A513804B-DD15-42EC-8C6F-34FBB47BAB48.jpeg This is actually the one I am looking at. The trinity with 5 small diamonds in it. Figure I can still do the mirror scratch speech with it at L’aperouse cause this one has some rocks in it. Been talking with Cartier and the shop at the Champs Elysses has it on hold for me in 6.5. The rub is they DO NOT do refunds if she decides she doesn’t like it. Can exchange it for a different size or for something else in the store... but no refunds on purchases. So that’s another gamble. At least it’s inky a $3k gamble and not a $10k one. Oh and they said they will most likely be closed on Sat for protests so would have to do any size changes or engravings on Sunday. What do y’all think of this one? Is it better without the diamonds?
@Corely I have been quietly following your journey and I am really happy that you were able to get a refund and start fresh (hopefully with the help of this community) once you and your SO are ready to purchase an engagement ring.

I am certain that your trip to Paris will be magnificent and I love your Cartier trinity/classic band idea. That said, I would advice you that you stick with the classic design and forgo the diamonds. The price hike just doesn’t seem justifiable considering that you have another upcoming purchase and knowing that your fiancé-to-be doesn’t even like warm metals and that the purchase will be non-refundable, if she doesn’t like it.

My suggestion would be that you go with the small or the classic versions:
https://www.cartier.com/en-us/collections/jewelry/collections/trinity-de-cartier/rings/b4086100-trinity-de-cartier-ring.html
https://www.cartier.com/en-us/collections/jewelry/collections/trinity-de-cartier/rings/b4052700-trinity-de-cartier-ring.html

That way, if she wants to exchange it for something else, you are likely to find other alternatives and not feel like you have to stick to the higher price. The $1k price difference can go toward her center stone.

Success from Paris! Forgive all the pictures of non FC745573-1073-4FC1-B9F3-55245A886E36.jpeg ring gen stone stuff. Just thought y’all might want to see the fruits of everyone’s efforts inland what we look like haha. She said yes!!! That is the important thing. She loves the Carrier ring. But size is a bit off. Tried to go back today but they closed due to protests so going tomorrow to look at other options. Oh... they o courage scratching the famous mirrors at Lapergouse. You can see dates etchings from ththe 1800’s 1940’d and throughly time bits a history of love proclamation. It was always about nostalgia and history and a permanent story in history. Not to prove the thing is real. Her 10 year is of daughter can take her grandchildren to this restaurant and see out etchings from the night I proposed in this timeless mirrors. Oh and the food was absolutely amazing. But. We didn’t scratch the mirrror with the ring. But with a knife instead. Going to look at ring options and exchanges tomorrow but she may keep this one in a different size. Thanks again to all of you for your help and guidance!!

I was wondering about you guys today!! What an awesome update. Congratulations! The dinner looked so cool, a pyramid of French fries. :lol-2:

I think the trinity ring looks beautiful on her! How fun to go back and either get the right fit or settle on a wedding band (or whatever you decide).

Congrats, again, and have a very Merry Christmas!

These photos are awesome! You're a beautiful looking family, and that food looks AMAZING! The whole idea and presentation is so romantic and lovely - hoping the exchange on the ring happens without a hitch and so pleased you're going to find your girl a diamond and setting of which she can be truly proud.

Congratulations!

Omg, love it all! My favorite pic is the tower of French fries for her daughter. I love it when fancy restaurants don’t take themselves too seriously!

You went from a wonky to a timeless classic that'll never go out of style.
My Cartier trinity from the early 90's.
