    Some new bling arrived for me from Ivy & Rose! Love them! It’s a 0.65 ct blue sapphire in a pretty art deco setting and a 1.2 ct hot pink tourmaline in this very cool setting that I would describe as 90s-modernist (if someone has a better descriptor, please chime in).

    I’m crazy about the pink tourmaline (rubellite?), which is so clean and so brilliant against the row of diamond baguettes sitting below. The ring setting challenges me in many ways because it’s so pointed and the setting is way higher than my comfort zone. But it’s so unique and I had to have it.

    Love them both but the setting for the blue is awesome @peacechick

    Really shows off the stone!

    Thank you! I bought it for the setting and the option of the sapphire was so reasonable it saved me the trouble of sourcing a stone to put in it! But I’m glad you like the sapphire in it as I was wondering whether to swap it out with a demantoid garnet I have coming,

    I love the sapphire in its setting as-is, too. The triangular setting with the hot pink tourmaline...I'm starting to see a fox face. :P2

    I've been looking at art deco settings on their site too. I bought a cute little topaz which is only my second gemstone purchased :oops2: and I need a low-cost setting for it.

    I’m so lucky to be able to post another ring! This is my first piece from David Klass with a garnet from Barry Bridgestock. These are David’s pictures as I haven’t received the ring yet. I know the garnet is kind of dark but I still loved it enough to have it set!

    It arrived but I haven’t had a chance to see it in sunlight! I’m so happy with it! It came out just as I wanted and hoped! It’s definitely a dark garnet but it is constantly flashing beautiful rich red.

    I’ve read this board regularly for the past couple months, and love seeing your beautiful pieces :) I got engaged last week, and know this is the beginning of my CS obsession.

    We got my ring from James Allen. 8x6mm sapphire in the platinum falling edge halo setting. My main requirements were a lighter blue, clear sapphire. The stone we chose shifts from purple to bright blue depending on the lighting. I couldn’t love her more :kiss2:

    The color is absolutely beautiful! Color change sapphires are like having two stones for the price of one!

    I just received this garnet wire wrap ring from spun_in_silver_designs on Instagram. I always worry garnets online would be too brown, but this has a nice purplish hue.
