So after dropping all kind of hints, she still didn't see the fake rose. lol So what I did was pull the fake rose from the bouquet, and dropped to one knee revealing the ring and asked her to marry me.

Her first reaction was overwheled crying, nodded yes, but the first words she could muster were "I look horrible!!!" lol

I was just coming here to say I bought a 1.2 M for about $1600 so I think your price is good, and then I was going to say the ring is beautiful.

Now I see I’m late!!! It looks AMAZING on her hand :kiss2::kiss2:

I love stories like this! My goodness that ring looks perfect on her! I love everything about it. It truly suits her and the best part, you knew it would! Congratulations!
Thanks. I actually enlisted her best friend, that she's known since she was 7 in choosing the ring. I did have a general idea, and she helped me make the final decision from the rings I was looking at

Thanks again all!!! I just ran my (her?/our?) GIA cert through Rare Carat they estimate a fair price for my stone would be $2460!!, More than 1K over what I paid!! And this has been the low end of the calculators, though probably the most accurate, since it's pulling info right from the certifcate. The biggest knocks were it being too deep, and symmetry rated as good, but I even in magnifaction, I don't see the symmetry issues, and I think the setting I chose, where the diamond sits significantly above the band, allowing more light from the bottom. helped with the depth.

Easy to see just based off of the initial price I was concerned I bought a dud. lol




This stone cost $1440, which seems extremely cheap. My future fiance's chief diesires for an engagement ring were emerald cut (likes how it matches her nail beds), and rose gold (likes how it looks against her skin). With the rose gold setting, I felt fine going with a warmer stone. At S1, you can see from that it's eye clean. Is there something I am missing why this stone would be this price? Or did I get a good deal?

Proof that fancy cut diamonds cannot be evaluated (or eliminated) based upon specs, cert numbers, and paper, alone!!
Super happy you’re satisfied, and were able to get such a sweet deal on your EC, and setting!!
Congratulations, again!! ♥
