A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words...Taking Her Breath Away is worth even more!!

By Nancy DeRoo on 2/8/2019

A picture is worth a thousand words!  Give her the ring of her dreams…and make sure you take a picture, whether you snap it on your phone or use a Canon with a zoom lens.

Let us help you with that choice.  We can show you many different shapes.  ALWAYS know what her preference is, but it’s good to see others as well.

Personally, I think we should all have one of each shape and we can mix it up a bit right?!  (Oh, sorry I must have dozed off there for a second and thought I was rich)  I think having gone through this process once.  I might add color to my engagement ring or even make the center stone a Light Champagne South Sea Pearl (can you say ooooooooo!) with Champagne half moon diamonds on each side.  You get the drift; you have the ability to dream outside the proverbial box.

Start with looking at what we have and expand on that.  Seeing a stone in a setting sets the tone for oh, too much or oh, not enough!  The setting sometimes changes what you thought you really wanted. For example I’m showing you two different Princess cuts and two different Cushion cuts.  Adding or subtracting side stones changes the look.  How those side stones are set (at an angle or straight) makes a difference.  But, I have to tell you the Round Brilliant on the header page is a real favorite!

I’m including a few pictures that I chose from our website:
