Re: My pink diamond heart ring!!

That is gorgeous! I really like the shape of that heart and how the setting accentuates and repeats the shape. Lovely design.

Re: Purple rhapsody/Sapphire from Finewater

This sapphire really is exquisite! Congratulations I was actually to the jeweler's today, where they said they can't make the same design with the sapphire, because it has such a fat belly and won't fit. So they will make a regular bezel. Do you mean it will be fully enclosed instead of a semi-beze...

Thanks texaskj, I'm glad you appreciated the garlic photos. I love the color combination, but somehow the whole thing made me laugh, what with the garlic, the sand and all. :lol:

Gorgeous sapphire! I hope it fits perfectly in your ring! What are you going to do with the old spinel, since that has so much sentimental value? Thanks jstarfireb. That's a good question. I'm looking at the spinel now, sitting here on my finger and it's still gorgeous to me. I think I will let it ...
