I finally get to show off my engagement ring! My boyfriend proposed over the weekend in Geneva (...underground at CERN for all the nerds out there...), and so now it's time to share the goods with Pricescope as well! It's a 5.05 carat VVS2 W-X color. We had Victor Canera do the setting, his Emilya in rose gold.

Stuuuunnnniiing. I mean the size? Shut up. But the color combination is so beautiful, its somehow "normal" yet "unique" at the same time. Congrats on the engagement and the show stopping diamond ring!

OMG :love: I read and scrolled and let out an audible "oooooooooohhhhhh"!!!!!

I do not normally like a big RB but this, wow!

ETA: is it a W-X on the yellow scale or W-X brown??? It looks like brown and this just proves how delicious light browns are!!! Are there any modifying colors? I want all the details!

This is such a beautiful ring!!! The warmth of the diamond in combination with the rose gold is stunning :love:
A true classic. The Emilya is very very pretty in rose gold.

Congrats with your engagement. I wish you a great life together :wavey:

I cannot stop staring at that stone!! The colors are mesmerizing!!! Gorgeous!!!! :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl:

And, my best friend from HS and I want to know whether you and/or your FI went to Stuy, because proposing at a particle accelerator is certainly something we would do.

We're both Chemical Engineers so CERN has been on the bucket list for awhile. It's currently down for maintenance which means you can tour underground and actually see the open detectors. It was pretty amazing. Plus I got a ring... :love:

It's a W-X on the brown scale with no modifying colors. I didn't want a yellow stone or one that was too dark brown. I think some really beautiful diamonds are overlooked in this color range and it certainly makes a fantastic engagement ring. I love the soft, warm colors of the brown and rose gold together. :D The diamond is from Leibish & Co. I'm sure a lot of folks on here are aware, but they specialize in fancy colored diamonds.

Thank you for sharing! I love seeing a pure light brown, I've seen quite a few from visiting DBL in person and they make the most spectacular pieces, especially in rose gold. Your ring is such a unique treasure :appl:

WOW, what a stunning ring! One of the most beautiful diamonds I've ever seen was a light brown at the smithsonian. I adore this color. Congratulations!!
