After a long time with the BF, I finally got it.
I picked it out. It was the ring I always wanted since I was a little girl.
I am hoping that it is a good ring for the price. I am getting it appraised on Wednesday (3/11/09) of next week.
It is an EGl-USA certified (I''m a little nervous about that, but reading on here... I expect the ring to appraise with the color and maybe the clarity to be slightly different than the certificate states.)

Here are the specs for the center stone:

Weight 1.05 CT
Shape MARQUISE BRILLIANT01
Color F
Clarity VS1
Measurements 9.41 x 5.5 x 3.39 mm
Depth 61.6%
Table 60%
Crown 12.5%
Pavilion 42.9%
Crown Angle 32.7°
Pavilion Angle 40.8°
Girdle MEDIUM TO VERY THICK FACETED
Polish GOOD
Symmetry GOOD
Fluorescence NONE
Culet NONE
Cut Grade N/A
Comments
UGS Appraisal Value N/A


here is a pic: (I tried getting different angles - this is my first taking pictures of a ring at all, so excuse me if I am not getting the right angles)
it''s 14k white gold, with the trillions totaling .58 F VS2
I paid $5,800 for the ring, please tell me that I didn''t get screwed...

thank you everybody!
I ended getting a slightly "fatter" marquise than the ideal 2:1 ratio. I know that with my ratio that I have a more noticeable bow tie effect, but I honestly wanted the fatter stone with the trillions. The skinnier "ideal ratio" marquise didn''t look as good, to me anyways, with the trillions.

Shamelessly bumping my thread.
I have very good news - the appraiser that I went to - Jeff from Metro Jewelers (he was wonderful btw, and would recommend him to anybody in the Boston area), said that my ring matched the specs on the EGL certificate to a "tee". He did say the marquise could maybe be a G, but everything else matched up. I am so relieved!
