Traditionally non-traditional bling

Indeed I did forget to follow through on my promise of pictures of the ring.


These pictures are kinda blurry but at least you get an idea for what it looks like. And that big speck on the sapphire? That's sensor dust on the camera. Too lazy to fix it for you this a.m. The ring is a 2.1 carat sapphire set in 18K white gold with about a half a carat of diamonds on the sides. The ring was originally made in 1910 - and now that it's sized down, the ring fits a little different on my finger than it did in these pictures. I love it, but the prongs on it snag often on clothing - and are always catching little bits of fuzz in it. I think you can click the picture to make it bigger.

What a lovely heirloom in the making!

I would take it to the jeweler for the prongs. It should not snag, and once it snags on something stronger than the prong especially since it is gold...it doesn't even bear imagining.

Oh it's so pretty! I have my mom's ring and we reset it because I was so hard on the prongs. Be careful with that baby! (you know about personal article floaters right? :))
