I hope these are not too small!!! Details are 50 stone OEC graduated line bracelet-- made around 1920's. Bezel set with milgrain on top and sides. Approx. 4.65 tcw and estimate H color range VS clarity.

I was in NYC for work last week... spent ALL my free time wandering the diamond district and spent ZERO money. Well... starts to snow.. flights no go... and stuck in the city for an extra day and THANK GOODNESS! Found this treasure in the hour right before heading to airport for 2nd and final time!

And... I called Ari and he said come anytime... will try to head over on my lunch break Monday to drop off cushion. YEA!

DANI....OHHHHH... I saw that design and it is AWESOME! last time I was in there a sweet young couple came in and bought the same one! it looks great with the OEC's rather than typical RB eternity band. Lots of fire!!! I saw two diamond sizes... what one you want?? Larger or more narrow? i am jealous! I want one too!!! I thought the price he gave the couple for I believe around 1.5 TCW was good (they got the thicker one). I forget ring size... maybe 5.5? It was bwtween 3k- 4k...but closer to 3 i THINK. do not quote me.

I know!! I love this ring so much!! Although I should save getting it for our one yr anniversary (I just got married 3 mths ago)- I want it now!! I am such a brat, LOL!!! I think I want the 1.50 ctw. Ari said he thinks that is the perfect size. I am choosing between this ring and diamond studs- what would you do? Hard decision, but I already have a pair of antique looking pave halo earrings that I wear everyday that I love. Ohhh...decisions, decisions!!! I am also curious to see what you do with your pendant...a cushion pendant is definitely on my wishlist too- it never ends!!!

The price you remember him quoting that couple is correct-low 3's. I am a little nervous to buy anything sight unseen, but Ari was so sweet about taking the ring back if it wasn't exactly what I wanted....I know I will work with him eventually...its just a matter of time (and money!!)!!

I have the bracelet now... but can not figure out how to take pics on my wrist and hold camera at same time. They had to fix the clasp and just received in mail.

dani... I would go with 1.5. The smaller one looks more like a stackable /more simple and delicate. The larger one can be worn alone and looks great...but I also tried it on with one of their e-rings and it looked great together. very easily worn with solitaire next to it. The web picture is blah.. it does not show any of the fire.

Green-

Im sorry to hijack your thread...would you go with the SS ring or diamond stud earrings? Just curious, b/c you''ve seen the ring IRL....

I do not remember seeing studs... I will look next time. Are you getting studs at SS?

ring would be PERFECT one year anniv. gift. I swear... if you like OEc and vintage look I would go with ring 100%. It looks great on. The ONLY thing I would mention because you can see from ring pic and my bracelet pic...

the milgrain on my bracelet is very very fine and straight and even. His ring also has small milgrain...but i believe on purpose it is not exactly as precise as my bracelet. It gives it a more well worn look. Does that make sense? It makes it look more hand made and original in my mind ... a tad more chunky than the tiny milgrain seen on the sides of my bracelet.

LOL, Green! I mentioned previously that I was deciding between this ring and a pair of diamond studs ( not from SS). I was choosing between the 2. But I have a really pretty pair of antique looking pave halo studs that I wear everyday and love. So I wondering what would make me happier and what I would get the most use out of.....this ring, or plain studs?

OK, no more hijacking, PROMISE!!!

dani- you can only wear one pair of earrings at once... but you can wear this ring at same time as others. If you see what I mean about milgrain and like... I say go for ring.
