Got engaged a couple weeks ago, and been so busy, I haven’t had time to share! Long story short, we went to see monuments in DC, and I proposal-blocked him a few times because I was so nervous. After an amazing day out together in the city, he proposed back at our apartment. The only thing I remember aside from hysterically crying for like, an hour, is that he said we’re going to have lots of babies, but they’re all going to be really ugly because we’re so attractive 😛
And now for what you really want to see!
Specs: 2.5ct diamond center stone (SI1, J color, Ideal/Ex cut, Strong Blue flourescence). There’s another .4 carats in the pave.
At work, reflecting the slate grey walls:
Annnnd- my FAVORITE aspect of my ring- the Strong Blue flourescence!!! We bought a UV light to specifically view the diamond with it. One of the baby diamonds also has flourescence. And no, the flourescence doesn’t make it the least bit cloudy at all-100% clear diamond.

@JLR1982: We do! I love the classic solitaire look with the added bling of pave! Mine’s a custom, certified conflict free diamond too!
@pineapplez17: Thank you! The light we bought also has a laser on it (and you can see in one of the pics that I have a cat). She gets super confued when she sees us pick up the UV flashlight, and a laser doesn’t come out when we click it on 😛
Thanks guys! I’d been feeling down about my ring because my mother has not had one nice thing to say about it since I got it. She loves my fiance, and is excited for us & planning an engagement party in a couple months, but she refuses to say anything nice about the ring 🙁

@VivienMarcheline: Haha my kitty get’s excited when the laser pointer comes out…he would be confused too!
How can she not love your ring? I think it’s gorgeous. We’re going the colored gemstone route, but if I were to get a diamond, I would want a solitaire with pave setting just like yours!
