Pave engagement ring with plain wedding band....

Anyone have any pics or know of PS''ers that have this combo?   I have a cushion halo with pave band and don''t know if we''ll be able to afford a pave band right now.  Most pave WB''s I''ve seen are $1700 and up. Blue Nile has one that''s $675 but it makes me wonder why its so low???...

Question about new engagement ring....

I recently got engaged.  My SMTR thread is here . We are looking at bands for me and I really want a matching band with the pave and milgrain.  We got a quote from Mark at ERD (he did the ER for us) and it was WAY out of our budget. I found this  wb on bluenile and it''s much more inl...

Another beauty from Mark at ERD!!!!!!!!

So my BF (now fiance!) finally popped the question last night. It was very sweet.  He asked me to go for a walk and suggested we go to a secluded path near his house...when we were deep in the woods, as we were talking and walking he just all of a sudden he was getting down on one knee and pull...

Jumpman - I can''t speak on your concerns regarding the culet but my boyfriend just popped the question last night with a beautiful 0.91 H SI1 picked out by Mark at ERD. I too was very nervous to go to an H and told Mark that but trusted him based on everything I had read here.   ...

Typical cost??

Does anyone know what I can expect to pay for a 14 or 18k WG 2.2 - 2.5mm WB with pave around 3/4 of the band?  The center stone in my ER is an H SI1 and will have a pave halo and band of similar color/clarity so I would do the same for the band.

I think it could be the lighting but in looking again I think it is also the shape of those pears!   But really, I don''t think you could go wrong with any of them.  The center stone could make anything look beautiful!   I also got a cushion from Mark at ERD and am now waiti...

If you really want it to be "THE" ring - take her ring shopping and have her show you what she likes! The style that she returns to time and time again is probably "IT".   I have several friends that weren''t involved at all and while they love their rings and their hubbies,...

1 pointers - how much do they cost???

In general how much do 1 pointers cost?  The color/clarity would be in the G/H, VS2/SI1 range.
