I got engaged this weekend -- here is the proposal thread for anyone who''s interested.

I''ve taken a lot of pics of my e-ring over the last couple of days. They don''t ever do the ring full justice, but some of them are pretty nice, IMO, so I thought I''d share some of them. I am unbelievably excited to post my own SMTR post, so if I post too many pics, please don''t be mad, I might get carried away a bit!

The center stone is a cushion brilliant from Canada. FI had a very tough time finding a Canadian cushion brilliant, as almost all cushions from there are modified. However, I really wanted a cushion brilliant, and both of us felt strongly about buying Canadian -- just our personal preference (please do not use this thread to argue with us if you disagree ;)). So, FI had to really look hard and for a long time until this little preciousness popped up. In the process, he says he shared quite a bit of knowledge he gathered here on PS with the associates at Brilliant Earth, to their benefit! A huge shout-out is in order here to all the experts on PS, both from me and him!
Couldn''t have done it without you. I love this site!

Specs:
GIA
1.54 ct, F, VS1
7.78 x 6.24 x 4.21 mm
L:W 1.25
Polish excellent, symmetry good, fluorescence none
Table: 60%, depth 67.5%, medium to very thick girdle

The setting is a basket setting done by Brilliant Earth with 9 bead-set side stones on each side. Initially inspired by the Cartier 1895 Pave setting, we decided to make the shank a little slimmer (2mm) and ever so slightly tapered where the cathedral comes up to the stone. It is 18K white gold, which I have always preferred to platinum. It is recycled metal (something B.E. offers).

So, here are some pics. Thanks for looking!

Another close up! The prongs look way disproportionate here. Not sure why.

What does a cushion do when it goes to a restaurant? Turn into a disco ball!

What a beautiful stone!! Even my FI just saw me looking at it and said the same, and he''s quite possibly pickier than I am! Congrats!!
