to OP: The ring is nice; very simple with no over the top styling (sans halo, sans micropave). Some girls are into that, so if your future fiancee wants something simple, you did well. In terms of the diamond, it really depends on what your budget was. Hopefully you got a good deal. I wouldn't worry too much on size. If your gf has decently skinny fingers, a 1.5 carat rock will look fine. I'd say the balance of color and clarity are more important than anything else (which we can't tell from pictures). Also, being a generic design, you can find an imitation ring for super cheap (silver and CZ stones) and have your girl wear it without any worry of it being lost or stolen (during vacation, daily wearing, etc). I would also get it appraised (from a legit appraiser with proper credentials, not your local average jewelery store) and get insurance on it (I highly recommend Jewelers Mutual Insurance). Congrats and good luck.
