@tbenjamin4884: Thank you for such a sweet message back. 😊
Oh my gosh I know I have flooded these poor threads with my ring! I’m definitely hitting over kill territory I’m afraid. However, some people might not have seen it? Hahaha. I can’t stop! 🀦🏼‍β™€οΈπŸ™ƒ

I would love love love to see your moms similar ring when you get a moment AND the free form one. I love the free form style lately.  β€οΈ

I absolutely adore pawn shop treasures. I don’t have any myself anymore but my mom especially, used to go and take me when I was a kid. She has some amazing jewelry from pawn shops.  Always finding something. 

I too love old stones for the history.  Here is a picture of my original ring. It’s OEC. I designed this one as well. It’s super beautiful and both rings are completely different looks. I do change them up depending on how I’m feeling that day.  I’ll keep them both forever and pass them onto my daughter. I love the idea of her having heirloom jewelry with super old stones.

I do have a wide band setting to share! This is my moms wedding ring my dad bought her after her original was stolen…he bought it at Service Merchandise lol Do y’all remember that store? It was bought in the 90’s and she just gave it to me because she doesn’t wear it anymore. I have been thinking about doing something with the diamonds because they are beautiful, maybe use gold and diamonds to make earrings or something? Anyways I thought I would share a pic πŸ˜‰

@tbenjamin4884:  The new ring is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO gorgeous! The wide setting definately suits you!!! Your moms ring is stunning as well!!!!

Once upon a time I had a wide setting for a diamond and moissanite ring (not quite as thick as yours) and I really enjoyed it cause it felt EXTRA strong, but my fingers are just too short and chubby for that kinda setting IMO, I felt the need to always have oval nails to make my fingers look longer haha… but the size wasn’t what I wanted for longterm either …  I had fun while it lasted! I scored it on Poshmark, and ended up reselling it!

@tbenjamin4884:  It’s been fun following your ring journey! 

My mom just gifted this ring to me this weekend. She found it at a pawn shop in the late 90s, and she doesn’t know any specs on the diamond except that there is one black speck on the table so the clarity can’t be too high. Besides the speck though it seems decently white and sparkly! I love how the wide band and simple setting somehow still seems modern.
