Hi there!

It's been long, but at last I've had my e-ring.

Some of you may remember my previous posts, I've been waiting for almost 1 year for my engagement ring (I admit I was partly responsible for that :oops: ) and we eventually chose a 0.9 carat Cartier 1895 ring in June. We had to wait for three more weeks until mid-July to have the ring done (it was made on order since they had none available that did meet our criteria).

I've been wearing it proudly since I got it on 13th July and am happy to say that I love it :love:

I was a bit nervous before I had it on my finger because I wasn't given the opportunity to see the stone before it was set. Of course I trusted Cartier to sell only well cut diamonds but still...All my doubts vanished when I opened the (not so) little red box. The diamond is beautiful and the ring as a whole is perfect.

Once again I wasn't disappointed by their craftmanship and I must say I'm impressed by the quality of their platinum. I've been wearing it for almost two month and still no scratch or patina...

The diamond is really gorgeous and I think it has a lot of fire and brilliance. I'm know there are many diamonds with a better cut (mine is only VG) but I I've been looking at other women rings since I've had mine to try and compare the fire/brilliance saw none that looked significantly better.

I would like to thank all of you who helped me make a decision, PS is definitely the place to go to get good advice!




Thanks again,
Frenchcut

I'm sorry I'm so slow at loading pictures, it seems to take forever :roll:

Here is a profile view for those interested in the design of the shank.

I know it's rather small by Pricescope standards but it's lovely and I wouldn't like anything bigger than that!
