I have some open listings on pieces I'd love to send to new homes, figured I'd start a single thread instead of updating scattered listings ::)

All are listed for less than I originally paid and less than current retail, and I'm open to offers! All listed prices include shipping to US addresses, Canadian PSers please feel contact me :))

1. Jeff White yellow zircon RB, 3.69ct (8.86mm)
LT listing: http://loupetroop.com/listings/loose-stones/3-dot-69ct-8-dot-9mm-yellow-zircon-cut-by-jeff-white
Original PS listing: [URL='http://www.pricescope.com/forum/preloved-ps-jewels/original-wf-butterflies-mount-jeff-white-yellow-zircon-t219482.html']http://www.pricescope.com/forum/preloved-ps-jewels/original-wf-butterflies-mount-jeff-white-yellow-zircon-t219482.html[/URL]

Brand new, never set. Heat-only and colour is stable, completely eyeclean. More pictures in the LT listing! This stone is big, bright, and lively! The colour is... sunshine and smiles :sun: IMO this stone works beautifully with diamond sides - both stone varieties sizzle and spark!

$475 shipped.

Brand new, never set. No treatment. More pictures in the LT listing! This stone is eyeclean; it's a rich, velvety purply-pinky colour with big bright pink flashes in-person :))

Brand new, never set. No treatment. More pictures in the LT listing! This stone is a lovely, soft orangy peach colour. Schiller striations are visible on close inspection (pictured) which give it a glow - especially in sunlight.

4. Rose cut diamond pear with high bevel, 0.72ct
LT listing: http://loupetroop.com/listings/loose-stones/red-0-dot-72ct-rose-cut-pear-from-jbeg
Original PS listing: [URL='http://www.pricescope.com/forum/preloved-ps-jewels/fs-0-72ct-rose-cut-pear-from-jbeg-t219451.html']http://www.pricescope.com/forum/preloved-ps-jewels/fs-0-72ct-rose-cut-pear-from-jbeg-t219451.html[/URL]
Original PS SMTB: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/a-touch-of-rose-cut-charm.190252/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/a-touch-of-rose-cut-charm.190252/[/URL]

Originally purchased from Jewels by Erica Grace as K/L, VS2, with SBF. Completely eyeclean, with a high-beveled back that adds depth for more light return - this stone is one of the most fiery rose cuts I've ever seen :love: And she faces up huge, as rose cuts are known to do - 7.80 x 4.55 mm loose, 8.8 x 5.5mm outer bezel. Currently set in a 14k WG bezel by Daniel M. I had it attached to a bracelet as a charm and the jump ring was snipped to allow chain removal - this would need to be resoldered, a quick job for any jeweller.

$1075 shipped.

5. Pearl Paradise 8.5-9.0mm Freshadama studs with pink overtone, 14k YG posts/backs
LT listing: http://loupetroop.com/listings/earrings/pearl-paradise-8-dot-5-9mm-freshadama-studs-yg-posts-slash-backs

These are in essentially brand new condition - worn less than five times. I like smaller pearl earrings and larger pearl earrings; for me this is an in-the-middle size. I store my pearls in a well-humidified environment. I asked for a well-matched pair with pink overtone; these pearls are beautifully matched and the pink is soft but clear IRL.

$108 shipped.





6. Stuller Solstice 6prong mount, 14k two-tone
LT listing: http://loupetroop.com/listings/settings/stuller-solstice-6prong-mount-14k-two-tone-size-5

This setting is size 5 and held a 6.8mm stone. Total weight is 4.7g; shank is 2.65mm wide and 2.20mm deep/"high off the finger" (palm-side).

$200 shipped.

7. 0.32ctw half eternity with pink diamonds in RG
LT listing: http://loupetroop.com/listings/bands/0-dot-32ctw-half-eternity-with-pink-diamonds-in-rg

This is from a local shop where we used to live. It's a fun little stacker, looks very pretty IRL on the hand, with untreated pink diamonds ::)

Workmanship is decent and the stones are secure. The diamonds are a light pink - visibly more pink IRL than white stones or white metal, but they don't scream PINK. The 14k RG setting helps highlight the colour, and IMO this ring looks best paired with either other rose gold rings or white diamonds. The ring was sized (down) and the sizing cut is faintly visible on the underside of the ring - closeup photo in the LT listing (it doesn't stand out IRL, but I think it's important for disclosure :)) ) It's currently size 4.5 and sizable. Dimensions are 1.9mm wide and 1.6mm "deep"/"high" off the finger.

$385 shipped. More pics in the LT listing!

8. 22k band with hammered matte/lightly-brushed finish
LT listing: http://loupetroop.com/listings/bands/22k-band-with-hammered-matte-slash-lightly-brushed-finish

I bought this from italilambertini on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/italilambertini?ref=l2-shopheader-name) Dimensions are 2mm wide and 1.75mm "deep"/"high" off the finger. The profile has a flattened top (vs. rounded/high-domed), but with soft rounded (not sharp) edges, and the interior is rounded for a "comfort fit". IMO it looks fantastic next to squared-profile or low-domed plain-metal bands, channel bands, and pave shanks (because the line of melee creates a visually 'flatter' exterior).

Currently size 4.5 and sizable. More pics in the LT listing!

$585 shipped.

Hiya, Yssie! A housekeeping chore for you, though knowing you, you've already taken care of it! :lol: So here's my suggestion: notify the mods to close any other threads you've had open in Preloved in which you were selling these same items. Forgive me if you've already done it, its just that I always forget! :oops:

Some additions to this thread:


9. Original WF butterflies setting in unplated 18k WG
LT listing: http://loupetroop.com/listings/settings/original-wf-butterflies-mount-in-unplated-18k-wg
This is once again available. The sale fell through and it will be coming back to me next week; I will update this listing when it is ready to ship.

This mount is the original custom Butterflies that is now WF's stock design.

The unplated 18k WG is a beautiful creamy colour that I personally love, but it's easily rhodium-plated by any jeweller if you want a bright white finish ::) My stones were unset by Victor Canera and the mount is in very good condition (prongs will need to be re-tipped to set a new stone, as is the norm when re-using mounts). This setting is currently size 4.25 and sizable. Originally held an 8.9mm center and 4.9mm sides; the center basket could comfortably hold a stone between 8.75-9.05mm and optimal sidestone size is between 4.8mm-5.0mm.
My original PS thread: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/yssies-new-ring-is-here-2-7-three-stone-in-unplated-wg.144010/page-10']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/yssies-new-ring-is-here-2-7-three-stone-in-unplated-wg.144010/page-10[/URL]

For anyone looking for yellow, I had Jeff White cut a yellow zircon a few months ago that I am also listing separately that would fit perfectly :))
http://loupetroop.com/listings/loose-stones/3-dot-69ct-8-dot-9mm-yellow-zircon-cut-by-jeff-white

$675 shipped - retails new for $1353.

9. Victor Canera engraved band in unplated 18k WG
LT listing: http://loupetroop.com/listings/bands/victor-canera-engraved-band-in-18k-unplated-wg

Fantastic condition: the metal shows only fine surface scratching on the sides of the band; the milgrain and engraving are clear, shiny, and un-worn/un-faded.

Victor Canera's engraver does the absolute best engraving I have ever seen... And I've seen lots of engraving!! The design is beautiful, and it's flawlessly executed - truly, this piece is loupe-perfect. Details are clear, precise, and consistent around the band. The milgrain border is delicate and evenly applied, and it higlights the engraved area whilst preserving the rounded high-domed profile (IMO milgrained edges usually "square off" the top of the band). The unplated WG is a gorgeous cream that I personally feel nicely suits the vintage-y engraving, but it can be rhodium plated to bright white if desired!

The interior of the band is rounded for a "comfort fit" (the ring was handforged from round wire). The "Canera" stamp on the underside of the band is visible but smoothed over in the middle - it's been that way from the beginning and it didn't bother me since the name is still clear. No-one else has worked on this piece. It is 2.1mm wide and 1.7mm deep/"high" off the finger. Currently size 4.5. Could be minimally sized up by shaving the interior of the band or sized down by adding beads or a liner; I don't recommend sizing by cutting as that would break the engraving design which goes all the way around.

$1020 shipped - this is 25% off what I spent.

Vintage brooch with central diamond
LT listing: http://loupetroop.com/listings/other/vintage-brooch-with-central-diamond

I bought this a couple of years ago on eBay. I bought it because it was pretty... it was advertised as silver with rose gold and rose cut diamonds, but I didn't for a second believe that.

Well, I'm completely confident that the centerstone is a diamond! That's the only part I'm confident in, though. That central diamond + milgrained bezel is 3.75mm. The brooch is 1.5" long and 0.85" wide. I would believe that the upper is silver, there's no base metal odour anywhere on this piece. but I could be wrong. I'm guessing the pink under is either brass or some sort of gold filled plate, or possibly thin copper plate..? The 'chips' look like stone slices - they're clear and set sans foil backs. I suppose it's vaguely possible they're diamonds as sold to me but my assumption would be something else; they're much too small and thin for my home tester to inspire confidence, and at $115 it isn't worth paying someone to find out.

I mostly use it to secure scarves on handbags and hold wrap skirts tied, so... fine jewellery this brooch is not, but it makes a very pretty accessory ::)

$115 shipped - 30% off what I paid.
