K Color Marquise Faint Brown, My $1000 PS Giveaway Ring

Since I love colored stones, I felt it would only be appropriate for me to get a warm diamond. After extensive reading and watching numerous videos on James Allen, I settled on a 0.7 ct K color marquise with faint brown. It is close to a 2 ratio for length/width and I had it set in a 6 prong solitaire rose gold knife edge ring in hopes it would bring out more of the color. I am kinda kicking myself for not going with a bezel or halo but I do like how minimalist this looks. I did ask James Allen if I could have the prongs change into rose gold but they informed me that this ring style didn't accommodate that so I ended up with a rose gold ring with white prongs. I did end up paying $30 extra for the ring but I am beyond happy with the service from James Allen and I cannot thank PriceScope enough for their kind gift. Thank you and enjoy these pictures/videos!!! My ring finger is a size 5, stone is 9.07 x 4.56 mm.

Thank you Niel! I love it! I had a hard time finding other faint brown stones in rose gold to compare with but I couldn't be happier. I do wish it was more saturated in color but I love how it's like a light champagne. Thank you for all your posts about marquise. It made my choice so much easier!

Thank you! I'm glad you all like it too. I had some remorse but feel that it looks much better as a plain and simple ring.

So pretty! I also choose a marquise from JA from my winnings! I considered going with a JA setting as well, but ultimately decided that I'd like to put it into a custom setting (that hopefully, I'll get started on soon). Anyway, your ring is lovely, and I'm especially liking the rose gold. Congrats!

I saw the designs you posted! It is going to be a beautiful ring! I would have liked to go the custom route but I just bought a ring for Christmas so I figured having a nice solitaire would be good. I don't know if I'll re-set this but I the minimalist look is growing on me. Keep us updated with your ring design. I can't wait to see it!

Thank you! I was worried with how it would turn out but I am quite happy. I couldn't find a lot of examples of warmer stones with rose gold since most people choose white settings and especially since there aren't too many examples of rose gold with marquise stones.

Thank you! :D It's so much lighter than my sapphire ring and bands. I think I will wear this for the time being and give my e-ring and wedding bands a rest.

Thank you so much! I was worried it wouldn't look right but I am loving the minimalist look. The marquise is the perfect stone for a solitaire.
