Success! woohoo.gif

Thanks to the lovely ladies of PS, without whom this mission could not have been possible, as they tirelessly and sneakily sleuthed their way through the perils of ebay and other sites for my sake, slipping me listings in top-secret drop spots and coded in ciphers, and finally I have a ring!

Their Mission Impossible was to find the following:
1. Yellow gold shank
2. No colored stones
3. If ring has diamonds, they are set in white metal
4. Neither e-ring nor w-band but suggestive of both
5. Stackable with future e-ring and w-band
6. Size 8.5-9 or resizable
7. Within budget of $350ish!

Optional preferences:
Antique/vintage/filigree/deco styling
You see the daunting task with which they were faced? gaah.gif

But they persevered in their covert mission, tracking down sparklies in secret like keen-eyed ninjas of bling. ninja.gif

Now that it's safe to post the listing, here is the little beauty that will soon be on it's long journey to my avaricious fingers:

I am beyond thrilled, and so so thankful!

Thanks everyone! The seller emailed me today and gave me my tracking number because my baby is ON THE WAY! :appl:

After the heartbreak that happened with the last ring (someone sniped it after links were posted in the thread) they had to be super sneaky about how they gave me options.

Normally I find bezels to be too clunky looking and too likely to darken the diamonds for my personal taste, but with the milligraining it just makes it all look so delicate and the diamonds were so bright! I had several options I was considering but I always came back to this one. :love:

It needs to be sized when it gets here, so it will be a while, but I will post a SMTB thread with action shots when it does- a friend has a phone with a camera so she can snap some pics for me under the bright lights at work, which will be great! :D
