    My newly acquired 2.05ct Paraiba in 18k WG with rose cut diamonds. It’s a preowned item.
    I wish it’s bigger though :tongue:

    Bought a set of 2.0tcw 1.8mm x64 Bubblegum pink Burmese Spinel recently, and a 2.31ct Madagascan Apatite 8.20 x 7.11 x 5.08mm from Gem Earth via Jeff Davies and Friends FB auction page.

    Bought this Heart of Water Ara ring with 9ct teal zircon. Though the zircon has extinction, something about the ring just speaks to me. Perfectly imperfect.

    All, I have been meaning to post an update, but have been a bit too disappointed to do so until now : (

    I was very sad to find that this bracelet is too big for me and cannot be altered to fit me properly due to the link sizes/style : (
    I have been working with the vendor to safely return her, but the trouble is she has to travel back to the UK and insuring her has been difficult to date. We are still working on it. I thought to see about selling her to someone who may be able to enjoy her the way she should be in the US, but no takers thus far. I continue to work with the vendor to try to get her home safely.

    Unsure. Thought about resetting with a colored stone, but also thinking about making it a pendant or removing the shank and turning it into a charm for my charm bracelet. Lots of options.....

    I need a ring like I need another hole in my head. But alas, hole in the head it is, lol. Here is my new to me wonky diamond halo ring in platinum.

    I know it's not everyone's cuppa tea, but the unusual design with 2 heart shaped diamonds in the center & the asymmetrical marquise halo just tickles my fancy:kiss2:

    I hope I'll love it as much in person (fingers crossed).

    Thank you @icy_jade for loving my ring :razz:
    I have not decided whether should I reset it.....
    Realized its tip isn’t covered wz a claw or “v” so I am wearing it with the tip facing me for time being. Hopefully it will reduce the risk of chipping :(sad

    It came but went back for a resize as I couldn’t figure out which finger I wanted to wear it on, but I have one sneak peak ring picture. The basket is slightly wonky but it works for my RHR

    I actually ended up not getting that ring. I thought it was a Deco piece but it wasn’t. I guess if I really loved it, that wouldn’t have made a difference!

    It’s by Sophia D: http://sophiad.com/product-details.php?cid=4_34&pid=662

    Someone else bought it after I returned it.

    Ok everyone, I need your help and input.
    The antique French Art Deco bracelet that I purchased from the UK and that I need to return seems impossible to return fully insured. I cannot find an insurer/service to help me. They either 1) do not cover precious or semi-precious stones (such as the diamonds in my bracelet) and/or 2) only work with businesses and will not ship just 1 package for an individual.

    I cannot safely get this bracelet back to the vendor and the vendor is unwilling to take any responsibility for the shupment. They honestly sound shady to me as they have said of they open the box and the bracelet isn't there and I haven't had it insured etc etc etc. I worry that they may simply "say" the box was empty now upon receipt, so I absolutely need full coverage on the bracelet in case the vendor sadly plays games.

    I have tried Shipsurance (they won't work with individuals, only businesses that ship frequently), U-PIC doesn't cover jewelry (will not insure precious/semi-precious stones), Parcel Pro (also won't work with individuals)

    I seem to be out of luck- my Homeowner's insurance policy won't cover anything "in transit" and they don't offer separate policies for antiques.
