Yes! I picked it up this morning and it is absolutely beautiful! I have already taken it to a jeweler to be set into my ring. It should be done next week.
I actually had to take it to two jewelers. The first one, who is local and well known in this area did not feel comfortable setting it into my ring. He said that, though the stone was a beautiful, the girdle was on the thin side and he feared it could chip during the process. I think perhaps he wasn''t experienced enough. He said he wasn''t willing to take the risk of having to replace it. He did, however, recommend a very well established, highly respected jeweler in another local city who he felt would be better qualified. I immediately took it to the second jeweler, who confirmed that it was a very beautiful stone and said he had no reservations whatsoever about setting it. It should be ready in about one week, possibly sooner.
Thank you so much for all your help! As you know, I had reservations about buying a diamond over the internet. However, you and others at Whiteflash.com were so helpful and kept me constantly informed of the status of my purchase and this was really a great experience. You were very patient and answered all of my questions! I am very happy with my purchase and can''t wait to see the final result!
