elatedmidnight:  

thank you! It’s actually based off a Monique Llhuilier design from Blue Nile. The original design was meant for a round diamond but I had it custom made to suit my .5ct princess stone.

heputaringonit:  Thank you! It was a shame because I thought it was gorgeous but after all the messing about from Crouch/Fraser Hart the chain it tainted it for me and went with something else, this was the one that my fiance chose for me and proposed with. He did choose well.

That was a picture of the one I was proposed with but my fiance got the size like 8 sizes to small! So took it back to exchange it, my fiance at the time of buying it was told they did my size and would be able to exchange it, but was then told they didn’t have that size so they will search the rest of they’re stores for the size. About 4 weeks later we still hadn’t heard from them, contacted them and were told they don’t do my size at all and lied about it. Then started saying they were making the ring from scratch for me. Took another 4 weeks, so 2 months after being proposed to I was still ringless, and we finally got it. However it had not been brand newly made. When I observed it the back of the band was really thin and appeared to be stretched and there was actual silver cut marks in the rose gold! So basically they took a ring 8 sizes to small and stretch and cut it badly and lied about it. Plus, the diamond had a huge feather that took up over half of the 0.33 diamond across the top! The diamond was very bad quality yet was almost the same price as my 1.5ct Amora! 

I ended up ringless for the first 6 months of my engagement due to them. It taught me to stay away from chain stores when it comes to rings!

You ladies must have either tiny fingers or a much different idea of “small” than mine >.> Here’s my baby – I admit I thought it looked a bit stingy at first, but I’ve grown to love it with the simplicity but interest of the split shank. I’m not any sort of girly girl so I think it fits my personality perfectly.

Terrible pic but she’s a 0.42 J vvs1 set in a thin rose gold pavé ring from James Allen(size 6) – the setting is far more delicate than I would have wanted but I was on a strict money and time budget. 

I’m surprised what a little sparkle beast she is for her size, especially under street lights and in the super market 🙂

lags2011:  beautiful! Is the setting from Blue Nile? There’s a ring on there I’ve been strongly considering resetting my solitaire to but I get so nervous because I want to see real life pics. Yours looks very similar!

ArmyWifey8.23:  it was based on a monique Llhuilier design blue nile ring. I had it custom made to fit my princess stone.  It cost about 100$ more over the blue nile price and I got better quality diamonds in the setting 😁
