Thought I would show my new-to-me lovely here! I bought this as a complete ring as I just fell absolutely in love with it as is. Barely even cared about the stats as it was love at first sight (how un-PS of me!) :)

Details:

Antique/vintage platinum setting
Centre: OMC/antique cushion est. 1.25ct, K/VVS2
Cluster/Halo: OMCs, est. 1.50tcw, H/VS1
Sidestones: OMCs, est. 0.18tcw
Total Est. 2.93tcw

Finger size 5, Ring is a 5.75 for knuckle/swelling, and so I can wear as a RHR too on my 5.5 finger.

I only have iphone pics right now as I just received it today and have not had time to take Pricescope worthy photos!

Fresh out of the box in poor office lighting:

Quite the finger coverage!

The profile :love:

And because the vendor's glamour shots show the detail much better than my photos...is it any wonder why I could not resist?:

Thanks missy, I am pretty enamoured with it too!

It's been a bit of a crazy couple years (or more?). I've been lurking off and on but I think I will hang out a little more :D

Ha, were you watching me? :shifty: :shifty: :shifty:

I got home a bit early, no sunlight but I will try and get some better pics anyhow!

I bought it from Gold Adore, she mostly does business through etsy. She first posted the ring quite a while ago on her Instagram but I talked myself out of it and thought for SURE it would be gone in no time..but then it showed up a couple more times and I stalked it on her etsy page, and I knew I would be so sad if it was sold to someone else so I went for it.


Thanks all for your lovely comments, and diamondseeker, the contrast is one of my favourite things about it too. It's subtle in most lighting but adds some interest for me!

Some quick new photos. I had no sun, and no flowers, so pretty barebones!

Sorry for the finger smudges and such. I could have cleaned it a bit better but I was being impatient... :nono:
