@icy_jade, I know what you mean. I call it “sheen”, like what you see on really nice moonstones!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?)
Awesome! I have been watching on IG, can't wait to find the "one".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...
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.You have a great collection of bands! You scored the ruby and emerald rings for excellent prices, too
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.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.
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
I'm happy to recommend but I'd like to ask his permission firstThat’s really pretty, @Tartansparkles! Gorgeous zircon colour. I think you are UK based?
