Do Over: Aquamarine Ring

Eight or nine years ago, the artist Rachel Feinstein appeared in a Marc Jacobs ad wearing her signature 68 carat aquamarine ring. This ring fired up a desire to obtain a ginormous jewel. The closest I could afford at the time was an approximately 10 carat stone set in a kind of ugly silver setting.

Fast forward a few more years, when I started to get a feel for finding jewels at thrift shops. I found up a funky 10k ring mount in Kitchener and thought, hey, maybe the aquamarine would fit in this crazy setting. And it did.
