I have always wanted a solitaire engagement ring. I found other rings much too busy and obnoxious. In fact, picturing myself wearing anything but a solitaire was nearly impossible for me. But, then my fiance proposed to me with this ring back in the summer and I truly could not understand how he selected a more perfect ring than the one I've always wanted. It's absolutely beautiful. The picture does not do it justice by any means. It is the perfect amount of diamonds for me and the way they are arranged into a flower shape is so elegant and dainty. This ring truly is a masterpiece. I have never seen a more perfect piece of jewelry, especially because it came from the most perfect man.
