It's had quite the journey...

...and now it's ering #17 (?--I seem to have lost count!)!!!!

You've seen it before:
https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-new-sapphire.157712/

https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/im-back-with-photos.157748/

https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-sapphire-ring-is-done.159634/

And on Daniel M's site:
http://www.etsy.com/transaction/45101574

It is currently in the Daniel M U-prong seen above, but it's a size 8 and my ring size is a size 6, so eventually it will need to be sized, but for now I think I can hold it on with my wedding band and hold off on getting it sized just yet! I may reset it completely eventually, but I like it just as it is for right now!

Reminder:
2.99ct
Umba
Light blue/lavender
Sapphire
9mm

Two more for size perspective. I think a size 6 is about 16mm across and this sucker affords a LOT of real estate coverage! Nothing to complain about!

Wow, it's lovely and big! I can't believe Xiriah didn't keep it.

Just curious, why are they all e-rings and not RHRs?

I think that the stone was just meant to be yours, Freke :love: :cheeky: :love: :cheeky:
I immediately thought of you when I first saw it,
and it's the perfect size stone as well, just lovely !!!

Freke, it's absolutely STUNNING. Thank Xiriah a thousand times! It looks wonderful on your hand, too. I like the setting in that it lets the stone be the star. Oh, there's green drool on my keyboard.

I really have no good reason. Well...

A. I work in a law office, my hands are constantly in files, file cabinets, supply drawers, etc. So any ring is going to get caught on stuff. Wearing an ering knocks the chances of something happening to rings down to one.

B. I work with homeless people. I try to not look too affluent (at least in regards to a lot of jewelry). On an ordinary day I will wear: diamond studs (never take them off), a necklace/pendant, ering and my plain wedding band.

C. I really only wear my wedding band and one other ring--ordinarily a solitaire--aka erings.

D. I have a weird issue in that I think that solitaires are meant for the left hand. Not sure where it came from, but probably has bearings in the "Women of the world, raise your right hand!" campaign by DeBeers pushing multistone diamond rings as RHRs.

E. I only wear a select few rings as RHRs. Includes (but not limited to) halos, very large stones (24ct topaz), sentimental stones (mom's pink tourmaline, someday her 1.5ct princess diamond in a different setting) and rings that are a size 7+.

F. SOMETIMES I go wild and have been known to wear a diamond eternity with one of my erings and wear my plain wedding band as my RHR...This is mostly because I am a sentimental fool and can't bear the thought of losing it. If it's on my hand, I know where it is. But it looks kinda funny paired with some of my more vintage/blingy erings!

G. I feel weird wearing more than one ring! Well, I only really wear one ring per hand when I REALLY dress up. But really, to wear something on my right hand...I feel like it steals some of the show and I can't have THAT!

Yup. I have issues. And really, no good reasons. :cheeky:

Freke: It looks great on you and if I had to pick just 17 e-rings for you, this would be one of them! :mrgreen:

Actually, I'm really writing to say that I love for you the fact that you have 17 e-rings - you never need to justify them, but I loved reading all the logical reasons why it is you have the system you have.

I have to surprise the both of you sometimes! And really it was an impulse buy! How could I pass it up?!

I know! But it worries me because I just keep getting BIGGER. That means more expensive AND...well, BIGGER. GAH.

HAHAHA!!!! Why thank you!!!

And that's the first time I've really written and thought them all out. I am glad they make sense.

It looks great on you! :bigsmile: I'm glad you were able to take some photos despite the weather you mentioned. For anyone curious, I ended up selling it since I just hadn't been wearing it as much... I think it just felt too big to me (oh, the sacrilege!) :o Also, I'm like Freke, I prefer to wear solitaires on my left hand and DH recently bought me a 3-stone diamond ring, so I just ended up not wearing the sapphire as much. :???: (Sorry for the slight threadjack! Also to mention again it looks FABULOUS on you!)

What a petty stone! I love sapphires in lighter shades.I hope to have one someday too. BTW an eternity bands and diamond studs? I remember when you only had eyes for colored stones. I guess that was a long time ago :0)

Very pretty ring! I just ordered a pair of sapphires from the same Etsy vendor. Looks like I can look forward to some beautifully cut stones.

Lol! It's not quite half eternity, antique, bought secondhand. And the diamond studs are OMCs and probably a light yellow...Also secondhand. So I think I'm ok with diamonds so long as they are secondhand and old!

Plus I jazz up the studs with fun color stone dangles...
