Hi all! Longtime lurker here wanting to express my gratitude for this board. It''s been such a source of support for me throughout the anxiety-ridden, emotional rollercoaster that has been my LIW period. Thankfully, I think I''m getting close to the end! BF and I received in the mail yesterday three family diamonds from my mom that will be used to create my e-ring. I don''t have the specs beyond the carat weights: center stone .51 ctw, side stones about 1/3 ctw each, all round brilliants. I plan to have them appraised, but regardless of the outcome, the sentimental value of these stones is immeasurable. The largest of the three was in the e-ring my dad proposed to my mom with in 1972. The others were a pair of diamond studs he gave her on their 10th wedding anniversary. My parents are no longer together, but they were happily married for 20 years and I have a close relationship with both of them. I feel that these gifts were given with great love back then, and I will be honored to wear them.
My vision is to have a 3 stone bezel set ring designed in white gold. Something similar to the image below. What do you think?
BF and I have been back and forth over the past 2 years about the timeline of our engagement/ wedding. Me of course chomping at the bit
Anyone else getting close???
