I am a senior at North Carolina State University, and I will be graduating with my BS in Accounting in May. I have been with my SO for around 2 1/2 years. He is also a NC State student and hopes to finish his PhD in engineering sometime this summer or fall.

We have recently been talking more and more about getting engaged within the next year or so. He has been asking me a lot of things about what I would like in an engagement ring so I started doing some searching and stumbled across this site. I thought I should finally introduce myself since I have been lurking here for about 2 months.

I look forward to getting to know all of you wonderful ladies!

Right now I feel like I want everything. SO and I actually haven''t been ring shopping in person yet so I haven''t tried anything on. We have both been really busy trying to finish up our degrees so we have only looked online at this point. I plan on dragging him ring shopping with me very soon. Right now I think I like round, princess, and emerald cuts the most.

I will have to get back to you on the pictures. I have a few saved on my computer, but I have to figure out how to post them first.

So I tried to post another picture ^^^^, but for some reason I am having difficulties.

Yay! It worked! This one is my absolute favorite so far.

Let me try again:

Thanks! I have actually lost about 10lbs since that picture was taken and cut about 3 inches off of my hair. I wish I had a more current picture, but I love how we are all dressed up. The wedding was a beach wedding so it was very casual. The bride and groom are our really good friends. SO met the groom while he was in undergrad and I have been friends with the bride since 7th grade. We actually met through them.

Do you know who that ring is by? I ran across it on the web, but I have no idea where it came from.

It''s by Leon Mege. Here''s a link to it on his website: Linky.

Just in case you haven''t seen it, here''s a somewhat similar style by Knox Jewelers -- it''s not LM, but I like it, too and it''s more affordable: Knox 1. There are a lot more similar settings on the Knox site.

Thanks for the link! I actually see quite a few on that site that I like. The one that is similar to the one I posted above is great, and I may even like it more.

I really love the filigree on this one.

I also really like this one.

the second one you posted, it looks fabulous. It has that "geometric" (for lack of a better word) look to it, which is perfect for a sharp-cornered princess center. A great look. I like the first one too, v. classic. And yes, Leon Mege has tons of droolworthy stuff. HAPPY BROWSING!!!
