  2. This is a great resource! Thanks for sharing.....

  3. Thank you very much for caring! :tup:
  4. :winkiss:
  5. Great site - thanks for sharing!
  6. Thanks for sharing such a useful link!
  7. that site was really helpful but i must admit my BF is getting suspicious as to why i look at rings and carat examples all the time :roflmfao:

    (it amuses me greatly)
  8. Thanks Swanky-great link!:flowers:
  9. Thanks for the link. But when I click on it, it is set at 90% for page visibility. Should it be set at 100%? Just curious :smile: Then it would mean the stones are bigger! hehe
  10. mine defaults to 77.3. . . I think it depends on what you were viewing at in Adobe last time you used it.
    I would assume it should be at 100%
  11. Thanks for the link....now I'm even more excited to get my 4ct!! =) Think we've narrowed it down to two! :graucho:
  12. OOOH! I'm excited for you!!! I can't wait to see and hear all about it!
  13. Thanks for posting Swanky!
  14. These charts can be good for getting a rough idea of carat weigh and how it translates to size, but bear in mind that the actual spread of an individual diamond can vary. For example, some diamonds are cut very deep or shallow and can look small or large for their weight. So it is important when choosing a diamond to take note of the diameter measurements, if you are buying a 1 carat diamond, you want it to look like a 1 carat diamond! With fancy shaped diamonds such as pears, emerald cuts or Radiants, Princess etc, this can be more difficult to judge as cut quality with fancy shapes can vary tremendously.
