Thanks everyone!!

Honestly, you should see me, beaming like a proud parent over all the wonderful comments!



LoveDeco
, it really is totally wearable! I inherited a somewhat "fancy" OMC from my mom, and while I love it to pieces, it''s not something I feel I can throw on just any old day. But I do with this one.


Linda, thanks. I wish I knew when my grandpa gave her this. I''d asked my mom, but I don''t know that I could believe her, if she could even give me a date.


Fly Girl, thank you!! And no, I''ve certainly never seen a ring like this. It shouldn''t be that hard to do, ya know?? And I promise to enjoy it!

tiffany, me too, thanks!

Miranda, lol @ obnoxious obsessions!!
And I''d be happy to take some pics for you with my WB, what angles would you like?


Patty! So good to see you miss. Thanks for logging in just to tell me that!


Holly, thanks you!

elle, my goodness, what a lovely post. Thank you!! And yes, I AM lucky.


ilovethis, funny, when I originally posted about recutting it, I wanted a halo. And it would be pretty, but I loves it just the way it is.


disney, merc, thank you! merc, is this the stone you thought I was talking about several day ago?


Lauren, wowie right back, thank you!!


Catmom and k, thanks you guys! I agree k, it was the right thing to do. I am so over the moon.


tuckins, breathe!!
And thank you.


I really wish you all knew just how much your thoughts mean.

Yup. Like I would forget an square emerald recut. As if. It's well worth the wait! I did not know that Leon was involved, double yum!

ETA: The prongs are perfect. Just perfect!

Ellen,

Could you show the "before" picture to a jeweler? Maybe he would have an idea about the actual date of your ring.

Yay!! Here I am checkin'' in on that gorgeous jewel (again!) and boy what a reward! More Pics!!!

I''m sorry to have to tell you Ellen, but if we ever do meet IRL I might be tempted to knock you

down, rip that beauty from your finger and run, run, run! (No, wait I forgot about the OTHER beauty....)


(Hubs says not to skip out without that one!
) Doesn''t he have good taste in sparklies?!


Seriously, it is truly stunning and I love the sentiment of it too. What a wonderful way to remember your
grandmother.

Love this one.
Me too.


There is something so mesmerizing about your ring Ellen. It''s just so beautiful I had to tell you again.

Two of my boys are March babies and I have always wanted something like this, maybe someday...*sigh*... But until then I will just have to admire yours!

Oh Ellen! I promise I''m not dangerous!
I''m just teasing you. However, if ever we do meet I absolutely cannot
promise not to drool like an idiot (albeit discreetly) over your beautiful rings.

Any angles. I''m mostly interested to see how it sits with a band. Profile would probably do the trick, and straight on, and, and, and, and....OK, well, maybe I just want to see more pics!

My band is 3.5mm wide. It really doesn''t sit badly with it at all. There is the slightest gap, but in real life, not very noticeable. Widthwise I think it should be slimmer, but at least you get the picture.
And the Leon would probably look better than it does if it wasn''t 1 1/4 sizes bigger. Thank God I''m right handed.


Ok, in no particular order.

chickpea, thank you! I think everyone should have one of these.


po, thanks. It''s funny, someone on here told me before I cut it that I would lose some color, but it sure doesn''t seem to be lacking to me. In fact, I honestly think it looks better.
