    I have been hanging onto this gem for a while. It has been years in the making and it is finally done! I am over the moon joyful with the results. The stone is old stock, 1.37 ct 8.4 x 5.5 mm. It is set in 14k white gold with diamonds. It is more red than photographs show and looks amazing in all lighting conditions. I am blown away and grateful! It has been 16 years and is also my new e ring. 20190624_131810_HDR.jpg

    Okay, it HAS been a while. . Everything about it was familiar except the colour, it does photograph more pink!
    Wear it in good health. :)

    Thanks Makingthegrade! It has been a decade for me as well! This one really blows me away. It seems to even glow and sparkle in the dark! Definitely an heirloom piece - I have three daughters and there is only one like this!

    Thank you LisaRN and Stonehunter! I did not look at the stone this way on it's own. Now I can't stop looking at it and I feel so happy and incredulous when I see it!
