Rings photo 1

Okay so it's complicated, but here's the ring that Brian proposed with:

Rings photo 3  Rings photo 4  (ring from BlueNile.com, highly recommend!)

Here's the story.  So after going ring looking together, I had fallen in love with a Tacori setting, but it was $8000, and at that point we knew there was no way we'd be able to afford that.  Then Brian came up with the idea of buying the simplest ring he could, and having a custom wrap made to make it look like the Tacori.  So he bought the ring above, and we started visting jewelers to find out about custom.  Well long story short, no jewelers could have made anything to look like that, and we weren't satisfied with what we had found out.  Well in the midst of all that, I found another ring at Fred Meyer that I really liked.  So we re-designed my final ring to include the elements of the Fred Meyer ring.  We are having Cooper and Cooper custom build the ring, that will include my original e-ring.  The final ring will look like this:

I LOVE the "floating" diamonds on either side of the center stone.

We booked a 7 day Princess cruise to the Caribbean, May 17-24, 2009.  We went to San Juan, St. Thomas, Antigua, Barbuda, and Bermuda, then sail up to NYC.  We spent 2 extra days in NYC and explore!  Really excited!!  We went snorkeling and parasailing in St Thomas, and ziplining in Antigua, and snokeling/tanning in Bermuda!  In NYC, we went to Ellis Island, ground zero, Central Park, and out to dinner to Esca.
