I did indeed proposed and we are now engaged! She absolutely loves the ring, and it just so happens that she was traveling back to her family. So her family has seen the ring. I hear nothing but good raves about it. Most importantly she can't stop looking at it. The ACA geometry is definitely a plus, with the sparkling so blinding! I am glad you convinced me to go that route.
Again, thanks for all your help in finding the best for what I could afford, and also with your wisdom and knowledge on all the aspects of a ring. I am now much more learned in the ways of the diamond, and it was funny because we funneled through all her old jewelry just to see the difference: and wow what a difference. I was obsessed with looking at it in different lighting conditions, day and night, sun and clouds. and now she is obsessed with looking at it too. We went to the store to compare brilliance/scintillation, and it was extremely noticeable. This would not have been possible without your assistance, and your efforts to help me go through every step.
I cannot thank you enough Katie, but thanks. Hope all is well with you and your dogs!
