A Little in Love with Pave Diamond Rings
Before anyone gets all excited (that include family and friends reading this blog), I am not getting engaged. However BF and I have tentatively discussed which styles might catch my interest. I have helped gal pals in the past with diamond engagement ring shopping and I do have an idea what might catch my fancy. However, when I begin to think about "my ring", I am lost. It is so much easier when the ring is on the other hand, uh..... One style that caught my eyes was the micro-pave setting by Harry Winston but I became a little reluctant after I figured out the price tag. I almost choked after learning a 2 carat ring (*not even the best color and clarity) can cost more than $50,000. What!!!! It would be nice to have a HW, but I would rather invest the premium toward the rock. For $50,000, a gal can get lots of rock else where. Although I still don't know what I may like in the end, I find myself leaning toward styles with pave settings. I think I would be happy with any of the rings by Ritani (All 4 rings in the above image). All the settings are done with pave diamonds which are delicate and classic. I don't know which center stone I like the best, I am confused! After going back and forth, we decided I would love my ring no matter what. After all, it is the idea behind the ring that is important. I can always buy other rings in the future. What do you think of pave setting and which center stone do you like the best?
