I feel like I can join the cool girls’ club now! Got engaged on Easter while in Paris with this beautiful ring. .61ct, K, VVS. Try and ignore the knuckle hair! Thanks!
I don’t know THAT much about illusion settings, or the specs regarding this ring (or any ring), so any opinions on the quality or style are welcome!
Also please feel free to share pics of your illusion set rings!

Congratulations! What a beautiful ring, and Paris too- lucky girl!<br />Was it a family heirloom? Or do you know the story behind it?
I have a 1940’s illusion set Engagement Ring too! Must have been popular in that time. My stone itself is pretty small (only about 1/8 carat) but in certain lighting, the illusion really does look like part of the stone and it seems to double in size! Either way, I just really like the look of it, adds a lot of interest.<br />

BrittanyErin: thanks! I love yours, too. It’s not a family heirloom. I was getting burnt out looking at pretty modern rings at all the big jewelry stores and not finding the “one”. My friend suggested a bit rage jewelry shop in my town and we strolled in one day. I never thought I’d want a “used” ring, but I love thing ring WAY more than all the new ones. I don’t know the story behind it (I hope it comes with good energy!), but inside it is inscribed with “HAPPINESS”, so I like to think that it came from a loving relationship years ago. It’s fun to think that it made someone so happy a long time ago, and now it’s my turn to enjoy it. It’s really a fun style, isn’t it!? And I love the idea of making the stone bigger in an alternative way (as oppose to the trendy (but pretty!) halo style.
