    I''m not sure if this best fits here or in the Colored Stones board, but since I''m showing you a ring, I''ll go ahead and post it here.

    I''ve been looking for a gemstone right hand ring for a while now, and saw this one in the window of a local antique store a couple of weeks ago. I went in to try it on and fell in love with it -- it just looks so perfect with my coloring, and I''m very partial to emerald cuts. Hubby and I went back this afternoon, and he got it for me as an early Christmas/late Birthday present!

    The stone is a 3.25 carat citrine, which is my birthstone (I think - Gypsy''s thread on the colored stones board now has me confused [​IMG]). It''s set in 14k yellow gold.

    Thanks, Ang! [​IMG] I did mention it in another thread. It''s what I was going to buy with the money from selling my wedding dress, but he was wonderful and bought it as a present. (I was getting a little worried that someone else might buy it, and since it''s an antique, it''s not like they had another one in the back.)


    Hanging out with my engagement ring (which needs to be polished -- it doesn''t look this scratched up when I''m not taking macro pictures, though):

    I think that the blue here is from the movie that hubby's watching...

    And some hand shots! I plan to wear it on my right hand, but it''s just easier to take photos with it on my left.

    Thank you, Vivian, Skippy, and DeeJay! ETA: And Catmom!!

    Vivian, I searched for "antique ring", but from what I looked at (which wasn't comprehensive) it seemed to be individual people's rings and a couple attempts for a "show me your antique ring" type of thread that died out after just a few pictures. You could start a "show me your antique ring" thread and hope that there's a better response now -- it would be great seeing all of them!

    Oh Blenheim- it''s fabulous! Citrines have a soft spot in my heart because they are the birthstone for 2 of my 3 kids [​IMG]

    Simply stunning!! [​IMG]

    Oh, I really, really like this! I''m a nut for antique-look jewelry - especially yellow gold. And I love the lusciously warm color of your citrine. Just beautiful!
