Here's a unique dragonfly ring in 18k rose gold that managed to qualify within the budget. Russian demantoid garnet, Afghani emerald, Mahenge spinel and Burma spinel, created by yours truly and Daniel M. Tagging @TheGarnetGirl because I have a feeling that she might like this one.

You were right! This is stunning! The colors work so well in this ring. It is beautiful! Thank you for tagging me! I haven't been posting or lurking that much here so Idk if I would have found it!
I need to post my purchases but im so darn lazy right now!

Could I trouble you for an image with your cat, butterfly, & this dragonfly beauty on one hand?
I think this dragonfly is my favorite but I need to see it next to the others!

Another beauty for the collection voce!

It's dusk, so not much light coming from the window. I included Miss Bee because she belongs among garden critters, too. Maybe I will need a lady bug at some point for my pinky?

I keep forgetting to add this one. Stones are from Brad at the gem trader and setting is Dan M. The Pala Tourmaline and benitoite were under $250. The setting was 4 something.

She plays well with my CRD benitoite band which also came in under 1250.

Bumping this with my YAY ME! ring -- some of JA's colored stones are very inexpensive (or, y'know, probably about "market rate" for being windowed and not-trade-ideal colors). But combined with free setting and their 25% off settings sale, they hit my sweet spot for a fun ring. I had it engraved with "She persisted," because I did :mrgreen:, and I have always loved periwinkle sapphires. This one is windowed and not spectacularly saturated, but bezeling has helped both of those things and I'm really happy with it.

@evergreen It's lovely! I bought a few settings during their sales, but never a stone. Yours is very pretty and so elegant in that setting!

And congratulations on persisting! Love that saying and that you put it on your ring!

They couldn't fit the, "Nevertheless," :lol: but I think the intent comes through! Thank you :)

TBH I couldn't figure out how to buy just a setting -- do you have to Actually Talk To A Person? There is a setting I have loved and may just duplicate (and improve upon, naturally) but couldn't figure out how to buy by itself. Then I thought, maybe I'll just have them chuck a $400 emerald in there & wear it like that until I get tired of it or the emerald gets broken, and then I started scrolling through the sapphires, and THEN -- well, anyway, but: Dear World, JA's cheap CS make for many <$1250 ring opportunities during the 25% off sales. :D

@Acinom I have been on a PS posting blitz lately (I feel like I have "rediscovered" jewelry, ha!) and I had better stop mucking around on here and Do Some Work Today, but thank you so much and I will try to post a thread later!

They only sell certain settings without any stone at all. There aren't many and you are able to add them to your cart and purchase them on your own. For setting your own stone, you have to call them. They only set diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds. They will send you a shipping label, too. Setting is $100.

This is such dangerous information.

I paid $450 for this baby peach-orange-pink (sunset) 0.85ct unheated sapphire from Madagascar and $270 for 14K rose gold custom setting. I guess the work of setting the stone was free. Shipping from Sri Lanka was also free. The seller upgraded the material to 18K rose gold for free too. Lucky me! :D
The first video is seller's and the second is my daughter's (of course she got a new toy, but I enjoyed a process of buying).

This little ring is going to be a present to my older granddaughter on her 16th birthday (she will be 3y.o. in September :lol:). I desperately needed some springtime fun so I bought a 1ct stone and then asked for a ring to be made. The heat only sapphire from Sri Lanka was $500 and the setting was $600. The setting is 18K YG, the clarity of the little diamonds is VVS1 and they should be "white". Shipping is free. I just saw the videos of the ring several hours ago. I know nothing else about the setting, but I think it is sweet, cute and the stone is beautiful. I didn't expect such a significant color change in the stone after it had been mounted. Good thing the tone wasn't initially dark, a young 16y.o. girl needs something light and bright, nothing dark and dull IMO.
All video's are vendor's.

So pleased to be able to add this ring to this thread! I won the 9x11mm amethyst in one of Jeff Davies’ eBay auctions and sourced the silver and orange/pink spinel from Yvonne. The setting was done by Daniel M.

I'm amazed that the ring qualified for this topic, there is a lot of gold, detail work and time put into this piece!

Is there a way to filter or some other indication of the ones that can be purchased separately? I can’t figure out how to find the ones that are sold separately.

Pretty! I'd love to have my new Columbian emerald in this kind of setting except in rose gold with a matte finish.
