Vera Wang LOVE Collection 3/4 CT. T.W. Diamond Frame Engagement Ring in 14K White Gold
Wonderful Decision; Don't listen to bad reviews!
I got this ring from my fiancÚ last year and absolutely love it. I have gotten SO many compliments on it, it's unreal. It's unique and affordable for someone who isn't looking to spend 5k+ on a ring. I would make this decision over and over again. I think a lot of halo style rings get too large looking, but this one fits perfectly on your finger and doesn't look like you're over doing it. It is SO sparkly and shines up wonderfully. I've never felt like the halo was taking over the diamond [like another reviewer stated]. And also, if you have concern's about Vera; let me tell you, you shouldn't. Someone had said you couldn't buy other brands of rings to go with it; and that's just untrue. My wedding band is not a Vera, purchased at Zales, and they didn't pressure me into the Vera at all; in fact, they will send it off to Vera to be soldered if you need it to be. The ONLY con about Vera is that when you get it sized or whatnot they have to send it to their main jeweler in Texas; so it can take a few weeks.
This being said, I have never had a problem with Zales or with this ring. I get compliments all the time, even though it is only a 1/3 carat ring. I'm happy I made my choice; I promise you won't be disappointed!

My fiance and I were finally engaged on 12/18/2011 after dating for nearly 7 years. I was looking at the rings online and fell in love with vintage ring settings, not even looking at the Vera Wang collection at first. At first glance, even this ring was out of our original "budget" and I thought the ring was set a bit too high. But after wearing it for all of 2 seconds I could not put it down and my fiance knew it was the "one". I am so glad that he included me in the ring buying process because now I have a ring that I am absolutely in loooove with and adore showing off.
Added bonus: Vera puts sapphires in all of her ring settings and it also happens to be my birthstone. So it doubles as a beautiful birthstone ring for me with a fun story. I also now have my "something blue" for the wedding!
Great design Vera and thanks for including some rings that are a bit more realistic for even the smallest of budgets! :-)

SHE WAS BLOWN AWAY
I'VE WAITED 15 YEARS TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROPOSE TO PLACE A RING ON MY FIANCEE'S HAND, SHES BEEN THE LOVE OF MY LIFE ALTHOUGH SHE NEVER KNEW HOW I FELT ABOUT HER.
I GAVE HER THE RING LAST NIGHT, IMMEDIATEL TEARS, UNCONTROLLABLE SMILE, AND THE RADIANCE ONLY A WOMAN CAN GIVE WHEN SHES DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH YOU. THE FIRST WORDS OUT OF HER MOUTH "BABY, OMG, IT IS BEAUTIFUL", SHE CLOSED THE BOX, HUGS HUGS HUGS, OPENS THE BOX AGAIN "I LOVE IT, OMG BABY I LOVE YOU." CLOSES THE BOX...OPENS IT AGAIN "IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL, I LOVE IT, I LOVE YOU." CLOSES THE BOX. AT THIS POINT I TAKE THE BOX FROM HER AND ASK HER, "LETS SEE IF IT FITS, ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?" SHES CRYING CRYING THE WHOLE TIME. SHE SAYS, "ARE YOU READY?" I SAY "OF COURSE, ABSOLUTELY." I TAKE THE RING OUT, YES ITS MAGNIFICENT, LOOK AT IT...SLIDE THE RING ON HER FINGER. PERFECT FIT!
WITHOUT A DOUBT, THIS RING IS ESQUISTE, MAGNIFICENT, AND NOTHING SHORT OF BRILLIANT. THE SHINE AND SPARKLE IS SOMETHING TO SEE IN PERSON. I'M MORE THAN PLEASED, IM THRILLED THIS WAS MY FINAL SELECTION. IT WILL DEFINITELY BRING TEARS TO HER EYES. ITS PERFECTION!

Stunning From Every Angle!
When I tried it on at the store my boyfriend (now fiance) knew that this was the one! He said my face just lit up. It sparkles from every angle! I love the hidden blue sapphires on each side, and all the accent diamonds. It has a vintage look while also the modern look of a halo type setting.
The setting does sit up off your finger a bit, but it's not too tall that you'd keep hitting it on things. However, there are a lot of little prongs that seem to catch those pesky loose threads on clothing and towels.
When I took my ring in for it's 6 month inspection, I decided to look at wedding bands. I tried on the actual Vera Wang wedding bands but, being the picky person I am, I didn't like the fact that the diamonds on the wedding band went further on the sides than the engagement ring. I wanted something that lined up.
I spotted the 1/5 CT. T.W. Diamond Double Row Contour Wedding Band in 14K White Gold (in my product recommendations) and tried it on. My heart skipped a beat, it was PERFECT!
The diamonds on the band lined up with the engagement ring. The contour on the band had just enough of a dip that it sat flush with the engagement ring. It's also a lower setting so that it doesn't cover the blue sapphire or accent diamonds. It adds just enough sparkle without overpowering the engagement ring. I highly recommend this band to anyone who has this ring!
If you're thinking about getting this ring, do it! You won't be disappointed!
