Hi Everyone!

I've just received my sister's engagement ring and I am completely gushing over how beautiful it is. My sister was involved in the process of choosing her ring and has seen all the photos. I am just in "charge" of the ring until the proposal.

So the stats....

A beautiful 2.24 carat N color VS2 antique cushion from Erica at Love Affair Diamonds. The AGS cert says old Mine and measures 8.36x8.12. It's probably a little spready but I think the stone is just beautiful to my eyes.

My sis chose the Sienna setting in 18k yellow gold. The gold is so so lush... I kept comparing to my platinum and all I could see is grey grey grey. Time for a polish!!

My sister's boyfriend, when he decided he needed the ring, needed it like yesterday. So big thanks to Erica and Caysie for pushing this out very very fast.

Ok so now onto the pics!!!!

Thanks Missy!!!
I just love her ring!! :love: :love: :love: I keep opening the box and playing with it. It's going to need a really good clean.
I'll try and take more photos; i'm such a noob with the camera :confused: I think i keep getting too close and blocking the light.

I'll definitely be back with the proposal photos too!!
He is such a wonderful man; I'm so happy for them :appl: :appl: :love:

I also saw this and hoped the same thing as msop! It's really beautiful. I love the shape of the cushion, and the setting is gorgeous. It's funny, I wondered how it would look next to my ring, which is exactly like yours, so thanks for those pics, too! :D

Thanks msop04 !!! I am forever hopeful that the things I see on instagram will end up in a SMTB thread :lol: :lol:

Thank you m-2-b !! It is a very moody diamond! She doesn't know what color she wants to be. I'm fascinated by it. Loving the warmer colors.

NKOTB ummm we are practically ring twins!!! I love my tranny diamond and I love the julia setting. Just wish it was bigger HA my husband is so sick of hearing that. This place makes DSS so bad!!

motownmama thank you. I agree it is classic but something so unique about it; I think maybe the moodiness of the diamond.

Queenie60 thanks for your kind words! I'm so excited for them.

It's a beautiful piece with beautiful detailing - definitely heirloom-worthy! And you're pushing me closer to using yellow gold when I re-set my mother's diamond, an N-ish transitional, so thank you for posting!

gorgeous!!!!! i am on the fence about colour in an OEC i should be getting soon ( :think: ). I had originally thought that M is too warm for me but your sister's stone is beyond beautiful. Very lush indeed. Lucky you to be the 'ring bearer' until the proposal :dance:

Congratulations to your sister! Lucky gal.

I already thought the ring is a knockout from the top view with the claw prongs and the tapering shank, but when you showed pics of the profile? - MIND BLOWN :shock: :shock: :shock: :love: :love: :love: :appl: :appl: :appl:

Love your pics next to your Julia! Just goes to show that when it comes to diamond preference, there is no right answer. Near colorless Tranny versus warm pillowy cushion - they're all gorgeous! I hope your sister and her fiance love the ring - Caysie and I were honored to make it for them!

Re: My Sisters Engagement Ring... It's an N color and gorgeo

Thank you everyone for all your lovely comments!!!

The ring is so well finished; the detailing is so, for lack of a better word, perfect!
As for the diamond... I think the tint is very romantic; I feel a bit silly when in my own diamond search I was very caught up in my diamond needing to be as white as possible to please my own and the general public perception that diamonds "should" be white. I think we need a cape diamond revolution. Lower colors for the win :dance:
Erica is right there is no real answer... It's all about what makes your heart skip a beat!

I'm attaching some of Erica's detailed photos :love:
