Hi All,

Thanks to the forum, I became an educated diamond shopper who was able to design a ring that met both my girlfriends desires and my budget. I ended up with a .8 ct RB center stone, VS1, I color, set in a platinum band with 40 side stones totalling .3 carats. I think its absolutely beautiful, and the best part is my girlfriend picked the band out herself (at a jewelry store) but thought I couldnt afford it (until I found pricescope's online retailers!). The stone scored a .7 on the HCA and a 1B on the ACA/NAJA cut tool. It is absolutely stunning in the light! Sorry about the poor photos - all I have is my cell phone camera for now :(

Im planning on asking her in a few weeks when we go to Cabo. I've rented a private sailboat to take us around lover's beach at sunset with wine, roses, and dinner... I think she will be swept off her feet ;-)

Thanks! The setting is very unique and hard to find. I ended up going with Blue Nile since they were the only ones with the setting in a reasonable price. I dont think any of her friends will have one like it. It is very thin - 2mm, but she has very slender hands (size 5 ring) so it will be beautiful (I hope!)
