Ha ha! Yep, juicy!
The big one is 10ct. I bought it kind of by accident. Well, unplanned anyway. Someone had commissioned it but because it’s platinum it took such a long time that by the time it was finished they had left the country and moved away. I went into the jewellers and he was kind of upset about it and told me the story. He thought it would take ages to sell it. I said I rather liked it and he offered me a really good price. So I impulse bought it on the spot. It’s 12.4 x 11.4mm.
I’m struggling with the 2.7ct. I went into the jewellers today and I wasn’t happy with the baguette halo they had drawn up for me. I want something I can wear at work so not too ostentatious. But I have an insatiable drive to halo things. And I love big bling (as you can tell!).
Am leaning towards this because it’s both yellow and white gold so I could wear it with either.
There are two rings at play. This has actually gone to Grace at Jewels by Grace and now has a old European cut diamond set in it. It should be coming up on her site in the next month or so after one of the emerald stones gets replaced (had a teeny tiny chip). The emerald ring they were talking about is my avatar - JB Starr emerald ring with trapezoid sides. It’s actually back with me from the auction house while I mull my next step - likely sending the emerald for a repolish touch up with Sako. I will feel more comfortable selling with the little imperfection removed from the side.
