Hello fellow bees, my TBFI and I have been looking at engagement rings online and I was hoping to get some inspiration on this forum! I’m currently in love with large cushion cut solitaires, at least 2 ct in size, see attached photo for an example. I have seen several Daussi rings on online vendors that have caught my eye although most are halos which don’t appeal to me. I have not tried on any rings at a jeweler as of yet – if anyone has an similar ering would you please post hand shots so I can see what it looks like in person? That would be fantastic Thanks in advance!

It is another thread where MANY people have posted their rings. I thought you would be interested in *Ms.HymanRoth*’s ring – it’s a knockout! As well as *MissPizelle* and *Corgitales*
Good Luck and Happy Hunting! :0

@mrsk2be- thanks 🙂 although my ring doesn’t meet the carat requirement hehe
@cliniquelove- the photo that you posted is a tiffany novo. 2ct will run you about 45-55K. My ring is from bluenile and I l-o-v-e it. Pic is below. You get to pick the diamond and the band separately so you can really get whatever you want. Mine is a 1.01 ct stone on a platinum pave band.
I just built you one on bluenile really quick. 2.04 ct cushion, E, IF, very good cut (best you can get for cushion, there is no “ideal”), gia certified, in a platinum pave setting. $31,561. pic below.

Mine won’t meet the 2 carat requirement either (mine’s right at 1). my setting is large, though [attachment=595677,77743]

I fell in love with a Henri Daussi back a few months ago and even posted some pictures of it here. It was beautiful on! I only have a screen shot of it but try the halo look. The one below is a split shank but because the shank starts at the center of the diamond and goes out it makes the center stone look even bigger! And Henri Daussi is know for his exceptional cushion cuts!

Mine is just over 2 carat cushion in a pave band. I tried the halo but wasnt a huge fan on me.
**EDIT – mine is the Tiffany Novo, though then Fiance took it to a jeweler and had the jeweler make it. So not he TCo name (or price) but same quality and bigger size =o)

Have you checked out doverjewelry.com? They often have Daussi estate rings on there MUCH cheaper.
I fell in love with one but someone bought it first! =(

My Daussi is a halo, so I won’t bother posting a pic for you but I just have to say that while I was looking at cushions, almost all of the Daussi cut stones “faced up” (looked like a bigger stone from the top) than the other cushion cuts I looked at. I love the extra sparkle and perceived size as opposed to the depth that you often get with a traditional cushion cut 🙂
