I really love that setting. It just is sleek. I normally don't care for traditional solitaire settings that much, but this one is really lovely.

And the diamond isn't bad either! :kiss2: lovely ring and happy anniversary!

It went to HPD for the trade/upgrade...
I explain it a little in post #14.

Thank you very much @Austina and @Lykame!

I actually forgot to mention that after my first diamond eternity ring that I was married with I purchased a 1/4ct on eBay, hated it and returned it....
I later purchased a .50ct and wore that for a few months before I found the .88ct old European Cut diamond for our 10th anniversary! So lots of gradual upgrades over the course of 23 years!! :whistle:

Short version:
1ct eternity ring :love:
1/4ct solitaire :tongue:
1/2ct solitaire=)2
.88ct old European Cut solitaire with two small diamonds :love::love:
1.18ct Tiffany & Co. solitaire :(2
1.4ct Whiteflash solitaire :love::love:
1.6ct Whiteflash solitaire :love::love::love:
1.76ct CBI solitaire :kiss2::kiss2::love::love::love:

Not sure where my upgrade journey will take me in the future. I feel very lucky to have what I own now.

It’s been quite a journey to get to a 1.76 CBI!

When my husband and I got married in 1996 I dreamed of a 1ct diamond solitaire. We settled on a 1ct eternity ring in 14k white gold with a 1.8mm 14k yellow gold band on either side. I wore these rings for 10 years!

For our 10th anniversary I purchased a preloved .88ct old European Cut diamond in an antique 14k white gold setting. I’ve posted pictures of it on PriceScope before but I’ll attach one here in case anyone’s interested. It’s the first picture. I wore this ring for another 10 years!

For our 20th anniversary, right before I found PriceScope, I purchased a pre-loved 1.14ct GVS1 genuine Tiffany solitaire ring At last, a solitaire!! I thought it would be perfect...but alas it wasn’t. It didn’t wow me. The setting was a bit uncomfortable and the diamond, meh. Second picture....

To be continued....
Do you have a pictures of the antique ring setting? I love it!

@Steeldiamond I just realized that you were referring to the .88ct old European cut diamond ring....I sold that some time ago.
This is the only other picture I have of it. It’s the top ring. Sorry about that.
