    Sharing the new engagement ring first right here---don't worry, she doesn't read the forum! I dropped to J-color, found a hearts-and-arrows like-cut on James Allen that was priced WAY less than similar stone from BGD and am AMAZED with the result! I had returned my first try on a ring due to lackluster brilliance and was about to simply pony up the cash for a BGD signature cushion if this one wasn't as hoped. Don't think I'll be doing that anymore. It's has brilliance and fire like I've never seen in the other cushions I had looked at! And the J-color appears perfectly colorless on a rose-gold band.

    1 carat, J color VS1/VG/VG (GIA). I included the ASET for reference given it was a bit indeterminate (black arrows?!), and the diamond photo from JA. I'm not a photographer so the pics are simply indoor shots, overhead lighting, with my phone's camera :)

    Beautiful!! I love the design and rose gold, and diamond looks like it will be a sparkler. Please come back with hand shots.

    Beautiful diamond & beautiful ring! Rose gold was the most perfect choice for this stone - you’re a keeper!

    Don’t forget to come back with hand shots when you have popped the question!

    GORGEOUS!!! I love the cut of the stone! It's so easy to see the hearts and arrows - the facets are so defined - it's beautiful! I love your setting choice and the rose gold! Well done!
    Good luck with the proposal!!! Please come back and show us how it looks on her hand! I'm sure she will be as blown away as we are! :)

    That is stunning! I don't think I've seen a picture of hearts and arrows cushion that wasn't from a vendor.
    Absolutely beautiful! I bet that precision cut is part of the reason that J looks so white =)2

    Wow, thanks for the comments you all! I definitely lucked out finding this diamond on JA and am, oh so happy, I decided to do better after I received my first stone. As soon as i opened this one up, i knew it was the one and I, truly, can't wait to give it to the soon-to-be fiancee. I know that she will LOVE it and I'm sure she'll be so excited to show off the ring (with a hand shot ;-) ) once she gets it!

    Thanks PSers!

    That’s just lovely and that’s coming from someone who isn’t typically a full halo fan - the rose gold really sets the stones up nicely, perhaps in a way white metals don’t. It’s a keeper!!!

    Because you all wanted hand shots---I got her to take a few :dance:

    We're obviously in St. Louis if you can't tell from the username and pics. These were our only shots--unedited and all that. We were just happy to be celebrating :) Hopefully I'll be able to come back with a few more

    Ah, the gateway to the west; I remember visiting a museum that had a lot of Lewis & Clark info. Fabulous ring! Congratulations to you both!
