Hello everyone!

After browsing around the site a bit, it seems I'm the usual soon-to-be proposing young man in need of a crash course in diamond education and advice. Looks like I came to the right place!

I've been poking around some of the same type of threads that I'd be likely to post, and getting all worked up to try not to duplicate what's been already asked and asked and asked (guess I should check for the FAQ!).

I need to get The Goddess (my lady-in-waiting) out to look at some general styles and also to see what size of stones work well on her hand, but so far she's shown a preference for princess cut stones. I'm planning to put in some face time at B&M stores, but could probably be talked around by some of the (apparently very highly regarded!) network dealers here. FYI, I'm in Calgary, Alberta, so any tips on good local jewelers would abe great.

Any direction to oldie-but-goodie threads would also be appreciated!

Y'know, I just noticed that my username was a jewelery pun as well as a pasta pun (two intertwined strands of pasta - appropriate for an engagement).

You know? Your username as a jewelery pun didn't cross my mind until you mentioned it! LOL love the pasta pic!

As a princess owner and fan, I hope you find what you're looking for

Speaking of wordplay:

The Spanish word for wife is esposa
The Spanish word for handcuffs is esposas.

Thats all I'm gonna say about that.

Maybe couples should start exchanging wedding bracelets....

Or the husband-to-be should receive a heavy iron anklet.

Not 'till the wedding, but that's what the Engagement Shackle is for.

BTW, is that your e-ring in your avatar? Are there some more pics about?

OOooh... sparkly! What are the dimensions on that beautiful princess? (trying to get a feel for what different sizes look like)

I'm quite enamoured of baguette side stones like yours, but it's not *my* ring.

Y'all are going to make a diamond nut out of me. I DO have one in my ring (inherited) but it's an itty bitty round one. I should take some pics of the ring and see if anyone can help me with the history... it's engraved with a little pic on the top face and the words MID WEST (rumoured to be from Mid West Diamond Drillers).

LOL! My DH was forced to wear an ankle chain attached to a large bowling ball for his entire stag night!

I have my GIA cert in a safety deposit box, but from what I can remember it's:

3.10 G, VS1
no flour
vg polish/sym
8.36x8.30x5.xx ??? I think, and the ratio was 1.01 so pretty square
ummmm

side stones:
.78 tcw, F, VS1 supplied by Leon

OK, here's the pics of my glorious man ring. The ring normally is worn on the middle finger of my RH, but I'm not ambidextrous, so I switched it.

If anyone's ever come across a similar ring or has any clues about the inscription, please tell me.

Oh! Thanks for posting a few pictures! It's very substantial, and I bet that the gram weight is equally as heafty.

Not sure what the inscription is, but my suggestion? Make a new thread and see if others chime in!!

It's a personal good luck charm. Grandpa wore it since I can remember, and passed it down to me.
