I found this site earlier today, and am so glad I did! I am getting engaged this spring to my bf of 5 years.
Finding and engagement ring that I LOVE is becoming quite the process!!!!!!!! 🙁
I need some help and advice about what I think is my final choice. I have decided to go with an asha Krupps cut stone (it’s like an emerald) in the 2.75 carat 9×7 and the setting I want to put it in is the timeless tapered baguettes in platinum :
Here’s the thing. This ring is my DREAMMMM ring. I have wanted a BIG gorgeous emerald type cut engagement ring since I first ever even thought about boys! 🙂
BUT, I’m concerned because I’m hearing that if you go with a simulant, bigger is not better. However, truly, no joke this is the size I want! My ring size is 6. Also, I adore jewellery and have lot’s of substantial pieces so, I think I can pull off the bigger centre. Lifestyle/employment wise, both my future fiancee and I make very good money. We could afford to get the same thing in a real diamond, but I think that it’s dumb to spend that much on just a ring! I mean my DREAM ring would be around $40,000!!!!
The most the bf and I were looking to spend on the engagement ring is 13,000. In that price range, I am not finding my dream ring – seriously, I think many of the ones in that price range are nice, but I’m not really ecstatic about them, and when I saw the asha, I thought hey this is my dream ring and it looks real.
Any advice? Has anyone bought or seen the asha emerald or Krupps cut in person? Is 9×7 just ridiculous or should I even care? If it’s bigger, does it look fake in the sense that it looks less sparkly and more plastic-ey??????
By The Way, from what I read on the boards so far about asha, people were really happy, but some of the posts are old so I could pull up the pictures.
PS , really love these boards so far!
