You guys are too kind! (If only family would say such nice things! They've been really quiet . . . well, at least the ladies have been.)

Specs:
1.22 carat, F, VVS2.

I haven't gotten the papers yet to know the exact total carat weight, but lots of sparkle! ;-) :love:

I'll try to post some new photos. I have to bring out my good camera and see if I can't get better hand shots. And I'll do more sides, profiles, etc. I know I looked on here often while searching and those all helped a lot!

Lovely, I have not seen that ring before. Which cut of diamond is in it? The novo?

The cut is cushion modified brilliant.

1.22 carats, f, vs1 (sorry for mistake earlier)
6.55 x 5.94 x 3.95
Depth 66.5
Table 63
Cut excellent
Polish excellent
Symmetry vg
Girdle med to slightly thick, faceted
No culet
.38 total weight rb

While I can sometimes see crushed ice, it's not like the typical cmb. It really looks like a rb in a rec pillow shape. I can see into it too, there is a nice depth to it.

Sweetie, it's called jealousy! ;-)

Your ring is stunning. Congratulations on the anniversary, and enjoy your gorgeous new ring proudly!

Hi Frosted
Your ring is just lovely!!! Wear it in good health.

It's a bummer re your family's response. I got a similar reaction with my 10 year anniversary ring which was also a Tiffany. Anyone would have though that I'd robbed a bank or something...! I put it down to different values (in the older generation) and jealousy I'm the younger crowd.
Have fun and enjoy!

Thanks again everyone. We really love it, but dh is a little sad at the underwelming response. He feels everyone should be blown away for the price we paid! My mom says it looks more like a cocktail ring, his sister wondered if there was a big diamond in there. His mom didn't even comment, just changed the subject.

I'm wondering if it is just the fact that it's totally different for them that they don't know what to think . . . Or the halo makes the diamond seem smaller?

Dh kept joking that we should return it for something more traditional. I think I am too attached to it. But I'd gladly accept another ring in addition! ;-) maybe at 20 years . . . .

I'll be taking more pics today so stay tuned . . .

hate to say it- but it sounds like some of the ladies in your family are envious of your stunning anniversary gift :tongue:

Ring box glamour shots (of the ring). . . (although, I think the ring box actually deserves some shots of itself . . . it's beautiful!)

Omg, that is absolutely gorgeous!!! I can only imagine how fun and exciting it is to wear such a beautiful ring! Please ignore your family's insensitive remarks - and shame on them for making them. They better be careful, their jealousy is showing. It's a spectacular ring, wear it with joy and pride! Congrats!

Thanks again for all the love!

I do wear it as an engagement ring. Right now we are on the look out for a band that would go with it.

I thought about the TIffany metro, but it's pretty thin and wg . . . I just didn't want another band to have to REALLY worry about. I have four young kids so I'm busy and always doing something with my hands. I want a band that complements the ring without taking away, but also can stand on it's own so when I'm washing dishes, playing soccer with the kids, I don't feel "naked".

The SA in Tiffany's showed me a 2mm channel set band that looked pretty good, at least under TIffany's spotlighting. I didn't see the metal at all. I will have to try it again though and look at it under the counters to see if I would notice the difference under normal lighting conditions.

Any other ideas? Or vendors to look at who might have something similar for cheaper? I'm thinking maybe a 2.2mm might be perfect because I was undecided about the 2 and 2.5mm . . . the 2 looked better with the ring but the 2.5 was nicer on its own.
