Vera Wang LOVE Collection 1-1/2 CT. T.W. Oval Diamond Three Stone Engagement Ring in 14K White Gold
My original ring from Zales kept having stones fall out, and VARIOUS other issues, so we needed to get a whole new ring. This was our choice =) It is beautiful, and sparkles well. There is an inclusion on the center diamond that drives me nuts, but I am sure in a few years we will get it replaced with a different diamond, and possibly a larger one. This center is HUGE though. I never realized that oval cuts would appear larger. My original had a 1/2 ct princess cut, and it did not look nearly as big as this one does. We are having trouble finding a band to match, we may need to get a custom one made. But that will be down the line once we save up. Sadly this was not a planned purchase, so we are limited as to what we can afford jewelry-wise right now. That all being said, I love it! The oval shape makes my finger look slimmer and longer. I get tons of compliments on it (as I did with my first ring), so I like the attention *wink wink*
This is most certainly a ring for a girl who wants something a little bit different, with a vintage feel. The sales lady told us that no one else had bought it from northeast Indiana, so right now... I am one-of-a-kind! Pretty cool =)
One thing that bothered us, was that we had to get a new ring to begin with.... and they made us buy a whole new warranty! We got no discount of any kind! Soooooo I contacted the regional manager, and he was VERY nice to us and gave us a refund for the original warranty. So that was helpful. Seems like the sales team in-store, do not really have the power to make offers like that. If you are having these kinds of run-ins with Zales, I would try and contact someone higher-up. They seem to understand that things like this happen, and they were extremely helpful in fixing mistakes made on their end. =)

My now fiancÚ surprised me with this ring over the long holiday weekend (Memorial Day). We had looked at rings prior and had picked out a handful of them that I liked. It wasn't until I was walking out of the store that I noticed this beauty on someone else's hand. Normally I'm more into square cut stones like princess and cushion, so I didn't even give it the time of day until then. Seeing it on her hand, the sparkle and size of it was beautiful beyond words. My fiancÚ didn't act so sold on it, I guess cause he didn't wanna give it up that he would be purchasing it, but I was ecstatic when I found that he did! I have gotten so many compliments on it in just one week of having it, everyone says it looks like a ring for a princess! Men--get this ring for your woman! She won't be disappointed. My only complaint is that we were told we most likely will need a band custom made to fit it exactly, fortunately we have awhile before having to worry about that though. PS--Dana was awesome!

My fiancÚ proposed to me yesterday with this ring and it is stunning! We had browsed other stores and I couldn't decide what I liked. This ring stood out above the rest and was also more affordable than similar rings at other stores.The photos do NOT do it justice. It is soooo sparkly! I love the vintage feel and the three ovals sets it apart. I love that it's not a really common style, but still modern as well. I only rated the quality a 4 because the center stone is just ever so slightly dull/yellow. But you really need to be looking closely to notice. Overall I am so happy!
It's way too big in my photos - we are sending it out to be resized. Zales estimated about 3 weeks for that.
