This one's been knocking about on eBay for months now with no bids. I assume the ugly setting is hindering it. It's 1.74ct (2.24tcw) and the seller is asking $369. I was wondering what folks here think of it?

It's not in my budget at the moment but if anyone is interested I can give you the item number (is that allowed on this forum? I don't have any connection to the seller or anything.)

NO! Don 't post a link - Chrono said " Go for it" so it is o.k. ( cannot open the pic!)

Maybe you will be able to buy it soon - if post a link - byebye Chrysoberyl!! :)

Thanks! I don't mind if someone else buys it...I just don't want to break forum rules =)

I really like the color, but the window is too large for me.... I know it would drive me nuts eventually.

I don't see any windows either unless there are other pictures of it not posted here?

ETA
I found the eBay link and didn't see a window in any of the pictures either.

None of the ebay pics indicate a window. And assuming its as listed, its a great price. $369 for the stone is not bad and then you get some (presumably) decent diamonds and some gold thrown in for good measure. :))

Nice find, Pickiebee - you are clearly a fantastic bargain hunter!

Thank you! I've been thinking about posting a 'buyer's guide to eBay' but didn't know if anyone would find it useful, since people on this forum tend to go for higher end/bespoke kinds of things.

Not a huge one, but I see one in pictures 2 and 4. Or am I seeing things? :confused: Attached a screenshot for better viewing.

A tilt window; pretty normal to see this.

Yup, a tilt window. It actually looks decently cut and of good color. Hmmm... :think:

We may need to start its own thread for this find of Pickiebee's! I mean its a good deal - if as listed (a big if, I know).

My chrysoberyl that is already in a setting. Made in rose gold trying to bring out the green side of the stone.

Rose gold was the right choice!
