2-1/2 CT. T.W. Certified Framed Princess-Cut Diamond Engagement Ring in 14K White Gold
My fiance calls it my igloo.
This ring style wasn't my first choice, but my fiance chose it so I have grown to love it. The diamonds sparkle beautifully and I love that the band is pave set with 44 diamonds. I was able to get the ring sized (went down 3/4 of a size), and upon getting it back one of the pave band diamonds felt loose but was easily and quickly fixed. I have not had any serious problems with diamonds falling out, etc., and I've had the ring for almost a year. The only thing is finding a wedding band that I feel compliments it. Many sales associates try to steer me towards pave ones, but I think it's tacky looking. The rhodium maintenance is bothersome to me (because I don't like being without my ring), but required with most white golds.; however, it looks brand spanking new afterwards!

Such a surprise!
My fiance surprised me and proposed with this ring, what a surprise! It is beautiful and sparkles very well. I have seen a variation in the diamond clarity from store to store, but in an I1-I2, that is to be expected. The employees in the store were able to match me up with a nice diamond! This band can't be sized, so make sure to allow for the 10-12 weeks it takes to special order if your size isn't a standard. Well worth the wait though, I love it!

We went to look for a new wedding band and my husband saw this beautiful ring. When we put it on my hand with the band, it just made an amazing set. The ring is gorgeous. It sparkles and the diamond quality is great. The price was right too!!! I definitely recommend this ring to wow your lady!!!

I loved it at first!!
My fiance got me the 1-1/2 ctw version of this ring on 08/20/10. We have had 10 diamonds fall out since. (thankfully he got the lifetime warranty). This last time we sent it in to have one of the side diamonds replaced, the sales lady suggested that we have the gold built up on the sides to help hold the diamonds in. I said ok, if this will help. It came back 4 weeks later with a ledge of gold sitting in front of the diamond with a gap between. It wasn't spread all the way down the sides and looked very tacky. The sales lady didn't notice till I said something. They sent it back to have the gold ledge blended. The jeweler told her that it needs to be like that to hold the diamonds in. She informed him that the gap is not acceptable. Then it came back, I was told it looked a lot better. I go to pick it up and see that yes the gap is gone but now the edges of the ledge were left sharp and one side comes down further than the other and makes it very displeasing in appearance. I asked if this was in a display looking this way would she purchase it. Her response was "No". So it is going back again. I told them to just remove the extra gold build up because I don't believe the jeweler working on it can be trusted to get it right. They told me it will be another 3 weeks. They also gave me the option to trade up, of course that means spending twice the amount already spent on a ring that has spent almost as much time in repair as it has on my finger. If my fiance would've been informed that Pave settings are so horrible than he never would have purchased this ring.
