With so many unique and one-of-a-kind pieces out there, I'll bet that there's one you missed out on and still think about from time to time. Let's commiserate!

I'll go first:

There have been two OECs on LT lately and they were well-priced and looked like good performers. Ultimately I decided to save my budget for something bigger, but wow - I still think I may have missed a great opportunity! Pics below. Can't wait to hear YOUR stories of "love and loss" ;-)

I have been lusting after this black opal with diamonds. It is still for sale but I can't have it. :boohoo:

I missed out on Soxfans sapphire three stone ring a few months back. I didn't pull the trigger quick enough - I was second in line! Darn, should have went with my gut and purchased it. :boohoo:

Re: Tell me about

So when they do "get away"... do you think it's for a good reason? Like, maybe we knew in our gut (like you said) that it WASN'T the right time or the right stone?

Or is hindsight 20/20?

I know there have been many rings that I've loved and have gotten away :naughty: and I think about them still... but I can't buy every single ring I've ever coveted! I'm not that wealthy yet haha.

I've also bought rings I knew that I *just had to have* and then worn them twice in two years... you know? So what does that mean? But I am certain if I hadn't bought it, I would've thought about it often.

Yes, for a good reason! I did not get the sapphire ring however am able to put the funds towards something else that I wanted more. A vintage style ring with a beautiful OEC!

There was a platinum ring by otherwise-engaged on etsy that sold the day before my fiancé told me to send him rings. It was platinum with an OEC moissanite (I know!) but it had four leaf clovers in the sides and it was just beautiful. I'm not sure if I can share it since its moissanite.
