 About 6 weeks ago, I ordered from an “overstock” company a 7.5mm forever brilliant moissanite ring in 14k gold for $370.  A great price cause they are discontinued.  However, I received a 8mm forever one in 14k! No complaints here!😂

catgirl447 :   Your ring is beautiful!  I also got my mossianite ring from Overstock.  We paid $500 for the same ring that sales at Helzberg Diamonds for $1200.

$30 for my white sapphire wedding set and I love it more after realizing that our wedding date 7/3 and there are 7 stones on the engagement ring and 3 on the wedding band

So, I have no idea where this ring comes from, I don’t remember buying it. I don’t wear it often because I don’t like the setting, nor the halo with those terrible stones but I LOVE the color of the center stone (and I have no idea what is is either). I just inspected that center stone closer, and realized that it is terribly cut 😂. I still love that color. By the window

Our upgrade rings. Altogether they were about $60. Amazon is a magical place.

I just got this cz and sterling silver ring for about $70 from Etsy.  It’s a new stand in ring for when we travel.  I feel like the picture doesn’t do it justice

My engagement ring is a created ruby with 6 teeny tiny diamonds. We got it half price, for just AU $129!

 I felt like trying on my rings this morning.  I maybe have a collection of wedding ring sets. See, I had to take my actual set into the store and bought a few sets to wear in the meantime Then it occurred to me that I’d have to get my actual set resized to wear it after we get further along in the pregnancy. So I bought a few more. I actually have a couple more on the way that haven’t come in yet.

All are 925 silver with Cz. One does have a fake sapphire though.  None of the sets cost more than $30 though and none have become discolored or turned my finger green.  One of the Cz has gotten really cloudy. My fav is the Cz solitare with 8 stone bands on either side(2nd row). Only $6.99 from aliexpress and really sparkly. I may try to back them all today.  It would be fun!

I just realized i forgot to add this set which I really like and think looks kinda unique.  It was $29 off eBay 

Anyway,  some standalone rings too.

Actually had some changes from baking the Cz this time.   A couple look a lot better.  But 2 sets were from aliexpress and cost under $6 and were apparently not real silver because the metal was discolored from the heating.

Before on the left and after on the right. I baked for 2 hours at 425 and left cooling I’m the oven for an hour until they were cooled off.  I read that opening the oven during baking or taking them out before they cool can cause bad things to happen to them. 

I think the difference it most obvious I’m the smallest solitare.  Although I will say they are coming off yellower in the pics Vs IRL.
