We were suppose to get engaged last night, but something came up beyond my control and I had to postpone it. I'm proposing tomorrow! But I wanted to share the final product with everyone.


Also, excuse my hairy fingers in the shots.

*NOTE:* In some of the pictures the diamond looks yellow, but I assure you it is very white. Some of the shots are taken in a bathroom with a huge sandstone granite counter-top and the diamond is picking up the hues and reflection of light from the granite.

After months of anticipation, Victor Canera has created my dream engagement ring! After researching cushions and custom settings for hours on end, and thanks to everyone who has previously posted about their experiences, we narrowed it down to Victor based on his level of craftsmanship and how perfect and attentive to the most miniscule details he was. I had so many concerns and questions and most likely drove Victor crazy, but he was so nice and reassuring, and the end product speaks for itself.

I wanted a micropave halo, but didn't like the standard design that was out there with the donut at the bottom, and the stems curving inward. I wanted all the stems to puff outward, more like a little pillow to compliment the cushion center stone, and I wanted them all to come to a single point on the band, eliminating the donut.

I also wanted my band to be eternity pave and Victor was really great about helping us figure out the sizing, as my e-ring won't allow for future changes. We bought another band that fit perfectly and mailed it to him, and the actual e-ring is the perfect size.

I also, like so many others on here, wanted the least amount of metal to show in the pave work, while still maintaining the ring's strength and durability. This was another HUGE reason we chose Victor--he uses the platinum mixture we wanted, (90/10 Iridium) and his rings are COMPLETELY hand-forged, which made us confident that the ring would have integrity while still keeping a delicate look.

Lastly, instead of having our rings engraved, we had our birthstones put inside the band as surprise stones. They are in my e-ring, as well as my eternity pave wedding band & will be in my fiance's wedding band as well--all made by Victor. I will post when I get it!

I havent posted here in a looong time, Ive been behaving myself nicely actually Well except for just this one thing... lol
I had grown tired of my 5 stone engagement ring and decided on a re-set. We just recently bought a new house so already that put me on a tighter budget. I contacted LOGR for a price on a custom design. I photoshopped a few photos of the design I had in mind, sent it to them and agreed on a price. They sent me photos from sketch to wax and it was cool to see it come to life. They didnt send me a photo after the setting was finished which i was a bit peeved about, I had to wait to see it in person. The whole process took about 2 weeks from sketch to opening the package. I have to say, I am VERY impressed. I've won a few auctions of theirs over the years and at times they arent always perfect but nice enough for the price IYKWIM. But this, WOW! As part of the deal I stated that all diamonds were to be bright, clear and not discoloured and if even one was "off" Id be returning it. I was kind of expecting something to remind me it was a LOGR ring but to be honest, the ring is heavy, all the diamonds are bright, the ring is well made and nothing is "off" so Im completely happy I took the plunge.
While I was expecting my diamonds to look a little bigger with a bezel and a halo, I wasnt quite prepared for how HUGE they look now in comparison! I have big fingers (size 9.25) and even as a 3 stone I get plenty of finger coverage which Im not yet used to... But that cant be a bad thing right? Might keep the diamond shrinkage at bay for a little longer...
I only have 3 photos at the moment (all of them taken with the main diamonds unset) so I'll get around to posting the compulsory hand shots soon hopefully They have been edited on my iphone so the colours are a little off, they are the only ones I have at hand though and Im busting to share.
The main diamond is 1.03ct - sides are half carat each

I saw a picture a few days ago of the Pear Bezel diamond ring with a prong set halo that you added, and I cannot get it out of my head! Simply gorgeous! I am a sucker for Pears x 100, especially with halos :) Do you have a thread on that particular ring that I could post questions on?! And if you have any more pictures of it laying around, I would absolutely LOVE to see them! :D :D :D

I'll add mine. My RHR for my 40th (from early July) from my hubby. I am a lucky girl (for lots of reasons) in that I had super small fingers so this ring is a size 4 1/4 so it looks a lot bigger on my hand. But here is my .65 oval ruby ring in 18K white gold with a pointy halo of 10 4 PT diamonds. I have always wanted a ruby in this style halo. It took me months to find it. I almost went the route of having it made but found this one and fell in love with it.
