Hi All,
I’ve been a PS member for a long time but never posted. I’m not sure why...I am an O.G. on tPF and post a lot there.
So I’m just going to jump in with both feet.
I have a nice jewelry collection but not many colored stones.
I have always been terrified of emeralds because they are soft and I’m clumsy and I’ve heard so many horror stories so I was surprised to fall in love with an emerald!
Love works in mysterious ways.
Without further ado, here she is.
Vintage all original platinum ballerina style with center 4.3 carat GIA and AGL certified F1 minimal treatment.
If you are not a ballerina style fan no worries I get it! My style is “more is more” and dainty doesn’t work on me.
I just need to decide which hand to wear her on. My right hand seems the obvious choice but for some reason she gravitated to my left.
She needs resizing so I’m still deciding.
The photos don’t capture the true green of this stone!
She makes me feel just like Elizabeth Taylor so I’m naming her Liz.
Thank you for letting me share. E6301967-9B5B-4EE1-8C39-15E6965BCDFD.jpeg AE92A9C8-DD9A-4CEF-9586-84155672B3AC.jpeg

It's gorgeous and so so glamorous!!

I love the ballerina, the ballerina settings I don't like have a ton of metal showing but this one is mostly gorgeous diamonds!

Welcome to posting! You know this means you'll have to show us your collection though, right?
Pictures, pictures, and then maybe some videos followed by more pictures.:lol:
Rock on with your bad self.:love: Liz Taylor approves. Nothing wrong with more!
It's a fantabulous emerald city on the finger all the way.

Thank you all so much!
I appreciate your feedback.
I most definitely will post my other beauties.
The picture in my avatar is one of the other important colored gemstones I’ve recently purchased.
I am super lucky to have the most fantastic antique and vintage jeweler relatively close by....well, within a 45 minute drive.
Please message me. I am not affiliated with them in any way but think they are fantastic and I trust their judgment.

I've been watching this ring FOREVER! So glad you got it and came back to share with us emerald lovers. It must be an important gem since the vendor got the AGL somewhat recently, on top of the GIA's.

LUSH!

how do we "message" you?? i understand there is no private message function at this forum.

if you would be good enough to share with us, would really like to know who the vintage jeweler is... unless you are uncomfortable doing so

Wow wow wow! What a beauty!
As my screen name suggests I am a big sucker for emeralds and yours takes the cake!! :D :D :D

As for which hand to wear it on.. If you're right-handed I would suggest the left hand. Less chance of swinging it around and knocking it on things. I realised I use my right hand to rummage through my bag for things, so no soft rings will ever go on the right now.

Take care of Liz and enjoy. She is amazing!!

Wowee! Liz is a great name for her because she’s got glamour in spades.

May I ask what is tPF? If you cannot say because it would break some sort of rule for this forum, that’s totally cool.

Thanks so much for sharing. If you’ll excuse me now, I am going to go back and stare at your photos of Liz for a bit longer. :kiss2::kiss2::kiss2:

Thank you for letting me know there is no messaging (if there are any other rules I should know, please tell me).

I would love to introduce you all to them.
They are Badis Jewelers.
I have always loved jewelry but had limited knowledge.
They patiently showed me different antique and vintage pieces and ignited my passion for it.
I’ve learned so much just by stopping by and visiting their store.
Not only are they knowledgeable and have a magnificent inventory of antique jewelry, they will also custom anything you can think of.
They have an eBay store and a brick and mortar store.
I’ve purchased a lot of important pieces from them and I’m entirely happy.
If any of you ever need another set of eyeballs on one of their pieces that your flirting with I’m happy to have an excuse to go in to their store and give you additional info (again, I’m not affiliated, I just think they are super good people).
Oh and PS I will post my other pieces here as soon as I can!
Thank you all for being so kind....I really like it here :love:
