I hope other PSers are going to this show. It's small but packs a lot of bling IMO and they have some gorgeous pieces. I went yesterday with my dh and my parents and it was fun. My parents enjoyed themselves so much they stayed long after we had left LOL. I took a few pics as best I could for PSers. Hope you enjoy!

Starting with the 20.75 emerald cut diamond ring. It is GORGEOUS. H color but OMG still looked white enough for me! Too bad (I think) it was around 500K. A little out of my price range. Oh well.

Next up a gorgeous Harry Winston pear that cost 25K in 1968 and is now a cool 185K. Oh why was I born too late. ;(
I think it is around 6 carats and an E color but not positive on that. So much bling it is hard to keep the details straight. I have a video of this ring but can't post it here sadly. It was hard to get good still pics of some of these gorgeous rings.

Next up a 10 carat OEC. JVS1. All the jewels I saw yesterday are GIA certified. I loved this setting. My parents thought the ring was too big for my hand. I don't know. I think it looks pretty good. :lol: Seriously this was too big for even me. 8) :cheeky:
Greg actually really liked this ring on me. He liked the OEC. His exact words "It's a nice stone". I have trained him well. :appl: :bigsmile:

There was an asscher ring there that was gorgeous and I loved the setting. A handsome setting if you will and I thought it would make a great RHR. It was only 38K! He said that was the show price so I guess some of the bling was at discount prices. It is a 5 carat asscher and I think it was LVS1. Nice ring. :love:

A couple of more of the HW pear. This was one of my faves. The photos don't do it justice.

There were some pretty earrings at the show and I almost took home this Victorian pair I am going to share here. It was very white and lovely presence but I wasn't sure. Greg was absolutely enaBLING me here and wanted to me buy it. Why did I resist??? :wall: Of course now I regret it but oh well. I just don't love tarnished silver over gold but I know that is typical of the Victorian era. I loved the buttercup settings.

I think I resisted on the above pair because I preferred the pair I am going to share next. My mom is modeling these OEC dangles. It was 3 times the price of the Victorian (1.45 carats btw forgot to say in previous post) dangles and I didn't think it was worth the cost so I passed on these. But I preferred these to the Victorian pair. Greg said I have similar earrings to these and he really loved the Victorian pair on me because I have nothing like those at all. He does make a lot of sense. Smart man but then again I already know that. :bigsmile:

OK OEC dangles on my mom's ears. 1.5 carats. Not the best pic of the earrings. They were prettier in person.

My mom tried on some beautiful black Australian opal earrings. She was very tempted to purchase these but in the end resisted. After all I have her black opal ring so I guess the earrings would have been sort of a letdown after her ring. But they were pretty!

Hope you enjoyed the abbreviated summary of the Lueur Spring Antique jewelry show in NYC. It was fun and an intimate setting. Not overwhelming at all. Would love to hear from anyone else who attended it. :wavey:

I do love this pair. You do have similar ones, but not exactly the same. It's super simple yet makes a big statement. I love it.

The rings are fabulous but I just couldn't imagine any of them fitting in to my lifestyle! Although, I guess if such funds were available my lifestyle might be very different :think:

The second pair of dangles, though? I could totally go for them, so pretty!

Hi Mahaud, the show runs through Tuesday and there are shows throughout the year. In NYC it's in March and October I believe. Then there's the Miami antique show in Miami in the Winter. Just google antique jewelry shows. When I'm on my computer later I will share links with you if you still need them.

Now here's a question. What do you think these cost? I am sure my mom heard wrong but maybe I'm wrong. Lol I'm far off if I'm wrong but then I know little about the cost of gems. But I swear she had to hear it wrong.

Here would have been mine if they cost half what they were asking. Just couldn't justify them in my mind for the cost and what I already own earring wise.
