Hmm my requirements are:

White metal either Plat or palladium as I cannot wear white gold due to sensitivites and yellow gold and rose gold do not suit me

A coloured gemstone: A fancy coloured diamond or a ruby, spinel etc. Im not a white diamond girl.

Something antique/art deco looking with white melee to set-off the coloured gemstone.

Something with a semi-bezel or lots of prongs for protection- my cushion cut diamond has 8 equally spaced prongs.


Im very lucky that I got to choose my engagement ring as it has all of these features <3 and Im in love with it

I wanted white gold or platinum – not a fan of yellow gold and he doesnt like rose.

** We went with WG but it looks like I have an allergy to it or to the alloy it’s mixed with so we mght have to change to a platinum setting.

I also didnt want a simple solitaire, I like bling and wanted a bit more detail. I was also open to moissanite, diamond or sapphires.

I had to have a cushion! The other specs were wants.
