Hand shots of my tsav-and-spinel ring that came in under $1250. Sorry if my skin looks all different shades; my camera tends to pick up lots of blue/purple, so I used the "auto-correct" feature to try to get the gem color accurate instead of my skin tone accurate. It does sit rather low.

If that chrysoberyl was an untreated sapphire, it would be $$$. It’s a nice bright, durable and well cut gem. Beautiful ring!

That is one elaborate setting!with diamond halo on the side as well! I tried a few settings and felt that the more posh looking setting makes the stone looks more expensive than it actually is

@TL
Thank you! If it were a sapphire, I probably cannot get the satisfaction of being able to post it on this thread:P2

Ah, the days when gold was $350/oz, diamond melee was cheap, spinel and tsavorite were not that popular, and paraiba was easy to find at great prices, These were all under $1k. I think the most expensive one was the Mahenge, but because of the relatively large diamonds in the setting. It was $650 total.

violet spinel
Nigerian bubblegum pink tourmaline
Chrysoberyl
Paraiba
Mahenge spinel
Blue violet spinel (largest stone at 3 carats)
Tsavorite
Do you hear the violins playing? Because I’m feeling some major self pity over here. I can’t believe all these gorgeous rings were under $1k each. :boohoo: :lol:
Never part with them TL.

To be honest, I am often embarrassed posting my settings because so many of you have gorgeous custom made settings that are so artistically refined. I just go for your standard stock halo. :P2

I live for the stones though, as I won’t be alive forever, and I want instant gratification, so stock settings!!!

Thanks to everyone again for the kind words.

Congratulations, @dk168 ! I like your pretty ring! Does the zircon change colors in the light? The blue is quite a nice shade.

Enjoy it in good health! :appl:

B0A07A81-3E59-400A-B6BB-FBDF2A049F95.jpeg My pearl, diamond and 14k gold ring. 20 years ago, there was a store going out of business, and the ring, originally over $2k ( I saw it on sale for that price before the store announced it was closing ), was liquidating their merchandise. The ring sold for $250, and I didn’t care for the more pitted center pearl, so I had replaced it with a much nicer 11mm bluer sheen Tahitian that I bought from a pearl dealer for around $100. I get so many compliments on this ring.

970014B4-081B-46AC-A129-ACF239BB39F7.jpeg I usually don’t wear this cuprian tourmaline very much, but I love the setting. 18k vintage design with bright white sparkly diamond melee. The tourmaline is precision cut from a horrible native cut, but it came with a GIT memo saying it was copper beating. It’s 8mm with a very high crown. It looks more like an aquamarine though than a cuprian. That’s not a window, but a tilt window. It exceptionally well cut.
Ooh, where did you get this awesome setting, T L?

Thank you!
eBay seller “Lord of the Gem Rings.” I bought it about 15 years ago I think, and when gold was around $400/oz. The diamonds are full cut white and clean.I don’t think their settings are the same high quality as they once were, or as heavy.
