    Aww @Mamabean, that's quite a compliment from one with a magnificent collection like yours! :kiss2: I did try on a 15-pointer band when I got this one, I loved it too. But hubby preferred this one...so who am I to argue? :whistle:

    Thank you lovely!

    I hate to say this but that three stone paraiba rakes the cake. Poor minty doesn't have a chance. That ring glows!!!

    Thank you, @luxe - on your lovely slim fingers I think she looks wonderful! I love stones under 1 ct (my favorite thread on PS is the < 1ct thread) and think they look gorgeous on all you girls with slender fingers! Love your collection, luxe - thank you for sharing! :wavey:

    Thank you @mrs-b it’s been an interesting ride, but I wouldn’t change anything, and Bella was definitely worth the wait. Just sad that we won’t have another 40 years together.

    I have a few different rings. I have a 1.5 Ct. Pear solitaire, a 1 ct. cushion in a pink diamond halo, a 3 stone OEC (.85 center I think) Art Deco style, and a 8 mm OEC moissanite (which I would like to replace in the future) in a halo split shank. I also have a Tiffany bezet .16 ring and lastly my 3.09 ACA in a non diamond halo.

    I’ll have to do a photo shoot. Oh! And a .53 (I think) OEC daisy ring surrounded by rose cut diamonds.
    Here is that one. I had DK sizeit so it can fit both my middle and ring fingers.

    I was thinking of doing the same thing! I’ve decided I like MRB’s better than the OEC’s..even though they are beautiful..My major stumbling block is I feel like I’m replacing my engagement ring and it bothers me..I thought of starting small at Whiteflash and setting it in a plain setting and every year go up..I like their upgrade policy..I think I’ll be heading towards a three stone..:P2

    Ooooooh! It’s gorgeous! Did DK make the ring or did he just size it? I’m looking for one now!

    Thank you! It’s actually by Etsy seller Julia B. I just had David add milgrain and resize it. I think she has another one listed right now and I saw one listed very similar on JBG also. Oh! I was wrong. It’s .63 Ct. for the OEC and .55 ctw for the rose cuts.

    Ivy and Rose does upgrades. I don't quite remember the policy, but I think you get 90% of the value of the stone. That said, they don't have much over 2cts...

    Here are all my engagement type rings. I also posted them with the bands I normally wear them with. The pear with a Tiffany shared prong, the OEC moissy with the WF harmony band and the DBL cushion with a rose gold Simon G band. I don’t normally wear the three stone OEC with a band bc it’s wide but when I do it’s a single cut old 1920s wedding band I bought from a pawn shop. The rose cut cluster I wear with a bezel set diamond eternity from LOGR but I didn’t take the picture with it.
