That is what a friend of mine said to me today when she saw my ring. I hanging out with my friend and kind of helping out since she had a baby not to long ago. Our sons are about nine months apart in age but play wonderfully together. One of her friends stopped by drop something off and they began to admire my ring.
My friend said she had never seen a yellow diamond in person. Her friend made a comment about how it reminded her of something she saw in a museum.
That made me smile and love this ring all the more. I'm not your run of the mill gal. I am a little quirky and enjoy being a bit "different" Colorless diamonds don't do much for me. I use them in my earrings, but in general I am not a fan for myself.
Ever since I saw my first colored diamond, I was hooked. It was a beautiful gray marquise stone. I soon after saw some natural blue and yellow stones. I knew I wanted one, but never thought I would get my dream.
David helped fill my dreams. I sent an e-mail on Sunday after I got back from church and to my surprise, I received a reply that afternoon with pictures of a beautiful stone. I was sold pretty much instantly.
In talking to and e-mailing with David, I always felt like he was a straight forward kind of guy. The service he gave me was outstanding.
So when I asked him if this SI1 stone was eye clean and he told me it was, I felt I could believe him. Now I have eagle eyes and can find a tiny spider across the room 20+ feet away. Drives my husband mad. This means many times what others find eye clean, I won't.
I totally admit to looking at this stone in all lighting conditions with my loupe at my side to help me see if what I am seeing is the inclusion or something else. I have SI1 and SI2 stones that I don't find to be eye clean. It takes me 2 seconds from over a foot a way to find the inclusions. I obviously didn't want a main stone to be like this.
I've had this ring in my hands for almost 4 days now and I can vouch that it is extremely eye clean. It truly is the most eye clean SI1 I have owned. I can only find a small part of the inclusion with my eyes in my oddly lit bathroom. And I mean it is oddly lit, I have never been anywhere else with such unnatural lighting. And in order to see the inclusion I do have to hold the ring in a way that I doubt I would see while wearing it while squinting with one eye totally closed.
I am making a huge point about this for a reason. I have had people claim to have eye clean stones to show me and it never fails to shock them with how quickly I can find inclusions in person w/o a loupe.
So let me tell you when David says a stone is eye clean, he definitely means it. My husband could never find the inclusion in any lighting at all and couldn't find it really well with the loupe either. I make no bones about that it is easy to spot when you focus to the correct depth in the stone, but he doesn't spend much time looking through a loupe so I would say he's your average user.
I am a very picky and sometimes demanding customer at times. I expect honesty from a seller and I expect great customer service or I am not happy. When I am happy I like to shout it to the hills though. I've been known to write more letters of gratitude than I have negative for receiving great customer service. I reward it by sharing my story as much as possible as well as returning for business when I can. I am highly loyal when treated right.
So you can expect an honest, friendly and awesome customer service from DBL. He has my loyalty for as long as I am able to purchase from him! I don't mean just colored diamonds either. I have a list of future projects with even colorless stones for earrings and he will be the first I call without a doubt.
