I think she’s just wanting to start a thread about beautiful rings regardless of their price tag

Supersleuth:  $750K?!! Oh man. That’s a lotta dough. I’ll bet there are not so pretty rings at the price, too. Wow, that is gorgeous though! My ring was a wee bit closer to the other end of the spectrum and I love it, too!

Supersleuth:  That second ring reminds me of of the style of Anna Scheffield rings. I think they are lovely!

My e-ring is actually appraised at $29,500 retail. FI and I are not wealthy by any means-I just happened to luck out in that I inherited a beautiful diamond from my grandmother, which was given to her by her great grandmother. It’s over 100 years old, and from what I’ve read they didn’t use diamonds with perceivable inclusions in jewelery at that time. They also cut for brilliance rather than weight, and diamonds were cut by hand, using candlelight, to ensure radiance. Nowadays antique cushion cuts are highly imitated but authentic ones are highly unique, which adds to their value. So even though I’m not rocking a 10 carat monster like Kim K, my ring is worth several times the cost of my car, and I love it dearly. I don’t normally talk about the monetary value of it because it’s crass, but this topic allowed me to just this once 😀 

So anyways, here is what an almost 30k ring looks like, you might be surprised:

For those into “specs” it’s a 1.67 carat antique cushion cut, VS2 F clarity with 1/6 ct side stones. 

Here it is with the matching bands (promise ring and wedding band) 1/8 total carat weight in each band:
