Hi everyone! I am new here. I have a dilemma. I have been trying to pick out my engagement ring for months now and I have made no progress. The longer I go without choosing a ring, the longer he waits to propose. Please help me! I have no idea what I am doing. I do have an idea of what I want though.

Here is what I am looking for:

Setting:
White Gold or Platinum (depending on budget)
Prongs: Platinum Chevron prongs (possibly pave'')
Pave half band on one side or three sides
Matching wedding band (a must)
3.0 mm
Size: 6.5

Diamond:
Princess
Color: D-G (no yellow at all)
At least 1 ct (would like up to 1.5 ct)
VS2 - SI2
no visible inclusions on top

If you know of any settings or diamonds, I would really appreciate your help. I am not picky, but when it comes to this ring, I have been waiting a LONG time. I want it to be perfect.

I am also hesitant of buying a diamond or setting online. Can anyone please ease my fears and let me know of some reputable vendors? Thanks a bunch! And Happy Mardi Gras!

So so sorry. The budget for the stone and setting is $7000 (with wedding band). We are trying to save for our house.

I appreciate any help. Thanks!

Ask for matching band (they will have them) and see if they will negotiate a price for you since you are buying all three from them... others on here have had some success negotiating with them.
