Beautiful! You can share it with me! You get 6 months to wear it then I get 6 months! I promise to keep it safe, clean, and above all feeling admired!

It really is a lovely ring...enjoy wearing her!

Oh honey! Have you ever come to the right place!!

What a GORGEOUS ring! Can you tell us all about her? She looks heirloom / antique - do you know anything about her provenance? And - did you buy her to celebrate anything in particular?

And - while I'm sure your family are lovely people - I can't comprehend not being interested in a raging beauty like this! Congratulations on your good taste in choosing her! Enjoy!

What ended up happening with your ring setting and your earrings? That could have been a fabulous project! I had all sorts of visions of diamond drop earrings!! :mrgreen:

Thank you all so much for your replies! It makes me happy to know others enjoy this also.
I don't know about the ring provenance, but it is definitely an antique. The spinel is 12 x 8 inches and there are fourteen .08 carat old mine/old European diamonds. The ring isn't marked, but it is 14K gold. It is definitely more beautiful in person than I ever imagined!

Hi Mrs-B
I ended up selling the ring setting- I hope it is being worn by someone!

The blue stone ought to visit a lab. It is too good & not quite 'too good to be true'.

@Paisley2628 It could be synthetic spinel or sapphire, possibly an early synthetic or a replacement. If natural, it is a prize - be it spinel (a rarity in such colour) or a fine sapphire. I can't quite guess the size.
