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

The ring is absolutely beautiful. I love the two-tone aspect of it w/ the gold & platinum prongs. As for the diamond, it's perfect. I opened the package sitting in my car in the Fedex parking lot yesterday in OK City, w/ the bright sunlight shining in, & as soon as I opened the pretty little red & black box, there were flashes & sparkles going all over the place...some actually quite blinding ;-) I am very pleased w/ the ring as a whole, the band is exactly what I imagined, & the diamond is perfect! Thank you & your other team members SO much for making this decision & the subsequent process of selection such a wonderful experience. I think I knew that first day that I walked into Whiteflash, that I would be back there for this very important purchase. Your personally, friendly demeanor, & genuine care & knowledge of the stones always led me back to Whiteflash when I was looking elsewhere...well, & the perfectly-cut diamonds.

I want to start off by thanking you and your entire team involved in this process, you guys did an AMAZING and OUTSTANDING job. I absolutely love the ring! The ring turned out to be better than what I had imagined. The amount of detailing on the ring was amazing. The Diamond was a breathtaking piece also loved that! My Fiancé loved everything about the ring. She was extremely happy with the entire ring.

Great experience and gorgeous rings! When I started my research, I knew nothing about diamonds and, having seen a lot of poorly cut diamonds, I was afraid to pay a lot and end up with one. Little by little, by surfing on the Internet, I learned about the 4 C's and grading labs. When I discovered Whiteflash's website, I was really impressed by their very detailed part on Education and learned about the AGS Cut Grading system. I was relieved to see that, by selling AGS triple 0 diamonds, Whiteflash was as quality conscious as I was and that by buying through Whiteflash I would have the guarantee to have a great sparkling stone. My diamond consultant, was very professional and answered all my questions very quickly. I was amazed by all the settings available and it took me some time to choose one. When I received my rings, I was amazed by their craftsmanship and by the diamond's brilliance. The whole process (advice, pictures, shipping,..) was very professional and the rings are absolutely awesome. I am sure I will order again and I already recommended you.
