There is a jewelry store in downtown Boston that features estate jewelry in their window. I was looking and doing some wishful shopping, a couple of young girls next to me, "oh how ugly" came out of one mouth. Little did they know that in a few years they would understand and appreciate it. And they would be doing their own wishful shopping.
My son told me the other day, my favorite cut of diamond, the Marquis, is definitely out of favor. He took several of them out of the showcase and removed the stones and they sold the gold. The gold brought more than the stones. Too bad. I think it is such a graceful and elegant cut. I remember when the Tiffany solataire with a plain gold band was all the rage. I told my son I wanted an emerald cut saphire with at least .25 ctw diamond on the sides in white gold. I like simplicity. I have a small saphire in silver with diamond chips on the side. You would need the Hubble telescope to see them.
