A couple have been posted very recently… have you searched the boards?  Also, try a google search for “radiant halo engagement ring”.  You’ll get several images from the Bee, and even a youtube video right on the first page of results.

Hi! I just got my radiant ring! I’ll post some pics below. I too loved the emerald cut, but I realized that it sometimes doesn’t sparkle very much. Our jeweler recommended the radiant cut, because it has lots of facets and lots of sparkle.

I love mine!  FI surprised me, I didn’t even know about radiant cuts until he gave me my ring.  Mine is a little over 2ct center stone, not sure about the baguettes, platinum setting. my ring size is 6.5.

@ms.jellen:  My wedding band is actually the bezel set diamond band in the first picture. The band in the middle is a rose gold band my DH got me for Christmas. I usually wear all 3 together and love them. I took the 2nd picture to show a bee on here how the rose gold would look by itself with my engagement ring.

The nail polish is actually Shellac and the color is called Rubble. This is my first time getting shellac and before I’d always use essie Hot Coco (which is a similar color).

@ms.jellen:  Thanks πŸ™‚  Sorry, I have NO idea of the ratio…I will try to remember to ask FI (if he even knows LOL).

@KatNYC2011:  I love the Shellac, been using if for a little over a year now…I am the type who will wreck her nails before she even leaves the salon so it’s great!  I can do dishes, garden, etc…no chips for weeks!

Winter I use a deep burgundy/black cherry (can’t remember the name) and spring/summer I use Tutti Fruitti πŸ™‚

You are definitely on the right track with 1.20-1.30.  This webpage should give you some guidelines for the table, girdle, cutlet, etc.  Keep in mind that these are only the guidelines according to this particular jeweler and also remember that GIA does not have specific qualifications for fancy cut diamonds.
