Some of you may remember my incredible story of finding my EW setting. Short story is that I had a 3.443 J SI1 in a EW Margot that I found while sleuthing the internet.
I thought I had my HG but after about a year, the SI1 began to really bother me. The transparency of the stone was not as beautiful as previous stones I had. So I upgraded to a 3.243 I VS2, a glorious stone that I love. The only problem was that it was just shy of fitting in the Margot setting. So I had the stone set in a CvB Dahlia.
Dahlia is a beautiful setting but after some time I began to really miss my Margot. I kept an eagle's eye oninventory but nothing ever came up that would fit my Margot. And I just really didn't want to shuck out the money for another Margot. Plus that would negate my serendipity find!
About a month ago, I finally reached out toto inquire about when a 9.7mm I VS2 might be available and what kind of budget I would need. Unfortunately, I had serious, serious sticker shock. To go from 3.243 I VS2 to about 3.5 I VS2 was a crazy amount IMO and there was no timeline for getting one either. Now, DH is a super generous awesome guy but if I paid that amount for 0.2 mm, he would probably head to the big D! Or at the very least have me committed.
So I remembered that @MamaBee had mentioned that DK was a master at making it work.
So he did it!!! And now I can call myself Indiana Jones because I HAVE MY HG!!!
