First of all EEEEEKKKKKKKK!!!! I’ve been a long time fan of these boards and now I can finally contribute my engagement story! I am engaged to the absolute love my lifetime and could not be happier. He proposed at my family reunion banquet in front of ALL my family and it was just perfect!
The only problem was that the center diamond was a little smaller than what I was hoping for. I really had my heart set on a 1.5 carat amora moissy and he got me a .83 carat diamond. While I love and appreciate that he wanted to get me diamonds, I do love the bling!! My FI and I are open and honest about everything, so I told him I loved the ring because he got it for me, but I really did have my heart set on a moissy…so he said we could get a loose stone and replace the center diamond. We ended up replacing the whole ring as the setting could only hold up to a 1 carat diamond, and the amora we bought was a 1.25. Here is what my original ring looked like:
And here is what my original ring and the moissy look like side by side.
Sidenote: I bought the moissy from Better Than Diamond. They only had like three 1.25 amora moissanites available, so I jumped on it.
And FINALLY, here is my precious!!!!
Specs: 1.25ct I color amora moissanite center, setting is .90 carats, H color diamonds SI1, and band width is 6mm on a size 6.25 finger. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT AND THE MAN WHO MADE IT HAPPEN!!!! EEEEEEKKKKKK!!!
