It took my breath away when the Jeweler handed us the Engagement ring. Literally. It is stunning! We ordered this style based on seeing the sterling silver"model" with all CZ's. I thought it looked pretty good like that! I was completely taken back on how beautiful the Real thing turned out! I am glad I looked for months and got exactly what I wanted. I keep taking the wedding band out and trying it on too (hehe)

I am no photographer and am not sure how to take pictures that really capture the beauty, but I did manage to get a shot or two that didn't come out blurry....here goes...what do you think??

I usually don't like round stones at all, but I like the "heft" of that ring. Very nice!

Your rings are gorgeous! I seem to recall you were considering an Asha for the center....that was you, right? LOL! Did you go with the Asha or did you get a diamond? Either way, they are truly gorgeous! I'm just nosey! LOL!!

Thanks everyone! I couldn't be happier with them! I am having a hard time getting good shots, but trying, I know how everyone loves to see pictures, and it gives me a chance to show them off a little......pardon my hands, I don't think they look this bad in person!

Here is one I took with horrible lighting, so I took it to almost black & white but it lets you see details better.

If you don't mind us asking, what are the specs on the diamonds. They look HUGE and PERFECT FOR THE SETTING!!!! The rings look WONDERFUL on your hand!!!

I went with the Asha. Can you tell? I can't! I was amazed. It looks just like the surrounding natural diamonds and it reacts the same in all lighting conditions. I am truly impressed with the stone!!

Seagulls,
I don't mind at all...after all it was reading such information that people are willing to post that helped me decide what I wanted!

The stones are not huge, but I agree that they are perfect for the setting. The Center is a 1 ct. Asha. (Simply amazing IMO) and the sides on the E-ring total .40 ct F color VS clarity. The Wedding band has a cttw of .60 and are also F/VS

IMO, they all look perfectly matched. As I said in the previous post, the Asha reacts the same as the diamonds in all the lighting condtions that I have been in so far. I truly can not tell that this isnt a perfectly matched Diamond. The Jewelers were even impressed with this stone and said it was the best looking simulant they ever set. The benchman that set it said it faced up sooooo much better than any other simulant he has set.

When I first decided to go with the simulant it was with the thought I would only have the simulant for a year or so, but now I am wondering if I will ever replace it!

Jan,

I thought I remembered that you had purchased a loose Asha when you were looking for your setting.

The Asha looks gorgeous and identical to the other diamonds in your rings! You certainly did make an excellent choice, your rings are a knock out!!

Congratulations!!
