My education in diamonds started on PS last May and spun out of control from there. We selected the diamond and designed the setting in November with an amazing jeweler: Natalie from 23rd Street Jewelers in Manhattan Beach - I tried 3 other jewelers first but she was the only one who understood what I wanted (they do a lot of work with fancy colored diamonds). The ring is finally on my finger as of Jan.19th!

My Engagement Story: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-romantic-proposal-story.78970/

I wanted something unique, but not too trendy that it would look dated in a few years. To make a VERY LONG story shorter, we worked really hard to select and create a ring that looks good on me (I''m a redhead with massive amounts of freckles).

The diamond is a very light pink-champagne diamond that looks different in every type of lighting. It''s a rectangular radiant cut, 1.42 ct, VS2. It''s one of those "crushed ice" radiants that sparkles like crazy.

We finally chose a rose gold setting (I asked for "as rosy as you can make it") with white diamond micropave 3/4 of the way around. The diamond is held in by split claw prongs on each corner. The band is as thin as he could make it and there is millgrain ("as delicate as possible") along all edges. There are also micropave diamonds along the bars of the basket.

ENJOY!

Absolutely gorgeous! And so cool that it was custom designed to be uniquely yours. Doesn''t it feel great to have something that is not exactly like anyone else''s? Congratulations on your engagement! Are you doing a band with the ering, or will it stand alone?

omgomgomg.... that's it. That's the beautiful, subtle 'band-aid' pink color that I adore!

I love, love, love your ring. It's quietly, but profoundly elegant. Absolutely GORGEOUS.

________________________________________________

I'm SO totally bowled over by your ring, I have to ETA that it's gone right on to my "ultra-faves at PS" list. With the hundreds and hundreds of rings we see here, many of them TDF, I think yours is truly one of the most special.

I''ll try to post some hand shots tomorrow!

Ninama: You wouldn''t believe how hard it was to explain to jewelers that I WANTED a "dirty/orangy/browny" pink color. I wish I had thought of your "band-aid" description earlier

. True pink is not a color that I would ever want, but this shade just works for me!

Thanks to everyone for their congrats!

How cool, I love it.

Very unique, I bet you will get a lot of questions about
it. The color is so pretty and the rose gold and white diamonds
make a stunning combo. Congrats!
