Gem Gossip Engagement Ring!

I’ve written about, criticized, adored and appraised hundreds of engagement rings since entering the jewelry industry. I wished and hoped for one day to finally have my own since I was little.  I am happy to announce, on a personal level, that I am engaged and wanted to share with all my readers my ring.  Here are the details:

Victorian, circa late 1800s, 14k rose gold bypass ring set with two Old European cut diamonds, each in six delicate “claw” prongs.  Each diamond is has a VVS-2 clarity and average color of LM range, and total approximately 2.60 carats.  Of course, it is from Walton’s Antique Jewelry, where I work.

*thank you Matt, looking forward to lots of fun memories and a lifetime together

ALSO, I will be live tweeting from the Miami Antique Jewelry Show starting tomorrow!  So I may be MIA (literally) from here for a week–but daily updates on Instagram and Twitter from the show will continue.  So follow me on Instagram and Twitter!
