As my e-ring is going to take a while before I get it, FI wanted me to get something in the meantime that wasn''t expensive, but looked pretty.

Well, I eventually decided on an eternity and this is what arrived in the post this morning...

White and yellow gold with milgrained edges on the white and diamond cutting on the yellow (The only bit I don''t totally like but when it''s on my hand you can''t really see the yellow gold at all, strange as it''s quite evident in the picture.)

There are 11 RB beadset diamonds - I haven''t got them under a loupe yet but they look pretty clean to me. I think they are 2pts each. And, 11 emerald cut blue sapphires. There are 2 overly dark ones, but the others are a very pretty colour.

Anyway, I paid a ridiculously tiny price for it (the antique jewellery section on ebay - they spelt sapphire with one p,so it didn''t show up on normal searches!)

What do you guys think?

Ooh very pretty. Will you end up using it as a wedding ring or RHR once you get your actual engagement ring?

My e-ring will be a platinum splitshank with channel-set RB''s holding a 1.42ct tsavorite cushion, so I don''t think it would be a good match as a weddingband. In fact I''m a bit stuck on the w-band as I have always like simple yellow gold bands for sentimental reasons, but not sure how they''d look with a plat e-ring, or the tsav, or if I can wear the two metals together ???

So - I think it will become a RHR

That is such a lovely ring! And good for you for being smart enough to search sapphire with one "p" LOL!

That''s beautiful!! I love blue sapphires. Isn''t eBay grand? I got my daughter a Buffalo Sabres jersey for Christmas when they were all sold out because the seller misspelled ''youth''.

It looks so pretty on your hand. Are you pleased with it?

A lot of photo editing programs automatically zoom out on photos so that the photo fits the editing window, which is why they look ok on your own monitor. To see what size your photo really is you might want to try something like "view actual pixels" or "view normal size".

Thanks Kismet - my nails look awful right now, but I''m over the moon with the ring!

The sapphires are so pretty and look so different depending on the light.

FI suggested I could cancel the one Wink is making for me


I''ve had a play around and found the size bit, but couldn''t edit the ones I''d posted.
