    I got engaged last week to my wonderful fiance. I'm still in graduate school and he is in an apprenticeship, so his beautiful purchase means that much more to me. We went to ID jewelry to browse some rounds and ovals in our budget and Yekutiel was very helpful and direct about the best options for our price range. He somehow arranged the purchase with my fiance in the 2 minutes I wasn't in earshot of them and then they made me believe that they would "keep searching" in the next few weeks!
    The diamond is a round 1.32 carat GIA J VS2 Excellent cut with a .8 HCA score (although I would be lying if I said that my fiance or I knew much about the HCA tool when he purchased it!) My ring size is a size 5 - and I have pretty long fingers! I have attached some images (hope they aren't too blurry?). The first one is from the proposal and the other two are some of the literal hundreds I've taken since I got the ring ;-)

    What a gorgeous ring! It's so beautiful on your hand. What kind of wedding band do you plan to get?

    Congratulations on your engagement!!

    (We need more pictures, BTW :mrgreen2:)

    Thank you all for your very kind posts!! They were lovely to read.

    I don't know what I'd like for a wedding band! I've considered the Cartier love ring, which is much thicker and would provide an interesting contrast. I've also thought about a five-stone band to bling it up a bit! I may get one of those in addition to a plain platinum band for daily use.

    IDJ designed the ring with four prongs specifically so that it could sit flush with a wedding band (I prefer the look of 6 prongs but I wanted the flush fit) so I would have to try on something like a five-stone band to see if that would still look good or if I should do a thinner eternity band. What do you think?
