  1. These are the reflections that I get from my ring. I also get reflections from the micropave diamonds similar to the photos that davidelevi posted. Thanks for the awesome help and compliments!
  2. Thank you! I love the ring. My ring size is 4.25.
  3. Thanks for all the help! I was just a tad bit concerned. So here is the ring finally on my finger after several months of e-ring shopping. Harry Winston Micropave Ring with Emerald Diamond Emerald Diamond: 2.5 ct, E VVS2 80 Round Diamonds : .55 ct Total is 3.05 ct Today is gloomy so when the sun comes back out, I'll take a photo of the reflections that I'm referring too. Thanks for the replies and for letting me share my beautiful ring
  4. Also, if it reflects dots of rainbow colors, are the diamonds well cut?
  5. Thank you both for your reply! I will post some pics shortly. I have one last question though. The reflections that I'm referring to are little tiny dots that bounce off my ring into rainbow dots on the ceiling of my car and not rainbows within the stones itself. I remember just seeing glitters of white from my previous jewelries. Does that sound normal? Thanks again! I really appreciate all the explanations as when it comes to diamonds I'm still a beginner.
  6. As you all know, I just received my e-ring but I have a concern. I was driving one day and noticed that when my ring is under the sun, the little reflections (from the tiny stones in the micropave setting) that I see in the car are rainbow colors. I read in some sites that real diamonds reflects shades of gray and that simulated or fake diamonds reflects a rainbow of colors. It may also be a poor cutting of the diamond as well. I'm a bit puzzled as we got the ring at Harry Winston and I do not think they would do one or the other. Can someone be kind enough to explain this to me? Thanks in advance!
  7. I posted some preview pics already, but will post some more after the proposal.
  8. My BF recently purchased my ring at HW and we had a great experience there as well. The SA that we were working with was very knowledgeable of the products and diamonds. We mostly dealt over email before we went into the store to view the stones and he was prompt at his replies. They were also flexible and willing to do a custom design upon request as long as the ring was within the HW aesthetics. I had to wait 4-6 weeks as promised, but finally, I had a chance to preview my ring last week before the proposal and it was fabulous!

    My E-Ring!

    Good eye, LaurieH. I put the two rings on really quick but since the e-ring and band doesn't fit flush together, it has the tendency to move a bit. Also it may be the angle of the pic as well but certainly it's not asymmetrical. Thank you for your kind words and all your help in choosing my dream ring!

    My E-Ring!

    I like to thank everyone from this forum that helped me in choosing this ring. Your feedback was wonderful and to me, it's the perfect ring and more than I can ask for. After many months of searching and a few months of waiting, I finally got to try on the ring! I don't have it yet because my dear BF wants to surprise me with a proposal so I'm patiently waiting until I see it again. In the meantime, here are some pics that I took at Harry Winston yesterday.

    How may I go by requesting this from the retailer? Can I asked them to provide some type of proof that the diamond is in good condition before/after the mounting on the setting? I did ask regarding the return policy and they do accept that within 30 days if the ring has not been worn. Thanks for the pointers!
