I finally have something to show off :)) . I have a big birthday coming up and really couldnt decide what I wanted.
Nothing really seemed to float my boat (I started that thread about feeling ambivalent about buying something).
My default was to get a 7 or 9 stone (10 to 12 pointers) but my fear was that it would not be very exciting for me because
it was too similar to my 5 stone.

In the mean time I had been keeping an eye on ebay and found a ring that I thought was pretty... a little bit different
but not too far out there. I wasn't too sure because I'm not really a channel set kind of girl but it seem to fit my requirements
of being casual enought that I could wear every day while also having good finger coverage. The vendor had a good rating and
a good return policy so I bought it. When I opened the box I was thrilled! When I tried it on I got that feeling that this ring
was meant for me...sort of a like an old friend found its way home.

The specs are...
.83 ctw (5-13 pointers, 8-2 pointers) H color, VS2
14k white gold, about 5mm wide on the top and 4mm wide on the bottom of the shank
size 6.5

Pictures...
(the ring is for my right hand but had to take pics on my left.)

Oh...and the channel set issue doesnt bother me because there is lots of bling and only a little bit of metal on the sides.

Yay! I'm so glad you found something you like - and something that's the perfect solution to what you wanted! It's not your typical eternity - it's an incredibly cool eternity. It reminds me a lot of some of the rings that Gumuchian does - I love it!

oh wow!!! I love it! I like how it is 'different' but still classic. It looks very blingy and substantial! And I like the very thin channel. Congratulations on the big 5-0!!!

Thank you ladies...you are all so sweet! :wavey: My big birthday is next month so I'm *trying* to enjoy my last few days of being
49! I used to think 50 was so old but I dont feel old at all! Your prospective really changes when you get closer to that
age :loopy: .

Schafer Jewelers was the vendor I got my ring from. Very nice and sent extra pictures when I requested them
(even though there were already 5 pics on the listing).

Thank you again for the well wishes and the sweet comments! Mwah, mwah!

Congratulations on your birthday!

Your lovely ring caught my eye. In case you aren't familiar with the design, I believe it is a "Quinteset" piece or one that is modeled after a Quinteset piece. I have one myself. You can see some of them here.

Enjoy your lovely ring in the best of health!

Thank you all for the B-day wishes! I do plan on being 50 and fabulous (it just takes a little more work :wink2: but I like
a good challenge :bigsmile: !)

AGSHF - thanks for the info! I had no idea where the ring/design came from. I'm off to go read up on it.
