Hello! Thanks to this website I found James Allen while I was searching for my engagement ring. My now-husband was very intimidated the one-and-only time that we went ring shopping, so he just gave me a budget and told me to get whatever I wanted. I did a ton of searching and found this site, which saved me from an eBay mistake. Originally I wanted to go to Whiteflash but since we live in the Houston area we would have had to pay sales tax, so I went with James Allen instead. Carrie was very sweet and the rings are excellent quality.

I have large hands and fingers (size 8.5) so I've always questioned whether the set is too dainty for me. I had a hard time trying on rings because none of the samples fit so I couldn't really tell what they'd look like anyway. I think my husband was a bit disappointed at first that the ring wasn't more substantial, but I've gotten so many compliments on it that he's now convinced that he got a good deal for his money.

The pics aren't great but it's the Dhanov E1 setting with matching band. The center stone is 1.09 carats, I SI2, ideal cut. Sometimes I think the stone is a bit warm and in the right light I can see a tiny black dot that must be one of the inclusions (a twinning wisp and a natural). I do love the set- it's so sparkly and unusual for around here, anyway. I just wonder sometimes if I should have gone chunkier.

So here are the bad pics (still can't figure out this camera thing). Hope you like them!

ETA- pics aren't working. I'll try to figure it out!

Waiting for pictures. I have a Danhov setting and a diamond from James Allen. Very nice settings. Mine is an E15 so I''d like to see your E 1. Sounds like you have a pretty stone in it too.

I''m not sure if this applies on PS but on another forum I use you have to name your pictures something unique or they won''t post. For example if you call your picture ''ring 1'' there is probably someone else with that name and so it won''t let your photo be called that too. Might be worth renaming the photo to something unusual that nobody else would have used.

Beautiful rings!!! I''d love to see more pics if you have them! I have admired that setting for a while, I love how the bands sit flush. They look great on you, nonsense about being too delicate! It looks pretty substantial to me LOL!

Nice set. I''d love to see some close ups. But hand shots are good. I don''t think you need to change to a chunkier set. It looks great on your hand. Not too small not too overpowering.
