I don't know how to send a marquise photo to the blog, so I've started this thread.
My Mom's engagement ring, now mine.

My recent purchase from James Allen, still in production as a stacking solitaire.

Thanks, Missy. There was a call for marquises on the side-bar of PS this morning where the blogger requested photos. I could not figure out how to send them to her aside from starting a thread : )

Gorgeous ring, Jimmianne!

Speaking of marquise cuts, does anyone have the tiffany Victoria earrings?

Hi, Jimmianne.

I had a link to add pictures with comments into an existing thread but the link broke. It's fixed now in the blog, I've also included the navigational menu (Forum >> Show Me The Bling! >> Show your Marquise Love!) if anyone wants to know where I'm linking.

Here is the link if you'd like to add to the existing thread, Show your Marquise Love!:

Thank you for sharing your mom's gorgeous marquise ring (congrats) and I can't wait to see the setting for that beautiful marquise diamond from JA!

Thanks, you guys.
My Step-Dad picked out the stone [loose at an estate jewelers] and had the ring made. He was such a generous, even-tempered & philosophical person that to me this ring is a talisman of his personality. It's touching how our inherited pieces become so much more than the diamonds : )
My "real" Dad passed away at 63. He also gave Mom very nice jewelry as well, but was a work-a-holic and very strict.
My Mom remarried to a kind & laid back man much older and he continues to be my inspiration for living a good life and being kind [I try].
He lived to the age of 102 and once said the secret of a long life is to not let anything bother you : )
A funny thing is that the engagement ring he gave Mom was just enough larger than her first one ... and the companion wedding band was MUCH larger. I think he was having his "top dog" moment with that set :lol:
Anyway, I have been the lucky recipient of the generosity of both men, and of my Mother who knew how much I loved diamonds.
I love sharing them here.

Beautiful! I enjoyed reading your background story on the ring. It's so true that inherited pieces become so much more than the diamonds. Thanks for sharing :wavey:

Jimmianne, your mom's ring is gorgeous. Such a pretty diamond. I loved reading the story about your mom, dad and step dad. That is amazing your step dad lived to 102. I like his philosophy. I can wait to see your pretty marquis. It looks like a fabulous diamond.
