I've been blabbering too much on Hangout and I should at least give homage to a diamond (formerly mine!) I gave my AVC to my son to give to his fiancee, I love love love the stone.. but I would leave it to the sons anyway and I'm already 63 (not that I hope I'm going anywheres soon, but people my age are leaving the stage ;-) ) I flew down to Austin with the stone and to help him pick out a setting.... well many settings were too expensive, her Pinterest showed mostly Edwardian style rings, he only liked modern style settings.. soooo when he picked this infinity style setting for the stone I said to him "why don't you have it beaded and engraved" he said (of course) what is that but he had it done (300.00$) he gave her the ring in a romantic setting in Austin 3 weeks later, my tastes run to straight lines not necessarily this style but he loved it and she LOVED it! Wedding in March! love him to the moon and love her too, she's a keeper for DIL!

Wow, Tekate, what a sweet and kind gesture! Your DIL's ring is lovely and it is so great that your son will listen to your suggestions. What a treasure your DIL now has. It makes a ring so special when it has lovely sentiment behind it, like this one does. Here is to you living a long long life and having wonderful relationship with your new daughter! Congratulations to all of you!

luv2sparkle - thank you so much for your lovely words! I thought my husband would go bonkers when I said to him that I will give our son the AVC - I'd just bought it in 2013 and I loved it, but my son has enough debt and I thought I'm getting a little old anyway (a little ha!).. give it now because my son means more to me than a diamond. thank you again very much!

Kathley - thank you so much for your kind words! I appreciate it very much!!

ajane5524 - thank ajane!!! the ring is interesting.. I love it because they love it! I had it in a pendant! thank you again!

cravingdiamonds - thank you!!!! I have not seen it in real life yet.. planning to see them at the end of October and then I will get another pix(s).. thank you for wonderful words!!! I appreciate it very much!!!!

AnnaH - Hi AnnaH! thank you so much for your compliments on the ring.. I sincerely and very much appreciate it!! and thank you for asking what I am wearing now, I have a 1.61 I color VVS2 MRB stone that my husband gave me in 88.. it's rated an AGS 2.. not the greatest but it can do a bit of dazzling... so this is my stealth plan (gotta work on the hubster!).. (you can see my engagement ring in my avatar.. sorta!) so I plan to take that stone out of the ring, have it set in a semi-bezel white gold pendant.. then a few months ago I had bought a green tourmaline from Mochiko42! (she is wonderful) I plan to have the tourmaline put into my engagement ring! I should set the tourmaline in a yellow gold setting but my engagement ring setting is platinum and I would like to keep it! I have .50 MRB earrings and I have .50 princess cut diamond earrings and I am going to eventually get them made into a 4 stone trellis ring, IF it all can fit.. my ear lobes are old - I pierced my own ears at 13 - 50 years ago !!!! and they have seen their better days! my husband is fine with all this if we had the money!!! :) but I plan to do it over time.. right now we have said we will help our son with the wedding so any extra is going there. long story, sorry!!! thank you again for admiring my son's ring and thank you very much for asking about my plans!!!

Again pricescope the best!

Peace to all.

Awwww how sweet of you to do this for your son and future daughter in law. I'm sure she will love her new ring, it's really beautiful and so unique. I had a 41 point diamond set with 6 small rubies that I offered to my son when he got engaged. He wound up using it as a trade in as his fiancé wanted a princess cut and mine was round. But it helped reduce the cost of the new ring a bit.

Congratulations on your growing family.

Re: My AVC 1.33 K VS2 in an engagement ring PICTURE of ENGRA

How so wonderful and nice to say such wonderful things about me, I am humbled. I love my sons more than anything and anyone that has a child - fur kind, human kind, bird kind, etc. because love is love simple as that).. knows this feeling of caring. I appreciate this community more than I can really say, the hangout let's me hang it all out ;-) and I have learned sooooo much about my beloved diamonds and also I've learned to love colored stones!!!! so each and every one from management/owners/moderators - the geniuses who have the answers and the VENDORS... I cannot say enough about Good Old Gold, David, what an absolute gentleman, Stephanie, Jon did great by hiring her! David contacted me and sent such wonderful, kind words about me giving my stone to my son, if these two people were my children I would be so danged proud. Jon - just a vendor who cares, a man who loves diamonds and wants to share that love with us and I appreciated that very much.. Thank you GOG! thank you! My dream is to buy an AVR, and I will (after I get over money flying out the window to Texas for the wedding! that is)... I went to the video and did a screen print of the engraving and beading, I hope you can see it enough to get an idea of how it looks, as of yet, I've only seen it in photos. The setting was done at Benolds Jewelry Store in Austin, who I can recommend highly btw. thank you Pricescope community.

ETA: the ring is a size 5, it's platinum with no nickle as she is nickel allergic.. the engraving cost 300.00$ it's a mix of modern and edwardian now.. my future DIL loves it, my son love it, and I love them and it!
