Hi all! My first post/thread on the ‘bee even though I’ve been lurking for a few months! SO and I have gone ring shopping and bought our ring (hooray!). It all happened so quickly – I made an appointment at a few different jewelers/wholesalers over the weekend after doing a LOT of research. Originally, the idea was to only look and get an idea of what we wanted – incidentally, the ring I thought I wanted is nothing like the ring I’m going to get (and am very excited about) – but we both fell in LOVE with a ring at the last place we went to. It was more than our budget (but still affordable for us) and it’s a 1.3 carat radiant center stone with two small trapezoids on either side. We looked at a lot of loose diamonds that weekend, but immediately felt like this was a special stone for us. I really thought I just wanted it as a solitaire until my SO suggested adding to trapezoids on the side (like one of the display rings we saw that was gorgeous). I LOVED it, but wasn’t going to say anything to that effect because we were just at our budget.
All of this is an incredibly long winded way of asking for pictures (particularly on a hand) of a ring with trapezoids. I knew it was gorgeous when I saw it but it was so different from what we originally had been looking for. We’re not going to actually get engaged for a few months, so I’m getting a little antsy. I may or may not have cut out paper stones with the dimensions the jeweler gave me. 🙂
