My "new" engagement ring, with 0.72 ct F/VVS2 center stone, sidestones F-G VS 0.2 ctw, on an approx 5.5 size finger.

When we got engaged many years ago, I never wanted a solitaire, just a plain gold band (which is the most usual in my country). However, always loving diamonds, I really started to want one, and now my dream has come true. To my joy, my local jeweller could use my original ring (which was as wide as my wedding band), to fashion a much thinner shank, with sidestones and WG delicate prongs.

My very first good symmetry certed antique diamond. I was so ecstatic when I got the cert I know it’s difficult to come across an antique diamond with good symmetry, but not impossible. IMG_1032.jpeg IMG_0748.jpeg

I love the individual stones as well as the moi et toi design! It's a much more fluid version than what I've seen previously, which suits the uniqueness of both stones.

This is really a beautiful stone!

Good lord, that's a gorgeous ring! Congratulations on your beautiful new acquisition! Wear in good health. :wavey:

Thank you! It took a lot of thought, the sapphire is supposed to represent me, and the diamond is supposed to represent my son. He is facing a very difficult surgery (spinal fusion from neck to tailbone) this week and this was kind of like a pat on the back, “we’ve gotten through this much.”

Perfect proportions! From finger to diamond to shank to diamonds in the shank, everything looks meticulously designed.

Thank you, I am so in love with it I get quite distracted when wearing it, just losing myself in the brilliance and sparkle - which is the whole point of diamonds, for me, just drowning in their beauty...

Oh, I am blushing :)
I am very happy with the end result, and also so happy with my local jeweller and his assistants. They really understood what I was looking for, and just made the whole experience so joyful

There is just a special place in my heart for the more petite sized diamonds. There is just something undeniably classic and sweet about them. I mean who would imagine that such a "small" stone could generate such light.

So if you are just as hungry as I am...
post your pictures and stone specs ( if you have them) of your rings w/ 1ct or under center stone. I know when I was searching I loved to look at stones that were in my perspetive range..this would be a good look book for many people...

I don't think I posted this ring in this thread when I got it last year. It's a petite platinum solitaire from the 1910s-20s, with a .29 ct. transition or OEC. It's warm, I'm guessing in the J-L range? The clarity is low--it has an open feather with the chip/cavity on the table. But the cut is so beautiful and the setting is so deliciously deco that it's one of my favorite rings. The girl who got this from her fiancé a century ago must have been over the moon!

Blurry hand shot, but it shows the scale:

You can see the chip/cavity in these shots (top left of the table in the first photo, bottom right in the second):

So much care taken to make this little ring. It's much smaller and more delicate in real life.
