We’ve been kind of all over the place with rings but just yesterday I found out his mom gifted him a OEC stone that had been in the family since about 1911 so we could have it set! I had been leaning towards an emerald cut since I love the step cut and vintage look. But I think an OEC will be perfect!!! Love that it’s a family piece. I knew I wanted baguettes if possible so today we went to a store and saw an estate piece that was a platinum setting with baguettes and they said it should work with my stone! Eek! My boyfriend was surprisingly decisive and said “if that’s what you want let’s get it!” (I think he’s tired of looking at rings! Lol.). It should be ready in about a week but I know he wants to wait to talk my dad in person in July to ask me. Here are some pics!!
The stone as currently set in a pearl clasp with emeralds (which we’re not using) They think the diamond is about .9 carats but hard to say when set like this.
A ring I tried on that will look similar to mine when done (but mine will be smaller. I think this was 1.5 ct)
