First, thank you for taking the time to read my post. I’m a fish out of water and greatly appreciate your help.
I’m looking to get engaged in the next few months and have begun to search for a ring.
I want to get my future fiancé something unique, subtle (not ostentatious), yet truly spectacular. She hasn’t given me any hints regarding ring preference, but I know she does like sapphires. My price range is in the 30-40k range, but obviously less would be preferable.
A little by the way of background; my future fiancé is 33, born and raised in Paris, olive colored skin (she’s half black and half white),5’7, slender/athletic build with medium length skinny fingers(ring 6), an executive at a multinational company based in the United States. I would describe her as sporty and generally casual, although she likes to dress up for nice dinners etc. She never wore any jewelry except for what I’ve gotten her during our relationship which is a diamond by the yard necklace in white gold, tiffany tennis bracelet in white gold, and two diamond by the yard bracelets in white gold and rose gold. All three bracelets are worn on the same arm.
Any ring suggestions?
I’ve come across the design below by Kwiat. I think it fits the bill, but what do I know?
I have a jeweler I’ve known for years in NY I implicitly trust and she would put the ring together for me as per my specifications.
A few questions:
Is rose gold good for her skin color? She seems to like her rose gold bracelet. Should I go white gold? I know she doesn’t like yellow.
What diamond cut would you recommend? I know this has a cushion cut, but I could put anything in there.
What is an appropriate size? I was thinking in the 2-2.5 carat range. Is that too big, too small and too showy?
Given the rose gold, is it necessary to get a clear diamond or is something with more color okay?
Many thanks in advance for your help and I look forward to hearing from you.
