    So I’ll take some better pics and do proper measurements when I get home, but I had to post this new old deco (or nouveau) diamond ring I just found today at a pawn store. Hubby said we were going to a town about an hour away cuz they have a big pawn store and it’s xmas and we’ll have dinner. So. Didn’t think I’d find anything. But this one twinkled at me through the case and I was hooked. Once I louped her, I had to have her. My first OEC. The surrounding stones are single cuts. Loupe clean!!! Platinum.

    What a gorgeous find! :love: I am so happy that you rescued her from the pawn shop! The ring reminds me very much of my original engagement ring, it is beautiful!

    It looks like it fits you perfectly! It was meant to be!

    I love pawn shop finds! Our local one is small but they do 50% off the day after Christmas, I'm hoping to go there tomorrow to scope it out.

I know! So a thousand more pics. I can’t measure the height because of the setting but the main stone is 6.46x6.54mm. The 16 single cuts range from 1.6-2mm. Plus... I waited for them to take another five percent off (of the 10 they started at) then they added the lifetime sizing and melee warranty and... after I hemmed and hawed... they threw in a rose gold scatter ring I was also looking at. And my husband’s cordless screwdriver too!!

    Haha @nala I’m working my way up to the frequency of your hauls:lol: hubby is less amused :whistle:

    The thumb ring looks similar to the Benchmark (sold by Whiteflash and others). But it’s stamped AK. When I google makers marks with AK, they all come up AK TURKEY. This doesn’t say turkey, so I’m not sure the maker. It’s totally new or freshly polished with seven diamonds (4 smalller and 3 bigger). Super comfy dome top and comfort fit slides on like butter.

    Not legally “criminally low” but yah, for a platinum ring with an easy carat for the OEC center (vs minimum) and another third in the side stones ... I totally stole it!!

    Ninety-five percent of my “good” jewelry is from pawn shops. You just need a bit of knowledge to be dangerous:lol:

    Now for a couple of new pics that I took in the light box I got for Christmas.

    I’m going to have to live vicariously - our pawnshops here are never as good! It’s all little melee or big cloudy diamonds for thousands :roll2:

    Thanks! We live in the northern exurbs of Minneapolis and this beauty was found in St. Cloud.
    The good stuff goes quickly, as you can imagine. So going in frequently for recon missions is required.
    Yah, it definitely has a pretty flower pattern and delicious muffin top!
    Haha. Not selling this one!!
    Thanks!

    Wanna see some ASET pics?

    If course we want to see ASET pics!!!! Yay!!

    Fabulous find. Since you’re never selling it... want to tell us how much you paid? :mrgreen2:

    I have a friend that lives in St. Cloud... so I’ll keep in mind the pawn shops in case I ever visit!
