It's here!!! Yahoo!!! :woohoo:

My original engagement ring was a classic Tiffany solitaire setting .85 ct but to commemorate the birth of our first child (which will be in less than two months), my sweet DH decided we should upgrade.
So this is the result of our upgrade process: a Brian Gavin 1.62 ct I VS2 Signature Blue Round in a platinum Tiffany Style setting! I AM IN LOVE!!!
The sparkle is insane!!!!! I cannot believe how beautiful it is! It literally took my breath away! I couldn't be any happier!

Thanks again to all the ladies who have helped me in picking this ring and of course a special thank you to you, Ame, for finding this amazing stone for us!!!

Stunning!!! I love your stack, as well as the simple solitaire setting. The stone is gorgeous on your finger too!!! It has presence, but it hasn't gone over the edge of "gaudy big". Just perfect. :heart:
