by lucky_in_love » Jul 14, 2019 I am looking to propose to my girlfriend. We have both been married before so she wants something different. My last name means "raspberry" and we've discussed a red stone engagement ring and she loves the idea and meaning behind it. Setting isn't important right now, but she's thinking about a 3-stone flanked by two diamonds. She's a tall woman, 5'10" and her ring size is 8. Ideally looking for a stone in the 2-3ct size range, maximum budget of 7-8K. I know NOTHING about coloured stones or diamond so I'm looking for major help here. Open to different types of red stones as long as they'd be strong enough for an engagement ring. HELP! P.S. She prefers stones that are cushion cut.
