DH collects coins and buys silver/gold. I went with him to the coin store a few weeks ago and saw this beautiful antique filigree ring with a round diamond…guess who has had her eye on antique filigree settings for her 1ct VVS1 H color round solitaire? This girl!
We went back to the coin shop today so DH could buy more silver. I asked to see the ring out of the case and showed it to him. It was marked $1699 so I asked if they’d consider selling just the setting because the diamond in the ring was not attractive (.85 ct but J color and I clarity). The shop owner said yes – for $250!
My instinct is to want to reset it in August for our 1 year anniversary, but it’s also going to drive me crazy knowing that I have a beautiful setting just sitting in DH’s safe. He said it’s up to me – what would you do?
