    Hi everyone

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

    I proposed at the top of the London Eye in our own private capsule with champagne and chocolates, and she said yes!!!!

    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
    Vatche royal X-prong

    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.[​IMG]

    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?
