Hi all,

When we got engaged, we had no extra money for luxuries like an engagement ring, so for the last five and a half years I have just been wearing a simple band. Well I saved our pennies and decided that getting my ring would be possible. I looked at many, many all diamond engagement rings (which led me to Pricescope!) and I realised that a diamond of the size I wanted was out of my reach.

Then I saw this ring! I fell in love with the setting and decided that down the road, I could get a diamond to replace the aquamarine. Well when I went to the store they had all diamond rings in this same design and they just looked very boring to me, more sparkle than an aquamarine, but no contrast so the design kind of disappeared. I doubt I will ever replace the aquamarine now (unless it gets damaged, and then with another aquamarine, or perhaps a pale sapphire.)

So this ring was a long time in the waiting, but definitely worth it. I absolutely love it! I also love that it is unconventional as an engagement ring.

The pictures do not do it justice, the diamonds are very scintillating IRL.

It is platinum with a 1.05ct aquamarine and .91 tcw of diamonds, G colour and VVS in clarity.

Thanks for looking, I will post more pictures after this one.

I wish you well,

Bridget

Oh, and the diamonds do not look at all yellow. The lighting is doing that.

That is very beautiful. I'm glad you love it. I'm a coloured person myself so I'm always glad to see another person with a coloured stone e-ring.

That's a lovely ring. I originally looked at something like that ring, but it looks much better with the blue in the middle. It's such a nice colour

I love aquas!!! It's my fiancee' birthstone. One day I am thinking of getting her a set including earrings, a hair pin, necklace and bracelet.

A very close friend of mine just got engaged as well...with, you guessed it, an aquamarine solitare set in plat with bead set diamonds around the band...it is very striking.

Thank you for all the wonderful compliments on my ring. I sprained my thumb on Wednesday so when my left hand stops resembling Mickey Mouse's left hand, I will take some pictures of it on my hand : ) Being a fairly new poster, should I just add pictures to this thread or start a new one?

I wish you well,

Bridget

Bridget...

What a beautiful Ring. If I am not mistaken, Tiffany's does something very similar with a Sapphire in the center. If I find the link I will post it for you.

Congratulations!

I have never seen an aqua with such a beautiful color--it's like a perfect blue sky!

Hi Matatora, those earrings are just beautiful! I love the Victoria collection. One day I will have the matching earrings, probably I would choose to get the pendant first. Maybe for an upcoming anniversary. I do have small ears and I wonder if the earrings will not be too overwhelming for me, that''s why I would choose the pendant first. I can always wear a plain pair of studs with the pendant. Thanks for letting me know about these, I can always drool over them : )

I wish you well,

Bridget

I have short earlobs. A blessing when buying studs. I have these earrings with the aquamarine rounds, as that is my birthstone. I adore them, though I do not wear them often becuase I am in college and they are a bit much for day wear when working with small children.
What sort of wedding band do you wear with your ring?

I don''t wear my Victoria ring everyday, basically when I need a pick me up or special occassions. It makes it seem more special then when I do wear it and admire how beautiful it is. I work as an Office Manager and I sometimes have to go out in the warehouse and I find it just a bit much. When I wear my Victoria ring I wear a 2mm Lucida platinum band with it. On other days I wear this wedding ring. It''s beautiful, but not too much for everyday wear.

I wish you well,

Bridget
