Hi Ladies!

I normally don’t post (I just look at all your beautiful rings) but I couldn’t resist!

I have BIG ring dreams and hope you enjoy this gallery as much as I enjoyed collecting these beauties!

 

I am a little over the top with a big personality! I could actually pull off an 8 or 10 carat ring. Before you judge me let me tell you a little secret (pssssttttt – I am secretly a celebrity… well in my mind I am! Cool)

 

My dream is a 10 -12 carat (3 stone) asscher, emerald or radiant cut (or combination) with either half moon or trapaziods and a 5 – 12 carat emerald cut eternity band. Innocent

* I originally wanted the Elizabeth Taylor ring! Or Graff had a 21 carat replica! Beautiful! You know what is funny? Though big the Graff girls never look guady! Before the current plethora of get rich quick reality queen’s it WAS women of class, status and substance who had these types of rings. Now we find them on just any finger! Tisk Tisk! Takes away from the beauty!

Anyhooo…. Enjoy!

A huge emerald set in high karat gold. Seems so ancient Egyptian to me. And about 5 times over our budget 😉 

One day, a RHR perhaps.

So much has changed since my post two years ago! Though I still admire, some, ridiculously ginormous ‘celebrity’ rings; I laugh at owing a 12 carat rock! (Sort of embarrassed).

I am also now married – so have had the opportunity to SEE what different shape/size stones look like on hand. I have also started a (part time) engagement ring consulting business and have learned a great deal about diamonds and gemstones.

I am a vintage gal with a flair for the royal/regal/dramatic so while I still like larger than a lot of women, I think a 3ct is WAY more wearable and practical. While it may viewed as over the top (by some) it fits me. I also have size 8 hands! (When I am smaller my ring finger is between a 7.25-7.5)

Will post a few photos that look closer to my dream in MUCH smaller sizes below.

MrsVanilla:  Thanks so much. My modified dream looks more like a 3ct elongated cushion in a pave (not micro pave) setting. This, in a few years, should be doable. 🙂 I also would LOVE an emerald cut moissanite in a three stone baguette setting. Swoons! ♡
