i've been dying to get this ring for quite a few months now, and finally this past week my FI proposed! i don't have all the stats with me right now (FI has it) but here's what i remember...

Cushion cut
1.03 carats
I color
SI1

as soon i have the rest i'll post it...for now please enjoy the pictures and story (if you so choose to read on
)

almost nine months ago FI and i went to look at rings for the first time. i fell in love with this gorgeous mark patterson setting. as soon as i tried it on we both new it was the one. we discussed some different options for the stone since i was looking for a square stone, but i left the final decision up to my FI. i still wanted that bit of surprise as to what it would look like. after months of me wondering when we'd get engaged, i got the surprise of my life at work. my FI had just finished a big job interview and we planned on meeting for lunch. since i was already at work, he said he call me when he was closer to the restaurant we were meeting at so i would know when to leave. i kept waiting for his text, and after an hour i was wondering what was taking so long. i kept working when in walks a women from security asking me if we could talk for a couple of minutes. (i work for a company that you have to have an employee id to enter). as soon as i got up to follow her out in walks my FI! he got down on one knee and asked me right there. i was completely shocked! never in a million years did i expect he'd propose there! he got me good and gave me one beautiful ring to wear


ok picture time!

Wow. Just wow. That ring is fantastic. It is incredibly similar to what I''m looking at for myself (although I still have quite a few months before I can post beautiful hand shots like those). But I''m book marking your post so I can keep these pics for inspiration hehe I have all my favorite PS rings bookmarked.

I''ve admired this setting myself for a long time, it is really beautiful! I thin it looks perfect with a cushion and I love the swoopy head detail! Congratulations!

Congratulations! Your ring is just gorgeous, and that profile is to die for!!!!! The cushion looks HUGE on you and I don''t know if it''s the setting or your ring size, but ENJOY it!!!! It looks massive on your hand!
