    That's awesome, and it looks a lot larger than a quarter of a carat!

    Thanks! I think the size illusion is partly due to my girly wrists, and partly the bezel-setting .

    A purity ring, which at first felt a bit to feminine on my hand but which I later on have grown to love.
    It has a very comfortable inner side which makes it very pleasant to wear :)

    This is my Jesuit ring :)
    I'm very pleased with it and my only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner :p

    Does your spouse love Cartier as much as you do? Perhaps a matching or complementary bracelet would make a lovely birthday gift? Or another piece from Cartier. I mean, who doesn't love getting that little red box? It excites me way more than the little blue box (no disrespect meant to any Tiffany lover and I appreciate Tiffany too but Cartier is more my speed).

    Yes Cartier was the brand of our wedding bands so it has a sort of stronger emotional pull I suppose. Frankly we don’t have a lot of Cartier because for the same price we could get a non branded diamond or maybe a vintage watch or something. I think because it’s impractical and expensive it feels more like a “grand gesture”...
    Yes I’m thinking a love bracelet is in order, or maybe a tank watch?

    @Sfadman have you seen this thread? Lots of Cartier eye candy and perhaps it will help you decide. Of course I would suggest you choose what your spouse would be over the moon to receive and that might be slightly different than your preferences. I know my dh and I have different taste in jewelry so we never choose for each other and when we buy bling gifts there are no more surprises for that reason. But each couple varies and sometimes getting a surprise is really really nice.

    https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/post-your-cartier-jewels-rings-watches.197983/


    And I am also with you re wanting to get the most bang for our buck and not buying branded pieces generally. But that makes the few branded pieces one does own extra special. Good luck and please let us know what you decide!

    Hi. It was a long time ago when I bought it so details are sketchy. It’s an E, VVS1, over 2.5cts.

    And what do you mean about a shop where I sell things?

    Sorry, I thought for some reason you were a jewellery maker (probably because of all the lovely things you post). My bad!

    The bottom one is amazing, They are all beautiful... but the last one has got me all hot under the collar! It looks like a Baguette, which is so unusual as it's so large I tried to attain a Baguette shape over 0.75ts recently & really struggled - what is the shape specified on the cert? Hope you don't mind my asking =)

    Not at all.

    All the documents are in a safe but I think it’s along the lines of a carré cut.

    Ah ok, it's a beautiful stone was it bought from an estate sale & re-mounted or sourced separately? I enjoy seeing all your pieces - You seem to add a fabulous piece each week, makes great bling candy :bigsmile:

    Hi.

    It was sourced separately. It’s a stunning stone. I’m really quite lucky with all my jewellery. It’s my passion. I tend to buy stones first as that is what speaks to me. Then I design the piece around the jewel.

    I’ve just bought a beautiful ruby and posted about it (in the coloured gemstones forum) - that’s my next project.

    Glad you like!

    That ruby is a stunner. Do you buy your stones in person or online? I'm having such a hard time with online coloured stones....you just can't really see what you're getting. :/

    Hi.

    I actually have a gemstone dealer who knows what I like and sources it for me. I also do look online.

    I know what you mean about online shopping - sometimes when it arrives, it does not look like what you have bought. That has happened a few times to me!
