Thank you everyone for your kind words and welcoming gestures in CDi! Latinlegacy and I got engaged June 23 2012 in the comforts of my home and the permission of my parents.
I cannot tell you how lucky I am to have found a man who is loving, patient and always supportive of any and all of my endeavours. My latest endeavour was finding the perfect ring to celebrate our engagement and love and he sure was supportive of that too!
Anyway! Here are the important details!
For about a year, Latinlegacy and I have been searching for the perfect place to get the engagement ring of my dreams. When we finally settled on David and DBL, I was elated to find that the Princess Di semi-mount (aka SO2436) was the perfect semi mount for me. In fact, it was such a favorite of mine that I am pretty sure I racked up on visit counts on its page alone!
Next stop, the stone. This was a sage unto itself. It was so difficult to narrow down the shape and stone size LL and I wanted. I think this one took the longest. After much debate, we both finally come to the conclusion that we were both loving...http://www.diamondsbylauren.com/index.php/jewelry/three-stone-diamond-ring-lemoney-chocolate-pear-shape-diamond-ring
(The R470 - Fancy Brownish Yellow 1.69ct Pear Shaped diamond)
Everything about it just appealed to our senses. The sparkle, the size.. just everything fell into place when I saw it. David graciously allowed us to purchase the center stone without having to buy the entire ring. For that, I am EVER grateful and a forever customer of DBL!
Many many weeks later, I finally have it on my finger and I now found some time to take my eyes off of it and snap some wonderful pictures!
As for the total carat weight of this ring, I will leave to David to chime in since I have no clue and I don't think LL does either!
