I have been an admirer of OECs for sometime, however I could not justify getting one in diamond.
When @CHRISTY-DANIELLE decided to sale this OEC blue Zircon, I jumped to the chance as I like Zircons, especially blue ones.

It arrived today and is gorgeous. :kiss2: :kiss2::kiss2:

So happy, and thanks @CHRISTY-DANIELLE for selling and sending it to me!

I shall post ring designs I have in mind for this stone from the laptop later.

Decided on the Ivory and Rose setting, and the brief has been sent to the bench, to be made after my JW Rubellite Tourmaline ring.

Hopefully, both rings will be ready before the year is out!

Still have one more installment to go for the diamond tennis bracelet, then 2 for the Rubellite, and I am hoping I can do this one with just one payment.

In theory, I can probably pay all of these in one go, however, I want to be good and stick to my so-called monthly bling budget that I appear to be breaking on regular basis!

Instead of looking at it as a monthly bling budget why not make it a yearly bling budget? That way perhaps it will all work out in the end. :)

And if nothing else you’ll have beautiful bling to enjoy.

That had been exceeded for 2020 back in February, blew the lot and more with JW alone!!! :roll2: :lol-2:

As I said, I am "trying" to be good, and am failing big time!

I have to hide my purchases from my mum when I go to Vancouver next year, otherwise I would hear no end of it!

I presume it was posted from the US to the UK. Could you tell me how much shipping was for the zircon? Was it FedEx Tracked? Because I'm getting widely different quotes from other PSers when I want to buy preloved stuff. One was almost $150, one was $50.

I agree about not discussing bling purchases with mothers. In order to keep a peaceful and calm relationship things of that matter are often best left quiet if you kwim and I know you do. LOL we are always their little girls I guess and they always feel they know best.

As for being good you are good with bling and that rocks in more ways than one. Enjoy.

Don't know, sorry, as I paid for the stone with P&P included. It was shipped and tracked via USPS, and I paid for custom and duty charges in UK before it was released for delivery to me.

Indeed, as she would have a fit if she finds out (a) I have re-set her MRB into a bangle, and (b) I am getting a diamond tennis bracelet.

They will definitely be hidden from her, along with other blings!

There are many things she does not know about me besides my weakness with bling! What she does not know, she does not have to worry, that's my defence! :lol-2:

Thanks, it is a lovely stone, and I am pleased it is now mine, my 3rd blue Zircon, to add to the heart and oval that I already have.

I'm so happy it arrived safely and that you like it! I am a huge blue zircon and OEC cut fan myself, and I think the two go beautifully together! Michelle (MVM) just cuts beautiful stones! I can't wait to see this set!

I love OECs, and was fortunate to see the one that belonged to @mochiko42 when we met up in HK in 2015.

I may have to bug JW for an OEC or two in future!

I asked him if any of the Chrysoberyls he picked up from Tucson this year would be suitable for an OEC and he said no. :((
