Hi there!  My fiance and I decided to go with an Asha diamond until he finishes grad school.  We’d much rather put the money into a down payment for our first home than into a ring right now.  I’ve only had mine for a few months and so far it’s still gorgeous… as shiny as all the real ones I’ve tried on:)

It’s a 1.5ct mounted into a setting we picked out together.  Here are a few pics:

I have a couple of brand-new Asha stones that I plan to list on Ebay (I later found a vintage ring that I fell in love with).   One is a loose stone, a 1.5 ct Radiant (8x6mm) and the other is a 1.5 ct Princess (6.5mm) set in a 4 prong palladium cathedral setting (Elegante), 2mm width.  Would be happy to email pictures if either is of interest.  I can’t speak how they hold up over time since I never wore them but I did take the loose stone into a high-end jewelery shop here to look at settings and the jeweler thought it was a diamond (even after looking at under a loupe!) until I told her it was a sim!

@dreamingofbling: I went with the F.  When I took it to the jeweler, two people helped me and both said it was a beautiful diamond and that I better get it insured.  And so far everyone in the family loves it too, so I’m assuming it’s passing as a diamond:)  It looks real to me, but I’m no diamond expert.

I have an Asha! I love it – FH and I are moving and trying to buy a house. We feel like the diamond is such a small part of it, but we still wanted something nice! 

We went with ashadiamonds.com, as they had so many styles to pick from. Also, we loved that we could get Palladium on the setting. Here’s my beauty πŸ™‚

P.s Pictures do NOT do it justice – it’s so gorgeous. No one knows it’s not a diamond, and women stop me at stores to see it because it’s so sparkly!

I had a hard time choosing between my ring and the Carina (mine is the Verona). But I decided I love the solitaire style setting better, due to the higher profile. 

The band is still up in the air. We’ll probably get something with Kay Jewelers because I have a credit card with them. I’m looking at mixing and matching the band to the ring because it’ll be tough to find something that ‘matches’ without having it custom made.

Here’s a few that I love:

And regarding if people ask if it’s real: No one has questioned it, to be honest. Everyone in my family is ga-ga over it. When they as where we got it, I always answer ‘Oh, Fiance got it from an online retailer’ and say he got a really great deal that way. (thanks to you bees, I got that great response from!!)

@napabridekelsey:  Your ring, especially the setting, is beautiful!  And you’re right, pics don’t do the stone justice.
