Well guys and gals, its finally completed. After months of research, buying, and waiting, the ring is officially done!

I had a local jeweler custom make the setting. I had already purchased a diamond from GOG (who was great by the way!). The center stone is a 1.03 H VS2 AGS0. The setting consists of 2 trapezoid at .27 ctw and .65 melee.

Hopefully you guys enjoy, I really cant thank you all enough!

Now its time for the proposal. Were headed to Vegas in a few days, so i'm thinking something with the Bellagio Fountains (how cliche right haha)!

Umm. . . in your previous thread you stated the princess was from BGD. Is it GOG or BGD?

I got engaged in Vegas. At the top of the Eiffel Tower at the Paris hotel. We had gone up during the day but wanted to go up at night to see the lights of the strip. It was amazingly beautiful up there. I was stunned speechless and just hoped we didn't drop the ring! lol.

It turned out great! I'm so glad you stuck with the style your gf chose, and your jeweler did a great job interpreting the original setting to fit a princess-cut stone. Good luck with your proposal and please come back and post some hand shots!

You caught me haha! I noticed that last night but I didn't want to bother the old thread again. I did in fact get it from GOG!
I hope I don't drop it in the water, I imagine I'll be very nervous haha!

And thanks for the kind words everyone! The ring has a lot going on, but she really liked this style engagement ring, so she got her wish lol!

Wow, the ring is really pretty. There's something so sweet about a guy who puts so much effort into the engagement ring. That itself is such a great gift.

Alright well I survived, and she said YES!!!!!

Plot:
Well as I mentioned, I wanted to do this in Vegas. I know she really loves fountains, so I planned to somehow incorporate the Bellagio Fountains into it. What I did was rent what is called a "Wrap around Terrace Suite" at The Cosmopolitan. This is a suite that has a 500 sq ft balcony that overlooks the Bellagio fountains (we were on the 53rd floor). So I waited till night time till the strip was lit up, and the view was amazing. Next I waited for a water show to start, and called her over.

Her best friend was with us, and was one of the only who knew what was about to happen. So she had to cameras ready, and boy am i glad, she got the most amazing shot ever! So when the song started, I asked her how perfect this all was, and said there is no way this can get any better right? Well, it was about to lol! I went through my speech, and she said YES! Her family was waiting inside and we celebrated with some Champagne and a night on the town!

Enjoy and thanks for everything, I couldnt have done it without all of you!

What a difference it makes to see the rings on the hand sometimes. It REALLY suits her hands and looks stellar on her!

Congrats!
