Oopsie, sorry, got distracted. Here she is.
The setting is made by Belais in 18kt yellow gold. The sapphires are tealish, a color I didn’t yet have. And I loved the profile. So with me it went.

We are out antiquing today but I came across these @stracci2000 and thought of you. I did buy a couple of things I’ll share later when we get home :)

I've never seen Wedgwood atomizers before!
So pretty. I really love the black and white.

I can't wait to see what treasures you found today!!

So here are the goodies from today minus an EBay goodie that you’ll have to wait for ;-)

DH found this when we first got to the antique shop, a whole set of milk glass spice jars. He bought me a set at Christmas but I needed a set with more jars so here we are. Bonus, they are very clean on the inside

I actually spotted this last time I was there, it looks exactly like a Wolf brand but isn’t stamped. Still lots of compartments and easy to hide or take with me. Yes sometimes I actually take my most prized sparkles with me because I’m so afraid of being robbed again.

Really pretty locket, @stracci2000 ! Love the design!

It was dirty and tarnished. Someone wore it a lot, as the bail is partially worn away by friction from the chain.
It is very satisfying to rehab a pretty old antique!

A little trip to the pawn shop today for a little birthday bling yielded me this.

Antique setting platinum with antique cut diamonds that total 1.10 carats approximately, the center is about half carat alone.

The owner told me this came from the collection of a wealthy woman in town. She comes in about every six months or so and sells to him.

This ring is gorgeous @YadaYadaYada!! Those diamonds are beautiful and the setting is just so pretty. Wonderful find, I'm excited for you!!

Thanks June! Now the real test is I have some things coming from EBay that I bought before this. Only keeping one piece so depending on what the EBay stuff looks like.....

In any case I couldn’t leave her there, she is too beautiful to not be admired regularly.

Whoa I love the detail of that Belais! I got a Belais band in December and I am so in love with it. This is amazing.

So if you choose not to keep her, will you be listing her??? Asking for a friend... ahem
