I thought I would share my mother's day gift to me from me :naughty: This ring is currently at my jewelers getting a new Euroshank put on it so it doesn't spin, but I thought I'd share the photos I took when it first arrived last month.

9.1ct EC - unheated aquamarine in 18k wg. w/approx .5ct of VVS-VS diamonds.

When I first took it into my jeweler, his staff and he all took turns checking it out under their microscope. His comment when he was done was "that stone is scary nice" which made me feel pretty good (he's not always complimentary - believe me). The color of this aqua is just incredible.

It is a much larger ring that I usually wear, but I fell in love with it and decided to go for it anyway.
