Hi everyone

Thanks again for all your help and all the info I learned from this site.

Also I had to buy a new lens to take the pics, that''s the excuse I''m sticking to!

Here are the pics, the specs are

Asscher
1.38ct
G
VVS2

It is so very beautiful. The setting you chose (x-prong) really lets the asscher stand out. I hope you'll post specs of the ring and asscher here too (more details as in dimensions, % and angles and the vendor you bought it from, etc).

Wonderful stone in a very nice setting. The setting looks so fluid and really sets off the stone.

Please post more info and pictures.

WOWWWWWWWWWW. Whatta ROCK & whatta setting & whatta proposal!!! You are a ROCK STAR!!! Asschers are so darn tricky and -- kaboom - you just worked that xxxxx out! FLAWLESS! MAGICAL! I'm in awe of it & you!



p.s. -- also how you managed to get a new lens out of the deal! Smart fella indeed.


ETA: I always know I WANT a stone for myself if I have the incredible urge to LICK it -- this passes that test!

BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! ring and wonderful proposal story. Do you live in London or were you there on vacation? Was she surprised? I LOVE asschers and you know I love the X prong (I have it too.) I have the matching curved w-band and while I love how it looks, I would probably not buy it again because it doesn''t stay in place all that well and I''m often twisting it back around.

Wow!!! That ring''s jaw droppingly gorgeous...no really! Don''t usually like square (or, in this case, octagonal!) diamonds, but this really is amazing. Could we possibly have a complete handshot?
