For our 20th anniversary I was lucky enough to get a new upgraded engagement ring and band. I picked it out and unfortunately was very disappointed. It was a handmade halo ring which was exactly what I wanted, however it had a huge airline, a lot of metal showing, and was just all around unattractive. Costly mistake.

Fortunately, I discovered pricescope and learned so much. Best of all I learned about Victor Canera and the amazing work he does. Although I was nervous about purchasing a ring I had never seen in person from a vendor I would never meet in person, I took a risk and it paid off. My new Emiliya is beyond stunning. I can't even compare the craftsmanship of this ring to my "mistake ring." And it was a pleasure to work with Victor and his rep Nick.

A huge thank you to everyone on pricescope who takes the time to post and to answer other members' questions! I wouldn't have this ring without you!

Here are the specs:

VC Emiliya with round center stone in cushion halo
pave on shank, donut and struts
single row pave halo (not double edge)
2.6ct G, SI1
8.76 x 8.80 x 5.46mm
Excellent cut, symmetry and polish
HCA 1.6
.58ct melee in the ering setting
.37ct melee in the wedding band
ring size 5 3/8

I'm a horrible photographer but here are a few handshots I took with my phone in different lighting. The halo is quite delicate. I think it's smaller than what Victor usually does, but not sure. Thoughts on this? Either way, I love it!!

I wanted to share some pics since there are not a lot of round centers with cushion halo that are not double edge halos. Thought it might help others who are considering this since I had a hard time finding a lot of pictures.

Thanks for your kind words! I can't tell you how happy and relieved I am. After receiving the "mistake ring" I was not only sad but also angry that I had wasted so much money. Now I'm jus thrilled and hoping for another 20 years of marriage with this ring!

I seriously cannot thank all you ps users enough. I lurked for a while and learned so much about diamonds and about halos. I'm amazed by all of your knowledge. That's what led me to this final ring. Thank you!

By the way, Victor posted a much better shot of my ring and band on his Facebook and Twitter pages. I was excited to see that.

Thanks, everyone! I look forward to putting it in on every morning and can't stop looking at it all day!

m-2-b - Here are some profile pictures. The diamond takes up the whole basket, which looks amazing. I've been trying to figure out if the culet actually goes into the donut a little, but I can't tell.
