I'm so excited to finally have my ring and be able to share it! ERD was really wonderful to work with and even with a few hiccups, I really don't think I could love any other version more. This was both an anniversary upgrade and a replacement for my original engagement ring that was stolen during a home break in.

The ring is a hand forged 14k Rose Gold, size 7 1/4, and is so incredibly delicate. (2mm at it's widest) The diamond is a GIA certed Old Mie brilliant sourded through Adam at Old World Diamonds. It's 2.75 cts, O-P Range, VS1, 8.37 x 8.8 x 5.48. It has some color, but it's shockingly white top down - and I think the rose gold really helps!

I really love this ring. It's dainty, and feminine, but it still feels so strong and secure! My diamond knocks my socks off. It's a little disco ball sitting on my finger. I just can not stop staring at it.

Now, on to the photos!

Here are the shots that ERD sent to me before they mailed the ring:

And a few that I took with my DSLR and macro lens.

I didn't have any flowers, so my succulent came out to play.

I think it's gorgeous! Are you happy with it? I know you'd had some concerns about the petals, struts etc. and had decided to see it in person before making any decision. Is it safe to say you are happy because you posted in SMTB?? I hope so because that is one gorgeous ring!! :love:

Now all we need are handshots!! ;))

So beautiful! I love the OMC and I love the setting you chose for it- a perfect home for your lovely stone! And the rose gold-ooh la la! Wear in health and happiness!

And I second Yenny's request for handshots please!!!

SOrry for the crappy iphone hand shots, but it's all I have at the moment. (I used the photojojo macro lens for anyone that is curious.)

I wasn't sure how I felt about the roundness of the gallery when I first saw the ERD images. But I love the way it sits on my finger. It has a bit of an art deco feel.

Ok meg, you are killing me with this halo goodness!! I just commented in the other thread how I have been tempted by all the beautiful halos here on PS, and then you further torture me with this beauty!! :cheeky: It turned out beautifully, it is the perfect home for your amazing diamond - I know you had a few reservations about it from your other thread, but I have to say I think it's stunning and I hope you really love it too! Wear it in health and happiness!

Wow wow wow wow wow. :shock: What have you done to me? Halos were out (for me). Now they are in. Loved RG, but was afraid with an M OEC. Now I KNOW I HAVE TO HAVE IT. Yummy yummy :appl: I just can't say enough about your spectacular setting. I am so glad you stayed with it!! PS is killing me. Every time I decide on something, I fall in love with something else!! I am so jealous of your beauty! =)
