Here's the post for my Daniel M ring: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-danielm-pink-tourmaline.159832/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-danielm-pink-tourmaline.159832/[/URL]
Here's the link to my Barry Pink Tourm: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/the-perfect-pink-tourmaline.159577/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/the-perfect-pink-tourmaline.159577/[/URL]
And now here's a picture of both of them "set"
I can’t keep two pink rings when I’m trying to save for a sapphire. I don’t want to give either up, but I need to. So which should it be? I know that selling either won’t be easy and I’m going to take a hit either way, but which would be less of a hit? Or should I just suck it up and have two rings?

Barry's stones do well in their resale value, and resell quickly. If you want to make more money, I would probably resell that one.

I love them both, but I prefer the Daniel M. Also, the resell point above this post sounds sensible too.

Realistically, I guess it depends on how much you are hoping to achieve by selling. Re-sale value means you'll take quite a bit hit on what you paid so it's probably only worth selling if you're prepared for that.

I would hold onto both and save up for the sapphire.

You know that's the answer I want to hear (heehee). I'm so bad and my husband's gonna kill me, but it's alright. I've been killed several times before. ;-)

Oh, my - I'm fanning myself over hear. That Daniel M. is gorgeous! It reminds me a lot of Haven's new cushion reset.

I totally think you should sell that one. TO ME!

Yep, I'd hold on to both and just save up for the sapphire.

Have to agree with the majority. Keep them both. Then just think, once you have enough to get the sapphire you want and can get that set you will have three awesome rings! :bigsmile:

Well, if I do decide to sell the Daniel M, I guess I would get a few nibbles. :D Good to know.

Yeah, go for it & keep both. You can always sell later if you need to. I've been killed a few times myself & expect it again soon because I'm gonna get my blue spinel set finally. Oh well, better to die with 2 rings than 1!

I just need to get more hands to justify it all. Shouldn't be too difficult right?

I listed the DanielM. :( I need to be a grown up. I wanted to buy a setting for Big Barry and don't have the funds for that and I'm trying to save for the sapphire. I just need to be a grown up. But we'll see. Thank you for following along in my saga.

It's beautiful! If it weren't for my freakishly large 8.25 fingers and empty bank account thanks to my wedding, I'd totally be all over it! :rodent:

I don't think we're allowed to say for sure here, but if you do a google search for diamond and the word bistro, you'll see it. :D

And here's a pic of Barry set. My GOD his cuts glow, don't they?

aha! So this is how some of the purchases between people have been made. Another site to obsessively check.
