I recently picked out my engagement ring (haven''t received it yet)and I''m excited but nervous. Just hoping to get some people''s opinions on my choice. I wanted a colored diamond, so the jeweler ordered some canary and a brown diamond for me. I had told her I wanted a yellow diamond but she mentioned that those tend to be even more expensive than a colorless diamond. (I''m working with a $4000 budget.) I told her I had seen a few champagne diamonds that I liked and I would be interested in those too. As soon as I saw the brown diamond I fell in love. I thought that only happened to women with their wedding dresses. Its 3/4 carats and I had it set in a split shank yellow gold European band with sidestones going down half the band. I think its an elegant looking ring, but I''m afraid that its a bit too contemporary as an engagement ring. As soon as I have pictures I''ll post them, but if I could get some opinions on a colored diamond other than yellow as an engagement diamond? I''m just a little nervous about my choice.
