Icy jadeite ring from Kathy Jade coming in just nicely under the mark thanks to their anniversary sale :)

Love it cos it’s such a simple and wearable design

In the shade and a few in sunlight cos wanted to show the “ying guang” (what’s the English translation for that?)

Do you mean the reflected light from the bottom of the stone ?

@icy_jade, I know what you mean. I call it “sheen”, like what you see on really nice moonstones!
Nice jadeite

Adularescence is probably what you're thinking about, if you are comparing it to moonstone.

I cross post between both platforms and am available by phone or text and post that info within each post. All my photos are done in natural light and depending on what time of day it is plays a huge part in the overall look of a stone. I usually don't frequent the forums anymore but thought I would respond to your questions personally. Have a great week...:)
Awesome! I have been watching on IG, can't wait to find the "one".

My under $500 ruby band from Lancastrian in IG

Had my local jeweler make this with some inexpensive self sourced Emeralds. ~400

Coming in under the wire and thankfully sales saved me, my hand engraved benetoite from Yvonne at CRD.

You have a great collection of bands! You scored the ruby and emerald rings for excellent prices, too :)

Thanks! Bands are very unicorny, they have to be the right size so I just stalk a lot of websites. I also try and buy them a bit larger.

I feel like I have big hands (size 7) so my options are big rings or lots of little ones all together :)

Earlier in the year I bought an antique pin with blue zircon. My idea was a pin to ring conversion which as it turns out is not as simple as I thought it would be!

Anyhoo, I now have my ring in hand and despite two tiny niggles to do with balance/symmetry and the tiny diamonds being in slightly the wrong place, I'm delighted.

I bought the pin, DH paid for the labour, my mum and MIL contributed gold charms and the 4 single cut diamonds came from my gran's art deco E-ring (long story but it was a remake that went bad and 4 tiny stones were left over).

If I was to do the project again there are very small changes I would make and as I said there are imperfections in the execution. But the ring was made by hand with nothing more than my sketches given to the jeweler over the counter in his busy shop. So I'm happy to live with it as it is :)

That’s really pretty, @Tartansparkles! Gorgeous zircon colour. I think you are UK based? Would you recommend the jeweller, despite the glitches? Worth adding to the thread about U.K. jewellers? I know I have at least one thing I’d like made at some point with no clue where to start with finding someone to do it.

I'm happy to recommend but I'd like to ask his permission first :)
