I've lurked for many years and learned a lot about diamonds over the years from you all. I'm excited to be able to share with you my new engagement ring from Brian Gavin! It's a 1.76 AGS Triple 0 I/SI1 in a size 8 Tiffany style knife edge platinum band. It is amazing beautiful, we can't stop looking at it! Everywhere I go I get comments on my ring. The only thing I was surprised by was how quickly the bottom of knife edge rings become worn down. I've had the ring for three weeks and it already feels quite smooth. I'll probably have to have it polished once or twice a year to retain the tapered look.

We've picked out matching platinum Lucida bands, mine is 4mm with three stones set into the band, his is 6mm with one stone. My solitaire looks great with the band without being too matchy-matchy, although I will probably wear my engagement ring on my right hand most of the time. I'm already eyeing two thin diamond eternity bands to flank my engagement ring when I wear it on my right hand.... :devil: I love the look of a plain wedding band on its own, but I want some options too. Luckily my fiance is very supportive of my jewelry habit!

Here are pro shots:

Here's some hand shots. I thought it would be nice to get some real life perspective of what a 1.76 looks on a size 7.5/8 finger. My fingers tend to swell so I got my ring in a size 8 so it will feel more comfortable. I hate the look of a too-tight ring.

I got my fiance a "man-gagement" ring as well. I thought it was a nice symbol of our relationship that he could wear, since he wasn't interested in a TV or watch for an engagement present.

Thanks for looking!
