My Engagement Ring!
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 06-27-06 , 08:15 PM


OK Folks! It's been a long road, but I've finally decided on an engagement ring!

I went back an forth on pretty much every aspect of what I wanted as far as a stone goes, but then I came upon an adorable yellow cushion in David's EBay store. After about a day and a half of thinking about it, I decided that was the stone for me!

It's a 1.01ct Cushion. The yellow has a hint of brown in it, which I think adds a little bit of depth to the color (not to mention brings down the price). As far as clarity goes, David is calling it an SI2 because of what in his words is, "a small black spot, and a white feather- neither of which is apparent with your naked eye."

I'm having it set in his diamond-studded Lucida style setting for now. In a couple of years, I will probably upgrade to a platinum setting, perhaps with some cushion sides... Who knows...

Now I begin the waiting game.... I'm not sure how long the FF will keep it before he gives it to me, but I guess we'll see! David said that our favorite WebGal would take a hand shot before it leaves tomorrow, so that will have to hold me over until I get it!

Sorry for the long post, and thanks to everyone for all the help they've been during my search!

Oh Annie, that is going to be spectacular!! This is the setting you are getting right? OMG - can't wait for a handshot! Let's hope your BF presents it to you in a reasonable time frame instead of making you wait months and months like some of the boys here!

Yes ma'am, that's the one!

I also hope he doesn't wait too long... I don't think he will, but I don't want to jinx myself, so I'm not going to make any guesses!

I'm so happy and excited for Annie!!! I too think the 'hint of brown' adds more warmth to the yellow Congrats and pictures are a must! :P

Thank you for your good wishes susi and kleinkath!

I'm pretty sure you're right kleinkath - I think I'm going to like having a cushion.

WebGal didn't have a chance to take a photo of the finished ring during her marathon of photo taking, so I will have to wait patiently for the dear bf to purpose!

Thank you SOOOO much for getting these pictures for me!

I think it turned out perfectly! The setting looks great, and I love the shape of the stone... ::sigh::

I was so excited when I called my boyfriend after I got out of work, and he told me you had posted the pictures. I must admit... I probably went a little faster than I usually would on the way home...

Thanks again to everyone for the nice words!

Now the hard part starts... The waiting...
