Hullo!

This is my first post so I’m not sure if I’m posting in the right place (was trying to put it into the engagement ring folder). I’ve learned a lot from PriceScope and decided to join mostly to share the results and also to give an example to other people interested in yellow gold prongs! I will likely reach out when it comes time to get a wedding band to match

First of all thank you for all your wisdom and the information posted.
I’m in Canada and could not find a store that carried diamonds cut so precisely. I am so happy I was so picky because the stone is so clear and sparkly. Honestly even with the US to Cnd conversion BG was still the better price for the size and quality. My colleagues and friends are blown away. I initially selected a J color stone to get more size but was advised in order to achieve the contrast between the prongs and diamond I should go for an H, which is what I did.

I wasn’t keen on the Tiffany style because I wanted a really low set style with pointy claw prongs but I love it! The prongs are less prominent that what I envisioned but no complaints here.

1.4 H on 5.5-5.75 finger (ring is sized 5.75 and a touch loose which is what I wanted). When I swell, I swell to 6 or so!

Congratulations! Such a beautiful and classic choice and it looks lovely on your hand! Great pics too! And I feel your pain with the swelling....I’m also a 5.5 at the base of my finger but size up to 5.75 or 6 to allow for swelling and my knuckle (which is a solid 6).

Congrats! Beautiful ring. I always like yellow gold but can’t seem to get away from platinum for my e-ring. Any side profile pics?

This is one of my all-time fave looks -- a firebomb on a simple yellow gold band! I love it!!

:oops2: I really appreciate the compliments! The man is really proud of the results too haha. I look forward to waking up so I can put it on again! I already scratched up the underside of the band though :( but I guess that’s real life. Too bad I can’t just stick a piece of clear plastic tape on it to protect it :roll2:

Looks lovely on you! Consider those scratches ‘character’ and a record of your wearing and enjoying your ring!

Congrats on your engagement! Really pretty diamond and shine bright like a diamond.
Love how you wanted a simple but nice setting in which the center stone is the main attraction on your ring finger. :lol:

=)2 Thank you! I clean it all the time. I wonder how long I’ll keep it up for haha. My fiancée said now only if you’ll stretch and exercise as often as you clean your diamond. To which I replied if my yoga mat had diamonds in it I would stretch more :roll2:

I’ve had my e-ring diamond (until I upgraded it this month) since 2016 and still clean it at least once a week. It’s soothing and man does she sparkle like crazy after a bath.

There is no match in my book that compares to a perfect and beautiful solitaire... Congratulations on your engagement!
