Since I know you all love to see pictures of sparkly things, thought I''d post my mom''s new ring. Here''s the story... My father called me a couple of months ago because he wanted to buy her something *really* special just because. The ''just because'' became the theme around this gift. He asked me to help him create a card and he had all these sweet sayings starting with ''just because''. And it was a good thing he called to get my advice because I knew she wanted a yellow diamond ring and not another necklace like he was going to get her. There''s a standing joke in our family that he always buys her the same (or similar) necklace because that''s the style he likes. Well now she has pretty much the same necklace for every day of the week. It became a joke... another gold necklace... not that that''s a bad thing and she''s very appreciate of his thoughtful and beautiful gifts, but it''s just that she might want some earrings or a bracelet or a ring to go with the gold necklace, you know? Anyway, I was more than happy to help. We actually had a lot of fun doing this together.

So without further ado... here''s her ring.

5.5 FIY VS1 with 2 side trillions (not sure of the size on those) in a yellow gold setting custom designed from Lester Lampert in Chicago. Lester designed the ring himself. He was an absolute pleasure to work with!

Yozzzzzzers! That is so beautiful. I have been wanting a yellow diamond too. Maybe for my next ring if I am very lucky.

Trillions are awesome; MY FAVORITE and next to the yellow! Gorgeous!!!

She was absolutely blown away by this gift. The ring she had been wearing was a 1.5 ct oval that my dad got her 20 yrs. ago as an anniversary gift. He had the new ring inscribed with ''just because''.

W!!! That is a gorgeous ring and your father is so sweet to get it for your mother for *any* reason, but "just because" is the best possible reason of all!

What a sparkler!! I love how the trillions complement the center stone without overpowering it. I am very jealous of your mom!

Wow, that ring is amazing! I just love that whole look. The yellow, the trillians, WOW!

Maybe one day when the house is paid off and the college funds are completed. I love love that ring!

What size is the center stone? Is it a fancy yellow, intense yellow? Whatever it is, the color really pops!

asscherisme - The center stone is 5.5 carats, not sure about the sidestones and it''s a fancy intense yellow. Lester has some beautiful stones!

SkipGirl - I''m glad you''re enjoying the photos. It''s so cute to see my mom so giddy with excitement - she never thought my father would ever buy her such an extravagant gift. Although she absolutely loves it, she says part of her feels a bit guilty wearing it... she''s been so involved in fundraising for a cancer center in her area (she''s a cancer survivor) she felt that the money could have been put to better use. I told her she had done sooooo much already with regards to her charity work... she should wear it and enjoy it in good health!!

Thanks everyone for the wonderful comments!

Its beautiful, but I what I am really loving are all these romantic gestures...how sweet is that. I can only hope my husband feels that lovey towards me in the future (regardless of a ring or not).

I dunno, maybe I just get sappy at the holidays, but your dad sounds like a sweetheart & your mom got such a lovely gift.
