    Wow, beautiful blue! Tell us more, we love a good ring story! Can we get a hand shot, please? The halo is so interesting, wonder what it looks like from the top.

    Thank you, @MissyBeaucoup!

    Wow, you mounted them yourself? I have thought about buying settings and putting in the center gem myself, but it looked like a very involved process on Youtube. Did you cut notches in the prongs before bending them to the gem?

    Your pink spinel and orange spess rings are beautiful!

    Seconded, I would like to see a top view, too, @tagyana.

    :love::love:It looks even better in the handshot!!! No window, and it looks 3cts+ :roll2:

    I would personally call it royal blue. The term "cornflower" can mean different shades/hues to different people, and in my opinion is a lighter shade of blue than your sapphire. Some may call it Kashmir blue, but to my eyes Kashmir blue from the photograph books showcasing museum quality gems have a tinge of violet. Yours looks like a luscious, pure and vivid blue.

    Thanks so much for sharing! :geek2:

    You can buy prenotched mounts from eBay or Etsy and you also need a pair of small jeweller’s pliers. Silver settings are quite easy, and not expensive if you mess it up. I think rounds are easy to set, but ovals and cushions are challenging. My spinel is poorly set because I couldn’t get it even but it’s secure, so I’m fine with it.

    I wanted to share a couple rings I just finished. A spessartite in patinated silver (I might try to get it darker, I wanted to get it almost black) and a hessonite in a lotus setting. And them together for color comparison. Sorry about my hands.

    I would call that a very nice royal blue too!

    Gorgeous red spinel and very nice finger coverage!

    Your emerald collection is to die for!

    I got the emerald suite at an estate sale. The red spinel is new, made by a private jeweler for me. I had my eye on that particular stone for SIX YEARS! yes, you read that correctly. I said to him, "when are you going to accept the fact that the spinel is my stone and nobody else is going to buy it?" . He finally sold it to me for a price I was willing to pay. Then he let me choose a nice setting from his wares. As for the ruby ring and the diamond engagement ring, I got those as gifts from Hubby. He bought them many years ago from Zales jewelers.

    My 1.5 ct black/grey and/or extremely included diamond.

    20180709_125145.jpg 20180709_124908.jpg

    I've been reluctant to share this one because everyone has perfect stones (I know the diamond boards would hate this) and this one is objectively one million percent imperfect. But I love it so much and it represents everything I love about geology, and it is my engagement stone. I just reset the stone from its original high open 4-prong solitaire into this new home. I'm super excited to have a setting that I love and that secures the stone so much better.

    I love the setting! It transforms your colored stone into a delicate flower. :kiss2: Where did you get the setting? I have a teal-colored sapphire I want to set into a 5-petaled flower.
