I hope this is the right section to post this! About 2 years ago, I asked my daughter if she wanted this ring as an engagement ring from me as an early inheritance. She absolutely did- so we had it sized and tweeked the design a little. I kept it in my safe until her (now fiance) came over with some baby roses to pick the ring up from me. It was so sweet! I am thrilled for them, and of course, she can't stop looking at it!! I told her a long time ago that I may occasionally be surprising her for birthdays, Christmas, etc with jewelry from me so I can see her enjoy her early inheritance. 1.02 ct,pear shape diamond, haloed with pave diamonds in 18k! 20240609_103542.jpg 20240609_103536.jpg

Congratulations to your daughter and what a sweet thing to do, the ring will have such sentimental value too. I will be using the early inheritance thing when my DD grows up. That's such a wonderful thing to share with her. You are an amazing mother!

I love it! It is very classic but I also feel like the setting has a bit of a modern edge that, judging from her nails, perfectly fits her style.

Thank you all! Oh to have those beautiful, young hands again! Her friend did her nails and I love how some of them have the ocean waves!

Congratulations to your daughter! Love the ring - it’s classic but edgy & modern all at once. And has given me ideas abut living inheritance when my girls are a bit older. My previous ring was a 1.02ct pear - twinsies! My eldest has her beady eye on it….

Oh I hope she gets it when you are ready to part with it! Would love to see pics.

Congratulations and it’s absolutely stunning.
My mother has over the years given my sister and me various pieces of jewellery as an early inheritance which is lovely.

Oh that is wonderful! Maybe I should start an early inheritance thread!

She’s only 15! And she asked last wk if she could have the pink sapphire ring Mr T bought me when she was born (has her name & DOB engraved inside) on her 16th rather than her 18th :lol-2:

Here is my pear. It’s a D VS2 & it languishes in the safe… I’m toying with having it re-set into either a bracelet or pendant.

So I just so happen to be in Florida with my daughter, her fiance, and husband for my mom's 80th birthday!! She looks fabulous BTW!! Anyways...my favorite place to go when I am here is The Jewelers Exchange in Boca Raton..(as some of you may know). My daughter, fiance, and I went today to try on wedding bands totally not expecting to buy one today but to get an idea of what she would like with it. Well, it worked out that she was just smitten with this .66ctw shared prong band. She didn't want matchy-matchy and this looked beautiful with it. This was before getting it sized. 20240611_150552.jpg 20240611_150543.jpg

Beautiful choice! It will look equally as striking when worn alone too :kiss2:
