Jewel of the Week (JOTW) - Gorgeous Jewelry Shared by PS Members


Men don’t get the glory on blings as women do but this week’s featured jewel shows a set of men’s bling - wedding rings. I’m glad that Rod reposted the wedding rings for him and his partner, they have been together for 35 years and they were finally able to tie-the-knot last year. What a great accomplishment/milestone! Rod’s ring contains diamonds from his father’s, which makes Rod happy because it symbolizes the amazing love for his husband and father. Both platinum rings are custom made.

Jewel of the Week (JOTW) - Gorgeous Jewelry Shared by PS Members


When I was looking for this week’s featured jewel, I found it under “The 5+ carat ring thread”; of course I would have to go through all 4 pages of the thread, right? ;-) I couldn’t miss Icelover's 8+ carat Old European Cut (OEC) upgrade. This ginormously opulent ring, which covers her 4.5 finger, has an 8.52 ct OEC center stone of H color and VS1 clarity in white gold. Look at the facets!

Billionaire Rupert Murdoch recently became engaged to Jerry Hall and he proposed with a massive marquise cut engagement ring. Undoubtedly, that ring propelled the cut back into the spotlight and increased our views here at PriceScope. Yet even though it isn't one of the most popular fancy cuts on the market, we think our readers here should take another look at the magnificent marquise. We promise you won't be disappointed.
