Like I said in my E. Chicken thread (lol), FF and I are both so busy at school, so we really don't have much time. However, for the past few days we've been looking at diamonds (online, but we'll visit some brick & mortar stores during Spring Break).

I thought I wanted a round brilliance or a cushion, but now I really have my heart set on the marquise cut (the proportion has to be good, though: Not too long and narrow, but not too short and stout either) because a good one makes your fingers look so feminine and slender.

I'm so excited! I feel like it's happening so fast and I'm kind of freaking out a little.

If we decide to have a wedding reception (we're still deciding between that and eloping to Italy), you can bet that engagement chicken will be served.

YAY!
Any idea of a potential setting yet?
Bezel halo!

I''m hoping to find a diamond that isn''t white (like canary or champagne color), and have it set in a rose gold bezel and halo, while the rest of the ring would be unplated white gold (the color is much softer than white gold that''s been dipped in rhodium).
