It is a certified 4.32 ct natural untreated padparadscha sapphire from Sri Lanka, set in a simple Tiffany style mounting with round diamonds ~1.36 cts around the center stone.

Hey folks ... I hope there isn''t a policy against posting a  file with a groovy frame ... I''m up early and had some spare time  on my hands ! 
These rings represent my ring taste in the 90''s ... lots of YG, diamonds,  and tanzanite; and a ruby with diamonds in 22 kt from Indiia.

What a great thread!  So much fun having all this great colored stone eyecandy in one place!

Here are a few I haven''t posted before...I think.  These are rings I''ve had for years,  in my "yellow gold period",  long before I discovered jewelry forums and paid attention to stats..

Here''s an aquamarine...from the side it looks like the  S.S.  Enterprise!

And here's a recent project:  It's a pinky ring.  I already had the old deco mounting.  Michael E cut the stone,  and adapted the ring to accommodate it.  It's a 1.33ct aquamarine,  "modified barion cut"  which turned out great.  The aqua is much livelier and more sparkly than I ever expected..

widget,
I love the aquamarine ring and the black opal ring.  I have loved opals forever.  My grandmother who gives me great peices as you well know gave me a 12 carat aquamarine ring flanked with diamonds going down the sides.  I have little hands, think of a kindergartner, so I will give it to my daughter who has long lovely fingers and is way taller than me.

Thanks,  Kaleigh! Image

Can you post a picture of your grandmother''s ring?  I love aquas...it''s my birthstone...but so many of the older pieces,  especially from the ''40s and ''50s,  are so BIG!!

Yes but not any time soon, it''s sitting in my safe deposit box.  It was from the 60''s I believe and is too much for me.  My daughter just turned 17, so it will be hers soon.Image

Here is a picture of my 9 year old daughter''s custom Pink Topaz.  She chose the loose stone and the setting.  it is a 1ct untreated very bright and yummy PInk Topaz emerald cut.  The pictures do not fo it justice.

This thread is so great, if I say so myself! Not that I would ever take credit for what makes this thread great-- all your beautiful colored gem pieces! I wish I could go back and comment on every one, but, sigh, not even I have the time for that!

Thanks for the welcome Widget! It''s not my e-ring - my husband and I picked out the loose stone at a private shop in the USVI last year. We were having difficulty finding a quality emerald we liked (at a good price here in the states). The diamonds were sent here about 6 months later by the same shop and were set in the US. Aside from the wider-than-usual spaces between the stones, it''s perfect in my eyes. BTW, I love this thread - lots of yummies to see!Image
