This one. I love art nouveau pieces but this will go over my budget. Original box too.

Bummer, I should have bought it. It sold for $300 and now it's on IG for almost $1,500.

@RRfromR , I'm just curious, what is the IG account where you found it?

Whoa. I don't know much about these pieces, so idk if the first seller underpriced or the second overpriced. In any case it's always a bummer to see that type of insane markup :(

No clue. It's the same item, unless it was done in a lot of batches, like we have generic bands now.

Here is another one @RRfromR. It's a little different, but lovely IMHO:

I was looking for a tri-color band and of course I couldn't resist peeking at the vintage rings. I think this piece is so sweet and so affordable. It's $275 or best offer. Not sure the quality of the diamonds but the large culet on the small oval is so pretty. Hope someone here buys it and post pics :) . https://www.ebay.com/itm/256031869979

I’ve been on a huge ruby kick lately.

If you love motion jewelry, this may be a find. I do think there is a typo here, can almost guarantee it’s supposed to say “ruby encrusted spinning orb” not “rusty” lol!

Pawn America has some awesome pieces!

Really neat old-looking cut cushion for a crazy low price:

Emerald and asscher 3 stone: https://www.pawnamerica.com/Product...Engagement_Ring_Platinum_Size_6_5_23221036291

Nice ritani setting (center stone isn't great, but could be replaced)

I'm seriously tempted to buy this just for the setting and replace w a better stone:

I want to make an offer on this but I keep seeing a dark spot at about 9:00 relative to the culet in most of the photos. Does anyone else? Seller doesn't accept returns.

I think it has a little bow tie and that is what you are seeing.

The PawnAmerica by me is great, clean, and polite people. I watched a .40 ct princess ring for a while, saw it was marked Helzburg and made an offer. I got it at a substantial discount, and they cleaned it at least twice when I bought it.
I think the ones in the Twin Cities get some really nice things.
lovedogs is still a hazard to my bank acc't.

How did you make an offer? On eBay?

Shoot, he sent me an offer for $253 but I bought a damned bracelet for $700, can't do both. I do like that ring.
