    Thus pawn shop had several nice diamond rings. Nope! Couldn’t buy it. My supervisor asked me to pick up an extra shift so I jokingly told her “I can go buy myself something now!” And took a picture of this and sent it to her!

    . Nope had to leave it there. It’s been there for over 1.5 years. Saw it there the first time I went in that shop in Nov ‘17.

    I love it but it seems priced really high.

    That’s ridiculous for a pawn shop. No wonder it’s sitting there so long. It really is pretty though!

    Thanks for the warm words! I won't have it with me until March to take more photos. I shall put up more photos if you'd like to see then.

    I'm also very happy that you find it pretty. I'm a novice with gemstones and only started looking into it for my engagement. We also had a modest budget so none of the stones is really with killer specs (and this site is filled with breathtaking wonders!).

    The main stones are unheated/untreated Mozambique rubies ranging from 1.07ct to 1.24ct. They are dark "vivid red" or vivid red w/out strong fluorescence as per the GRS reports. The setting is custom made with 6 accent diamonds and 2 baguette to mimic the look of a ruby ring we found online and both fell in love with.

    Here is our inspiration photo:

    329AE0CA-1790-4060-86D9-4D03A9C91A7A.jpeg Ok. So I know I have been on a reset rampage. But I can honestly say that I’m quite taken by this most recent one! Here she is. My 2.52 I in her new dress.

    Ty! I use my iPhone 7. Nothing else. I just make sure there is a bit of shade on a sunny day. Most are taken in my car under those conditions.

    @nala..I always say I LOVE seeing her in all her settings. This new one is gorgeous. It showed me I can take my diamond out and reset it for a change without it being a big deal. I just had my diamond set in a new setting this past year..and I can’t believe I’m missing my six prong cathedral setting. It made my stone look larger. I wouldn’t do the cathedral again because it was too high but I would like it to be a little higher. I still love my new setting but the profile not as much.

    Haha! Thanks @nala! I’m in the middle of so many things right now I’m waiting for a while! I do love it but it’s just a little too low...I have to think about what I would do about it.
