I have been all over the place making a decision. when he first took me shopping i decided i wanted a super-simple bezel or half-bezel with no sidestones or pave. 1. i was mortified by how much the settings were after he is already spending so much. and 2. i thought i had to have something set super low with no prongs or else it would catch and smack on everything. but after spending so much time lurking around pricescope ans talking to people IRL, it seems that this is not a huge problem. and my guy keeps saying that he can afford it, the money is not an issue, and most importantly he just wants me to have something really special that i love and we are both proud of.

so after much time scouring pricescope, i think i want something vintage-inspired. i love the simplicity of Haven's solitaire (but my guy wants something more ornate and blingy), and i love the victor canera "sophia" http://www.victorcanera.com/jewelry/engagement-rings/the-sophia-french-cut-solitaire.html.. maybe something with french cut sidestones and some engraving and filigree? my guy fell in love with this setting at the jewelers, so we will check it out over the weekend: http://www.alekvartan.com/collections.cfm?CollectionID=100&ShowItem=SM8433&StartRow=17

we'll see!!!!

Excited for you!

Thanks! I see the Sophia quite a bit around here, but I've never seen anything like it in real life. My guy and I went to the jeweler today and looked at some different styles. I definitely printed out pictures from PS and brought them with me! Super excited! Hopefully I have a ring in the next couple months!!!

Did you end up choosing one, or did you select some styles and your BF will make the final decision?

I brought pictures of what I like to the jeweler, but ultimately it's up to him. I know he has a budget, and I don't want him to spend more than he is comfortable with. He had good taste, and he knows what I like so he will work with the jeweler to design something in the style I like that's within his budget.
