I started casually looking for inspiration this winter, then joined pricescope and turned it up a notch in February. This weekend, my longtime girlfriend became my fiancee and we're both very happy with the ring (and the fact that we're engaged, obviously :D ). The deets: .97 F SI2 AVC in a Mark Morrell 4-prong petite torchiere with slightly narrowed shank. I stretched my budget a little, but we both love the final product. :naughty: 8-)

The flower shot did something funny when I uploaded it, so here's a closer shot that shows off the AVC a bit better.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone...I wish I was better at taking pictures, but suffice it to say we're very with the ring (and the engagement). :love:

Gorgeous! Congratulations! AVCs are absolutely beautiful!

I'm actually on the hunt for a .97ct, tho I think budget will actually only allow a .79ct. Our anniversary is Sept 7, which is the reason I'm looking for one of the two. :D
