My Birthstone Ring

Well the title of the story says it all really . . . but to elaborate . . . it is an 8 x 10 mm oval 5 karat aquamarine faceted gem stone centered by 2 diamond chips in a 14 karat gold basket ring setting . . . I found it several years ago in an antique store . . . and it hasn't left my body since . . . quite literally . . . I could not believe the price $150 nor the fact that I just happened to have a coupon voucher for the store to save an additional 40% off any one item . . . so I paid an unbelieveable price of about $85 total for it . . . the ring fits me like custom to my finger and I fell in love with it on sight . . . but also knowing jewelry and the values I knew it was a steal . . . and sure enough I went to the appraisers and it was valued at $1,000.00 . . . what's kinda cool about the ring for me is I am a Pisces with an Aries accendant or rising sign . . . and the large centered aquamarine is Pisces birthstone with 2 diamond accents which is Aries birthstone. I absolutely adore this piece and feel very lucky to have it.
