So... My fiance purposed one week ago today. Today is actually our 1 year anniversary, so I was expecting it today and he suprised me by doing it a whole week early. We are both still in college, going into our final semesters, and he is absolutely perfect for me, but given that we are both broke college kids, I really wasn't expecting much of anything (and was fine with that) and was totally stunned when he presented me with this ring. I know it's far from perfect to a lot of the people on this website who have 3 carat diamonds, but its way more than I expected and I'm excited nontheless. Not to mention, it's super sentimental. We started dating on May 26 and we will be getting married on May 26 of next year (one year from today!!! AHH!) and he made sure that the combined number of diamonds in my wedding and engagement ring set is... 26 :) And on top of that, the total carat weight of my engagement ring is 2.6 :) Sorry in advance for all of the photos... it's probably way over the top. I'm just really excited.

stats on the ring(s):

Engagement ring:

Center Diamond: Emerald Cut
Carat Weight: 1.2
Color: I
Clarity: VS2
Demensions: 7.65x5.24x3.51
Other diamonds: Round and Bezel Set- total of 12- G/H color
Metal: 18 kt. White Gold/Platinum Head

Wedding Band:

Round and Bezel Set- total of 13- G/H color
Metal: 18 Kt. White Gold

Beautiful set! I think your ER is perhaps the most attractive emerald-cut ring I've come across - gorgeous proportions and lovely bling while still allowing the emerald-cut to be the star. Sounds like you have a super-sweet FI - congratulations to you both!

Congratulations, snew! Your rings are gorgeous. I love that the wedding ring matches, but can be worn on it's own if you ever want that. I also love the May 26 connection! May 26 was my mom's birthday, and the day I graduated from college. Very special! :)
