Re: Mother JEALOUS of my ring...?

Mogster, the ring is GORGEOUS!!! And the cloud mobile proposal?! Adorable! Like everyone else, I'm appalled at what your mother is saying. I can't imagine how hurtful this must be to you, when you just want to be able to celebrate with the people you love. I haven't even officially started ring shop...

Re: OMB Cusion from ERD, Halo Setting by Steven Kirsch

This is my dream ring!! Thank you so much for posting. It's truly stunning. Did you talk to ERD about settings as well? Wondering why you decided to go with SK for the setting, and if there was any awkwardness in buying just the stone from ERD (sans setting). I've heard stories on here of certain ve...

Re: BF asked about rings!!

@centralsquare - Yeah, especially since I don't think he realizes how much research I've already done! No secrets or anything, but he may have been a little overwhelmed if I immediately blurted out "1.5-2 carat antique cushion, SI1 or better, H or better color, in a Harry Winston-inspired micrp...

BF asked about rings!!

It's lame to get so excited about every little step forward, but I can't help it! You girls are contagious!!! :) Last night, we were talking about a friend of mine who just got back together with a boyfriend who won't propose to her. They've been together for 8 years and she moved to Chicago from Bo...

Re: Spending so much of your BF's money

I've been thinking about this...we're not ring shopping yet, but I think I might insist on paying for the setting and let him get the diamond. That way, if I choose a $5k custom halo setting, I don't have to feel too guilty about it. :twirl: Plus, it's definitely important to him to feel like he pai...

Re: Ever feel like shopping together ruins the surprise?

Agreed with what a lot of others are saying...for us, it's much more practical for me to be involved. He's the money manager in our relationship, but I'm the researcher. I plan out the specs of all our other big purchases...why not the ring? We haven't started shopping yet, but my approximate plan i...

Re: Hi from NYC: My search for "The One!"

@thebunnybears - I totally agree! Starting from scratch in a new place has brought us even closer together, and demonstrated how much we can trust each other. Glad we both have such great guys!! :) And YES, the AVCs are soooo gorgeous! I never even gave a second glance at diamonds before finding Pri...

Re: Hi from NYC: My search for "The One!"

Exactly! We started with 2 years, and now a year into it, it looks like at least another 2. I think I'm more likely to be the determining factor at this point, though. We moved here for his job, but starting in a year he'll have the opportunity to work from Chicago again, and he's unlikely to switch...

Re: X-sized diamond now or twice as big in a year?

So, unless something terrible happens to diamond prices/us, we'll be ordering a lovely new I VS2 in two weeks! We found a stone that we both liked, inside the price window we both were comfortable with, and close to the 8x6 mm size we both thought looked appropriate on my 4-4.5 finger. Excited and ...

Re: Hi from NYC: My search for "The One!"

@MissStepcut - Hahaha! My bf and I have the "we ARE moving back in 2 years, right?" talk all the time. He still owns his condo in Chicago, so that's my insurance to make sure we get back there. :) The sturdiness of the thin band is definitely a factor! I love the look, but don't want to co...

Hello, ladies!! So glad to have found this wonderful community! I just signed up for the LIW list today, so here's my story: I'm 25 and the bf is 27. We've been together 2.5 years and living together for 1 year of that. We had a very close, solid relationship pretty early on, and our first big commi...
