My new engagement ring! Finally picked one to keep...

    I was really indecisive about what ring to get - started out wanting an oval (mostly because my engagement ring from my first marriage was round) and even bought one that we sent back - but in the end - went back to the idea of a round diamond. Then I was torn between a 1.69 J in a halo and a 2.22 K in a vintage inspired setting. Here they are:

    1.69 J


    2.22 K


    I went with the K... I love the simple vintage setting - and who doesn't love a 2 + carat diamond! I don't see much color in the K. I'm sure I can find lighting where I might see some tint - but I can see some color reflections in my 1 carat F diamond too. I love it! I'll post more pictures that I took this afternoon too! :lickout:

    My fiance is a saint to put up with me changing my mind so much - and going so far as to buy more than one ring so I could compare which was my favorite. Gotta love great return policies for indecisive chicks like me. He's so awesome - so not only am I madly in love with my new ring - I feel so incredibly blessed to be with such a fabulous guy.... :appl:

    Phew! I was looking at those pictures and chanting in my head "pick the K ... pick the K!"

    Both rings are lovely, but the setting and personality of the one you picked are just outstanding. I hope you post many more pics!

    I think both rings are pretty so you couldn't really go wrong. I love the K though! And the side view of the setting is :love:

    ditto that.
    If it is really how a K color look like I'll definitely go with the I color that I'm considering!

    I might have missed another thread but I need to know -- I love that vintage inspired setting! Who manufactures it? Fabulous! And that K is gorgeous - might I inquire who the vendor is?

    In total a spectacular piece. Bravo!

    Both are so pretty but I really like the basket on the one you choose and what a great guy you have! Is the setting you chose from Ebay, that was a great find and so beautiful. Can't wait to see what band you choose to go with it.
