My fiance told me I can choose any ring I wanted and after months and months of research I decided on Agape. I really liked the style/setting of the Agape ring vs.
other websites and the price was very modest compared to mined diamonds. I must say the ring is very beautiful. I am not affiliated with the company in any way but decided to share my experience since some of the reviews I read here made me very nervous about my fiance's purchase, but decided you don't know if you don't try, so decided to just go with it anyway. My ring feels like an expensive piece of fine jewelry.
My boyfriend proposed on the beach and I couldn't stop staring at it. I did think it could have sparkled more but when I got home and compared them to my real diamonds there was no comparison. The Agape ring made my real diamonds look dull and dingy (granted I do need to professionally clean my diamond rings). My perfect engagement ring was something I dreamed of since a little girl.
What sold me also is the fact that I am clumsy, I don't really wear a lot of jewelry, I don't want to lose my mind if my ring should get lost or stolen and most of all I couldn't justify having my love spend $22,000+ (DeBeers price for a 1.5 carat emerald cut) on a piece of jewelry when we want to travel more and could invest that money into our businesses or other build able investments. A ring is just a ring and really doesn't serve any intrinsic value other than to show people you are off the market and give you something pretty to look at. I read how mined diamonds are a terrible investment and depreciate in value as soon as your walk out of the store and thought you know let me start with this for now and in the future if I choose to upgrade to something else then ok but for now this is a good place to start. Mined or Lab Created, regardless of your choice and where you go to get your ring from, I do recommend getting diamonds in a setting where prongs aren't needed especially for the smaller side stones.
I've had issues in the past with my real diamonds and lost them due to the prongs getting loose and was very upset. A family friend advised me when I get my diamond ring to get it placed into a setting rather then one set with prongs to avoid loss..
I kept his advice in mind for the side accent stones and as for the main stone the prongs are a bit stronger but even if it does end up loose and go missing the price makes it more affordable to replace. I will post another update in a few months after more wear and tear is done to see if anything has changed but so far I am very happy with my Agape Diamond ring.
