I just wanted to thank you both for all your patience, understanding, and expertise in my diamond search. I received the 1.5 G SI1 ACA on Saturday and it was like Christmas x 200. Thank you for expediting the shipping - everything went smoothly.
The stone is breathtaking, and the good folks at Matthew''''s Jewelry (Michael B.''''s studio) just about passed out when I dropped it off for the setting - you were right! I can''''t wait to surprise her this Thanksgiving and am so happy that you''''ve both made what is an admittedly scary endeavor not quite so daunting.
I''''m sure I''''ll be hunting around later for wedding bands (I''''m partial to something in rose gold, believe it or not) and I will start my search with you.
Oh! I may have inadvertantly drummed up some business for you on Pricescope - I responded to a fellow rookie who was looking at some B&M stones and I found (another) winner on Whiteflash with the same cut/clarity as my stone and urged him to at least compare. I just read that he bought it! When did I become an expert??? Yikes!!!
Thanks again to both of you.
