    I finally have something worth posting.

    After literally years of looking for a major RHR. I bought my dream. I originally thought I wanted a Fancy Yellow diamond, but for the size and color I wanted, it would cost at least $40-75K. Sapphire is also my birthstone (and favorite, too!)

    I had originally seen this ring last year at my local jeweler (Adeler, Great Falls, Virginia) during their annual sale that starts at the end of October but I did not have the $$$.

    This year I went in prior to the sale to check out whether there was anything I wanted. The sale is excellent--durintg the first days the markdown is 50%, plus if you have a coupon, the store pays the 5% sales tax.

    I saw this ring, but the jeweler said someone already had put in a credit card receipt on it, so when the sale started it would be one of the first things sold. So I brought home an emerald ring that is a larger sister to the sapphire. Hubby said no. It was twice the price of the sapphire and more fragile.

    I went to the sale, and was told that the sapphire didn''t sell. So I sat down with the ring on my hand and made a great decision to buy it!!!
    It was a very small fraction of what a fancy yellow ring would cost but with all of the impact.

    Also, this ring, along with the Emerald Big Sister were featured as part of the November/December feature spread for DC Modern Luxury magazine.

    I also brought the ring to be appraised by Martin Fuller a highly regarded Washington area gemologist and appraiser. He valued by ring at three times what I paid.

    Yippee!!!! But I have to wait for Chanukah to wear it. [​IMG]

    PS: If that honker is the "little sister" to the emerald ring, then I bet that emerald was a sight to see too!

    ETA: I got so excited when I saw the first pic, I didn't even think to wait to see if there were more coming....thanks!

    So beautiful. I really adore it- it is one of the few rings that I''ve seen that I would love to own with no alterations. Congrats!

    Widget,

    Yes, mine''s a square emerald cut. The emerald was incredible too. In fact, Jorge Adeler went INTO the mine in Columbia, chose the rough, supervised the cutting and finishing of the stone. The pear that was used in the mag layout necklace was from that trip, too. I will post more pics and specs, but I''ve got to go to work...

    Aiiyeeyeeyee.........OMG, loooooooooooove it! And what a great story about its purchase -- obviously, you were meant to have the ring. Don''t you just love it when stuff happens that way! I call these types of pieces "widget-worthy" because they are on a par with the outstanding taste and collection of our dear bling queen widget.

    More pics! Close ups so we can see alllll the details.

    crafftygirl...I have to keep coming back to this thread for a fix! I''m one of those who prefer colored stones over diamonds, and your''s is truly breathtaking. The color, the cut, the size....it looks like something straight out of Sothebys..[​IMG]

    Any chance of more pictures? I can''t get enough!!![​IMG]

    Widget and everyone,

    Thanks for all your compliments!!!!
    I feel like the cat that swallowed the canary. I also have to sneak peeks at it and try it on. I''m not sure that I can wait till 12/25 (the 1at night of Chanukah) to wear this. I think my Hubby will need to put it under lock and key.

    One more thing... about 2 years ago I bought my Hubby a 42" Plasma HD TV with Tivo, Satellite Dish with all the baseball/sports programming I could order. Every day, he always says how much he loves his flat screen TV.

    I told him this ring was my flat screen TV.
