Hello everyone! I''m more of a lurker than a poster, but I did have some help with this diamond on here so I wanted to post my ring and say thanks to everyone for their help!! Long story short my fiance (I love that name!!) knows I''m a researcher so he put me on the hunt to fine someone reputable. We only live about 2 hours north of the NYC Diamond District but I didn''t think that I could trust anyone there, nor did I think I could get a deal. Anyhow, I found this site and Mark Turnowski and thought I''d email him to see what he had with what we were looking for.....I love radiant cut - but it had to be beautiful, sparkle and have LOTS of fire! So, I emailed him with basics and he sent me a picture and some specs. In the meantime after Mark found my "little beauty" as he called it, but at that time we decided to hold off on the ring as we were talking about houses and expenses, etc. We decided to call Mark off on the diamond so he called Mark and told him that we''d be in touch when we were ready.

Well.....then we go to San Francisco for a short vacation with his two sisters and their significant others (who knew about everything!). Little did I know that he hadn''t called off Mark and in fact took a trip down there to finalize a ring!!! So, we went on a winery tour on Saturday and then on the way back we had to go over the Golden Gate Bridge to get to San Francisco. We stopped at this park that looks over the bridge WAY up high. Well, I''m scared of heights, I mean panic attack scared. As we were going up this road that winds back and forth I was literally having a panic attack saying I had to get off the bus!! We finally got there and pulled in (picture the scene with Thelma & Louise that''s how it felt pulling in!
) He said to me, come take one picture and then we can go. Off the bus I went holding his hand with weak knees!!! So we walk towards this cliff and he''s holding me around my shoulders from behind so tight. He starts saying the sweetest things to me and starts crying. So tactfully I said "ARE YOU CRYING?"
Still not noticing what was going on. He said to me "I have to get a tissue, I don''t want anyone to see my crying". When he let go of me I took the opportunity to turn around and he was down on one knee asking me to marry him - well honestly, neither of us can remember if he actually said it or not, but everyone there - even the tourists were clapping and yelling!!! It was SOOOO sweet!
Nobody could hear what we were saying because they were far enough to take pictures of the whole thing and one of his sisters yelled "so what''s your answer?" So I yelled YES!!!


Anyhow here''s the best picture of my ring I could get. I have to read some info on here about how to take better pics cause most of them stunk!

HI:

Pics may be too large or you need to rename the file. But MORE please, I have old eyes and need close ups!


cheers--Sharon

Ring looks gorgeous.

You may be getting an error on the pictures because it must have a unique file name. Try adding random numbers to the end of the name, that always works for me.

Ok here are some pics - I think I''m getting used to my camera and taking some close up shots - pardon my DRY hands! I decorate cakes and wash them all day long and don''t get to the lotion until I get home. Pardon the spec of dirt on the diamond in pic #4, I didn''t notice it in person!!!

I''m just in love with my ring!!


Thanks everyone for looking!
