I started outwith a little soda-paste, lighteneda bit -- and then a lightening frenzyhit me and I couldn't stop!! (I wasworried that might happen ). Theantiquing effect is evenly worn off,but I still love it. I took similar(naff) pictures so you can compare.Here she is again :

Date: 6/2/2008 7:02:13 PMAuthor: SelkieHAHAHAHAHA, you're good! The title was different before I asked about it . It does sound like a sad story. Anyway, I'm keeping an eye on it, I've got a tsav that would fit perfectly! And if I don't get it, maybe your mom will! ETA: Yes, my pattern recognition skills have been finely honed by years of microscopy! I figured you'd get the joke.
Date: 6/2/2008 1:54:31 AMAuthor: KimikocatSince we're talking about VC, and how we "discovered" Van Craeynest, I will tell y'all my story. I no longer have my VC ering to share with you, but it was from the same wedding set as LIB's ruby/yellow gold ring. When I graduated from college, my bf at the time proposed to me with an old family stone (transitional cut, about 0.90 carats or 1.10 in size...it was the "small one" in the family, and came from a pair of earrings...the earrings were bartered in exchange for a baby...a long time ago, my ex's grandfather was a country doctor, and when the family couldn't pay in cash for a difficult birth, they paid with diamonds...sometimes I think this first bit of sadness paved the way for what came after). I'd been eyeing VC rings for a long time--I live near SF and several local stores carry VC designs. The boy went down and bought a beautiful carved/chased setting for the transitional cut stone. We were engaged for six months and then we went our separate ways. I, of course, returned the ring.I tell ya, that was a generous gesture! I wanted to lose the boy but keep the ring!Later, he told me that he'd replaced the diamond with a white pearl...and then gave the ring to his mother for Christmas....Hmmm...Well, no matter, some day I'll have another VC piece. I just hope that some day is soon!!!
