    My man worked really hard to get me my ring. He did not want any help though… and he asked what I wanted and I said a big diamond with a halo- and that’s what he got. I thought he would of thought to look at all the Cs, but ya know… he’s a man. He bought from Ritani (they’re the worst by the way) and he proposed. I did not notice until the next day how yellow and cloudy it was. After a week I got the courage to talk to him about it. He actually took it super well and asked if I’d like to look at some more rings and compare. He was actually pretty upset Ritani would sell such low quality to an unexpecting man who knew nothing. He helped me pick out my loose stone today (WHAT A WINNER) and we are having it set in a basic white gold Tiffany setting. It’s gorgeous and near flawless. 

    Any words of encouragement that I’m doing the right thing is great? I never thought I’d want a solitaire but was googly-eyed at the store… would love to hear some opinions on the idea!

    honeyandcupcakes:  Love the re-design! It’s funny how both of us changed our ring, but still kept an overall similar style (esp cuz we kept the same center stone)

    olna:  I LOVE my ring, and most people had nothing but nice things/compliments on it. Except of course for my Future Sister-In-Law, who looked at it and said she would have wanted larger. She can kick rocks IMO.

    Michelleac:  Is this the Cartier love wedding band? Or just the Cartier love ring? I love the look in yellow gold.

    I have always loved the classic look of a solitaire, which my fiance knew, but I also told him he had some room to pick something he liked when shopping for a ring. He got me a solitaire with a halo of diamonds around. I love it

    I didn’t like my ring. I think it’s very small (0.23!!), and not my stylleat all. After a few threads here I finally talked to my fiance, and we are very close to completing a design with a jeweler.  I am using the same diamond – that’s what my fiance insisted on, but adding lots of details and a halo. I hope it will look very nice.  I like it on a sketch,but I am having troubles realizing the scale of it.
