eBay: 1.15ct Cushion/Baguettes Diamond Engagement Ring G/SI (item 290076345783 end time Feb-04-07 11:10:46 PST) eBay: One Ct Radiant Brilliant Cut Diamond Engagement Ring IF (item 250071998975 end time Feb-09-07 14:24:11 PST) My boyfriend casually brought up the idea of rings a few weeks ago and asked if i knew what kind of ring i wanted, how big i wanted it to be, etc. He knows I prefer white gold to yellow gold, but I'm not one of those girls who has had a ring picked out since birth. I suggested maybe we go to a jewelry store and browse a little one day so I can get an idea of what I like... but AHH! (plus, I have no idea what i like) I've been browsing around online trying to get an idea of something i might like and found these 2 rings. i like the idea of a radiant cut or cushion cut diamond, but i dont really know much about them. do they sparkle as much? will they end up being much more expensive? what's most important to look for in a diamond like that? is it better to take a picture of something i like to a jeweler who can make it, casually show my bf something i like and let him use that as inspiration, or find a ring that is actually sold somewhere as is? we've been together a while but are both pretty young so i dont want it to be too expensive... as much as buying a ring online seems like a good deal, it seems like an easy way to get ripped off unless you know what you're doing. (ive bought many authentic LVs through eBay, but its a little different) do you know where i can find more rings like these? (maybe a little better quality or slightly bigger stones? closer to a ct..) please help, i really have no experience w/ any of this edit: here's another one from the same eBay seller: eBay: 2.51 Ct Radiant Brilliant Cut Diamond Engagement Ring (item 8913413795 end time Feb-04-07 19:44:37 PST) is this a common style for "real life" jewelers?
