    Might be my last photo of Bubbalah as she is right now...

    From yesterday when my parents came over to visit.

    and while I am at it my grandma's engagement ring...less than a carat. Not the one I meant for my mom to bring lol but it's OK because I enjoyed seeing this ring too. This one was not the one I used to wear. I used to wear my great grandma's bezel OEC ring with IIRC an intricate basket design. Next time my mom is going to search and find it for me so I can take lots of photos. In the meantime here is my grandma's engagement ring from 1940. Not sure if it is a transitional diamond or late OEC? Have to add my parents are good sports letting me take photos while they sat around and waited lol. But we were talking diamonds and they both do love jewelry. Maybe not as much as me but they do appreciate bling. My mom offered me one of the bands from my grandma but they are so tiny and are eternity bands so I passed. My nieces could wear them when they get just a bit older so I didn't want to take that away from them because it would just sit unworn in my box being so small for me. I was tempted but I already have so many things I do not wear. OK onto the photos.

    Thank you for the extra information & pictures, lovely! I shall speak to my husband when he gets back at the weekend. It isn’t my wedding anniversary again until next Sept, but got to love a bit of forward planning!

    Tomorrow is our anniversary and I’m excited about our nice quiet dinner tomorrow in the midst of total chaos in our lives (left wing house remodel)! Tonight we are going to a trunk show and dinner hosted by one of our favorite Aspen jewelery shops...who knows...maybe we will pick up a new bauble!

    @kayla17 if you decide to part with it in the future some time, I'd love a chance to adopt it. <3

    Got a chance to hold my stone out of the setting. It’s not clean though. It was at the last minute when I even remembered to take a snap! Still neat to see. 96779E45-20E4-4B90-92DA-98D6376A336F.jpeg EE332BE3-9878-4652-A1CB-9EDB786FB9B3.jpeg

    Does anyone want to convert a gorgeous brooch to a bracelet? This would be stunning.

    This is new to me. I don’t have much info on this rose cut diamond brooch; the auction description was a bit lacking but the style looks Victorian.

    I know it sounds nuts, but I don’t have much! I would need to do a scratch test to determine metal content. The diamonds are pretty bright and some have knicks, but otherwise clarity is good. :oops:

    @clcat120 you need to post modeling shots of your VCA in the VCA thread! I am dying over your turquoise earrings. Those are vintage size right?

    Thank you. It is an unheated GIA certified Madagascar sapphire of about 3.8ct flanked with all E color round brilliance. It is definitely one of my favorite piece because the color is so vibrant. It is more vivid than Kashmir or Celyon. =)

    Here is one more. I bought it from Betteridge in Greenwich, CT. They have a great collection of jewelry. I recently acquired my asscher ring from Badis Jewelers (https://www.instagram.com/badis_jewelers/?hl=en). I think they have a few sapphire items for sale. Anthony from Badis cannot be nicer. =)

    Ive been thinking about this pin. I think it look lovely as a hair clip. The diamonds were so white and bright. Really high colored melee. It’s not in the cards for me now but I bet they would be willing to negotiate. It’s way over priced.
