I haven''t been on PS in about 5 years.. I became obsessed with this site and diamonds while hoping to get engaged in a previous relationship.. In the life works in mysterious ways column, that awful relationship ended and I later met my incredible husband.. who had a family ring to give me. The ring is so similar to what I would have asked for, if i''d had the chance, it''s scary! I missed out on getting to do all the research on Pricescope though! So, I recently had a question to post in Rocky Talky and thought it might be fun to come back and get my turn at "Show Me the Ring!" Hope you''ll indulge me..

So here is my Old Mine Cut, J-K, platinum set, e-ring.. center stone is 1.9, tiny little side stones bring it to just over 2 total. I adore it.. the square setting makes it interesting, and I think the cut must be pretty decent since it faces up very white in most light settings. It was my husband''s great grandmother''s ring and was sized to fit me- otherwise hasnt'' been changed and we estimate it''s about 100 years old or more.

I hope this file isn''t too big, i tried to make it smaller..

I can see why you adore this ring, as it is fantastic! How wonderful that you were able to use a family ring, which just adds to its meaning.

Thanks everyone! Suzy, you are so right! I guess one day I will have to come up with a project in order to "learn" more about diamonds! Let me try adding some more pics- forgot I had these, and they include my band, which is white gold, no idea on carat weight or anything about the diamonds.. I think it''s a good match to the e-ring, even with the different metals and i love the look of it. One day I''ll go for a platinum full eternity band, but in the meantime, i am happy with this set!

The one I posted above was from the night we got engaged (Jan. 08).

Ack! That WAS just the side view.. but i made the pic too small and can''t figure out how to make it bigger. Why am I having so much trouble with the pics tonight? oh well.. here is the band alone, straight on. Thanks everyone for your lovely comments- it is so nice to hear! You don''t know how I waited for my ''turn'' here :) Here''s the last pic that I have.. I''ll do a photo shoot once I get a better camera!!

That is gorgeous. You could almost say they don''t make em like they used to (except with all the antique repro vendors, they pretty much do!). Yours is very special though!

Beautiful ring! I am soooo happy to see someone who has not succumb to re-setting/upgrading/embellishing an existing ring, especially one with such history. It''s beautiful!


Congratulations

antiques, I love the history. I can''t believe how white it seems to face up for that color, yet throw off so much beautiful color at the same time...does that even make sense? Can we get a side and profile view of the ering? Please?????

I love fishtail settings. I wonder if they''ll ever make a big comeback? I have a .50 OEC in a platinum fishtail.

Love your diamond
