Hello everyone. I am new to PS but have been lurking for quite a long time now. I know my boyfriend of 3 years will be proposing soon. It is no surprise, I just don''t know when. He lives about 8 hours away, so when he asked me what style I want for an ER, we had to resort to the internet. I showed him a radiant cut halo ER. He is on a strict budget since he is in his last semester of school. So I made a few recommendations off of some websites and he chose one. I am really nervous that I may have not done enough research (PS has made me realize how much I didn''t know!). He told me about the one he chose but I''m really worried it will not turn out as I have expected. I think I am just worrying for nothing. I know we took a huge risk ordering from the internet, but since he lives in such a remote area, that was the only way for him finding something I wanted.

Anyone experience this or feel nervous about your ER decision?

Here are the specs on the center stone he chose

1.24 Carat Radiant cut J VS2
6.75 x 5.29 x 4.02
Polish and Symmetry Very Good
Depth 75.9%
Table 65%

Would love to hear from anyone!

Welcome glowgirl!!!


Congrats on your upcoming engagement and finding your virtual dream ring! I just wanted to say that I am sure you will absolutely love your e-ring ...just for the sentiment behind it alone. I''ve also learned through my own process that I can completely trust my BF to make solid, educated decisions...especially about such a big purchase!! I don''t know all of the details about my e-ring, but I am pretty sure my BF bought the stone online as well. He was extremely skeptical at first but after spending a lot of time on PS he warmed up to the idea and took the plunge.

Anyway, welcome again! Can you show us pics of this radiant halo??

Welcome! I''m new-ish too. You''ll love it here. Sounds like your stay will be short & sweet! Congratulations on your upcoming engagement!

I can''t say I have had a similar experience as I left it in my boyfriend''s hands to choose the ring to avoid any nerves about being the one who made the choice

Welcome GG! Congratulations on finding a ring, that''s the hardest part of the process! I think feeling nervous is a good thing, so long as you don''t feel regretful at all. The description of the ring sounds fine, have you seen a picture of it? Either way, the meaning of your ring will be far more important than any minor concerns you''ll have, so just enjoy these last few weeks/months as a LIW!

PS: I love halos too :)

This split shank is nice but how do you wear a band with it?
