My heart skipped a beat when I saw it. I’d already upgraded to my diamond engagement ring, although it needed a little work from a jeweler (I wanted to replace the head because I didn’t like the prongs, wanted a slightly larger stone, etc.) because we got it on a whim due to price. I wasn’t looking for a new engagement ring, honest, but I happened upon one online and I’m not kidding when I said my heart skipped a beat. I couldnt stop staring, it was the *perfect* setting that I’d always dreamed of in my mind but rarely saw and I just had to have it. I was crushed thinking I’d have to let it go because I already had a ring, but after I did the math I figured out that it was slightly less to buy this ring outright than all the repairs on the other ring would be! So I got it and it hasn’t left my finger since.
to help you, mine is a .48 ct Radiant (not my first choice, but the shape is growing on me since I was so set on princess) with 1 smaller emerald cut diamond, 2 tapered baguettes and 2 tiny rounds on either side. Like the one you picked my radiant is an H color I1 stone, and it’s honestly gorgeous. I can’t see the flaws from the top, only from underneath and other odd angles, so it doesn’t bother me at all…I’m sure if it was next to a better stone it’d show it’s true nature but that isn’t likely lol.
