Hearts on Fire or Whiteflash: I presented the e-ring to my gal on a Cruise to the Caribbean and she said yes (whew!). As great as the ring turned out - she was so happy with the proposal - that she barely looked at the ring much that afternoon - just looked at me - with a big happy smile (LOL!). Of course after that day she regained her senses - and started to look at it - and now she can''t stop looking at it and showing it to her friends. Here is the place I proposed - in the wedding chapel on Paradise Point in St. Thomas. http://paradisepointtramway.com/ Also - if you have ever been on a cruise - they were pushing Diamonds international all the time. ""Cheapest place to buy your gems on the planet!"" Every port had diamond/sapphire/gem stores. We had fun looking at the dark sapphires and dull diamonds. We even got to look at the HOF''s and 88 cut diamonds they were pushing. I got to put a 0.43ct SI-2 G HOF next to my gal''s .41 G SI-1 AC''s. Nice - but the ACA''s were better ---- and holy cow! --- They wanted $1600 for that .43ct HOF ! Also my Appraiser was very impressed with the quality of your custom setting saying ""top notch/exceptional"" - so send thanks to your ""gold benders"".
