Oh gosh a ruby would be next on my list although I'm really loving the spinels too! I think the piece as a whole has something so special to carry that charm and history along with it. Imagine how much it was loved in its previous lifeIsn't the history neat as anything?! I am so deeply curious about who wore my ring before I did! I'm thrilled to meet a fellow emerald lover. There's nothing quite like them in my opinion Rubies are a veeeery close second, though!
Thank you for saying so!! I can't tell you how thrilled I am that others love it too. I am housebound and don't get a chance to talk about jewelry often, or to show off my favourite pieces. (My poor husband listens but jewelry is not his thing!) I would dearly love a weekly meet where we all just show off our baubles, even ones we've all seen before, and talk "shop." That would be heavenly! Coffee, and maybe wine, would definitely have to be involved.WHAT a ring! I LOVE everything about it!
You're very sweet to say so! Do look for one that speaks to you. It's dizzying, the number of hues and levels of clarity that emeralds can have, and that's not taking lab-created ones into account. Emeralds are ineffably lovely. I absolutely adore them, perhaps obsessively! (I have a couple of pairs of emerald earrings and an emerald pendant. I cannot get enough of them! Well, my budget tells me otherwise, LOL.) The right emerald will glow at you, even in dim light, and they go with any skin tone. I like wearing emerald jewelry with a red blouse and being instantly Christmassy (The other way 'round can apply, too! I love rubies almost as much as I love emeralds! I haven't yet found "the one" ruby ring yet, though.)Wow... you are making me want an emerald!!! Gorgeous rings!
You're right, spinel is equally lovely! Aren't rubies and spinels either closely related, or identical? I have read conflicting information about that and I am sure someone on Pricescope can clarify this for meOh gosh a ruby would be next on my list although I'm really loving the spinels too! I think the piece as a whole has something so special to carry that charm and history along with it. Imagine how much it was loved in its previous life
Thank you. No thread about the ring but I did do one about the diamond as it was difficult back then to find antique cuts in the ukThey're truly spectacular! Pricescope has SUCH amazing rings! Is there a thread about your pretties?
Oh, thank you so much! They mean a lot to meEmeraldCity,
I love both of your emerald rings!
I also perked up when I heard you say you wear the antique daisy emerald everyday.
I haven’t gotten my emerald ballerina ring yet but I will shortly and I intend to wear her. I’m secretly terrified of banging her up but I don’t buy jewelry to have it sit and stare at the inside of my jewelry box...it’s meant to be enjoyed.
So, do you have any tips for daily emerald wearing?
I would be delighted to post more pics of the square cut ring! Would it be better to start a new thread or append pics to this thread?Would you pls show us more of your square cut emerald ring too! How smashing that you get to pick which one to wear!
I would rock them together!
Thank you for saying so! I agree, I found it charming to observe the care taken by the jeweler as well S/He was incredibly careful and did a great job. I have wanted so many times to be able to thank the person who made this ring with such care, but that's perhaps the only sad aspect of this ring, knowing that this person has passed away. Whoever they were, they were a master jeweler. Absolutely flawless work.What a beauty! Thank you for sharing pictures and so much detail surrounding the build of the setting - the fact that the jeweler adjusted for each unique side stone is a charming detail.
I am deeply honoured by your words!! I wish you well in your journey to find the right emerald ring for you. I think there is an element of kismet to the whole thing; I am sure the ring is trying to find you as much as you are trying to find it.@Emerald City that ring is a treasure, and I would love nothing more than to find its equal one day! Emeralds are my birth stone, and I have loved them since I was little, but I also know how abusive I can be to my jewelry, and like you, I would want to wear something that beautiful on a daily basis. May it bring you life long happiness!!
I am touched by your kind words; thank you I am truly amazed by the ring's age; every now and then I stop and say to myself, "Holy !#@!, this ring is over 100 years old!" and just stare at it in wonder. Such a history! Oh, I wish I knew who owned it before I did!!! Getting a bit maudlin, I also wonder who will own it after I do. After all, we are all just caretakers for our beloved pieces. <3This ring is so beautiful.
So amazing to think that the ring has been around for over 100 years and it still looks so good and brings so much joy to it’s owner.
