    Just beautiful!!! All your gorgeous rings - that delicate rose gold band looks so pretty with the larger rings and that opal ring is out of this world! Thanks for sharing! And last but not least I love your wide eyed pretty kitty cat in your profile pic :)

    I have a question please to all those who live in the States... has anyone bought from Mene jewellers ... I’m really keen to give it a try and get some charms as all their jewelry is 24k with certification their site says and they ship intl by fedex, please share any thoughts or experiences thanks!

    OK, I haven't been in here for a while, but I see that I should visit more often.

    I've had these for a while now, and I'm sure I posted these elsewhere, but they really belong here, so here they will go for posterity. ;)) This is my set of black opals, all in 22K, again with the granulation I love. :))

    Thank you! And yes, they are. And you can't see it in the pic, but the clasp on the pendant is an intricate handmade bit of work with moving parts and lots of wirework, since it opens to become a pearl-enhancer.

    Sadly, the woman who actually executes that high-karat work, is retiring. There aren't there many jewelers in the US who can do that sort of work. I only know of a couple, but no more than that. So I feel very fortunate to have some of her work.

    24667362-8871-4D62-BB28-1108D1A3C3C5.jpeg I might as well add this. I have cool colored skin so the pair stays in the deposit box. Maybe I can pass this onto my niece in the future? Possibly 22k or more. They were heavy :eek2:

    My first high carat solid gold piece, a 22k yellow gold pendant with alexandrite cat's eye and a Fijian keshi pearl. I am really happy with how that turned out!
    So hard to photograph the green appearance of the gemstone but so much fun to watch. And in diffuse lights where the stone does not look its best, the pearl really shines and shows of all the colours, they really complement each other.

    What kind of necklace would you put it on? I still need to get one of the right length - and was thinking rolo/belcher oxidised silver maybe?
    I feel delicate modern times gold would look odd with the unearthen-handmade-ancient look of this.
