- Wedding: September 2012
To make a long story short, my mother-in-law gave my husband a beautiful half carat ring when we first started dating. She claimed that his father had given it to her and that when the time is right to give it to me. So cut to 2 years ago, he proposed. About 5 months later we find out that the ring is NOT from my husband’s father. It’s from a previous marriage. It really grossed us out and put my husband and I in a weird position. We were trying to save up for a wedding and didn’t have the money to spend on a ring, so he went online to find something to take a temporary place on my finger until we can afford my dream ring. He got a half carat diamond on Amazon.com. We got married in September and everything was great and beautiful, but now that I’m wearing my wedding band, it makes my ring look a little lackluster. It doesn’t have the same sparkle that my wedding band has. I love love love my band and so my husband and I have been taking about replacing my ering with an asha. I’ve been leaning towards cushion cut. I’m thinking the 2 ct (7mm). So could you ladies please post pics of your cushion cut Ashas? 1 carat or more? Thanks so much in advance. I’m really excited about having a ring that we believe deserves to sit next to my gorgeous wedding band.
This is my current set right now. My finger is an 8.5 and the TDW on my band is 3/8 ct. This picture does my band no justice.
