Antique Jewelry Eye Candy

So I went to see my local antique jeweler, Ari at SIngle Stone this past weekend. I thought I would ask if I can take some photos of a few pieces that I tried on to share with my fellow diamond lovers:

Rose cut earrings, tcw 1.78, new setting


The following pair is a period piece in origina setting. Carat weight unknown (sorry)

Next, the granddaddy of all earrings, 6+ ctw antique cushion earrings, in a reproduction setting. This is my dream pair of earrings. The one I would skip town with. The one I would consider trading DH's right arm for (dont be alarmed, he's a lefty). The one I would...well, let's just say I cant say what else I would do for this pair of earrings...

Yes, Amy and Irish - a girl can always dream, right? *sigh*

I swear, if I can afford that pair, I would die a HAPPY HAPPY woman! Glad someone understands why I would trade DH's right arm for these///

Wow! Ari is local to you?! How lucky (and broke) are you!

I love French cut stones. Unfortunately I've only ever seen them in person once and couldn't afford to take them home with me.

I don't blame you for giving his right arm for those earrings - to be honest, anything but your ears would be acceptable to give.

COOL ^_^ I like the earrings with the old mine cuts. The look huge!

The bands with the yellow and blue sapphires, are those old European cut diamonds?

French cuts are rather uncommon. Do they come up to a point on their crown? I forget.
