An even older, more brilliant, antique ring than I have. But I love mine so! Or a Rubellite and diamond ring….I have rubies and diamonds so its similar. Ironically all the ones I really love are under $1000.

A micropave, cathedral setting with intricate underscroll. 10 aquamarine stones and 8 diamonds to make up the micropave in an aquamarine-diamond-aquamarine… pattern. Accompanied by a 2 carat, D color, FL clarity, super-ideal cut, round diamond.

When my money and his money becomes our money, my dream ring could easily become a reality for an anniversary upgrade… But the diamond probably wouldn’t be of FL clarity or D color. More like E-F color, VVS1-VS2 clarity lol. Which is completely fine with me. 🙂

And as of right now, I love the ring I have picked out for our engagement. It makes me absolutely giddy, I’m obsessed with it.

Lol.. get ready for a bunch of “I would pick my exact ring” comments.


But anyway, my engagement ring will be a 3 carat equiv moissanite. But if we had all the money in the world, it would probably be like a 4 carat diamond, same style, most likely, just a diamond as the center. I don’t know how diamond specs go, but I would want a really nice perfect one.

I would want a 1.5 carat Tiffany setting. We didn’t exactly have $25,000 to spend on an engagement ring, though.

Probably a 1.5 Hearts on Fire Dream cut diamond with VS1 or better, H or better color with the setting and the band I already have.

Honestly, the exact one I have.

If diamonds cost less (different than “if we had more money”), I think we would have gotten D, Fl, rather than F, VS1, but in this world, with the poverty that there is, the cost for the F VS1 was the max amount I felt good about spending on a diamond.

Oh I’ll play! I’d love to have a 1+ M IF Ideal diamond in a setting like this.

I would get my engagement ring all over again! But maybe with a slightly bigger center stone, and a higher spec, like D instead of F, 1.5ct instead of 0.61. Still the Tiffany Setting in yellow gold though 🙂
