Re: Spinel, fire opal, yellow FCD:s, coral, emerald

What a beautiful collection. Simply gorgeous! I especially love the silver necklace with spinels, sapphire and emeralds. Is it a lariat or is that purple spinel cushion fixed in place? I'm starting to feel very attracted to lariat-type necklaces. :D Oh, so it was you who purchased the baby emerald ...

More pictures of the emerald. Of course, it is tiny, but I've noticed that the vivid gems are the ones that I use again and again, regardless of size.

I think so too, Acinom. Doable. :bigsmile: And at least when I had my mamaring made, the "art effect" of having something so unique made just for me, lasted a long long time.

Re: Spinel, fire opal, yellow FCD:s, coral, emerald

Then a coral ring from Linda Blumel Designs at Etsy. I heartily recommend her, the quality is exceptional and she is super nice. I wanted a ring to match these earrings that I got from my aunt for my sixteenth birthday. The ring is wonderful!

Re: Spinel, fire opal, yellow FCD:s, coral, emerald

Then another favorite, from Sally again. The heart shaped spinel is strongly saturated, a bit hazy. I won it from Tan in an auction during the crazy days. In some pictures it is with a fire opal pendant. The settings are yellow gold.

Then, my darling. Vivid fancy yellow diamond, 0,38 ct, set in white gold with teeny tiny yellow gold prongs. You should see it in daylight! I don't know what is the yellow equivalent of kryptonite, but this is it. Someone on PS gave me the advice, when I asked about FCD:s, to buy the most vivid colo...

Next a fun necklace with purple spinels from Tan, sapphires from Mastercutgems and emeralds from Sally, who designed the necklace. Which is all silver. I wear this with the emerald cabochon rose gold ring also from Sally at Heart of Water Jewels.

Re: From purple rhapsody to black hole, a literal killer bez

February the 12th, Chrono. =) Of course, delays are possible, but I hope not. They told me only a few of their goldsmiths are able to make this design, so that is why it is taking so long. I figure, for a forever ring, it is worth the wait. Thanks for keeping tabs, it feels good to wait together.

Re: From purple rhapsody to black hole, a literal killer bez

Wise decision to follow your heart and choose the dreamring. And since the designer knows you are after maximum light return, the outcome will be more in line with the look you envisioned.

It looks fabulous!! How will the jeweller ensure that the bezel will not darken the stone? We talked back and forth about a lot of different ideas. The bezel in this design is very delicate (compared to the old one) and the cutwork will be designed to allow maximum light to reach the stone. I was t...
