Pass the Parcel

Pass the Parcel

Well, yes I received the diamond today, via Fed Ex. After a little misunderstanding, related to the pickup arrangements, I managed to track the courier down (just after his lunch break) and lighten his load by about a carat. Needless to say, I love mobile phones. Anyhow, I didn''t even look at it until I got to the jeweler with whom I have chosen to set the stone. I opened the multi-layered parcel, feeling like I was the only excited player in ""Pass the Parcel"" my favorite party game as a child. Finally I got to the final package and found the folder, and the black bag. Oooh... I hear you say, yes, it was very exciting. OK, so I take out the folder and skim quickly through the letter and the invoice, then with even more relish the original certificate. It feels good to feel the hefty authenticity of the laminated certificate, and to have some weighty tangibility to the months of education and planning. OK, so now to the bag, - this is where the diamond must be... so, here''s a long metal pencil, a big plastic tri-poled diamond scopey thing, a magnifying loop, what''s this? a little hard object in the bottom of the bag... plop! oh it''s just a loose screw! OK so where''s the diamond?... It''s behind you!! I hear you call! ah if only you were there, and we were in a children''s pantomime, but - not to be! So I calmly think... ok so where haven''t I looked, and back I go to the folder. Ah! There it is in one of those paper folds (that I have seen other diamond traders produce). I gingerly open the paper and, viola! MAGNIFICENT! Beautiful colour! great sparkle, wonderful cut. Nice work! The hearts and arrows viewer had lost a screw, but it was in fine working order. I placed the diamond on the black plastic holder and low and behold, arrows appeared! And again pointy side up - boy she really is symmetrical and lovely. And eye clean - at least to my untrained retina. I could only really see the inclusions under the scope, even with the 10X magnifying loop, I could maybe just pick a couple pointy end up. I am really happy. Thank you so much for your patience and advice. I had a wonderful time dealing with you! The diamond will look absolutely stunning in the ring. I will email you a picture once it is done. Thank you again. Yours entrancedly

Ritani's cathedral tapered setting cradles this diamond so proudly, and the "A Cut Above" diamond that I chose responded so brilliantly. I can't thank you and your team enough for helping me enhance such a perfect moment! Whiteflash has mastered the significant process of that search for the perfect ring that so many of us endure. Persistent communication, confident explanation, expert craftsmanship, and behind it all, your people. I absolutely loved this experience! Thank you so very much- I look forward to working with Whiteflash in the future and to perhaps one day visiting your showroom
