Proposal story is over in LIW if you want to hear the details.

I don''t have a ton of pics right now but as soon as I have a sunny day I will come back and post those.

I haven''t seen the paperwork but I know the stone is a 1.05 carat H or I VS2 Square Cushion. FI told me that its an 8-main cushion. From what I understand its like a cushion on top with a RB pavilion (you PSers probably know better than I do). The setting is a custom job in platinum.

What''s really funny about this setting is that its a similar design to the Hearts on Fire Simply Bridal Leaf solitaire. That is the setting that my friend''s FI is getting for her engagement ring.

So enough babbling... here''s the first round of pics.

My mother trying her skills at the hand shots. The kitty is my very disgruntled tabby Emma.

Just for kicks, the HOF Simply Bridal Leaf solitaire. Strong resemblance but FI claims he has never seen that setting before.

Yup! I haven''t really gotten into it. I was 10 pages in when two Madeleine Wickham (aka Sophie Kinsella) books arrived from Amazon so I got a little sidetracked. Seems a bit slow in the start but I''ve liked all of Emily Giffin''s other books so I''m going to stick it out.

Of course I don''t mind! The lighting in our bedroom isn''t so great and I wasn''t excited about how dark they came out but the flash is worse. I took some more pics this morning and the sun is coming out so as soon as the family leaves and I can have a full on photo shoot I will throw up some more pictures.

The stone is SO fiery! I just need to figure out how to capture it... I wonder if I will be able to capture arrows since it has the 8-main pavilion or if you can only get that in a true RB.


I looked at the GIA report this morning. The stone is 6.06 mm square. There is allegedly a cloud right under the table and a feather in one of the corners that I can imagine is covered by a prong. I certainly cant see anything with my naked eye.

I am really excited to try on wedding bands with it. We won''t be getting married until 2010 so I have a lot of time to find the perfect one! We are going to NYC in December with my parents so I am really excited to go try on some Leon Mege bands! I

The sun is out! My parents are already rolling their eyes every time they catch me staring at my ring.

I managed to catch a couple of the arrows in this shot. At least I think thats what they are.

On our iron garden decoration. No flowers for flower shots this time of year.

This silver serving dish belonged to my great grandmother. I spent 2 hours on Wednesday polishing this piece a few others. If I had known I would be modeling my new engagement ring the next day I would have worn gloves! I still have tarnish and polishing paste stuck in my cuticles and under my nails.
