Several people have asked to see pictures of it so she had a friend snap some.

Its aprox. .23ct I si1.
I bought it on the secondary market and had the head of the original ring cut off and put on a 14k gold band. Size 10.

The diamond was eye selected by me before I knew about pricescope.
I picked it over some that were slightly bigger because out of the dozen or so I looked at it lighted up in a blaze of light a lot more than any diamond I compared it to in that range across a variety of lighting conditions.

When I told her where I bought the diamond she asked if I had saved money doing it that way and when I said yes she said.
"kewl I love it its perfect!"
She also loves the idea that I had the ring built for her.
I think she really appreciates the work I put into it more than just picking one off the shelf.
I could go one for days talking about my gal but I wont bore you with more :}
You will have to wait for pictures of it with the wedding band because they are 1700 miles apart at the moment.

It''s gorgeous, so much flash to it, I can see why you picked that one! It looks beautifully cut. And the setting is a classic, very nicely done. I''m happy for both of you!

Dont know for sure yet.
Seems like a lot of things keep getting in the way.
But soon Lord willing!
Next hurdle is immigration.
We will make it, its been 7 years this month since our first "date" which I slept thru and stood her up on!

It sure is a pain isnt it?
They need to spend more time tracking down illegals and less time picking on people trying to do it the right way.

Storm,

Im near St. Louis. And yeah I agree they are making it harder on the immigration process. My neighbor just took his citizenship test and passed. He has lived here for years though. I am surprised that with Canada, you can''t get a visa? What is going on with that! Since your fiance'' is in Canada, does she listen to George Canyon of Nashville Star fame?
