    As most of you know, I have been trying to find the neon electric blue color from @msop04 's Peter toracca synthetic spinel forever. And it's proven to be almost impossible, with the exception of Gene, but he doesn't take custom orders anymore.

    Imagine my shock when I saw these pics on LT.

    I emailed the seller as fast as humanly possible, and she confirmed that it's the same ring for sale! Not only is it the exact ring I've been using as inspiration, but the 2nd owner and I share the same size finger, so I don't have to size it up (since msop has delicate fingers that I think are under size 5 and mine are a 7).

    Needless to say I bought it, and can't wait to get it!!!
    The seller also sent me original videos that I'm watching on loop until I get the ring :)





    Just wanted to share my good jewelry luck with you all!

    Ps. @msop04 I can definitely remove these if you want....I didn't see any potentially identifying info in there but just let me know!

    Oh good for you! I read the posts about you trying to find that HG color so I'm so happy for you that the seller decided to let it go.

    I have to say the video does wonders for this ring, in the pictures it looks very sleepy but totally opposite in the videos.

    I saw that and thought of you, but figured “nah - it can’t be”.
    I had no clue it was THE ring!
    I’m excited for (with) you!

    Haha I saw it and said out loud "no way", figuring it was just a similar style, but emailed just in case. SO happy I did!

    Congrats! I emailed when I saw this on LT, but hesitated because the spinel was synthetic, and I was trying to be good with my spending since vowing almost 2 months ago to wait until next year for another new gemstone purchase. I'm very, very glad you got this one. It IS fate, and you are meant to have this stone! :geek2:

    Dammit, USPS! It says now that it's "arriving late". So unlikely it will actually come today :cry2:

    Congrats! What an awesome score! I mean, what are the odds that the ring you were using for inspiration would eventually find its way to you? Gosh, this is just the greatest thing I’ve read today.

    Also, I’m really glad I hesitated, when I saw this on LT, because it was clearly meant to be yours. :kiss2:

    From GA to California. It's FINALLY arrived at the local post office, supposedly arriving today by 8pm. But until I see "out for delivery" I'm not being overly optimistic about it coming today :)

    Well I hope it gets to you today! Excited to see some handshots, this is just such a neat outcome that you got the original ring you were looking to replicate.

    OUT FOR DELIVERY! Woohoo! Too bad I have to go in to the office today, otherwise I'd sit and wait for the truck like a true weirdo (which I have definitely done before!)
