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

Both my fiancé and I absolutely adore the ACA diamond engagement ring purchased from Whiteflash. The entire experience (shopping, customer service, purchasing and shipping) has exceeded my expectations. Our sales rep was integral in this decision, as she took the time to answer every small question and opinion I could throw at her. Ultimately, it was the quality, trust and competency of the WhiteFlash team that gave me the confidence to pull the trigger. Their quality diamonds are hands down the most brilliant and beautiful I've ever observed. Thank you so much for making such a major purchase decision easy and stress-free. Lastly, Whiteflash offers one of the most generous trade-up programs across both online and brick & mortar jewelry stores.

I'm a month late writing this, but it's given me lots of time to admire the stunning ring I received from Whiteflash Team. My ACA diamond is truly something special. Buying diamonds online is nerve-wracking. I was upgrading from another diamond purchased online, and although I did my research and the diamond had all the right cut measurements/angles, it just never seemed that "brilliant". It was pretty but not stunning. Moving to an ACA diamond from Whiteflash is like night and day - this diamond makes me smile every time I look at it. Even my husband continues to make comments - he can easily see how much better cut this diamond is. WF staff were super easy to work with and responsive as I tried to select the right diamond for me. I went with a simple setting that is beautifully made. They even take beauty shots of your ring that you can share! I couldn't be happier with my decision to choose Whiteflash and will be back to work with them next time I want to upgrade :)
