I have been lurking on Weddingbee for over a year! I never made any posts, but I did mega research on rings. I would go on benders hours at a time looking at everyone’s ring posts and figuring out what style I wanted for my size 9 ring. After four visits to jewelry stores to try on different styles to see what actually looks goods (compared to the ring porn I lust after, like petite styles) I finally found my ring.
And the reason I am making this post??? BECAUSE HE BOUGHT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He originally asked me a couple months ago to give him a minimum of three solid choices. I chose 5, changed my mind, picked 3 more, changed my mind again. I had to go try settings on in person to be sure of what I wanted.
So, now I am waiting for my ring…………I see some girls have made Bucket Lists and I think I might try that to keep myself from going insane with the waiting game.
We are planning on moving in together in September. His birthday is in August (today is July 1st). So…..I’m thinking the proposal is somewhere around the corner.
Here is my ring!!! Moissanite (from Moissaniteco.com) Round 1.5 center with Halo. Split shank. I went with the 14k white gold setting. I am in love with what I call the “crown” because I don’t know the correct termonology…..the area under the halo.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post pictures – and LOTS of them! I have been looking at this exact ring and emailed them but unfortunately, they don’t have photos of it so I would *LOVE* to see pictures! It is so beautiful. They also have a cushion cut version that intriques me as well but this one is breathtaking. Congratulations!! <3 POST asap!! 🙂

Will do on the pictures!!!!
I went into a jewelry store and compared cushion and round cuts on my finger. To be honest, the cushion looked small no matter what….and I could never afford anything over 2carats in real life, so I felt silly ordering anything bigger than 2carats off the Moissanite site. (This is just my preference, I’m not judging anyone who is reading this!)
However, the round looked good no matter what size! So I suggest going into a store and looking at the different cuts on your finger to find what you like best 🙂

Thank you for the advice – I’ve heard this about cushion cuts vs. round and I’m going to take your suggestion. I love cushion cut but I’m worried that it will look too small and I’ll be disappointed because I’m comparing it to a round of the same size. However, if I go too big, I’m worried it will look ridiculous! I think I’ll have to go to a shop, try on a few different cuts and sizes and then see what works.
I love this ring and am waiting in anxious anticipation for your photos!!!
Are you getting the jewelery insurance as well or are you going to have a local jeweler take care of maintenance, check to ensure stones are tight, etc?
