How exciting!! The crown looks pretty steep, is this the 1.7ct you mentioned in your last post? It looks like it holds a lot of its weight above the girdle BUT the diamond looks bigger on your finger in this photo and I’m sure it’s stunning in person! Any ideas on the setting yet? 🙂

@newbeegirl: I noticed that as well. Crown looks very steep for a modern round brilliant.  Might face up smaller than a well cut 1.7ct diamond and could have performance issues as a result of being cut too deep.  Also, not sure if its dirty, but in the face up photo it appears cloudy, milky and/or included. 

OP, do you have a copy of the lab report?  Were you able to view the diamond in various lighting besides jewelry store lighting (which is designed to make even poorly cut and heavily included diamonds look good)?  I understand how thrilling it is to shop for diamonds, especially for your engagement ring.  But a 1.7ct diamond is quite a financial investment and oftentimes emotions take over (which jewelers rely on).  Its not uncommon for buyers to have regrets after noticing how their diamonds perform in IRL, outside the jewelry store.   A bit of research beyond the “4Cs” will go a long way in getting a diamond that out-performs most others on the market (brighter, more sparkle, crisp, eye catching, etc.).  Not to be a buzzkill (there are certainly plenty of people rocking diamonds without doing much of any research that adore them with no regrets), but you are in the position now to make a more educated purchase.  If you feel you’ve done enough research and are happy with your decision, then ignore my advice.  Congratulations on your upcoming engagement! Best of luck to you both.

Congrats, bee!! I actually really love that puffier crown! 😍 The profile is beautiful — reminds me of an OEC. Wish mine were a bit puffier!

It is beautiful! Congratulations and I can’t wait to see how you set it! I am having my diamond reset…it’s at the jeweler now and should be ready in a couple more days! Here’s a pic of my current ering, new pink diamond rose gold band, and new rose gold diamond halo setting:
