I finally proposed this weekend and thanks to this site was able to find perfect ring for my girlfriend. I've literally looked at hundreds of rings from this site and the sponsored vendors to eventually land on this design. So thanks to everyone because without this site I have no idea what I would have done.

I was fortunate that my experience throughout the search was great. I have nothing but great things to say about everyone I worked with. Jon and Charles at Good Old Gold were extremely helpful. I talked to Jon a couple times on the phone and he had a video of my diamond uploaded in a couple hours after talking with him. I've been waiting on an AVC since March or April and finally made the purchase at the end of August. The stone is a beautiful 2.25ct I SI1 AVC. Here is the video he made for me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Dq-5hfLj44

I then worked with Victor on the ring design and he did an amazing job. I saw a couple of Victor's designs on this site and I knew she would love the engraving so I was set on working with him. Most of our correspondence was through email and he was a pleasure to work with. We went through a couple different designs and ultimately ended up designing the Anya Solitaire, which is now on his website. It is an incredible ring and every detail is perfect. Victor emailed me the other night to ask how the proposal went and I told him she said "everything about the ring is me" which I think sums it up perfectly. Here is a video Victor sent me before he shipped the ring http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xWp6JoYfeE

Here are pictures Victor sent me and hopefully I will have hand shots this weekend. Enjoy!

Gorgeous ring, I love the little details - the swirlys on the sides, the milgrain, the kite-set diamonds in the gallery... Beautiful!

What a lovely, and comparatively sedate video by Victor. I have to say I appreciate the simplicity of it. Can't wait for handshots... that milgrain and the detail on the shank is beautiful.

Thanks everyone! It was a stressful process trying to get everything perfect and I'm thrilled with the result.

I will hopefully have some hand shots by the end of the weekend.
