First, a big big big thank you to everyone on Pricescope who offers so much knowledge and advice. This forum has been so helpful to us on our search for an engagement ring. When my fiancé proposed five months ago, he gave me a promise ring that I could wear on my right hand and he told me that together, we could pick out the engagement ring for the left hand. He knew I didn’t know anything about jewelry, but knew that I would still be particular once I started researching it. And he was right. : ) So, that brought us to pricescope, where I found Victor Canera and GOG. This is a love letter to these two vendors – Victor and Good Old Gold both endured what must have been 100’s of emails from us before ever even receiving a cent. And both of them were just fantastic. Thank you, thank you, thank you. After five months of research and planning, we have a ring and I’m a happy girl.

Thanks for all the nice comments. :) Here's some photos of the two birthstones on the inner shank. I also got to have some flower shots because when my fiance picked up the ring he also picked up some flowers so it was good timing! I'll try to get some hand shots for you and also find the specs sheet from GOG.

Re: Engagement Ring-thank you thank you thank you Victor Can

Thank you everyone for the nice comments! I love the little girl too. : ) She's old too - like 12 years old almost, but still looks like a kitten. Funny how cats never seem to age.

Here are the stone stats:

It's a Good Old Gold graded "Hearts and Arrows" cut RB
GIA graded
1.7 carats
7.69 x 7.72 mm
G color
SI2 -- but eye clean! Just two twinning wisps. Patrick Davis (LA appraiser) thought it was an SI1 or VS2
Cut / Polish / Symmetry: Ex/Ex/Ex
Fluor: Faint
Table 55%
Crown 35 degrees
Pavilion 40.8
Depth 61.6
HCA 1.5
AGS 0 (according to GOG's Sarin estimate)

The stone interestingly looks like it has more 'depth' now that it's set than it did before it was loose, which is odd to me but good. It also appears more colorless / whiter than it did when it was loose (loose it looked more like H colored). Anyway, I am very happy with the stone, in particular the light performance. :appl: Also very happy with GOG's lifetime upgrade / return policy as well.
