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).

Beautiful ring, was that your proposal spot?!!

Thanks everyone! I thought it was a pretty cool picture and glad you like it. It was reading message boards and your posts that I was able to make such an informed purchase.

This was not the proposal spot but where we went to celebrate the weekend after she said yes. For the proposal we relieved our first date which included dinner at PF Changs. At dinner my fortune cookie said "something special will happen at home soon". I started to laugh like crazy as my woman had no idea what I had planned. When we got home I gave her a photo album reliving our three years together with captions I put on the pictures. The last picture was one asking her to marry me and then I pulled the ring out. She was so captivated by the ring I had to remind her she needed to say YES.

I still can''t believe the fortune cookie that I got
