Hi everyone. I've been a lurker for literally years and finally decided to sign up! Just a brief introduction...I love antique jewelry and enjoy collecting antique diamond rings and watches. :love:

I saw this ring on the Jewels by Erica Grace website and thought to get everyone's opinion. I love the setting it's in, especially the filigree floral motif, but am concerned about the color of the stone (M/N) though the description says it faces up much whiter. Here's the link (you may need to cut and paste it into the browser)...

Thoughts about the stone's color and setting? How about the price given the color? Thank you! I really value everyone's wisdom! :appl:

I love that ring as well! All I can tell you (as I am a complete novice) is the price seems good to me. My e-ring is from JbEG and my suggestion is to contact the ladies and ask them for additional videos or better still, see if you can have it sent to an appraiser to view the color yourself. JbEG is a tremendous dealer and they will provide you as much detail and/or info you need to be informed about your purchase.

Best of luck to you!

Thanks RubyPrincess! Good to hear that the price seems fair. So you've had a good experience with JbEG? I have not contacted them yet regarding the ring....want to be more sure before I do it. =)

We had a wonderful experience with them. They are friendly, fair and very understanding about all aspects of jewelry purchase. My stone, setting and band are all from JbEG.

Just a word of caution: it's sorta dog eat dog here on PS--if you post a link to beautiful and reasonably priced stone it can be snatched out from under you. If you are even remotely serious drop an email of interest to JbEG - puts you under no obligation and gets you on the list of interested parties.

PS : the stone in my avatar is my JbEG stone.

I love that ring. I also have made a couple of purchases from JbEG and have been really pleased, I have been working with Grace and it's been so positive, I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again.
As for the setting, because it covers most of the side view of the diamond, I think that makes a big difference to making the stone look whiter than an m/n color.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts! Unfortunately, I'll be passing on this ring...hubby doesn't think it's a good time to spend money right now. :| I only hope it goes to a loving home, maybe to someone here on PS. Nice chatting with you all.
