Tonight we did some Blue Nile browsing and got the credit approval so we can do the 12 months interest free (we have the money, but it seems more practical to finance at 0%)
I think this is going to be the one. I can probably do up to 1.25 carats within our budget, but i’m not sure that I need that much ring. Thoughts?

@LeenieBee: I like it. I say you’ll have it forever so splurge a bit (within your means of course)

Georgeous ring. I would go smaller because of the halo, seems like 1.25 would be a lot. But it’s hard to argue against more sparkly! I think on that style (halo and narrow band) 1ct would look best. I actually don’t really like the look of huge rings. Also depends on the wedding band you plan to purchase; if it’s one with diamonds, the bigger engagement ring centre stone would seem like too much, whereas not so much with a plain band.
Definitely a good idea for the 12 months payment!

I tend to agree about the 1 carat. When I’ve tried on rings, I seem to like the 1 carat before I even know what carat size the ring is.
I still can’t believe it. This is why I’m still awake. It’s been such a long time coming. I’m 33 and we’ve been together 3 years. Before him, I’d never made it to a year with a SO. Being a late bloomer is making this that much more exciting 🙂
