As many of you know my DH gifted me with a bigger RB a few months ago. I decided to return it within the time allowed. Although it was a 2 ct. it seemed small on my hand since my halo was much bigger. It was a good thing we returned it because it was the start of things breaking in our home. Our furnace died and needed replaced then the water heater went a week later. Then DH had a hernia surgery so needless to say it was a blessing I did not keep it. Anyway, I happened to be cruising GOG site last Friday and spotted a 1.57 SI1 for a price that made my jaw drop. I emailed DH and we put it on hold. Yesterday I got an email from Darren at GOG telling me Jon looked at the stone and he said it was an SI2 instead. I called to talk to Darren and he put me through to Jon. Jon was very informative about the stone and honest. It had a small nick on a facet that could not be seen with the eye. I almost decided to not get it but Jon said it could be polished out. I was so happy. He told me the price online was a mistake and he almost called to tell me who could not sell it for that price but decided to let it go to move inventory. I know I got an excellent deal and I can't wait to get it this week. I love pears, I had one during my last marriage and am thankful I am getting this one.

That looks like a beautiful stone! :love: :appl: (I think you may need to crop GOG name off the picture and repost, though. I am pretty sure vendor names aren't allowed on photos.)

I am having it put in the cheapest white gold setting they had because I have no idea how I want to set it. It is going to be a vprong for the tip and they are making the other prongs tiny and delicate.

HALO HALO HALO!


I love pear halos. I know you hav one already, but a delicate one would be a different look.

OR else I love pears in a three stone, with pear sides or even trilliants :love:

I really thought when I put my RB in the halo it would be my forever ring but after wearing it for over a year a halo is not for me. I love the beauty of a solitaire. I am going to make sure I take plenty of time to decide on my forever setting. I have decided to sell my halo, I can't see myself wearing two rings that look like erings. Where I live my pear is already going to be more bling than what most people wear.

I am going to sell the whole thing. I know I am going to take a hit but it will make a nice ring for someone.

You will likely have a better time selling the stone and ring separately. You will probably ge ta better return on the stone than the setting, so two different sales would likely work better.

My halo is off to California to be sold with the help of two wonderful ladies well known around here. :))
