H and I had an appointment yesterday at a jeweler we got a referral to from a very close friend of mine. We weren''t intending on buying anything, but we did!!!! I wasn''t allowed to take pictures
But I think he will be proposing on his trip up to see me in May! They have to do a little bit of work on it, sizing and changing the head on it.


It is very delicate only 2mm, and the shank has marquise shapes with a tiny RB in pave in each little shape. With milgrain around the edges. We ended up getting a diamond which was a shock to me! It is a .41 RB G/SI2 if I remember correctly. But with the band being so tiny, the diamond looks pretty amazing I think! I always worried with my large finger size, nothing would look quite substantial, but the tiny band actually makes my fingers look a little more thin and the diamond pop.

I think I may look for pictures of something similar to post tomorrow or Tuesday when I get home. But I just couldn''t wait any longer to share with you all! We are both so happy and just keep looking at each other with googly eyes saying "I love you" and "I get to marry you"!

Thank you all! We purchased from Iowa Diamond. Today is a sad one because we have to leave the hotel and go back to our respective cities/states. Hopefully the next 4 weeks will be short and sweet until he comes up to visit me and meet my family! Can''t wait to go looking for some pictures to post for you all of similar looking rings!

Well it was a very long drive home. So I went to the one ring I already had bookmarked that is similar to the one we got. Maybe tomorrow I will look a bit more, but as all of us are so fluent in what is out there, it isn''t a huge puzzle to figure out with one picture and a description.

MY ring
, is similar to this one with the following exceptions. It is only a half eternity, I believe there were 3 marquise shapes on each side of the center stone. The RB in pave is not quite as big as the ones shown here. And I had the generic 4 prong head switched out to be a basket. I cannot wait to see the final piece, and with having the head changed, there will still be a bit of surprise to what the ring is going to look like!

Only 4 weeks until I see H again, and hopefully that ring


Oh, and the sales rep told me I should go into the diamond business because I am so knowledgeable. I laughed sooooooo hard!

This is the closest basket setting I was able to find. The basket is pretty square as I remember it, rather than some that taper from top to bottom.

Eeeeeee, I get more and more anxious every day! He calls Thursday to find out how the work is going!

Thank you Blue and AG and MP! We called yesterday and they found the "perfect basket" according to the goldsmith! I had a little bit of a to-do because the stone apparently did not have a cert but after some back and forth phone calls and me putting my foot down, things got taken care of on the diamond end of things! H and I were kinda freaking out!

So he has some crazy proposal planned, which requires the ring be done by next Thursday! Which is weird because he isn''t supposed to be coming up to see me for another 2 weeks after that! So I am thinking crazy thoughts about this proposal which also apparently involves several friends of ours!!!!!
So now I just sit here and ponder what in heaven''s name he has planned!
