My rhr’s are mostly all pre-loved! I love vintage jewelry especially with antique stones so I have quite a few rings that I’ve gotten on etsy and ebay for pretty cheap.

My engagement ring (waiting on proposal) is also pre-loved but it needed the head replaced. It’s an OMC solitaire.

Okay, it is official. I’m hitting up some pawn shops this weekend. Do you find rural or urban pawn shops to have the best bargains?

I am obsessed with small vintage e rings! And small stones are so in right now! All the above, I bought online. All are real diamonds or gemstones and 14k or 18k gold. I paid less than $200 each, most were closer to $100. I think I have a problem!

itsmeandmrjones :  You got an absolute STEAL!  Your ring is gorgeous.  Also, just had to tell you that your ruby band makes me swoon.

PeaceandSunshine :  I have found some of my best pieces in the cities you probably wouldn’t want to go to after dark. That said you just never know, it also helps to establish a relationship with the owner.  One shop I go to my husband left him a great review on FB and he mentions it every time I go in!

mrsroco :  thank you so much!  Definitely couldn’t have afforded an OEC in that size otherwise.  The ruby ring was a RubyLane find, I have seen some great eternities on there especially in the smaller sizes.

PeaceandSunshine :  That is a very beautiful and interesting piece! It’s a shame you don’t like it as what a lovely ring to inherit .Will you sell it or hold onto it for a future recipient?

This is a great thread idea! It’s so fun seeing all of these gorgeous rings!! I found an estate sale ring on Ebay.  It should be here in a couple of days 🤗  The unique design caught my eye as I happen to be looking for a princess cut. The designer is mireya…I just love this!!! I’ll take pictures when it gets here, but for now here are some online pictures…I plan on wearing it with my wedding band. Total weight. 91  .65 princess diamond,   a small diamond on each side,   14k white gold
