Hi All,
I am new here, and as is the case with most new people, I am a long time lurker! But I now have my own item of jewellery to post. My engagement ring is now in my possession, although only briefly, as I have to hand it to my partner so that he can do the whole proposal thing! Although, I am told I will get it back soon! Yay, how exciting! In the meantime, I have taken a few sneaky shots! And the jeweller also took some photos. Before the photos, comes the info on the stones! We purchased the centre stone well over a year ago. I had been doing some research on diamonds with my sister and I came across this particularly stone which met all my criteria and I think I landed myself a very good oval diamond for a novice! At a price I thought was fair and reasonable. And my gosh it sparkles! Here are the stats on the diamonds:

Centre stone: Oval
Size: 0.96 carat (7.7 x 5.61 x 3.5)
Colour: F
Clarity: VS2
Depth: 64.2%
Table: 57%
Girdle: med to thick
Culet: none
Polish: Very good
Symmetry: Very good
Fluorescence: None

Side stones: Pear (Argyle Pink diamonds)
Size: 0.165 total carat weight
Colour: 7P (fairly low on the colour chart, but pink enough to see!)
Clarity: S1

And here are some pictures from that the jeweller gave me. I will try and uplaod some that I have taken, but I have had not luck yet!

Finally figured out how to get my own photos resized so that I can post them. Here are a couple more. It is a dark and gloomy day here, so a bit hard to get nice photos. And for reference my ring size is a H, which I think is a 3 3/4 or a 4.

Oh and I am not yet engaged - have to say bye bye to my ring for a little while and pass it onto my partner to take good care of!

Thank you for all the compliments! I am very happy with how the ring turned out. I had never really seen this design anywhere, so there was some anxious moments of wondering what it will turn out like as it was a custom design! It is unique and feminine and I love it very much!
natyLad - the pink diamonds were my idea! I live near the Sydney CBD (Australia) and there are a few jewellers that have amazing pink diamond collections. I have spent many a day just window browsing and admiring some of these pieces and it was here that I got the idea for the pink diamonds and the idea of rose gold as well.

You did some good research while you were lurking, because your ring came out perfect. I love the pink pears and they certainly are pink enough to see color. I also love the delicate shade of rose gold your jeweler used. I hope that proposal comes very soon!

Thank you for all the lovely comments!

Yes, it is going to be torture waiting for the ring! But I will eventually receive this lovely ring! And I do love it more and more every day! I can't believe how lucky I am! And to add to this, I got the ring valued yesterday, and I know these are a bit of an arbitrary value, but my valuation was twice what we paid for the ring! And this was a conservative valuation! I am soo very pleased with the result and thank you everyone for taking the time to look at my "bling"!
