Hello,

I would just like to start off by saying that this website was extremely helpful in helping me determine what to look for in a diamond, so I want to thank you all for the enormous amount of posts to sift through leading up to the purchase of the ring.
http://www.pricescope.com/myimages/forum?id=message#
I recently proposed to my fiance (she said yes) after about 3.5 years of dating and after about 7 total years of knowing each other - we went to the same college and met freshman year in our dorm.

About a year ago she saw and fell in love with the Tacori 2628 emerald cut ring. So after a lot of shopping around, I found a local jeweler that is a Tacori dealer - they were extremely knowledgeable about diamonds and the various Tacori settings and I am extremely pleased with the results.

So, now what you are all interested in:

The setting: Tacori 2628 ECP (Petite Setting)
Metal: Platinum
Weight: .64 carats, G VS1 (I counted 42 stones - 9 up and down each side of the shank, 16 in the halo, 3 on both sides of the ring, and the 2 side stones)
Size: 7 1/4

The Center:
1.0 Carat GIA Certified G VS1
LxW Ration = 1.5

I know there are similar rings on here, but I have yet to find a picture of the emerald cut center stone with this setting. It was EXTREMELY helpful for me to look at the other 2628 settings (Lotsofsparkle's comes to mind) when deciding on certain features (metal/size/etc) and I hope that others find this useful when deciding on this same setting. If for nothing else, it helped the 4 week period go by (Tacori takes 4 weeks to craft the ring) so that I had a small idea of what my ring would look like.

I get more info on the center when I get home (I forgot to write down the specifics) and will update this post at that time.

Both of us are very excited about the ring and we are happy to answer questions others might have about our experience (so far) with Tacori, its selected retailers, the setting, or anything else! Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking!

Congratulations! The ring is absolutely gorgeous! You should also post a pic in the "Under a carat" folder. Although this center stone is right on the brink for ct weight there, it would be a great addition to that folder.

Thank you all so much for your compliments - we are very excited :)

Here are a couple of hand shots we took - the beach ones were taken right after the proposal, and the others were taken last night at your request. My apologies if the quality is not the greatest - I have a few point and shoot cameras that are about 3-4 years old, and only have 5 megapixels. Therefore, I have been using my iPhone - it has ten megapixels and at this point has gotten me the best shots in my opinion. I know there are a few threads out there with picture advice, but if anyone has any other suggestions, specifically with the iPhone, I'd love hear them.

Again, thanks for all of the compliments!

I have a few more to add but am running into an issue with the picture - no matter how many times I try to upload new pics to the server, it uploads the same picture every time. On my image control panel I have the same picture multiple times, but attempted to upload different pics. Has anyone run into this? How can I actually remove images from my image control panel, and how can I upload the rest for you guys?

Amazing Amazing ring!! :appl: I adore step cuts, and it's so beautiful on her finger! She is a very lucky girl! :love:

I'm not sure about the iphone but most of us use macro mode for our pics. It really does a great job catching all that fire and brillance. Can not wait to see more shots! I just got a 1ct asscher and was thinking of adding side traps and a halo, now I sorta have an ideal of what that would look like! Great job!!!!
