1. 0.75ct from Blue Nile. It was so beautiful but a little out of our price range at the time so we returned it. 

2. 1.5ct Forever Brilliant moissanite. Don’t have a real life pic on my phone. Loved the simplicity but I lost it last Christmas 🙁

3-4. My forever ring, finally. 1.5ct radiant cut in a custom Verragio setting.

Not the greatest picture, but I like how it shows both of them together.

ERing (bottom): 18K yellow gold, platinum prongs. I don’t remember all the specs, but I think the center is around .5, and a G in color. I think the ring TCW is around .75-.90 (I thought .75, but DH insists it’s .90 *shrug*)

Anniversary (16 years!) “upgrade”: Platinum setting. Center diamond is .90, E color. I think it might be SI1, but I’m not sure of that. There’s a tiny carbon spot covered by the prongs. Setting has about 1.5 carats in princess cuts, invisibly set. I think it’s around 2.4 or so TCW for the whole ring.

A couple of “individual” pictures:

Kept my stone, but changed the setting. Center stone is a bit over a carat.

My original was a .26 stone, with rubies and tiny diamonds on the side. New (DH’s idea after 15 years) is 1.71 solitaire. I normally wear both the wedding band (plain) and anniversary band (channel set) with the new ring, although DH has talked about getting a new prong-set band.

My first engagement ring was a .8 carat round diamond solitaire in 14k white gold. Right before the wedding I upgraded to a 1.2 carat round diamond solitaire in 14k rose gold. Shortly after getting married I lost the rose gold solitaire and my husband replaced it with a .83 carat princess cut Leo diamond in a Neil Lane Halo setting with matching band.I also wear my original wedding band with my set. 3.00 carats total.
