Hey everyone!

Bryan proposed!!!!

A couple of days ago while surfing, he found a perfectly intact large clam shell....empty of course;-)
The other night we were walking out on the beach with everything glowing in the full moon....it was like being on a different planet. He distracted me for a second and put the shell on the sand, knowing I'd pick it up. (I love shells and collect them). When I saw it, I thought something was either alive or dead in it, haha! Lucky I didn't throw it in the ocean:razz:
When I opened it though, it almost WAS alive....with sparkles! When I realized what was going on, I think I went into shock! Next thing I knew, he was on one knee asking me to marry him!

The way he did this overshadowed the ring, HONESTLY. But now that it's over, it' time to show it off;-)
HEHE!


Well, I guess here's the part you all care about....LOL! The bling! :D

Click here for the Diamonds stats!

We had it set in a Gelin & Abaci tension setting in platinum. Diamond is from Good Old Gold and the setting was done through Diamond Brokers of Florida....!
My EXACT ring is going to be featured in Space Coast Living Magazine as DBOF ad! How COOL!
When Bryan picked it up, he said it was worth every cent and it suited me PERFECTLY. When I saw it, of course, I thought the same thing!
It was set in such a way that the girdle inscription is exposed (Bryan 'heart' Catherine) with the heart being an actual heart symbol. He also had an inscription put on the inside of the band....our little twist on love forever:)

Of course, more pictures to come, but for now, ENJOY! :)
We are just obsessed with it....it's just so wonderful!!!!
Wheeeee!!!!



















Thank you pricescope for making this all possible! You guys rock! :)






EDIT:
Here is the shell he used

Starspun...your ring is so unique. I don''t think I saw a design like that before. Good thing you open the shell. That would have been one expensive treat for the fishes.
It look wonderful on your hands. Congrats!!!

Thanks everyone for the comments! :)
Beacon, I was going to do a stand alone, but we''ve decided to switch this ring to the right hand and wear a wedding band on the left:)

wow it really is unique and gorgeous and modern and fantastic!! The main diamond looks very protected, but those melee diamonds the girdles are soooo exposed!!! Good thing they''re small and (relatively) cheap :D Beautiful! Amazing!

Your ring is beautiful! I''m not surprised you love it so much!

The diamond looks very big on your finger - do you have small hands?

Congratulations! What a great proposal, and the ring is so beautiful! How exciting it will be featured in an ad. Did they photograph it before your fiance picked it up or will it have to go in for a photo shoot?

It turned out beautifully! Congratulations starspun!! I love that setting, very unique. The side diamonds make it a little more feminine than your typical tension setting.
