I'm letting MK go to a new home. In the end, I'm a one ring kinda girl, and it makes me so sad that she's not being worn. She's too beautiful to be sitting inside a box, and she's been there since last September, when I started my MRB journey. Asking price is $39,750 for both the rings. Please direct your questions about pricing to Grace at Jewels by Grace. The rings should be on the site by this evening

I'm letting this setting go because it's been MK's home, and it is hard to get a Victor Canera setting without buying a stone from him. This ring is sized to a generous 4.5, but actually fits quite easily because the base is big and hollow.

I'm also selling the notched platinum millgrain band along with it, also made by Victor, also 4.5.

This is the link to my ring on Victor's website. The stone presented here is my actual stone.

Here are the threads that show the VC setting.
This video shows Victor making the ring.


This post shows the ring in a solitaire setting.

Here are some pics. I also love the progress pics Victor shared while making the setting. I saved the pic from when I first received her from OWD and I shoved the box in my purse and snuck it out for peeks on that first day. That stone floored me.

I do so much hope she will go to someone who loves her...

CRYING! This is one of the first rings I saw on PS that wowed me and inspired me to octagon set my original e-ring (I don’t think I have ever mentioned that to you before). Mine is a 1ct baby compared to yours of course. If I won the lottery I would swoop. Are you sure you want to sell???!

@Mreader, please don't ask me. LOL! I think it's the right thing for me. I'm fighting hoarding tendencies, and I do want to wear my pieces, not have them sitting in a safe. But if I think about what she meant to me, and @missy, it's hard. Not gonna lie. If someone loves her enough to take her, then I will know it was the right decision.

Say it isn’t so!! I’m sorry, I know I’m not helping. But you know what? I’m so happy that you now have the ring that you want to wear and brings you the most joy! Good luck with re-homing MK.

@LLJsmom I love this ring! Are you sure you don’t want the option to wear a soli one day and 3 stone another day? I know I’m not helping :lol:

That's what is hard, to keep it in case I feel like wearing a solitaire. I'm so used to a 3 stone that I don't reach for the solitaire. It's hard for me to keep anything that isn't used. I really am not a collector.

@LLJsmom I don't want to make a brand new thread for this, but I just wanted to ask: it's so popular on this forum to see people going from MRB to OEC/AVOEC. Is there a reason why you prefer the MRB?
Apologies if you've written about this before.

I have always liked MRBs and I started with an MRB 9 years ago when I started upgrading. I just didn't end up finding an MRB I loved so I gave up. I discovered OECs after I came on PS and my diamond repertoire expanded. I found MK and fell in love. So I had MK for about 4 years. I went back to MRBs because I wanted to figure out if I could love an MRB and went the super ideal route. Honestly, I'm just fickle and get bored of stuff. I wore my MRB studs for 4 years straight and now I'm sick of them, and have been wearing my VCA sweet pave studs for about 2 years, and I still love them. So I guess my honeymoon period lasts about 4 years. :lol: And, I want to wear/use what I own. It really bothers me that it's not being enjoyed and appreciated.

OMG. I just saw the video Grace posted. Am I certain I want to let this go? Well, if she does not sell, she can come home...

:cry:Are you sure you want to do this @LLJsmom ? I don't think I have ever seen a true antique OEC with a ASET like MK's. She's such a beauty!

I feel like finding an antique stone with the performance of an ACA is like one is million...

Yeah...I made the decision. It's always hard at first I'm sure. Yeah...I think so. We'll see if anyone is interested. If it's meant to sell, it will. At least people can view her. If someone feels like she might be "the one", that would make me very happy too. And at least she's not in a dark little box.

MK has a new home. I don't know who she's with. If it is a PSer, I hope she will please share... Please let me know how you feel about her.

Thank you to everyone who wished me a quick sale. You positive vibes definitely worked. Just fyi. Grace made the selling process so easy. If you are planning on consigning something, I would definitely consider her.

The band is still available, and I will create a separate listing for that later.

Phew. And an end to an era. I still love old cuts. If I get studs again, I think I am definitely doing OECs or super ideal antique cuts.

I can't believe she's gone...
