First off, I would like to say these forums rock...sorry I had to. There is so much to learn and it has helped me a lot. So, here''s the story...I''ve been with my gf for 4 plus years and I feel the time is near to pop the question. I would like to spend 4500-6000 for the ring. I don''t think she has a preference for solitaire or not, I think she likes the emerald style(she thinks its different), and she would take size over the other c''s. Can any of you experts help me find an emerald ring...maybe some examples? Thanks so much. I plan on popping the question in December so I have plenty of time.
