big ugly CZ?
Can you guys tell? She didn't say.
This ring was posted on an engagement ring thread from a wedding board that I am also on...I think it's the most horrible thing I've ever seen (maybe...there have been some doozies posted here for kicks, too...) and I *don't* even think it's a diamond...it's almost transparent!?
I didn't comment on that thread, of course, because I would never ask such a thing from someone so newly and ecstatically engaged...
the thread was "my new ring...isn't it GORGEOUS?"

I think it has the full complement of 26 facets, though. We got one like that free with our Harriet Carter catalog order. I'll get the camera.....

White topaz or sapphire?
Quote this post and reply to it Post#8 @ 03-02-02 , 06:19 PM


It looks too dull, even for CZ. Even the picture Rodentman posted is more brilliant. Perhaps it's white topaz, or white sapphire.

(Edit) Er, the picture Rodentman posted of the free CZ; of course his Eightstar is beautiful.

The funny thing is that all these women have been responding with oohs and aahs and "I've never seen such a BIG diamond...it's beautiful!" and "Your fiance has great taste"
The first thing I thought was "What a HORRIBLE CZ!"
but...the one girl that "sort of" stated her opinion that it was either a really bad diamond or a cz...got completely bashed as being "catty"...so in the world OUTSIDE DT there ARE women who equate BIG with BEAUTIFUL. ?
It does look like there are only 26 facets

Another try at the diamond for comparison:

Yes, what board is it? I could always post a tactful response.

I would never be mean, but I would have to have a laugh...I wouldn't want to hurt her feelings, since she does love it.. I've had to bite my tongue a lot lately with all the new engagement rings the girls at school have been getting...I know they love them, so I don't say anything.. But I want to tell them to take them back and get something worth wearing!!!

I found the thread under 'Jewelry, Hair, and Beauty' as 'My Beautiful Ring'. And *yeep*, it looks like someone from DT may have posted some rocky words of wisdom there at the end, regarding appraisals and settings. Or a newly-registered person with some sense, anyway. I suspect the beaming newly-engaged doesn't really want to hear a reality check. Ah well.

Even The Rodentman was characteristically his sweet self over there.

But isn't it a few facets short of an RB? Can the camera angle be the cause of that? How "real" can it be at over 4 carats?

I was looking at an engagement ring post on the Ultimate Wedding site and I saw your ring (which I just absolutely love) and the picture of you and your fiance under it...Can I just say that you are gorgeous??? For anyone who wants to see how pretty she is, go to ultimatewedding.com and look under the threads Jewelry, Hair, and Beauty then under engagement ring. I hope you don't mind me posting this, but you are just so pretty!!! =o)

I found the thread...very interesting...
I read but didn't post...
OT: Looking at that board just confirms my opinion that a simple board such as this without all the superfluous flashing graphics is much easier to read.

Oh man, I wouldn't last 10 minutes on that flashy board! Someone made an offhand comment and the sys admin told her to stay on topic. On topic! What fun is that? Oh pullleeeeeeezzzzeeeee!

It is sadly clear that the majority of folks over there do not know much about diamonds.

If that's a real diamond, I'll be dancing Swine Lake with the Bolshoi Ballet.

DT's Taste
Quote this post and reply to it Post#25 @ 03-02-02 , 08:04 PM


In looking through the ring gallery on that board, I realized what fine taste everyone on DT has. Although there were a few very nice rings there, most of them were pretty generic-contemporary. Conversely, I routinely lust after the rings of DT. Susans, I saw your ring there also! I think I would recognize you anywhere with that gorgeous ring. And I agree, you're very pretty.

That board IS horrible on the eyes; you get a screenful of flashing graphics and photos for a one-line reply.
