It''s beautiful. Can I ask how long it took from when you 1st placed the order? I too bought from GOG and got a Vatche setting. It''s been about 3 weeks and the wait is killing me although I know it will be worth it. Tehy said about 4 weeks. Just curious how long it took to get yours adn what the process was. Did they call, email, morse code??? Thanks and Good luck with the proposal. It''ll be great.

Hi trottier,

Did you get the diamond you had on hold? I've been wondeing if you got it.

I also got my stone and Vatche setting from GOG. They told me 3-4 weeks, and it came back to them exactly 3 weeks later. They called and it was sent out to me that day, arrived the next morning.

Ellen,
I did go through with the Round .75 G VS2 H&A from GOG with the x prong vatche with princess cut diamonds. I got the email today with the pics. I was pretty pumped today to say the least. I don''t want to hijack this thread so I will start another.

Hi Scott,

It actually was quicker than they told me (3 weeks). It took about 2 weeks, and they emailed me (no morse code). I''m glad to hear that you got pics now though of your ring. :)

Thanks for the comments everyone! Everyone is going platinum so I thought, yellow gold is the way to go. :) I like to fight what is "in" and go with what works. I have nothing against platinum lovers, because settings are very beautiful in platinum as well, but not only do I like this setting in yellow gold with platinum prongs, but my girlfriend is a yellow gold girl.

The ring arrived today and it''s beautiful!

I just hope it''s the right size. My only way of trying to find out was by measuring her finger while she was sleeping. And that wasn''t easy... Either way though, we can get it resized if it doesn''t fit perfectly...

Anyway, I''m very happy with the ring and with everyone who helped me at GOG.

I will definitely be posting more pics soon. I just have to find time when she isn''t around to see the ring... which will be difficult considering we live together... I will have plenty of time to take and post pics of the ring on her finger after I propose in several weeks.

I can''t stop looking at it, but I''m at work, so I''m having to restrain myself from taking it out of it''s box and looking at it. Not only that, but my girlfriend called as I am writing this, and I soooooooooooo want to tell her and show her the ring tonight... I''ll just have to wait and follow through with my evil plan. Muah ha haaaaaaaa!

Measuring her finger while sleeping... quite a funny mental image.

I''m sure you got pretty close, and the style of the ring should be easy to resize if necessary.

Congratulations and good luck! While it is great to have all the input from the sweet, patient and knowledgeable PS-women, it is also nice to see that other guys are here who are putting in a lot of time and effort to get the perfect ring for their future fiances. And you did a great job!

Thanks for the compliment... but I really like the compliments you gave to the sweet, patient, and knowledgeable PS-women so that you didn''t get your head ripped off. jk. ;-) I know that their input has helped me a great deal in learning about rings and diamonds.

Pessimistic, I got the email from GOG with the ring pics but when I go to attach them to a new thread, it gives me an error message. Can you let me know what you did to post the pics. Did yoiu save them, how did you save them...etc... I am clueless here and really want to show someone the ring since I can''t show her.
