    I wasn't intending to buy any bling before my wedding ring this year but we went back to the antique shop to collect my e-ring from repair and saw a lovely necklace in the window. We actually saw it when we dropped the ring off but my fiancé asked about it while I was parking the car and he phoned me to ask if I wanted it. :love:
    They were just closing for lunch so she's put it aside and I'm going back for it next week. :mrgreen2:

    What a great surprise! It’s gorgeous and a great match. That seems like a true jewelry karma/meant to be piece. Congratulations!

    It's bigger than my new ring but the colour is a really good match. The necklace is 18ct gold whereas my ring is only 9ct but it was quite an inexpensive ring and I will probably be looking to upgrade it for a bigger amethyst and more diamonds. :lol-2:

    Forgot to add, asked if it was recent (we didn't think it looked very old) and the vendor said she would put it at 1960s.

    Very beautiful. A classic piece and definitely worth breaking a “bling ban” !

    This is my RHR, I was going to buy it for my 40th birthday in August but got it in the black friday sale instead & my fiancé decided to buy it. It was just from a high street shop and I was originally looking for a 3 stone ring with emerald cut amethyst but this came along and it was a fraction of the cost of the ones I was looking at.

    Got it! :mrgreen2: And I've seen something else as well! I think I might like a slightly longer chain for it.

    Thanks! I've got a darker purple lipstick but it was in my handbag and I was in my bedroom and couldn't be bothered to get it. :lol-2:
