At last....I have my ring! I'm having a hard time getting good photos that show how truly sparkly it is, but I'll share a few that I took anyway.
Even without good photos, I am so happy with how it turned out--I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful ring. From every angle I can see so many tiny little rainbows. (I just cant seem to capture that on film right now.) Maybe when we have some sunlight I can try some outside to see how they turn out.
Thanks for stopping by and thank you so much for your well wishes. It really means a lot to me. I hope you have a great day!*It's hard to see in the photos, but it is a round diamond in a square setting. I had originally wanted a square (princess cut) stone, but there's just nothing that seems to compare with the sparkle you get from a round cut. (IMO). I figured that this way I get the best of both worlds and a more unique ring too. I really have to get some better pics to post. :-)
