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 band is amazing. It matches the engagement ring very well and fits perfectly. Also, we are very pleased with the resizing of the engagement ring. If you remember the ring has cushioning on the inside. I was happy to see the cushioning remained/no re-working of the metal was apparent after what I imagine required cutting out some of the platinum to make the ring smaller. My experience with Whiteflash has been amazing between the craftsmanship and customer service. I will recommend Whiteflash to all of my friends! Thanks so much!

After doing a lot of exploring online and walk in to jewelry stores I decided to go with Whiteflash. I was very invested in finding a good quality diamond and Whiteflash exceeded my expectations! Extra shout out to Debi who made me feel comfortable about the online purchase. Their website is excellent and made finding the perfect ring absolutely effortless. They have a 360 view where you can see any diamond inclusions and sparkle. When I received my diamond my first thought was that it sparkles more than they show on the website! It was EXACTLY what I was looking for. I received compliments all the time. My mom loved the ring, and getting her approval was most important. I highly recommend Whiteflash!! Thank you again for a wonderful ring ! I will cherish this beauty forever!
