PostSubject: Sharing my new LH ring purchase!   Wed May 20, 2015 10:18 pm

I just bought a 'cameo' style ring that someone was selling on the Little House cast reunion facebook page!  This is (supposedly) from the cast's costume collection.  A couple of people commenting on the post believe they've seen it in an episode before....possibly on an Oleson relative. I feel like I need to watch the entire series again just to search for the ring! Laughing I'm going to take the person's word for it...it certainly fits the era and looks like something that would be worn in the series.  She wanted $50 and took $30 so I consider it to be a deal. I'm pretty excited!!! dancegirl  These are the pictures she posted to the page:

Good find, Amy!!! And pretty!! I hope you do see it on the show. Not many characters wore nice jewelry, so it shouldn't be too hard to find..... Thumbsup

Thanks Rhonda....I'm not even sure it's going to fit or if I'll actually wear it. I just felt like it would be pretty neat to own something from the set, especially a piece of jewelry. And I was thinking that a lot of the cast members frequent that FB page, so I do think it is authentic---she knows she'd run the risk of cast members possibly knowing it was a 'fake' otherwise and calling her out on it. And yes, a couple of people are thinking they saw it either on Harriet or on an Oleson relative. One woman thought she remembered it from the scene where Mrs. Oleson comes back from a trip with gifts for Nancy and Willie, and she 'thinks' it's the episode "Elmer". I don't own that season so I can't check...do you have that one, Rhonda?

That is SO COOL, Amy!! I can't wait to see it in person! Even if it doesn't fit you it will be great to own a PART of the show itself!

Very interesting! I can't say I have seen anyone wearing that on the show, but I haven't seen all of the episodes yet... But it does seem to be something you would see on one of the Olesons.

I have all of the seasons, but I don't remember seeing an episode titled "Elmer". What season would that be?

It's kind of nicknamed "Elmer". The episode title is For the Love of Nancy, and is in season 8, I believe. "Elmer" is the name of the boy who's infatuated with Nancy.

Oh, okay! Here I was looking through all of the episodes wondering why I didn't see that. Thanks!

Well, unfortunately Alison Arngrim DID come on the page and believes it IS a fake.  She got some other guy involved too who tends to know about these things from the set, and he can't verify that it wasn't on there but he doesn't believe it was either.  The seller however truly believed it WAS authentic...she was very hurt that she was being accused and I do believe her that SHE believed she had a something from the set. She said she originally had the certificate of authenticity from that and the other ring she bought (and had lost it, which I can understand) but Alison said those can easily be faked too.  She says she's never ever seen it on the show.  This lady still believes it IS from the set (I mean, Alison wasn't even on the last two years of the show, am I right?  I'm not positive she would know if this were worn by Harriet or an Oleson relative in those later seasons, you know?) but needless to say I was able to back out of the sale and the lady fully understood and said it was fine.  I mean, the ONLY reason I wanted the ring was because it was part of the set.  It sounds like we'll never really know.  Oh well, wasn't meant to be!

Well I think it is a great find no matter what. It just might be from the show, so yes, I would probably look closely at several episodes. Beautiful!

If I do see it in an episode, I'm going to kick myself for backing out, lol!  It's really not something I would wear much, Gin...I am not a yellow gold fan---I like white gold and rose gold---but I just wanted something that I was 'sure' was from the show.  It is pretty though!  If anyone wants it, I can let you know how to get in touch with the lady on facebook.

At least you didn't spend the money, get it, and then find out!

Exactly. yes  I'm glad she was nice about it and did understand why I was skeptical at that point.

OHHHH I thought you did get it. I saw the post from the lady and who thought it was a fake. The tags do look different.

I'm so glad that you backed out of the sale Amy. Eric Cannon knows his LHOP and if he says it wasn't in the show, then I believe him. i read that post when she put it up and I felt sorry for her when Eric told her it was fake. She sounded really hurt but she was duped. I'm so glad that you weren't.

That is just wrong saying it was on LHOTP when it wasn't.

I felt so sorry for her too!  She was definitely hurt...I know she was not trying to sell a fake---she really believed it was the real deal.  


Thank you Jacob....i wish it would have worked out too.
