I spent hours walking around and had a blast trying things on, fawning over countless gorgeous pieces and yes, I may have come home with something that I'm very excited about!

Without further ado, please enjoy all the pics I took. I'll do my best to post specs I remember and feel free to ask me any questions!

First batch are pieces from Grace....it was my first time meeting her and I absolutely loved her! So sweet and encouraged me to try on anything and everything!!

Pic 2-STUNNING 3.65 Edwardian oec ring
Pic 3-1.95 Art Deco L SI1

Pic 1,2,3...pics of the ring I really loved and almost pulled the trigger on but it was already over budget and I felt the dealer was just asking too much and wasn't willing to negotiate that much :((

Oec GIA certified center, 1.84 K VS2

This is taking way longer than expected!!! I'm only 50% done and it's taken quite a while so I will have to finish the show tomorrow!!!

WOW! Great photos! I was wondering - did Grace happen to tell you the specs of her three stones? I'm after their individual ct weightso I can work out the proportions.

I love that ruby and diamond number!

OMG OMG OMG! Thank you for sharing these awesome JAWS pics! As you know we were there for over 4 hours Friday and I can see why you had to go back each day LOL. So much to see and so little time...thank you for taking these spectacular photos for us! I am sorely tempted to go back today :naughty: but feel my friend (her first time visiting NYC) should see some other NYC sights besides bling...
Well we will see what she says. In the meantime THANK YOU for sharing these photos and congratulations on your gorgeous bling purchase!!!!! :love: :love: :love: :appl: :wavey:

ETA Just drooling over your pics again and isn't that a 4.93 OEC (not a 3.93) that Stella is next to? I think it might be because that is the ring I fell in love with on Friday...correct me if I am wrong though please. In any case she is a stunner in every way. :love:

Your photos are so much better than any of mine. I am just going to need you to come over and take some photos of my bling for PS. Pretty please? :halo:
:cheeky:

Thank you so much for that link! I am toying (and perhaps always will) with the idea of turning my 3.61 into a 3 stone. I have a 1.38ct stone hanging around, and I've thought often about getting a matching one and going all the way with it. The total ctw would be around 6.4ctw, but I'm just not sure I can squeeze it all onto my finger! But - if that photo is how it would look if I did it - it would be AWESOME!!

Thanks for the info and the link, ac117 - your trip looks like it was amazing!

Ahh yes, you are right, sorry!! That oec IS 4.93 NOT 3.93, my big mistake!!! Grace mentioned you were coveting her! Might she go home with you today??? :naughty: :lol:

Believe it or not, all of these pics were just taken with my iPhone but I tried to capture the loveliness of each piece! Regardless, it would of course be my pleasure to take some snaps of Bea and your other treasures!!! :bigsmile:

That sounds like it would be AMAZING!!! I'm pretty sure from reading your threads that we're roughly the same finger size so her ring might give you a pretty good idea of what you would be seeing (my ering is a 3.24 on a size 7 finger, although it's a tiny bit loose so my wedding band is a 6.75). It's a BIG look but my oh my is it goooooorgeous!!! :lickout:
