After months of research and consulting what felt like a million experts, I sent my SO an email full of what I thought were the perfect specs for me. And then, after months of anticipation, he FINALLY proposed! Of course, he listened to NOTHING I said :wall:

BUT...oh my, did he completely EXCEED anything I could have hoped for and am over the moon :love:
Unfortunately, my iphone pictures don't do it justice but here's some shots!

He won't give away the specs...but after the amount of research I did I can tell a couple things...

~2ct
Ideal or Excellent cut...its the most sparkly thing I've even seen!
G color or better
Looks just about flawless looking through my little home loupe

Thanks everyone!!! It's such an exciting time and I kinda can't stop staring at this gift, it really is so stunning.

I'd told him that I was far more concerned with quality than size. And that "cut is king", the common mantra here on PS! Other specs I'd hoped for were G/H color, eye clean SI1. I feel like I might have an E or F, I honestly can't see even a hint of color. He was so excited to have done this on his own (though I hope he got the cut info from me :dance: ), that it added even that much more to receiving this gorgeous ring.

Stunning. It looks bigger! And, of course, the background is just as good!

How do you know he done good if he will not give you the stats - that tells me he has a little secret and cost came into it and cut is not king - but it looks nice on your hand congrats

That is rude. First cut is king. How do you know he has a secret, you don't- and implying you do is disrespectful. If she like's the color, can't see inclusions, and it sparkles like crazy- one would like to think she knows what she like's without the exact specs. At least you had the class to say congrats and it looks good on her hand. That's all I've got. SMH

First of all, thank you to everyone for your kind words! It's so exciting to be able to share this with you all and have you all be so positive about my new jewelry! :clap:

As far as how I know he did good...let me count the reasons. First and foremost, I trust him and believe that he understood that quality was the most important thing to me. Secondly, I can see it and know that is great and unfortunately can't get across just how stunning this beauty is in iphone pictures! Lastly, there are a million other reasons I know that don't need to be detailed here. :wavey:

Thank you so much! And not at all...I'm between a 4 and 4.25 but the ring size is a 4.25.

To me, the proportions are spot on with the pave band and the size of the center. I just love it! The first picture you posted is my favorite of the diamond. So pretty! :love: Congratulations and best of luck with your wedding planning.
