Oooh literally all of my RHRs are preloved! Better for the environment and my budget! Ok, ngl my budget was the main thing…

Size 7-7.25 if anyone is wondering

3 stone classic C&C OEC moissanites (4mm-6mm-4mm) in white gold – wearing on my left hand here when my ring was in the shop

IDK if this counts but my stone is pre-loved (jewels by grace). An antique cushion – my dew drop!

elderbee :  Thank you so much! You are kind. Funnily enough, my ‘real’ wedding band is a plain band exactly the same width as my emerald cut band, though a different metal! I never intended to wear them together though, because plain bands next to the emerald cut band make everything look really…blocky? I think it has something to do with the bar setting. I’m not sure how to explain it, but I didn’t like it together when I tried it. I wear my wedding band separately when I want to forego the sparkle. 🙂

redearthlady :  <3 you’re the sweetest

wrkbrk :  Thank you so much! I *adore* your set — one of my favs here! The nail colour was Chanel Rouge Noir 🙂

noraann :  I am loving all these unique finds. Such beautiful rings everyone!! Also, this seems like a much more sustainable way to buy wedding jewelry.

Not trying to be a show off but these are two more pawn shop finds, I buy as much jewelry as possible secondhand.  

The one on the the left I sold but it was an OEC with single cut diamonds in a Stuller setting.  The other is one carat total with three rows of different old cut diamonds, I just love it because it is so sparkly.

There are so many great rings in this thread, wish I had thought of vintage rings for our engagement!

I recently got a pre-owned emerald pear with diamond accents RHR. It was under $100 at a pawn shop!
