    My new three stone spinel ring. It’s untreated red spinel from Tanzania, a lovely dark red with no orange, pink or brown to my eye. The stones are small but well cut with no windowing.

    Both your rings are so gorgeous! The yellow daisy cushion makes me so happy to look at and I love that last shot of your aqua!

    I like it! Did you set it yourself? Are those spinels 4x3mm? They look close, to my eye. I've been eyeing some color change garnets that are 4x3mm from Yvonne Raley, and that ring setting looks perfect for that size. Can you let me know where you got the setting from?

    Ah, I didn’t set this one myself, it’s in white gold and I bought the ring from an Etsy seller. The stones are 5x4 so you are close!

    If you’re interested in setting your own stones, I would suggest starting with a larger round stone of at least 6mm. There is a learning curve as you have to hold the stone in place and it will be hard to do with a small one. As for vendors for silver settings, I recently posted in the thread in the Fashion Jewelry subforum =)2, you can look there. Do remember you must ask for pre-notched prongs as we lack the skill or tools to notch them ourselves.

    this is lovely, I really love how the cab glows against the diamond meelee. Combine with the size, such a standout “subtle beauty”!

    Thanks, Rubybrick, but it is not cabochon. It's a faceted native cut gem, 1.14 ct. I know there are some faceted cabochons, but this one is flat on top, just hard to capture the cut in photos. Here are a couple more pictures, in weak natural light and under camera flash. In the top one you can catch some facets. A cabochon would not have the dark colored areas under flash. The stone is more red in person and shows up more red on my camera than on my computer. Under sunlight, it really glows, but I live in the desert and don't fancy going out of doors to photo my ring.

    Beauty is pain! But seriously though, I can't even imagine what the desert heat is like right now. It's "only" 97-99 degrees where I live; I stepped outside for a moment to take some pics in the shade and was like "F this" and went back inside the house.

    You got it set! It’s beautiful! The halo style really accentuates its elongated shape!

    I inherited this jade cocktail ring when I got married. I think it belonged to my mom’s godmother, who was a Buddhist nun, but I can’t remember for sure. :oops:

    Was messing around with a few ring in the garden recently. I swear the neighbours think I’m weird!
