Traci, If you don't remember, you helped me buy a diamond over the summer (Ideal Cut, VS1, I, .486). Sorry I didn't email you all this sooner. I always remember when I'm not around a computer that I need to send an email to you with the story and pictures. So, I proposed to my girlfriend right after I got home from working out of town for the summer. I attached a few pics of the ring. And here's the proposal story: We had been meditating on the same Bible verse: Song of Solomon 4:7 ""You are altogether beautiful, my darling, and there is no blemish in you"" while I was in Marietta for the summer. I moved back on Sunday, and non-chalantly asked Kristina if she wanted to go for a walk at the Botanical Gardens and then maybe grab some dinner. So we went out there to the rocks that overlook the river to talk about the verse and catch up some. That is the place where we'd often talk about things and where we decided to start dating again. So we talked about the verse, and I told her that I picked it because that's how I saw her. I gave her a small pocket-size Bible with the verse written on the inside (she had been wanting a small Bible), then gave her a nice artistic card that had pretty much the same verse on it. Inside it I wrote a little note about how I feel for her and the card read ""the voice of the Bridegroom has spoken"". She started to cry a little. I wanted to take the ring out then, but it was stuck in my pocket. So I stood up, which was real awkward, but she had no idea what was going on. I got my hand on the ring box, crouched down in front of her (kinda on a knee, but not totally b/c there was no room on the rock/terrain) and pulled the box out. Totally surprised, Kristina started to shake and cry some. I fumbled over some unrehearsed words and then asked, ""Will you marry me?"" She said, ""Yes, of course!"" And then me, like the total dork I am, realized how I had kinda fumbled over my words and was like, ""I'm a total dork, that wasn't smooth at all."" Kristina reassured me, ""No, no. It was perfect. I love you."" We smooched a second and reveled in the craziness of being engaged. Then cleaned up some and went out to celebrate at 5 and 10 (probably the best restaurant in Athens) for dinner. Thanks soooo much for the help. She really loves the diamond, always commenting how 'sparkly' it is. We plan to get married on March 3rd, 2007. Thanks again for helping me out and putting so much work into it for me!

After spending almost 200 hours of research, visiting local jewelry stores, scouring subreddit forums, and reading through different articles, Whiteflash continued to come up as a potential suitor for my engagement ring search. Because this was my first experience in buying a diamond, the amount of research I did was very much needed. However, it was this article - https://beyond4cs.com/shapes/round/ideal-proportions/ that really helped me understand what it was that I needed to be looking for when analyzing the proper proportions of a diamond. For my fiancée, the size of the diamond was most important, but I soon realized that there was much more to look for besides the carat, clarity, cut, & color. The beyond4cs article mentioned Whiteflash, but I continued to explore other vendors, a few of which I had come across on the r/labdiamond subreddit. There are cheaper options out there, but when making such a big purchase it is important to take into account the comfort in knowing that you're dealing with a reputable company. Whiteflash ultimately provided me with that comfort. They set up their website with the functionality that is required to find the ideal proportions for a diamond. It's incredibly user-friendly and provides one with many options to choose from. When I found what I needed (round brilliant 3.2 carat, F, VVS2, Ideal cut) I had initially planned to purchase the loose diamond and have it set by a local jeweler. Ultimately, I saw that Whiteflash had the exact setting that my fiancée wanted, and their turnaround time for having the ring completed was about 5 business days, which worked out perfectly as I was going to be in Houston on a work trip. Becca stayed in contact with me to anticipate my arrival and met with me during the pickup. The presentation was amazing and the ring itself is absolutely stunning. I know this review is a bit longwinded, but I just want to stress how awesome the Whiteflash team is. I was nervous making such a huge purchase online and buying a diamond that I had not actually seen in-person until it was completed, but this is a great company to work with and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable with the process. Most notably, my fiancée loves her ring and showing it off is now her new favorite pastime.

Beautiful oval diamond engagement ring, shipped super fast (had it in hand in ~ 10 days). Shipped to the store in Sugarland. Shopped all the big and small online stores for lab grown diamonds and White flash had some of the most competitive prices. Liza took care of me at first but multiple staff members were very communicative and helpful.
