    You can't get better clarity than IF, and you can't get a better color than D. I love my emerald cut, though. :)

    I wonder if it feels really heavy to wear it. I tried on a friend's ring once that was a carat, and it seemed heavy.


    I don't care if jewelry is valuable or if it's from Target, as long as it's pretty.

    I have a 2.25 carat emerald cut set in a very thick, heavy gold band with 32 princess cut diamonds in the band. When you hold it in your hand, it's very heavy. When it's on the finger, I don't feel it at all. The band is 3/8 inch wide, so it's pretty substantial.

    Your hubby must really love you, that's a big rock.

    My dad gave my mom a quarter carat diamond. She still wears it-she had it reset for her right hand after they divorced. His second wife wears a plain band. (Dad is a cheapskate).

    It's the "25 year service award", hardly the ring I started with. :) My dad gave my mother 1/4 carat when they married, "because that's what I could afford". Very sensible. Later, she had it reset in platinum, with her mother's engagement diamond and other diamonds in the setting. Dad was very pleased when I told him the recent appraisal amount.

    Once a ring gets to be the size of the one in this thread, they sometimes don't "look real".
