Hi!
35.gif

I've Been a lurker on here for many months now, I thought it was time to post
21.gif

I love this site
30.gif
---its sooo addicting!!
This is my first Bling---- my mom gave me 2 diamond rings that were used to belong to my grandmother..and before her... my great grandmother.
The smaller of the 2 diamonds--- I believe it is a .50CT OMC? (still getting used to the codes ) I had custom made into a neclace at Barmakians they added .13CT of diamonds around the bigger stone. Overall i am happy with the piece......But i wish they had shown me a few diff options or something.... they didn't show me anything---i went around and described what i wanted it to look like comparing it to other pieces that they had.

But i still love it

The second diamond my mother gave me is a .75CT OMC or OEC? THAT one will be in my engagement ring!!!! ..which should be coming this month!!!! (with the proposal..of course

oooh- I love your necklace- and I should! I am having a 1ct OEC set in a very similar necklace for my Christmas gift! I am going to have a bale coming off the top though w/ stones in the bale as well. I think that setting compliments the antique stone fabulously and halos always make stone look so much bigger! Which is great w/ OECs since many are so deep!

Welcome, blinkydoll!

I LOVE your necklace....particularly the sort of ''scallopped'' bezel. A great way to showcase a smaller stone... Very nice!

Thanks for coming out of lurkdom to post that lovely and special pendant! My jeweler is working on a somewhat similar pendant design for the diamond out of my old wedding ring. Look forward to seeing your ring too.

Hi Everyone!
Thanks for your nice compliments! :)
i will try to get some neck shots up here soon. I may have made a mistake-- i think the center stone is .50 Ct. i will take a pic near a penny or something so as to tell a better size comparison?

P.S
I think this SAT is the BIG DAY!!!!!!!!
