So my BF and I are on our way to becoming engaged (yay!). My mother is giving me her 2.5 carat round brilliant diamond for the ring and now we just have to find the setting.
We were originally going to get an oval cut before my mom gifted me hers, so I really have no idea on what kind of setting I want. I love looking at others engagement rings for ideas or if you have any suggestions that would be great! I’m thinking the simpler the better because the diamond is so beautiful but I’m still so lost! and if im lost…we all know my poor bf is lost as well.

Wow! That’s amazing!! You’re lucky!
I would go into a jewelry store if I were you, and specifically ask for settings that look nice with a large round stone. Specific settings are meant for certain types/sizes of stones and they can show you which ones can compliment it the best.

@kimca07: i also have a round brilliant that is just over 2.5 carats. the setting we chose is a split shank halo which really enhances the beauty of the diamond and makes it look very elegant in my opinion. check out the pics in my gallery.
