my Fiance and I have been really debating since November of last year on what to do about my engagement ring. At the moment, I either wear nothing on my finger, or I wear a ring that is gold plated and has a row of alternating rubies and diamonds that my Mom had gotten me for my Christmas about 3 years ago. Just something as a placemark to show that I am indeed engaged, just haven’t gotten the ring due to indecisiveness.
But what I am considering is getting a Tacori setting, the 2620, in 18kt white gold. And setting it with an Asha center stone. I am unsure as to whether I want the row of pave diamonds on the side, or if I want it set with a round or a cushion, but definitely one of those center stones for sure.
I am listing a couple of videos to give you an idea of what it looks like, and any opinions would be great, it would mean a lot to me.
I think my favorite part about the ring is the basket on it, and it is just so pretty, and sparkly. Lol. But I think that is the one! I originally wanted to put an emerald cut diamond for the center, but after some careful thought, plus my FI’s preferences, we decided to go with the round or the cushion, which reminds me of the round. I figured that it really is the only true thing that the groom has a say in, because traditionally all the wedding specifications centers around the bride. So I thought that this touch would be perfect, and he would love that I thought of him.
Thank you! I was really stuck on the emerald cut and the radiant cut for the longest time, but the emerald cut didn’t have enough sparkle in my opinion, and the radiant cut just looked like a bunch of crushed ice to me, without the read solidity of the round cut. But it was a balance of round and emerald, so that is why I loved it so much. But when it comes down to it, I am a traditional girl, and to me that just screams the round cut. I never wanted to believe I was, but I am! The only thing I like over the round is the cushion because it reminds me of a pillow, and I think the cut is absolutely fabulous. 🙂
I should probably create a separate post to show you my ring. I think that I will after I do this final posting. I got my ring, and I was really nervous about it up until it came in. I have had it for about a week now, I recreived it about a day after I did the original posting. Tell me what you think.
