I did a lot of research for the engagement ring I eventually purchased through Excel Diamonds...AKA Barry and Judah! Thanks! Through reading a lot of message boards such as this I knew I wanted an AGS 0 Prinecess in the 1.5 carat range. Found one at Excel and talking with them they were able to create the exact ring that I wanted (and that my fiance absolutely loves). Anyway, just thought I''d share with everyone my positive buying experience. Of course I also want to brag about the incredible ring that I bought. Here is a picture from our celebrating weekend a few thousand feet over NY. Again thanks to Barry and Judah for working with me to get the ring we always wanted. P.S. it appraised from an independent appraiser for 45% more than I paid (for whatever that is worth).
