both rings on hand, with the little white gold band my mom bought me years ago (it''s dirty, sorry!). I''m thinking of giving it back to my mom to wear for awhile, so it does''t look so engagement-y...

Hope you all enjoyed them...I actualy am in the video edting business, but if there is anything harder than photographing rings, it's shooting video of them! I was gonna post a small file that you could link to, but the video will have to wait until we get some sunshine...proabably sometime in late July or so...

Thanks again everyone for your help. I'm thrilled with my ring, and I hope my mom will enjoy wearing hers to my wedding. I'll shoot video of me giving it to her in Sept some time if I can and share it with you.

Gorgeous! Your mom is going to be soooo thrilled! Can''t ya just give it to her Sunday for Mother''s Day? You must be on pins and needles!

BTW My husband thought I made up the term May Grey today! I told him that it''s a popular term here in So Cal but he says he''s never heard anyone else call it that!

OMG they are both so gorgeous! Your engagement ring is so stunning - and looks so beautiful on your hand! I love the substantial look of it. Your mom''s ring is so dainty and beautiful - she truly is lucky to have such a thankful and appreciative daughter!!!

Congrats on your engagement!

oh TG those are both just FABULOUS!!!! I love both the rings, such different styles...beautiful stones and your hands are great too. and of course gotta love the post-it!!!

please more pictures when the sun comes out! congratulations and honestly i think that if you were to pop out with the ring for your mom on sunday, it wouldn''t be a huge deal. i just love that kind of idea. 4 months is a long time to wait!!

CONGRATS on your engagement!

What beautiful rings- yours turned out perfectly, the setting really compliments it!
I also love the setting on the M-ring. How are you ever going to wait 4.5 months to give it to her??

OK, so I know you just got your ring but I''m curious to know what kind of w-band you''re planning to pair with that beauty!

FABOOOO times TWO!

I do do do do think it''s North/South now from those pix! What a SOOO-Prise! Cool! And I adore the setting Mark at ERD picked out for your mom. I''m starting to think he''s a genius!

CONGRATS times TEN!

p.s -- as a producer, I just have to ask: Final Cut or Avid??

Thanks everyone. My mom just came over a bit ago, and I was so tempted to give it to her. But I stayed strong. However I may give it to her for mother's day...she's been trying to be helpful with my FI's parents coming tomorrow and I told her she was stressing me out.

I feel bad...thank goodness my mom loves me unconditionally.

Anyway, I'll try holding out as long as I can.

Mara, I will post some pseudo sunshine pics in a sec. but I live in an apartment complex (think of something that looks like Melrose Place with the pool in the middle) so I couldn't stay out there too long since people will think I'm nuts and I don't care for people to see I've got two diamond rings...

Ugh...girl! I work for a competitor of those two products. Our product is great, but not considered "pro" enough by the professionals. So the answer is neither. Did you by any chance go to NAB?

And yes, it's N/S on both rings. The appraiser confirmed it...inkblot positive, mystery solved!!!

OK, here they both are on one hand. These aren''t the best, but I had to be fast! They are so lovely out in the sun. Actually, I am so happy that it''s finally sunny out that I would be happy snapping photographs of roast beef on my hands.
