I was chatting with Belle and John from WF and they both wanted to see this ring. I was in Las Vegas a few years ago and was at the Rio. Hubby and I were walking through the casino when a sign caught my eye. It read something about winning jewelry so of course I made a beeline right over there! I was expecting the stuff to be junk, but the jewelry was actually very nice...especially coming from a slot machine! It was a .05 cent slot machine so I threw a $5 bill in it and hit "max spin". There were about 5 lines that had to match...what are the odds? It stopped and I just stood there. Hubby said, "you won!" Immediately some casino folks came over and I got to pick what piece I wanted. I had been dying for a 3 stone, so I picked that...all for $5!! I don''t have any specs on it but they stones are very white, clean and sparkly!I cannot find a single inclusion in any of the stones even under my loop. The only info about the ring is: .60cts, G-H color and SI clarity. Every time I''m back in Vegas I look for the machine, but it''s gone. I thought that PS''rs might enjoy this story so I wanted to share. Here are pics. It is on my size 4.25 finger. Enjoy!
