No, this wedding set is not for me!
I just found out that my roomate’s boyfriend is planning on proposing to her on Valentine’s Day! He doesn’t have a picture of the actual ring, but he sent me the link of the set he is going to get.
My roomate wanted her boyfriend to pick out her e-ring. Her requirements were that the center diamond be an emerald cut, not a solitaire, be white gold or platinum and have a matching band. She’s also very active and outdoorsy so I think this set is perfect for her!
The center diamond is 1.08 carats. I am so excited for her!
What do you think?

LOVE IT! Tell him, good job!
Buying a matching set was the best idea my FI had!
EDIT: Can I ask where it’s from? A friend is also interested in emerald cut and I’d love to show her that!

@mchitt329: I did tell him great job!
It’s so funny because I wanted to be so involved in picking out my ring with my ex, but my roomate is so laid back she trusts that whatever he gets her she’ll love. I really think she’ll love this.
I personally think a Valentine’s Day proposal is a little cliche, but I’m afraid to tell her boyfriend that.

very pretty! I’d like it better if it was pave instead of channel set but that’s just me!

@SnowInApril: Did she mention not wanting a plain solitaire or a solitaire with accents? To me, this is still considered a “solitaire”. Beautiful ring though!

@IzzyBear: Unless the friend is really into rings, I’m guessing she meant a plain solitaire. I have a solitaire with pave stones on the band, but until a few months on the bee, I had no idea it was considered a solitaire! I feel like most people think of solitaires as JUST the center stone and a plain band.

@IzzyBear: She meant she does not want a ring with a plain band. That’s what she means by ‘solitaire’. We’ve all looked at so many rings over the past year that I know that’s what she meant.
I also had no idea, like sarababs that the above setting would be considered a ‘solitaire’.

I define a solitaure as a single center diamond with a plain band- nothing on the band.
I love the ring, but I have an emerald cut so clealry I’m partial!! I’m sure she’ll love it.
