For someone who loves Christmas as much as I do, it's extraordinary that I have previously had no Christmas jewelry! So this year, DH arranged for me to have three pieces - all with a Christmas theme.

Firstly - and most importantly, to me - my 18kt yellow gold and ruby coat pin. This will go on my coat and stay there forever. I LOVE this pin! It's a large piece, but hugely elegant nonetheless. Meet Miss Holly!

To give an idea of size, the 'berries' are 4.7mm each. They're very red and clean and don't black out in any lighting conditions.

Next - my new ring! I bought this glorious rubellite from @Bron357, who gave me the deal to end all deals (thank you, @Bron357!!) The ring is set with 2 beautiful Yvonne Raley tsavorite garnets and 4 x 2.7mm H&A diamonds (2 are Ascendancy diamonds from GOG and 2 were H&A hand picked diamonds from DKJ).

These photos were taken before the prongs were finished and the rng is currently in transit to me. I wanted to post all three pieces, so the ring is being posted before it was entirely finished. There's certainly enough here, tho, to give a general idea!

Oooooo that ring looks scrumptious and even Christmas themed.
great to see a piece of the hoard rightfully installed into something beautiful.

Beautiful Christmassy pieces! I want to say I particularly love the Brooch, but the Tree charm and the Red & Green ring are so special too -- wishing you joy every time you look at and wear them!

Thank you so much, @marymm! I love the brooch, too. It's god a LOT of gold in it, and is my main gift from my DH. The textures on it - curves and angles - are just mesmerizing to my eye. <3

Awww - thank you, @tyty333 - I'm so glad you like them! And Merry Christmas to you and yours! :wavey:

Thank you so much, @luv2sparkle - that's so nice of you to say! And Merry Christmas to you, too! :))

Laughing here - thank you, @canuk-gal! :mrgreen:

@TheGarnetGirl - I have to say, I agree with you! It's a very eye-catching piece - nothing shy or retiring about it! But on the other hand, in no way garish. I love it!

Thank you, @MissGotRocks - the charm is the most overtly Christmas-y of the three, and no charm bracelet of mine, which was honestly representative of my life, could get by without some sort of homage to Christmas!!

Thank you, @RayRay - I've seen a lot of Christmas tree charms, but nothing like that. SO I designed it myself in the end!

Thank you, @Rubies-R-Me. :)) It really is about time I had some Christmas baublies! I'm very much looking forward to seeing how they trimmed the prongs on the ring. They're much less obvious in real life, but even so - they still needed a good trim!

Hi @Catmom - and Merry Christmas! :wavey: I thought of you a LOT while I was having these made and I figured you would like the pin the best! Now all I need to do is have a Christmas beetle made and attached to it, and it would be almost perfect for you!! :))

Thank you, @DorotheaBrooke :)) I love the idea of being able to put on something special for Christmas, tho I have to say, that ring looks wonderful at any time!

Hi @KaeKae :)) I love them all too! And I think your usage of exclamation points was very restrained, given the circumstance! :mrgreen:

Hallo @diamondseeker2006 - and Merriest of Christmases to you and your family! I will do, re the coat photo. I have a lovely new black coat on which I want to wear my new pin and I think the shiny gold will look perfect against it. ::)

With your stunning brooch, I would be tempted to pop little loops on the underside of the twig ends and then you could convert to a necklace if you felt so inclined.

Beautiful, love the reds and greens, so festive! That tree charm is just so cleverly designed and pretty- is it all by D Klass?
