Yay!! I am engaged!! It happened on Monday before the Detroit Tigers' home opener and it was perfect! I was completely surprised and did not think that it would be happening this soon! (I was figuring another couple weeks or so) Anyways, now about the ring. The center stone is a GIA cert. 1.05 Cushion Modified Brilliant, I, VVS2 with strong blue fluorescence (which I love!) It is gorgeous and so sparkly! There are 14 - 1.5mm bead set diamonds on the sides ~.22ctw with 4 - 1.5mm bezel set peridots on the prongs! It was made by a local jeweler and based off of the Vera Wang setting that Albicocca has. The peridots are my fiance's birthstone and add a little color to it! The band is 2mm wide and I love love love it! Here are some pics (I don't know how to put more than one pic in a post) It hasn't been too sunny lately (it's snowing right now!) so I will have to get some better shots once it is!

First, that stone is gorgeous!!! Second, I immediately recognized it was either a Vera Wang or inspired by it - the jeweler did a good job! Beautiful ring. I like the added touch of the peridot. What are you doing for a band?

Mustang ~ Thank you so much! The diamond is my birthstone and I love green, so I guess I lucked out with his birthstone being a peridot!

FG ~ Thank you so much! I have not decided on a band yet, but I am thinking eternity with diamonds and peridots? Maybe one on each side? Who knows, I have a lot of time to decide! (The wedding prob won''t be until summer of 2009)

That is such a cool engagement ring. Love the peridots in the prongs. I have a ring something like it but it is a green amyest with diamonds on the prongs. Peridot is also my Birthstone. Lovely choice. Enjoy your engagement ring, and congratulations on such a lovely unigue ring.

Gorgeous ring! I REALLY like your stone...I don''t suppose you could take just a couple more pics??!
Your stone is L:W 1.29 and a 54% table right (I read your previous posts)? And it has the first plot of the two that I am attaching to this post? I think this plot has the best of both worlds, that chunky antique look but more brillance because of the "modified" extra facets. What was your experience when shopping for your cushion?

Thanks blingergrrrl! I will attach some pics of the stone loose so that you can see it a little better. I purchased it through adiamor.com but I found it on jamesallen.com first. Adiamor was a few hundred cheaper. I looked at so many different cushions before deciding on this one. When I was looking, I wrote down some of the specs from the different cushions that I liked on this website for reference. I knew that I wanted a rectangular cushion for sure. I also went with a company that has a great return policy (most do now I think) so that I could return it if I wanted to! Anyways, here are a couple pics of it loose.
This is a pic from the first day I got it. There is a bowtie, but it is dark b/c I was wearing a dark shirt. When I wear light colored shirts, it is the color of the shirt.

I''m so glad to have company in the elongated cushion loving dept :) And in the non-hating bowtie dept :D I have a theory about that.... bowties are known to be obstruction zones... but on both the IS and ASET my stone had the strongest light return in that area.... which leads me to think that some ''bowties" are truly deadzones and others are reflecting zones. Mine, and apparently yours, reflect what they see... not darkness unless its a dark shirt. I''m curious to pursue this theory.....
