Love this ring, thanks for sharing!

DK :kiss2: :kiss2: :kiss2:

Are you kidding? I'm gonna keep sharing it and sharing it until you're all sick of it. :lol:

stunning! congrats!

Thank you! :D

Wow, can't wait to see hand shots so that you know, we get loads and loads more pictures!

I should have it in a couple days and I'll be right here sharing it all with you guys. :mrgreen:

Freaking WOW!!!!!

Thank you! :love:

Oh my gosh!! I love Clover :love:! I know how much effort you put in to getting the details of the ring design just right, and it is perfect!! I’m so happy for you!! Congratulations!

Thank you so much! It really was a long and frustrating process for me. I'm so, so happy to see all my hard work actually paid off in the end. A big part of that is the David Klass jewelry team, of course. They were invaluable in helping me bring my vision to life. :kiss2:

Throwing an idea into the mix, how about setting each of the Tsarvorite in a petal-shaped surround?

THANK YOU for sharing all these beauties with us! Did you ever set your pair of stunning grandidierites?

Actually, no. I couldn’t figure out what to do with them so I eventually sold them. They really were gorgeous so I hope the person who bought them found a way to let them shine.

I pulled all of my pink (unset) gems out of my gem box today. It turns out pink is taking up a lot of space in there. :lol:

Leave off buying any more loose pink gems for new-to-PS people!

Can I shop with you? Beautiful collection
Absolutely! And the best part is we can do it in our pajamas. :mrgreen:

I wish I could. I swear, I have zero self control when I see a beautiful pink gem. I’ve just gotta have it. :lol:

Can you share more re the awesome big pink in the middle?

Sure. It’s a 2.07ct Mahenge spinel. I picked it up from GranGem on Etsy. I’ve actually had it for a couple years now but I haven’t gotten around to setting it yet (waiting for inspiration to strike).

I saw this rough in Jeff’s recent gem scoop and I just couldn’t resist getting one for myself.

Light to Medium tsavorite garnet.

This is my piece. It’s medium saturation and should cut somewhere between 1ct - 1.7ct.

Beautiful! Is that Jeff Davies? Whats the experience like for buying rough? Do you pay for the rough and then pay for the cutting fees?

This is actually from Jeff White. I don‘t believe he sells rough as is so each purchase is also a commissioned cut. Jeff gave me an idea of size and shape as well as the total cost.

Once you agree to the price, you would pay a non-refundable deposit.
The gem gets cut and you can approve the final piece and pay (or pass on it but lose your deposit).
