I -love- looking at other people's engagement rings! I've actually been a little diamond obsessed since FI proposed. I like to tell him that he created a monster :P
I haven't seen another post like this on here, so let's get this started for some pretty things to look at on this Monday morning!
If you want to post stats on your diamonds that's fine too!
I'll start with mine! I've been too lazy to take my DSLR, Macro Lens, and ring outside to take a nice flower shot in the sun-- so all my photos are inside (with bad light) with my nice camera or outside with my iPhone... oddly enough the iPhone pics are best! I can't wait to get our engagement pics this week, she did a LOT of ring shots
Mine is a classica cut diamond (see cut below) which is an original cut. It's got the step cut facets like an asscher but has the sparkle like a round or princess cut.
.74 carats, F color, S12 with 14k white gold channel-set cathedral setting with .26 carats of rounds. So a perfect 1 carat total
And here's my to-be wedding set!
And one of the few photos I've taken with my nice camera-- this was the day after he proposed on the ornament my mom gave us in our gift basket the night he proposed
She gave us a cute gift basket with handmade margarita glasses, a pitcher, alcohol to make margaritas, limes, and a book of 101 margarita recipes and this cute little ornament
