yeah, the only other bit with that deal is I have to get rid of my 94Z . and... seeing as how the ring is goin to cost around $24,000.00 tho I figure thats at least 10K less than the Z is prolly gonna cost her. lol

well, its a 2.3 kt ascher cut diamond in the center. this is the origional one she designed online. but we are thinking about doing just a single stone. we went to one of the local jewelers here in town cus they special ordered her stone so we could see exactly what it looks like. its huge! but we'll see.

oh, btw. her reasoning for the price and size and all that is that
Her: "If I'm going to wear a ring the rest of my life, it better cost as much as a car!"
Me: "Well, if thats the case, then you can just buy me a car!"
Her: "ok"
Me: "Are you serious?"
Her: "If you get me the ring I want, then I'll get you whatever car you want."

That's a crazy amount for a ring! But, if you were planning on spending 24K on a Camaro but spend it on a ring only to get it back in a Camaro, more power to you! Damn nice ring, btw.

Man I'm lucky my g/f is somewhat petite. She's looking at a .98 carat princess cut center stone. the ring she wants will only be around $8,000 give or take. She isn't paying for my new car though because she wants to buy a g35 also.

The ring I was looking at is 2 ct. tw. Its a white gold solitare with side accent diamonds. It's around $7000 and I thought that was too much, my boyfriend laughed at the price because he thought that was how much you're supposed to pay. Maybe he'll get on here and read your post and he'll be pushin' for bigger and more moolah

Got my wife a .75 ct princess cut VS1, and I don't remember the color, but it was pretty good. There were two tiny inclusions in the diamond...each in opposite corners. The inclusions are covered by the prongs which hold the diamond in its place. When one looks at it closely, you can't see any inclusions whatsoever. It's very, very nice and we paid somthing like $2,500. Yes, I would have paid more, but I was broke as a joke at the time! Oh, and that amount we paid also got us the wedding band which had another 3 bagettes (sp?).

I meant the ins on the ring!!

We have valuable personal property insurance on our rings which has a market value of $7,500. A one year policy to insure the $7,500 on our rings runs $104 which comes out to $8.66 per month. If ANYTHING happens to our rings, they are paid for by USAA...or we can have USAA make us matching rings w/ as close to identical diamonds as they can find.
