Well the mounting is 14k white gold, the stone is a princess cut, .96cts, Clarity is SI1, cut grade is very good. I bought it at Jareds.

I was thinking of going to her work and asking her right there in front of the customer service desk in the the Lowes where she works, im sure there would be at least one or two co workers there to witness it.

Good luck man. I'm 21 and just came back from Perú after being there for four months. I proposed while I was down there and we are currently working on the Visa process right now. Good luck bud, hope she knows how to cook!

And that picture doesn't even do it justice, it looks way better in real life. I liked it as soon as the saleswoman put the stone in the setting.

You need to have her paged over the intercom requesting assistance in the stone department.

I consider myself very lucky, not only is she smart and attractive but she likes to and is good at cooking. I have been eating much more Asian style food since I met her and now actually like it. I have never been much of a fan of that type of food.
