Hubby finally managed it, a total surprise. He even had it wrapped in an iPhone box which I thought was a new car charger that I need. :lol: But instead of a car charger I find this gorgeous pink baby. :o :love: Happy Mother's Day/early birthday to me!!!!!

It's a 7mm round pink sapphire, about 1.50cts [I don't have the paperwork yet] in a very unique halo setting which I love. Totally different from the usual halo settings. My photos just do NOT do this ring justice. I think there's about a carat of diamonds which would be F VS1s.

What a lovely and stunning surprise from your husband. He has made some great choices to create this beautiful ring. Love the detailing of the halo and the vibrant color of the center stone.

Thanks Acinom! The stone is a most gorgeous, vibrant pink that I just cannot get to show in pictures. My camera totally washes it out. My iPhone gets closer to the true color but it is still not quite there. I'm in love with the halo. It's so totally different from anything I have seen. As much as I am a halo junky especially for colored stones, I have to admit I was getting sort of bored with them. This brings my halo love back. :lol:

Thank you PintoBean. He usually does have good taste. He has learned over the many years what I like. Hasn't always been easy to get there though, lol.

Thank you so much ac117! I wish I could do a better job of getting the true color.

I think that is one of the things I love most about this ring tyty333. It's just so different for a halo.

Thanks so much! It's a little big and needs to be sized. I don't want to have to give it back, lol.
