*Update: I had since purchased a couple of diamond engagement rings from White Flash with A Cut Above diamonds. If you are interested to see more details, scroll all the way down to watch some of the videos I recorded.
As many of my readers already know, I’m a huge fan of White Flash because of their transparent business practices and their strict adherence to providing quality jewelry. Previously, I did an indepth write up on their diamonds and received quite a huge amount of feedback from interested readers.
In today’s post, I’m going to show you what you can expect to receive in your FedEx delivery parcel when you purchase an “A CUT ABOVE” diamond from WhiteFlash.com. Also, I performed a video review on the A CUT ABOVE diamond’s performance in various lighting.
For the purpose of reviewing White Flash’s service, I bought this diamond at a wire price of $879.79.
FedEx delivery service is well-known for being punctual and secure. And it’s true; FedEx is one of the most reliable logistics company I had lots of experience with. In my previous job as a researcher, I used to order supplies from various locations around the world and never had a single negative experience with FedEx.
When I started buying diamonds online, FedEx was always my preferred shipper if I’m given a choice of USPS, UPS or DHL. Depending on which part of the world you are in, the parcel delivery from White Flash may take up to a week.
For customers based in the United States, you can expect to receive your purchase within 1-2 working days.

Using my own ASET/Idealscope toolkit, I managed to snap a couple of pictures of the loose diamond using my mobile phone. If you are wondering what these images are for, they are useful for reviewing cut quality and analyzing light return.

Using the free Hearts And Arrows viewer from the tool kit, I managed to capture the following images which reveals the crisp optical symmetry displayed by “A Cut Above” diamonds.
Symmetrically formed arrows and hearts patterns are a result of extreme cut precision.
All in all, the entire process of buying a diamond at White Flash is pretty straightforward. This is largely due to the amount of information they provide on their diamond listing pages (e.g. magnified images, ASET/Idealscope image, sarin report) which really enables you to make better decisions.
I was recently tasked with helping my brother shop for his diamond proposal ring and he ended up choosing a Vatche setting from White Flash. His budget for the engagement ring was around $4,000 and here’s a breakdown of the setting and diamond that were chosen.
With White Flash, the experience of buying a high quality diamond ring was really straightforward and enjoyable. As this was a designer setting, the ring completion took roughly 30 days and it was securely delivered via FedEx. Check out videos for the box opening and diamond performance reviews below…
