by ClemsonPurdue » Aug 10, 2018 I had a post on here before but, from where I started to where I am now, so much has changed. I decide to start over with a new thread. I’m looking for a modern, striking, unique look. I have shorter size 8 fingers. I really like the way the below ring looks on my hand. The rectangular diamond seemed to lengthen my fingers. The engagement band in the picture is 4.5 mm at thickest and tapers to 2.5 mm. I think this needs a simpler wedding band that fits tighter against the engagement ring. I’m planning to have David Klass do my setting. I need to figure out the setting design and find the perfect diamond. Total budget is $16,000 max. I want the radiant cut to be somewhere around 6 x 8 mm. I’d like no lower than H color, 100% eye clean SI1 and up, and close to 2 carats. Here is a setting which was previously recommended and I really like. I would have DK make matching band. I’ll be calling DiamondsbyLauren on Monday. https://www.jamesallen.com/mobile/e...d-inspired-diamond-engagement-ring-item-41042 Any diamonds or settings that you all would recommend? I understand from another thread to ask for ASSET images and to look for images with a lot of red. Any other suggestions for what to look for? I’m just super nervous that I’m not going to get a good diamond with buying online and not being able to see in person. I’m also working with a local jeweler who is going to bring in 4 radiant cuts for me to look at next week. But I’m guessing going through a store I’ll pay way more?
