Well here it is. After months of lurking and getting educated by you all and this fabulous website, also got a give credit to GOG''s website. 3 weeks ago I decided it was time to get serious and build an engagement ring. I was torn between GOG and Whiteflash. Either way i figured I could n''t go wrong. Since I live in Albany, NY I decided on GOG so I could have the peace of mind to see the diamond in person. I put a hold on this diamond www.goodoldgold.com/diamond/2803
and then went down on saturday (3 hour drive down and 3 back...had to lie to the girlfriend and said i was working...i don''t normally lie but this was for a good cause right). When I got there I was happy to see that GOG was a nice looking store. Met Tim and he showed me the stone. I loved it!!! It had the sparkle factor for sure. here are the specs:

I''m glad I was one of the lucky ones to be able to actually go to GOG in person. Rhino was there educating a customer. They had beaufiful stones, beautiful jewelry, and a nice staff. No pressure whatsoever. I also changed my mind on the setting after seeing it in person. I ended up going with Vatche X prong with princess cut diamonds. And after 3 weeks of obsessing over the ring, I got the email that it was done and the pics of the finished product.

Hey Scott,

I see you got your pic to upload! Very beautiful ring and diamond! I''m glad you had a good experience with GOG too. That is really cool that you got to go there in person so you could see everything before making your final decision. Good luck with the proposal! (not that you''ll need it)... I''m looking forward to hearing your proposal story.
