Hooray - Just made first purchase from DBL!!!
« on: February 21, 2011, 02:53:16 PM »
Hola all,

Me and the wife are very excited as we just shipped our FIY to David for placement in the (crosses fingers) beautiful split-shank semi-mount #S03472.  We both are gonna have a hard time these next 4 weeks waiting for "Big Brown Truck"!!!   :'(   ;)

David was super nice and helpful on the phone and we are positive the ring is gonna look fantabulous.  Thanks Again Mr. David!!

Daniel

Grats! ElPasoSpoon! 

Yeah, it'll be a loooong wait, especially delivery day.  I personally think that logistics quadruples the number of minutes in each hour on delivery day. :clock: :1224:

But I hope you'll find that it's worth the wait.  So far, David is batting 1000 around here.   We'll all be waiting to see how lovely your FIY sparkly looks on your DW's hand!

Ok, I'll be waiting with bated breath.  Did we get to see your FIY?  If not, and with your permission, maybe David could post one.

I have no problem whatsoever if David would post pictures of the diamond.  In fact, although I can't even imagine how busy he is, I would love to get y'alls opinions on it.

Nice aspect! It will look great. Are you having the halo in yellow or white?

Hola all!!!

Muchas thanks for y'alls great comments on the diamond.  To answer OMC, we are going to have the white diamond halo, in hopes that it would really bring out the color of the center stone.

On another note, I can't believe it has only been 4 days since we put the diamond in the mail.  GRRRRR!! Still have over three weeks to go.

Daniel- that stone has great color all by itself- it's a strong Fancy Intense Yellow.
Still, the contrast will be awesome next to the colorless stones in the halo!
