    Not sure how she came up with 1700's but when she mentioned the small chips on the girdle I was thinking that certainly wasn't bad for a diamond that aged could have been worse!

    Thanks @PreRaphaelite for linking to IG!

    I'm going to throw up a video of my OEC tonight too, had her take a look at it and she graded it L color but it has medium blue fluor so that helps it a lot. That's the pawn shop find I had set into six prongs. She graded that one an SI2 with the chipping which I was thankful it wasn't an I1!

    Oh thanks so much!!! :mrgreen2: Don't know why I couldn't find it.

    @StephanieLynn oh my gosh it's really great, it looks way bigger than the appraiser says?! It looks very soft and gentle, I can totally see the appeal - I bet it's enthralling and pulls you in.

    Lovely ring, amazing find!!!

    @Lykame it really is a very soft look but also quite entertaining as the light bounces off of the facets, really an interesting cut.

    Whaaaa? really? It sure doesn't look that small.
    Yes! This is what I thought, too. So cool to have multiple eras represented in your jewelry! Makes you wonder about the first owner,
    where in the world it was mined, the diamond cutter....all that interesting stuff!

    I know right? I was surprised by the size too BUT rose cuts are spready, I thought this one was at least 1/2 carat because she looks the part! I would love to know the story, the appraiser did say that there was a good amount of patina between the prongs and the ring may have been stored for a while. She was definitely surprised to see a rosie come walking in @stracci2000!

    ETA: There is a pair of rose cut diamond earrings on LT: https://loupetroop.com/listings/earrings/reduced-genuine-rose-cut-diamond-studs-in-6-prong-setting

    Thank you so much @Lookinagain, it's always nice to find that someone kept the original setting, it's like original unpainted woodwork in a house :mrgreen2:

    Omg you guys will not believe what just happened today.

    We were out shopping today about an hour from home and grabbed lunch then headed home. About half an hour into the drive home I looked down at my hand and my rose cut was gone, GONE :cry2: I said it's gone and I'm probably never getting it back. Nobody could remember if I had it on at lunch. I didn't dare call the restaurant and I was really hoping I lost it there and not Goodwill!!!!

    We drive back to the restaurant and I am just praying it's there. I remembered that my son had spilled soup on his shirt and the ladies room was closed for cleaning so I had used the men's room to help him clean it off. I head straight for the bathrooms when we got there, the kids are looking in the grass outside. I get in there and take the top off the garbage and start going through the paper towels, about ten in I'm thinking I might have to go to the bottom and what could possibly be in there :sick: Then I look and there she is, I FOUND HER! So happy, so so happy and thankful and so she will not be a pinky ring after all as she is going to the jewelers tomorrow for a resize.

    The worst feeling is losing a piece of jewelry but one of the best has to be finding a piece you thought was gone forever.

    OMG--no way! You sure got lucky! So glad you found it!
    Pinky rings are weird. They don't feel right, and they don't fit right. They are more prone to damage because they are so exposed.
    I tried wearing pinky rings, and just gave up on them.
    I had one fly off my hand more than once. Like sailing through the air and onto the floor!
    When I was pregnant, I was wearing my e-ring on my pinky. We went out to dinner, and on the way home, I discovered it was gone. Found it under the car seat. No more pinky rings!

    No more pinky rings is right! Thank God you found your engagement ring. I took that ring right to the jeweler when we got home, resize and fix that prong on the end that is very thin, should have it back Monday!

    I really thought that was going to be the end, and what made it even worse is I knew I would probably not find another rosie in my travels but someone was watching out for me today!

    Oh my gosh I was on the edge of my seat! What a heart stopping experience! That sounds like a very unpleasant period of time but it sounds like you kept your head, phew! So glad you found it! Which finger are you upsizing it to?

    It really was @Lykame, luckily my husband kept his wits about him because I was so upset I could drive. I'm having it resized to my ring finger on my left hand as it is a 5 1/2 going to a 7 1/2 and I didn't want to size it anymore than necessary.
