MGR, I still can't get over how perfectly pretty the Krupp is. This is the most classic and timeless ring I have EVER seen. Do people fall to your feet when they see her?
Awww, thank you, Milday. That's what I love about it too, it is so classic. And yes, I have gotten great compliments on it by non-jewelry people and the staff at my local jewelry store. I'm left-handed so of course I sign my cc transactions w/ my left hand. I usually get a "Oh my God, that is the most beautiful ring I've ever seen."; "That is a large ring!"; or the first person nudging someone else saying, "You have to look at this ring!"
I've always been confused with rectangular shapes... how the heck do you figure out what center stone size will look good? Hmm, I probably need to go print out that sparkly cut-out chart and have fun with it.
That's what I did! I printed out the Amazon chart and cut out the shapes, then taped it to my finger. Then dork that I am, I looked to see what the diamond equivalent of that carat weight would cost. The good thing about ECs is that they are cheaper in cost per carat than RBs and PCs, as they are less in demand.
