Adding to my blue spinel fettish . A 2.8 carat Tanzanian blue spinel I had for ages in a gem box. It’s medium tone and I love the luster, scintillation and sparkle that photos fail miserably in showcasing.

Luster!!

I would love to see your collection of blue and lavender spinels all together. One of yours (a lavender blue) I've never forgotton.

Pink spinel. I forget the carat weight, but it’s around a 9x7 oval. I’ve had it for eons. I just got around to setting it 0869F5B8-C48C-472A-84DF-C480041BDD87.jpeg 038449B4-60AF-4E4F-BD09-99A15E70FDD6.jpeg 81F1AF2D-87B1-4BB0-8DDF-80C64241385C.jpeg

Oh TL what a beautiful setting! Did you have it made?

Thanks LD! It’s a high quality gold plated silver setting. I can’t afford gold anymore (kids in college).

Thank you @LD .I actually have a thread with all my spinels somewhere. I have to find it. I’m addicted to blue, violet and lavender spinels, as you’ve probably figured.

Was the lavender blue you referenced a cushion?

I think this aquamarine is around 27 carats. I’ve had it for about 10 years and I absolutely love it.

That's lovely. I know that aquarmaines are more valuable when they are more blue and less green, but personally I love the blue-green colour the best. I also really like the combination of the aquamarine's cut and the ring's setting with the three diamonds on the side, quite sculptural looking.

I love those tab prongs that accent that emerald cut shape :)

Not quite an e-ring but I just got this opal ring from Epilogue Antiques. It's exactly like her pictures on IG :kiss2: IMG_20210507_100748833.jpg

I just love opals with a deep saturated turquoise blue base. Lovely!

My beautiful new opal ring just arrived today and I can't stop staring at her. I posted a thread in the Show Me the Bling Forum, but I realized she's a colored stone, so belongs here.

Specs:
3.43 ct. Australian Jelly Opal
.80 diamond melee (baguettes and rounds)
900 Platinum ballerina setting
size 4

Looking for ideas on 3 stone sapphire engagement rings. I would love to have a sapphire in center with diamonds on sides.

Found this one which I like:

https://exoticgoldjewelry.com/gia-n...k-sapphire-platinum-18k-gold-engagement-ring/

They also have another one with blue sapphire in center which is nice but I think the pink sapphire one looks nicer.

https://exoticgoldjewelry.com/gia-c...amond-blue-sapphire-platinum-engagement-ring/

Which one should I go with? Any other recommendations?

Thanks

I like the one with side pears, more unique and get more finger coverage. The one with blue sapphire is a more traditional style and you can’t go wrong with that. You may get more ideas if you post a new thread.

Just a few days left to the month of emerald. I never wore the one on my pinky. I got the emerald for an empty setting that I had when I reset the original middle stone. One emerald looks bigger than the other but weighs less. Any guess which one it is?

the one on the left?

Yes! =)2 The one on the left is 0.20 ct heavier but side by side the one on the right always ’looks’ bigger. My friends always commented on how big it looks. I supposed because it’s cut slimmer and longer, and also set in a halo.

I received two rigs from Nancy Jain of NNJGemstones on Etsy. Both stones from Desert_Rose: a glowy Mahenge spinel and a yummy spess. :kiss2: I'd never purchased from NNJ before, but I am very happy with the results, turnaround time, and communication.

Both of the rings are beautiful and the spess is glowing! :love:

I am crushing on your spess - that is just about the most perfect color ever. I don't typically like rings with multiple colored gemstones, but the spinels? sapphires? with that spess are stunning. And I love the proportions - the result is such a delicate halo and lovely ring.
