    @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/colle...r/rings/b4086100-trinity-de-cartier-ring.html
    https://www.cartier.com/en-us/colle...r/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.

    I think no refund, no purchase should apply equally to Cartier.

    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.


    Well done, and congratulations!
