Eeegads! Is anyone else out there compulsive??


I just won this: 1.45ctw omc three stone in platinum mounting, circa 1930. I paid $10 per point. I see the middle stone may be questionable and the setting is a bit wonky, but I could get a quote from Singlestone to reproduce it. The vendor has 100% feedback and a 7 day return policy.

I''d love input, on the ring OR my need for an intervention!

Hey-a!

I saw this ring. It's cool, but honestly, I am not crazy about the center stone and the matching. The center is an omc, and the sides appear to be oec. That's just me, though, and I am a stickler about matching. Good thing about the return policy--it could be great in person, but the seller photos don't do it.

I feel ya on the compulsive component!

The engraving is cool--and I love that it's clearly a very old piece.

It''s hard to tell from the pictures, but if you don''t love it you can return it.

I can be pretty compulsive with ebay jewelry myself, so I know how you feel!

Dittoes. I do love OMCs (and OECs, for that matter), but it''s hard to tell what these look like in these non-PS-quality pics
Absolute worst-case scenario, you don''t like it and return it - no biggie!

I''ve always wanted a three stone, and if the stones pan out but the setting is as wonky as it looks in the pics, I can have Ari reproduce it. If the stones don''t wow me though, I won''t hesitate to send it back for a refund!

I emailed you about this.
Was this recently, or a while ago? What the heck did I say? My fibromyalgia has been wreaking havoc with my memory lately!!!

BTW tradergirl, when are we going to get together and oogle sparklies?

Ari could also tweak the original setting--it''s a cool old setting!
That would be ideal! I''d much rather stay original.

It''s not just dryness, it''s age. As we get older, our skin gets wrinkled. Some day it will happen to you too, if you live long enough.

I don''t think any amount of lotion is going to make that hand look smooth and young. Maybe she should have used a young friend or relative as a hand model.

I am drawn to the stones...I kinda think you might have an overall looker there.

Looking forward to real life pics!

I saw that ring on ebay too-looking forward to hearing what you think when you get it!

The trivia..Palmolive? Oil of Olay? Ponds? You know this will stick in my mind all night until you give the answer.

Did this commercial by any chance involve a nail technician named Madge???

BTW, I like the ring and I''d love to see YOUR hand pics of it!!!
