My Jewel Box: Before & After Yellow Gold Filigree Ring

Isn’t it always nice to receive a gift from someone “just because”…This 14k yellow gold filigree ring was almost one of those, until I got the full story.  My boyfriend went to a pawn shop to buy a gun one day. Knowing how much I hate guns, he knew that if he bought a gun for himself, he ought to buy me a consolation prize.  And that’s just what he did!  This ring goes well with my birthday gift ring he got me this year (pictured above, one with pearls).  I did some tweaking to the ring and tripled its value.  It went from having a small, barely-there single cut diamond to a full cut, 0.10 carat diamond.  Much better!
