    I'm tearing up, and I'm at work! Darn you lyn_ny and your beautiful story! :love:
    :appl:
    A HUGE congratulations on your engagement, what a beautiful couple you two make. I can't get over your story, thank you very much for sharing, made me very soppy and sentimental. :twirl:

    Oh, and what a beautiful ring! I just love warmer coloured diamonds in rose gold, and yours is just gorgeous. One of the most beautiful rings I've seen here and definitely my current favourite!

    I'm waiting on an Infinity N in rose gold myself so I might be biased, but I think your little story made it just that bit more special to look at. :love:

    Lin, your ring turned out SO beautifully - it truly does look perfect on your lovely hand, I really do love everything about it! I totally agree that the bezel adds a nice bit of hand presence - I really enjoyed your proposal story and am very happy for you both! :appl:

    Firstly, AHHHHHH JEWEL OF THE WEEK! SO EXCITING! So honoured. :appl:

    gem - this ring wasn't possible without you. thank you again for everything. you were WONDERFUL to buy from. couldn't have been a better experience for two nervous newbies. you're the best!!

    arkieb1 - thank you so much. i love all of it, but gallery is definitely my fav. part!

    Daisyoz - thank you kindly!

    mochiko42 - feminine & vintage - what a perfect way to describe it. thank you!

    Laila619 - thank you so much for the kind words!

    lorrissey - i was going for 'pretty' but 'stunning' surpasses my wildest dreams! so thank you!

    madelise - firstly, thank you so much, bww here i come!!!! and secondly, ummm wait a second! YOU'RE killing meeeeee without pics of your beautiful ring! i'll forgive you for now, but seriously, i'm dying. :knockout:

    Acinom - thank you so much!

    lknvrb4 - thanks! :))

    kalomeli - hahahhah that's what i was going for - majestic! hahaha! i wish it glowed like that every second. that would either be awesome or very very distracting!!

    motownmama - seriously?! what a compliment! thank you so much!

    mary poppins - thank you kindly!

    kathley - i was hoping the facets would come across in the photos. it's really nothing like what you see in person, but i'm glad you think so! thank you!!

    missy - awwww.... reminiscent of your proposal! that is so wonderful! perhaps you could share the story sometime! thank you for your well-wishes. very sweet of you!

    bastetcat - thank you so much! i will be going for a 'bastetcat-esque' stack so i'm gonna thank you in advance for the inspiration! yours is definitely one of my favs! i want a single stone and a VC band - how will i ever decide?! halp me! lol!

    missymoo - thank you!!! i will do my best to find a way to take some inventive pics! i feel so limited with my camera phone! it's actually near banff, but isn't lake louise. we wanted to go up there but it was gonna be too cold & snowing. so we decided against it. very observant of you! hehe!

    nowicanseethemoon - thank you kindly. and you're right about him!!

    minousbijoux - i know, right??!?! so cool that you've been around to see my progession. ultimately, i'm super happy with where i landed. and i couldn't imagine a blue sapphire halo on my finger... so i guess it all works itself out! and thank you re: the pic. it was cold. there are some other pics with my hair blowing wildly - pretty hilarious.

    SB621 - thank you sooo much! means a lot coming from you with your beautiful rock! :))

    Diamondless - thank you!!!

    Wow, this is beautiful. I love the proportions on your finger. Do you know the dimensions of your stone, and the dimensions of the halo? What size ring finger do you have?

    This ring is just so beautiful. I adore rose gold, antique diamonds, and a thin milgrain bezel. The under gallery is stunning. Perfection! Really fantastic!!

    thanks again for the lovely comments. :oops:

    I just bought an ultrasonic cleaner for my jewelry and took a few pretty pictures after cleaning so I thought I'd share.

    it's so hard to really capture the facets with my cell phone camera... you just don't get the on/off like you see in person. often get the darkness in the centre! obstruction? reflection of my dark purple phone case? who knows. :confused: either way this baby has tons of fire!

    Wow. That is a stunner.

    Can I just ask please (as I'm looking at an OEC or two around that size...), what is your ring size? Totally gorgeous stone and setting. Really lovely and definitely one of the best on here - not to offend anyone, this ring is just more my style. :)

    Thank you so much. :)) Diameter was estimated around 6.72-6.82mm and 1.3 ct which may or may not be completely accurate because it was appraised while set. This makes it fairly deep at around 65% depth - other 1.3s may face up quite a bit larger than this one. Just wanted to give you some perspective as far as the size goes. My finger is a 4.25!

    Thank you thank you! We're very happy! :praise:

    This is a very belated reply but thank you so much. :))

    I do what I can. :lol:

    Yes I do have skinny skeletor fingers! No, no you couldn't get away with that kind of flattering compliment! Seriously! Pricescope is the only place you wanna have skeletor fingers! :lol:

    Once again, belated reply... but thank you! I am really, really enjoying it! Getting so many compliments and loving the times I'm in Walmart especially! :lol: Lighting in there is really fantastic!
