    I think the stone itself is wonderful – the warmth is great and flatters your skin tone. If it were for me personally I would want it in a rose gold or yellow gold setting with similar colored melee. The contrast with the white (platinum?) band and colorless stones throws me off. You asked for our opinions, but go with your heart!

    @missoptimism:  This! I would go with a setting that balances the color of the stone.

    Definitely a “no” for me – I couldn’t do M color. I would be concerned people would wonder if it was a simulant with low color. I’m also color sensitive in general and a lower color stone is not my preference.

    However, if you love it who cares what I think? The size is gorgeous!

    It’s not my taste – I  prefer more colorless stones – but if you love it, that’s all that matters.

    I love the warmth.  Don’t allow people to make it seem like a lower color diamond is a Lower QUALITY. color is a preference.

    @princessshay:  Are you sure that’s not a moissanite? The flat table, faceting, and the way colors are being refracted makes me wonder. Is the stone certified? Maybe you should have it tested…I would hate to see someone get ripped off by a supposed family friend!

    @SomedayHisBride:  simulants tend to show less color, not more. Unless you’re specifically talking moissanite.

    @princessshay:  I think it looks great for an M, and you could easily have the melee in whatever setting you choose be lower so there isn’t such a contrast if you find it bothers you.

    @princessshay:  ah, good. 🙂 I’m definitely no expert but I just wanted to throw it out there. Congrats on the diamond, it looks amazingly clear and sparkly – and big!

    @princessshay:  the ring from the side looks like it is floating in air…do you like that? I have a round center stone and the “cone” part fills up the prong area until the “cone tip” disappears into the halo.

    @princessshay:  Well, it’s still suspicious because you just posted about moissanite 2 days ago, which is typically warmer, like an M in color, yet flawless.  Also, jewelers don’t typically show people diamonds “under a microscope.”  You aren’t trained so you would have no idea what you were looking for.

    @SomedayHisBride:  I would hope the table is flat, that’s what the table is; the flat part on top.
