And other women get all giddy with excitement over new handbags or new shoes....I get giddy about rings.
So here we go...
This is a $15 000 antique morganite stone set in gold with diamonds and rubies. Fabulous. Interesting little fact, Morganite belongs to the beryl group of gemstones (emeralds, aquamarine), its often referred to as a pink emerald. It was originally named a Pink Beryl but the name was changed when the a certain Mr JP Morgan got hold of one to add to his extensive gem collection (largest in at the turn of the 20th century).
Another antique, this one is a $18,500 French Victorian Ruby ring. I LOVE this ring. I love the shape, the settings, the design. Never seen a ring like this before so I'll start saving up now!
p.s. Little bit of history for you...wedding rings are traditionally worn on the ring finger on the left hand because the vein in the left ring finger (the vena amoris) was believed to be directly connected to the heart. Hmmmm.
