A wee while ago I sent a cheeky pm to the lovely mrscumberbatch asking for some pointers, and recommendations for jewelers, when looking for an engagement ring.

Well mrscumberbatch, I'd like to say a huge thank you! Your advice really helped me to narrow down what I was looking for and I had a fantastic time going into the all of the jewelers that you recommended.

After much deliberation, and much looking in many lovely antique shops, I have a ring! In the end we went for a new ring, but based on some Art Deco styles I'd seen in the shops you recommended. It was made just for me and to my very fussy taste. It's perfect. And I'm afraid the picture doesn't quite do it justice.

flowers and wine for mrscumberbatch

Awww this has made my day grin

I am in bed ill, thought I was hallucinating when I saw my name in a thread title wink

So glad you managed to find 'The Ring'. It's a lot easier when you have an idea of what you want. And yesyes to Art Deco. Always stunning, never dated!

Lovely choice. I am very pleased that you are pleased too!

Oh and you need to wear it somewhere that has those downward spotlights to get maximum sparkling opportunities.

And use your left hand to point at everything. grin

Ooh mrscumberbatch are you the antique jewellery lady? If so could I have some advice please?

That's lovely! What is the blue stone?

I am indeed engaged and it's the most sparkly thing I've ever owned! grin

Thanks everyone. And I hope you feel brighter soon mrscumberbatch

Oh, cross-post. It's an aquamarine dexter. I originally wanted a sapphire but the aqua looked much better next to my peely-wally skin!

dexter73 Wed 26-Mar-14 16:41:14

I think it is a lovely colour and congratulations!

mrscumberbatch Wed 26-Mar-14 16:52:35

The aquamarine is a great choice. Such a good twist on a classic.

Ray I am available anytime. I should probably spend less time on MN shock
