    My now fiance (!!!) proposed on December 21st while celebrating an early Christmas with his family in Maine. I am so thankful to have shared our moment with them, and incredibly happy that I'll be marrying the love of my life! I posted our engagement story in the LIW thread - https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/im-engaged-lucky-7-off-the-list.196651/

    He purchased it from my mom (she's a jeweler) and growing up, I've always had a love for antique cuts, but I've never been lucky enough to own one. Now that I have one on my finger, I'm just in awe over how beautiful and sparkly it is, and so appreciative of OMCs in general. While waiting at the airport for our flight home, a woman came over to compliment my ring since she said, "I could see that fiery beauty across the terminal!" :bigsmile:

    OMC
    1.78ct
    K color
    VS1
    Strong blue fluorescence
    Set in platinum (I can't remember how many carats are in the setting)
    Ring size is between 4 1/2 and 5

    Thank you all for the lovely replies! I agree, it is SO awesome to have a mom that is a jeweler. She has always picked out nice stones and other jewelry pieces for her clients, as well as our family members and even some of my friends. I applaud her for choosing such a beautiful stone, setting AND wedding bands, and my fiancé applauds her for making it so easy for him! :lol: Here are more pictures!

    In this lighting, you can definitely see more of that K color warmth

    The wedding bands with the e-ring:





    The bands look and are so similar in size as my setting, but they are slightly different.


    Thanks again for letting me share!
