by Kayelle » Jan 11, 2019 Hi everyone. I had posted over in ‘Rocky Talky’ as I am looking for an engagement ring, however now I’m considering lab grown I thought I should post here. My story! So, my partner and I have just found out we're expecting our first baby . I'm 35, and thought I would have fertility problems so it has been very exciting, overwhelming and unexpected!! We'd talked about getting engaged 'one day' and now he wants to move that along that we will be having a baby coming. However he knows nothing about rings, knows that I know what I want, and is happy to leave it up to me. I now feel guilty about what my original budget was, with this baby on the way. So I think to be sensible I really have to revise it (or at least, lower the expectations and qualities of the diamond that I had in mind). I'm also in Australia, and our dollar is crap at the moment. My budget is no more than $5-6KAUD (about $3-4K USD). This has led me to look at potentially getting lab grown. I’ve purchased from Vrai and Oro before and love their dainty pieces. I’ve found this ring which I love:https://www.vraiandoro.com/engagement-rings/the-solitaire-pave?gold=yellow-gold I would customise the head to be white gold, with 6 prongs. I like this diamond to go with it: https://certificate.diamondfoundry.com/download/201865.pdf which is $2349. Thoughts?
