages haha πŸ˜‚  it’s no joke I really hate my hands! My nails are very weak also and I usually have to keep them short or they just rip. Haha I’m with you sister, my stomach and butt are pretty shocking lol πŸ˜‚ wish I could slim down but I just love my chocolate too much, quickly hides chocolate wrappers. 😜 your hands are lovely and that pink polish against your skin tone and your sparkly beauty is the bomb!!!! πŸ€— oh your mums ring sounds gorgeous, lucky lady!! I’d love some pictures if you can? I will take more pics of mine definitely! I have never watched good old gold on YouTube, but I’m going to now.  No fluorescence but I saw your post and I must watch that video sounds very very cool! My fancy yellow heart has medium from memory and I must try that with it. I took this picture with a flash and thought it was so cool. And you can see a tiny amount of warmth, my skin looks yellow but in real life I’m very pale with no warmth. I swear it’s my phone camera telling tales lol πŸ˜‚
