    I was at Hoffman Diamonds looking at stones and I saw a ring sitting off to the side. He had just gotten it in but hadn’t even cleaned it or anything yet and it looked it.

    It belonged to the wife of a prominent local jeweler. It was his second wife and much beloved. He custom made it for her... he is since deceased and it came into Hoffman’s possession.

    When I saw the setting I knew it was handmade and when I heard he story I knew it was for me. Everyone in these circles knew of them and his adoration for her. I too am a second wife so it really hit me and it didn’t hurt that it’s so equisite. :love:

    The wedding band that has the milgrain goes back to the jeweler. I decided to go with the baguette band and then replicate the band I lost but in all diamonds and platinum. Attached is a photo of what I lost. 055A833B-8822-451E-A259-1E8489517FEF.jpeg

    I LOVE this!! I am becoming more and more crazy about squarish emerald cuts every time I see one, and this is simply breathtaking! What a great story, and now you don’t have to do the long a search for the perfect diamond, you have it right now! @Blingalingaling Take a look at this stunner! It definitely looks like Dorit’s dimensions- close to it:love:

    I LOVE IT. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. It is phenomenal. And wtf - who doesn't like trap cuts? Your coworker is cray cray.

    LOVE. And the story behind it, and the suitability for you, is perfection. WOW.

    We paid a little more than what I wanted but well worth it. I absolutely love it. Yes, it’s expensive but also fairly relative. I have a platinum Rolex that pairs beautifully with it; it was a wedding gift. ...but yes, it’s kinda nuts isn’t it?!

    There is not one thing I don’t love about your ring! It’s fabulous! And as far as the co-worker... I bet about 99% if people have no idea what diamond traps even are... outside of this community of course! That was a jealous comment for sure

    And I can’t help wonder if that’s a Portuguese Water Dog in your avatar @MrsKBP ?

    If this was not a bargain, I can see why it should not ever be a bargain. Great choice! =)2
