Heart  Pawn shop buy :)
I love a good pawn shop bargain!

With the Aussie dollar being so shocking I have had to look closer to home for my sparkly fixes, and I always buy a couple of jewellery items when I get my tax return. I found this pretty lab ruby three stone with diamond (not the greatest quality diamonds, but still sparkle nicely, and far better than the pics suggest) halo at a local pawn shop, in perfect new condition for about $140 US ($200 AU.) I then did a little research and found it still sells at a commonly found jeweller for about $1400, so a good bargain in my eyes. The shank is yellow gold and the halo is white, quite reminiscent of my round sapphire three stone I bought at tax time last year Tongue

Oh! Best part is, I actually did not have any red/ ruby stone rings before, so I felt justified in my purchase. I invariably end up wanting to get another blue sapphire ring, even though I have heaps!

Thanks! I am pleased Smile The husband claims to like it too, which is unusual for him. Usually a new purchase is greeted with "ANOTHER one????" and a roll of the eyes. Tongue

What a great find! It's also a nice addition to your collection!

One day, I'll be a crazy old lady weighed down by all my baubles and it will be glorious.
