Was it a live auction local to you or online? Just curious. What kind of info was presented/available in the auction listing. Thanks!@Tonks, @FlashyFlamingo, @caolsen, @Acinom, @caolsen, @GlitterInMyHair, @Sparkles88, @D&T, @Luvallgems, @GearGirly, @Alex T, @PreRaphaelite, @MissGotRocks, @meely, @yssie, @KristyDarling
Thanks one and all for taking the time to post your gracious comments. I hope I didn’t miss someone...
@yssie, I searched for the stones for maybe 6 -8 months? Hard to recall exactly as my search morphed over time. I initially thought I could match individual stones but I came to realize the folly of that endeavor...I ended up looking for pairs and found these at auction. As @KristyDarling said, searching for pairs is not for the faint of heart, and buying at auction takes it to a whole other level!! To add to the challenge this pair was collet set, so I couldn’t see the girdles, get a true weight or accurate size. But, they had the shape and faceting I was looking for, so I took a chance and bid.
