UPDATED 2/17 WITH NEW PICS ON PAGE 3
_____________________________________
Okay, I know...I have been through many 'o changes. For those of you who loved my asscher and trap e-ring, I thank you. However, after a "GREAT" deal opportunity came, I decided it was time to change.

For those who don't know. I had a 1.92 Asscher GIA "I" VS1 with two side trap diamonds. I liked the ring, I never loved it. But the "I" color and "small" asscher look soon set in...once I did serious ring browsing a few weeks ago for fun.

THEN on of all places, EBAY a new seller (and owner of a small jewelry store in AZ) listed a 1.5 GIA & TIffany Co "E" color, VS1 Emerald Cut with two brilliant triangles of "E" color and VS1 clarity .44cttw. It came with the original papers and receipts (however, due to my super super luck, they never posted the scans of the documents, nor did they have decent photos of the ring)....

After waiting until it had 1 day left and no bids at 10,200 my husband-to-be made an offer: My current e-ring and $2,000

THEY TOOK THE DEAL!

I JUST GOT BACK FROM T & CO, it is AUTHENTIC, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! MORE PICS & SPECS TO COME...I AM ON MY WAY OUT THE DOOR!!!

It sounds like you worked quite a deal. Your other ring was lovely of course, but this is such a beautiful classic ring (and from Tiffany''s too) that you will hopefully enjoy it for years to come!!!

Wow, good for you for making an offer! How awesome that it''s authentic!!! I was a little worried at first reading your post, but then absolutely gleeful finding tiffany said it was authentic. What a deal!!! Good news is that if you change your mind again you shouldn''t have a hard time selling the ring either through signed pieces or pearlmans LOL, just kidding!

Seriously though, beautiful ring! We must see more pictures. I looooove the classic look!

OMG that is so beautiful. What a great find for you! I''m so glad you are happy with it.

Off topic...Every time I see your name in your av I think of the UCLA fight song. UC * * LA * * UCLA FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT. My BIL got his Masters and Phd from there so we attended a lot of football and basketball games with him.

Miranda-I love UCLA (and the fight song) but must admit, our basketball loss today did hurt the "high" I was on b/c of this T & Co Ring
!


THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS! I JUST LOVE MY RING SO MUCH...I FEEL I NEVER NEED ANOTHER PIECE OF JEWELRY...

But I am sure I can think of something soon

I am so glad you have found a ring that you love.

SInce you weren''t 100% happy with the asscher than I think it was the right choice to change to another stone, after all, you tried changing setttings, but it didn''t change it from an asscher, right?


This is a fabulous looking ring, and I like the length of it on your hand too.

I am sure your dear man will be glad for you to be totally satisfied with it and not have to look at changing again....lol


So now the question is, what wedding band??? hehehe

UCLABelle, not too long ago you posted about wanting a RB because you wanted all the sparkle, I know I chose an asscher because I liked the clean look of the emerald but wanted more sparkle. Now you seem to have gone in the opposite "sparkle direction". I was surprised, but the new ring is fabulous. Now that your old ring is gone, would you mind divulging how much that big beautiful asscher was?

I love your new ring. What a great find, just $2K for the upgrade??? AMAZING!!!

There''s just something special about owning a Tiffany ring, and even more special when you pay way less than the original. Yay!!!
