I've got it! I've got it!

Finally! I've decided what to do for my engagement ring! There was this super spectacular recycled diamond available a few weeks ago, and I snapped it up. It's freaking gorgeous! It arrived last week, and I've been taking it out and admiring it every day. .87ct, VVS2, K color! Lovely, lovely! I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of the color, since it is "lower" down on the color spectrum, but I think I'm in love. There is nothing super yellow about, it is just darkly sparkly. I'm not sure how else to explain it. I plan on setting it in 18kt yellow (what else?).


I've also decided on a design for the actual ring. But I will save that for another post!

How exciting!! I dearly love my recycled diamond, rescued out of a 1920's ring. I bet your ring will be absolutely stunning, like your work always is :D

I am so excited! Finally getting to make something for myself. :-) The ring itself isn't going to be anything fancy, pretty simple. But I think I will dress things up with the wedding band!
